Local restaurant with delicious food.recommend Mango with young coconut icecream pandan & butterfly pea flower sticky rice and Mee Sua Pad.Inside, the restaurant has a very local feel, with old-style wooden chairs and tables.
Really like the old lady here not sure if she's owner of this restaurant she look very kind and speak English very well.

We found this gem when we passed by Thalang road and were thinking of getting local dessert in a hot day. The decor was strikingly beautiful and made us decide to go in and have a try. It totally brought the nostalgic mood of good old days.

Turns out that the proper lunch menu was much better than the dessert! We ordered fried tofu with tamarind sauce for a starter, and seafood tom yum and pad thai. Tofu had soft texture and pleasant overall though not overly memorable. Tom yum and pad thai were overflowing with seafood and meat, and not only that, they tasted good. This was probably the only time I had pad thai with topping (seafood and meat) that's more than the noodle. They were not the cheapest but still value for money considering the generous ingredients.

On the other hand, the dessert was expensive and rather disappointing. Grass jelly in lo han guo soup was decent, while chendol and jelly dessert were bland and didn't have firm enough texture. Looks like they were ordered from other dessert store - different quality than the rest of the experience.

We'd probably go back for more next time we're around Thaland road but we'd be mindful not to order the dessert again.

We returned several times, and would have gone back again but was closed on Sunday. I recommend the roast pork highly. Curries were great, especially panang. Tom kha gai, pad gee mao drunken noodles and veg spring rolls very nice. Morning glory with sambal sauce and crispy fish also outstanding. There are air conditioned tables a few doors down from the original shop. Prices reasonable. Worked for us!

Not a lot more to add to the title.

We enjoyed the Thai food and we found it to be quite authentic.

Yes it was a very good price.

The actual restaurant was very interesting - take time to peruse all the walls and even purchase a postcard.
