“Cozy little restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

This 'living room' style restaurant has a unique relaxed vibe amidst the chaos of BKK. The Thai food is good and made en served with love by the female owner with a nice eye for details. (hence the teddy bear shaped rice) We enjoyed the smooth playing jazz music on the background. The mango sticky rice as desert is very good.

“One of my favouritest places, just... EVER.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

The style of this place, the wonderful lady who runs it, the food, the character, the biscuits her sister makes and sells in little bags outside, the way it's away from the busy part of the city. Everything about it is perfect. It even does vegetarian food, has free wifi, there's amazing coffee and there's beers and cocktails. The food was delicious every time and your rice comes in animal shapes. I loved it.

“Good food, good ambiance.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Small restaurant where I had dinner twice. The prices were very reasonable, low end of midrange. The food was prepared in a timely fashion. We were presented with taro root upon arriving. Food can be prepared to taste based on spice level desired. We ordered hot and we got it. Kids ordered mild and got it. All the food was pretty good, not great but not bad either. I would rate 8/10. We ordered vegetarian so I cant speak to their meat offerings. Mango salad and coconut soup were excellent... order them hot (spicy) if you can handle it.

“super nice small boutique restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

Small en super nice restaurant run by a very kind an honest lady, also the cook and waiter. The food is delicious and the restaurant is filled with all kinds of small dolls and art made by herself. She even got us a wok frying pan when we said we where searching for one!
And the music is also great!
