We visit this restaurant with friends every year, the food is always incredible. You may have to wait a little while but the food is cooked fresh so it is worth every minute. I can highly recommend the salted ribs, Tom Yum, jungle curry and tempura prawn.

He moved his restaurant from Bangrak to Lamai, but is easy to find. if you come from bophut just take the road to Lamai and after Bangkok Intern Hospital you have a big bike shop and then uphill you have a intersection at your right handside and there he is!! Best Thai food for a good price!
