Food and menu are more innovative and unusual to the standard fare. The prices are very good and the service could have been standard in TGI F's. You are well looked after, and the food did taste great as other reviews state. Its location may be quite near the road but it makes up for it with its interior bling and attention to detail.
Should you look for a hair cut, My Hair next door is great. Hair cut 200 Thb, shampoo and blow dry 200 Thb. My hair has never been shampooed 3 times, massaged to an inch of circulation and blow dried so straight it dared not to go back curly for 2 days evenin this moisture.
Will go again to both and recommend for you too.

We stopped by this cafe for afternoon tea just based on its great reviews. The food is wonderfull and presented by the chef in such detail. The iced coffee was wondereful as were the other crab rolls and spring rolls that we had. The food was prepared by a master chef!

Do not drive past this cafe as its well worth the stop for the food, drink and chat with the staff.

Thank you Trip Advisor because we only found this place because of your website. We were starting to find our hotel food a little bland and average so looked on TA & found this place. It was so good that we ate here 5 times in 8 days and had a fantastic meal every time. The owner Vivian and his team were so welcoming and helpful when ordering. If you want the chilli toned down a little then just ask as nothing is too much trouble. The chicken curry dumplings and salmon skewers in red curry sauce are delicious starters. I particularly enjoyed the white snapper with green curry sauce and balls of perfectly ripe fresh sweet mango. The combination of flavours really worked well together and was a generous portion enough for 2 people. Vivian introduced us to his Tom Yum Martini made with lemon grass & chilli which was very moorish. All the cocktails are generous in size and unusually served in jugs or large jars which is fun.
Vivian told us he was not professionally trained as a chef but cooks from the heart. His standards and skills are right up there and quite frankly he really showed us that he understands how to combine flavours and produce delicious beautifully presented dishes. We tried most choices on the menus and were never disappointed with our meals. I don't know how he does it but Vivien can be cooking for a full restaurant and still finds time to come out of the kitchen and have a chat with all of his customers. Vivian & the team, thank you so much from Adrian & Jenny for the fantastic culinary experience - we plan to come back some time next year and we're already looking forward to your food.
One more thing - do make a reservation as this place gets very busy.
