“Great food & nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

We really liked the food here and definitely recommend it:) The appetizer with such ingredients as chilis, ginger, dried shrimp, basyl leaf, pickled radish, peanuts, tamarind sauce which you ate by putting them together in a leaf - awesomeness! The main dishes were also very tasty, the blue rice was an original & pretty sight:) Prices were quite high in comparison to other venues or food stalls, but the wooden restaurant located right next to the river is the advantage you're looking for!

“Great THai food - best we had!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

Set right on the river it is a fantastic atmosphere to have diner in but who cares about that if the food sucks; which is not the case here - the food was the best Thai food we've had in Thailand - service was friendly and efficient!

“Interesting food with the intriguing blue rice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

The restaurant is on the other side of the river to the main back[packer restauarnts, but it is possible to walk there. The restaurant itself is by the river, and it is possible to sit in the garden. On the night we went there were many insects, and eventhough we had a fan ainmded at us on full blast, we ended up moving into themain restaurant area which though open on all sides did not seem to have such a problem. There are many interesting dishes to choose from and we eventually ordered the massaman beef 9 a signature dish), a chicken mince and pomelo salad, rice cakes with minced pork and cocnut sauce, chicken laarb, rice noodle with penang pork, and the bluie rice. The blue rice is made by cooking the rice with a blue flower similar to a nasturtium. All of the dishes were delicious. The service was prompt, although the restaurant was fairly empty.The total bill was 1040B including drinks, which given the number of dishes we ordered seemed reasonable. The location is lovely, by the river, and very peaceful. My Thai freinds are purists when it comes to Thai food, and thought he dishes were more a fusion style. I did notice howver that they ate everything. The overall consensus was that the food was very good.

There's not much to say other than the atmosphere is amazing and the food great. The owner is lovely, funny and very open. We had a great evening there and if you don't go you really miss out!!
