I was reading the reviews of this restaurant and was really impressed! After a much endured traffic jam from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi, we made a beeline to this restaurant ... unfortunately, we couldn't find the place though we had the Garmin with us. Up and down Mae Nam Kwai Road we went and even asked shops around, no one seemed to know :( My husband actually asked me if they had closed shop and I said no, since the last review was in June 2014!! We were going to give up and was turning to get out using the way in, and there it was, a little restaurant/home snugged between some shops .. (A hint: Once you get into Donruk Road, cross onto Mae Nam Kwai Road, the restaurant is on the left, very near to a 'supermarket' ... before the bend that continues Mae Nam Kwai Road).
A lady came and showed us to our seats. This restaurant is really not exactly a restaurant but a home converted to a restaurant. The kitchen is right in front with some seats next to it and half the front of the house (living room??) placed with dining tables and chairs.
After taking the orders, she made her way towards the kitchen and started preparing our food, one by one and another helper was helping her cut up the meat, vegetables, etc and her child (we guess) was helping out in there too. It was a very small kitchen but functionable.
20mins later, out came the 'Tom Yum Prawn with noodles', a dish she specially made upon my daugther's request. Taste was good and well flavoured. The noodles (thai noodles) were 'al dente' .. not soggy at all. Next came the 'Pineapple Fried Rice' ... this was a surprise to us. We all tried it and taste was good. It was served with generous amount of pineapple and chicken breast meat. I found that it was just overloaded with pineapple and chicken - would have been better if they had a bit more rice. It was cooked with multigrain rice. Next came the 'Morning Glory with fried anchovies, birds' eyes chillies, and fermented soya beans', 'Green Curry Chicken' and 'Sweet and Sour Fish' ... all were tastefully prepared. However, I found the Green Curry was not as good as the rest. Taste was a bit flat, too much coconut .. couldn't taste the curry much though. Maybe the flavour hasn't set it given that curry taste better the longer it is left.
Overall, the food is good, fresh and very tasty! For all the abovementioned food plus 1 fresh coconut and bottled mineral water, we paid approximately Bht7500 which i find it really a steal!! Didn't expect that good food can come that cheap!
