I visited this restaurant on a trip to Thailand 10 years ago and it was so good we went back the next night. I had to try it again to see if it was as good as I remembered and it really was. The food...More

We used to eat at Hemlock quite often and it became one of our favorites, but after moving from the neighborhood had not been back for several years. So, to treat ourselves, we made a special trip back for a birthday dinner. Sad to say,...More

Super Restauarant, Close to Khao San, but not the normal Tourist Food. I tried Miang Kum there the first time in Thailand and since then eat this as a starter whenever possible :)

First ate here in 2002 and come back every time I'm in Bangkok. On TA it's #256 out of over 10,000 Bangkok restaurants, which is impressive enough, but it's #1 in my book. Huge menu and I've never been disappointed. I especially love their wide...More

Years ago I read about this place. Don't remember where but it stuck in my mind which is quite strange as I don't even live in this country. Hemlock is just around the corner from the backpackers streets around Kao San road but it has...More

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
