As above has the best Thai food out of Bangkok. Food is always tasty and fresh. Service is really good. Is hidden away at top of high street but is near car park. Well worth the visit.

This place is simply furnished with the flair of a takeaway restaurant. But the restaurant offers excellent food at a very reasonable price.

Yes definitely. It is usually very busy and it's a small place. I would say the earlier the better for lunch as one table's meal is cooked at a time. There is one cook who works in a small space so she is only able to cook... More
