Had this four years ago, the portion is now smaller, but the food is still fast and good. Not favored by my local friends, who considered the food too sweet and pricey for Isaan cuisine. But the fried chicken wings and mixed salad are still...delicious to my foreign taste.More

My bf and I went early, at 11 am, to avoid the lunchtime crowd. The food was splendid albeit too flavorful. The fried chicken was tasty; coconut was thirst quenching. Service was good, the staff were a tad shy although they were able to understand...English quite well. The restaurant easy to spot and conveniently located within Siam Square. We left around 12pm~ and a queue was steadily forming, on a Tues afternoon.More

The signature fried chicken was well marinated and deep fried to perfection. But on a side note, I didn't really enjoy the salted egg som tam as it was too sour. (Personal preference perhaps)

Most delicious Som Tam in town! My friends love it so much and feel should be more spicy! We love the pig liver & inhouse fried chicken wings! 😋 Will visit again!

The somtam is really good. We eat at this place every time we come to Bangkok and are visiting Siam Paragon. It is just across the main road. Their fried pork jerky is really soft and flavorful. Prices are pretty decent especially compared to the...mall.More

A restaurant with long history and good reviews. The wait is short, just about 15mins for table. Food is averagely priced. I had the spicy fried chicken, the chicken is nicely seasoned and still being able to keep its moisture after deep frying.

One of our favorite place to eat in bkk. Prices and mid range but the food has held up to standards time and again. We were quite fortunate and did not have to queue for a place at dinner time. Not sure if it was...because they have more outlets these days. Papaya salads in all forms are always a good bet. The fried chicken wings are also a crowd favorite. The mushroom tomyum was yummy too. Do tell them to go easy on the chilli if you do not like your food spicy.More

Came in around 8PM and there was a line outside. I was dining solo so it was easier for me Compared to others. They asked me if it was ok for me to sit at the bar which I politely agreed. Place was full of...locals which was a good sign. The menu is in both Thai and English with lots of pictures. I ordered a Thai papaya salad ( no shrimps) which they mistakenly gave me with shrimps. Good thing I’m not allergic tho. I also ordered a grilled pork neck and some sticky rice and some beers. Flavors were great and authentic. It was actually quite spicy! Washed it down with a few beers. Damage was around 15 USD. highly recommended!More
