Not cheap but affordable home style restaurant specializing in seafood! Crab in curry powder is a MUST TRY! Huge chunks of crab meat out from the shell, you don't even have to dig it out! Other dishes such as the flower vegetable, fried fish, pad...More

The restaurant's facade is plainly nondesript despite its hidden gems within. Everything is no frill - it simply strives on simplicity. Two things I quickly learned soon I stepped into the restaurant: that the waiters and waitresses don't speak English, and they accept only cash...More

Great Thai food here for a great price. Some of the menu is pricier but you can get basic noodle and rice dishes, like garlic prawns with rice or chicken fried rice for around 80 baht! Tasted great and we were seated and served quickly....More

We've been here for dinner expect tasty food, quick service and nice environment. But what we found was dirty tables and some discarded food were in the floor. No staff were taking care of this. Also outside kitchen was EXTREMELY DIRTY. I won't come again.

Like most really good places to eat in Thailand the interior is not very appealing. But they fully compensate for with their splendid food. Not the standard tourist menu, but with very interesting dishes, quite a lot of seafood choices. The flavors are absolutely wonderful....More

Don't be surprised if you have to wait. Regardless, it'll be worth it. Many of the tables are community tables. The menu comes with pics, but luckily we went with my cousin and how wife who is Thai. Two especially delicious dishes not to miss,...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

Hello there! Last time, I went there by tuktuk from The Grand Palace. Just show the name of "Krua Apsorn" and you will get there for 8-15 minutes. I'm not quite sure for the evening choices.. but they open until 9 or 10 PM
