Baan Benjarong is an unpolished gem. The food is Thai and are excellent! Being Thais we found the food both delicious and very well prepared - lovingly cooked in a way that is very hard to find in Thailand.
The owner has a warning sign in That that patrons who are in a hurry will not be served so when you dine here expect a pace that the owner set or feel like. He, the owner, used to be the Maitre D' at the top restaurant of the old Siam Intercontinental and has set high standards for the food served in his restaurant. I have heard that sometime when the owner does not feel like it he would not open the restaurant!
Adorning the walls of the restaurant are opened bottles of very fine wines used as decoration amongst the stained glasses. I asked the owner if the opened bottles were from guests dining at Benjarong and he replied with a smile saying that they were his from his own consumption!
Through the windows is a fantastic view of the paddy fields and hills. The cool breeze that flows into the restaurant is heavenly. Decor are quirky memorabilia from the 60s and 70s and the music played are often Thai songs from those era as well.
Highly recommended but do not go there with an attitude and instead go there to relax and enjoy the fantastic hard to find food.
