The condom motif isn't even off-putting; kind of wild, aesthetically pleasing and delicious with a world-class message. Condom art. Posters on HIV and safe sex, but I don't think they were holding any learners classes while I was having lunch. On to the food.

I finally got my crispy duck. It was served in a salad with mint, peanuts, roaste chilies, cilantro, mango matchsticks and a nice light rice vinegar dressing.

The panaeng prawns was (were?) served on a bed of basil. Not a soup-like panaeng curry, but not terribly thick either. Just enough to coat the prawns with enough left over to spoon over the rice.

Deep fried pork with pepper and garlic was delicious. Still tender while a dry preparation covered with the garlic and pepper. Might have benefited from a side sauce but really not an issue.

The combo white and red jasmine rice was actually interesting; well, not so much the white as it was basically white jasmine rice. Didn't know jasmine came in red, and it was very much like Himalayan red rice, crunchy and tasty.

Can't wait for the next trip to Bangkok!!!!

The atmosphere is effervescent here. Food is very good and the theme is a fantastic way to promote safety and hygiene in a country that desperately needs some sex education awareness! The service could be better.

Yes, it is for a great cause, and yes, the condom decorations are good comedy value, but it is a lovely place to eat also. Prices are mid-range, we paid less than £20 for great food and drinks for two and the atmosphere is lovely. Book if you definitely want to sit in the courtyard outside, the perfect holiday meal. And it is a VERY good cause.

What a fun and interesting place! A great BKK landmark. All the food was wonderful, very extensive menu. A choice of outdoor, indoor seating and entertainment during the meal. All this and a great educational experience - it really is a fascinating venue.

This is a very big restaurant with no attention for the guests. The food taste good but not fantastic and is very expensive and the serving are very small (the usual little basket of sticky rice was even not filled to the half). We surely never will go back there.
