“"Local Thai's Secret Restaurant"”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Would never had known this restaurant existed if were not for Thai friend's taking me there for Sunday lunch.
What a nice surprise it was,the restaurant is situated "on" the Chao Phraya so there is a lovely view,the ambiance of the place was excellent due to the setting and the friendliness of the other patrons which were all Thai people,who gave me a Wai or nice smiles,even the kids ...........
Pak -Kred is a district of Nonthaburi a northern province of Bangkok and not many tourists venture there so I think the locals are happy to meet farangs to say hello and practice their English ....
Anyway the menu was of course thai food which I thought was very good and varied,the price was reasonable both for food and drinks,the staff were efficient and friendly,so what more can you ask !!!!!!!
When you leave the restaurant there is a young man on a scooter who will go to the top of the Soi to find you a taxi,just remember to give him a tip for his courtesy.
So if you in down town Bangkok and at a loose end and not know what to do today,take the ferry from Taphan Taksin Pier to Nonthaburi pier,then find taxi to take you too "Krua Bann Rim Nam restaurant,be prepared to take half a day,but believe me it worth it,"get off the beaten track" and stop doing what other tourist's do......

“Off the beaten path”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

We ended up at Krua Ban Rim Nam one evening when intending to eat at Suan Thip, but finding the latter was already closed. We got directions to Krua Ban Rim Nam from a local security guard; good thing too, we would never have found this restaurant without clear guidance. The restaurant itself, once you get to it, has adequate parking and is loocated right on the Chao Phraya River; in fact, you sit directly over the water.... very pleasant. The structure itself is simple. To get to the dining area, you have to meander through various rooms and allies, with an eclectic collection of old photos, antiques and artifacts from bygone eras.

The staff, while speaking limited English, were very friendly and accommodating. They have an English menu that generally gets the job done. This is a purely Thai restaurant, with a big selection of dishes. We had some nice choices of shrimp patties, catfish salad, pork, garlic fried fish, vegetables, and rice. All good; the garlic fried fish was excellent.

A local Thai band was playing while we were there, but not too loud that we couldn't talk. Quite pleasant overall.

Prices were reasonable, but seemed slightly on the high side compared with other Thai restaurants of similar quality.

We'd go back, but it's not likely to become one of our favorite restaurants in Thailand.
