“Go at night, sit outside”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

The whole place is open air, but it's worth it to sit all the way outside, by the plumeria trees and with a view of the water. Gorgeous.

Apple has some of the best English I have encountered in Thailand, and it is definitely worthwhile to engage her in a conversation. She is passionate about the food, and will give you recommendations for how it is best served (level of spiciness the dish can accomodate without losing character and balance of other tastes...)

Ask for Apple's input, tell her what you like, and she will recommend things off the menu and then explain why you would like them. TRUST her. she isn't pushy about it, but it's worthwhile.

Try the blue pea tea (one of the versions at least, I think we had the one with honey). It is unique and delicious.

The coconut ice cream is incredibly refreshing- and is true Thai ice cream, meaning no cream- just coconut milk and coconut meat frozen and blended. so good.

Random: They can bring out a candle/smokey coil to repel bugs if you ask- otherwise, as it is night in thailand, wear repellent.

“Yum yum.”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

I first visited apple and Noi's original restaurant in 2001 and have been back any time I've been in the area. The food is simply excellent and the service is impeccable. Add in a beautiful setting overlooking the river and it's a winner all round.

“Our best meal in Thailand”
Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

Everything about our meal here was perfect.

The service was so friendly and Noi so helpful. The menu gives you lots of information about the dishes and if you're not sure what to have the staff are on hand with really helpful suggestions.

The food comes out all together (a novelty in Thailand) and is well presented and all the things we had tasted amazing.

If there's one place you have to eat in Kanchanaburi, then this is it.

“Great food & nice atmosphere”
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!
