Been here a few times this week for dinner and I have to say the food here is great. Prices are on the menu so there are no surprises with the bill in the end like the other restaurants near by. The owner is really friend and will help you choose a few dishes if you like. Highly recommend this... More

We searched around and came across this restaurant. Seems to always have a queue, however to start of with as they were quite busy they couldn't see everyone waiting. Once sat down we ordered and food came out quick and tasted delicious. Staff were quite good once in the restaurant and very friendly. Will probably come back for a couple... More

We came here based on the reviews and went early in the evening to avoid a queue. The place was nearly full when we got there and the staff where very busy. I had a really tasty Tom Kha Gai soup and some average spring rolls. My partner had a really delish massaman that is worth a second visit. The... More

Had the fried rice, green curry, chicken satays and banana fritters. Upon entering the restaurant I was removed from my table and told to sit next to the frozen fish as it was 'too fishy' for his shoeless wife. Next the waitresses failed to acknowledge us and chucked the monstrous menus at me. Whilst the food was hot, it was... More

Before I mention my experience, I did read the reviews with one star. They don't change the table cloths between customers (so what!). There is a lot of yelling, but is is a busy place full of hustle and bustle. They are not racist and only let Caucasian people in, we saw two large Asian families dining at the same... More

The food is overall yummy. Tom yum soup is yummy with fresh shrimp. The price is reasonable and the ptrice is cheaper compared with the restaurants nearby. Fresh food juice is good and cheap 55baht each However, there are many people and need to wait at dinner time

There is always a queue here, and that says it all about how good the food is. You need to take a number from the bar, and turn over is quick so you never wait long. Ate here on two occasions and was not disappointed with any of the dishes we ordered.
