Unfriendly staff, poor service, bland food. By far the worst meal we had in Bangkok. Ignore the lonely planet guidebook advice and eat anywhere else.

It's been 9 years since I was last in Chote Chitr, and quality seems to have gone seriously downhill. The mee krob was not bad, but not what it used to be. The banana flower salad that seems to be the signature dish everyone raved about was completely unremarkable, and the yellow curry with pork turned out to be a... More

We had wonderful red curry here! It was easier to find than some of the others that had been recommended to us in this area. Very small but open during the day and in between meals. We ate here in between The Grand Palace and Wat Pho about 4pm. Worth the extra 20 min walk out of the way for... More

If you have all the time in the world you should definitely check this place out. Other people were saying that they have a bad service, but to be fair, they're only 3 people working there (including the owner herself). You can imagine how slow they manage to prepare your dish one by one. Just chill and take a deck... More

We found this resto in our travel book as a must try.. The food was okay I've had better street food and the service is so so poor the owner is extremely rude. Would not recommend.

We accodentaly run into this restaurant because of Lonely Planet (2012 editon). I have to say that I can only pray for having a good night sleep withou any digestion troubles. The chicken smells like horribly and the price was above average. So sorry to say that this was just so not the restaurant we have expected.

We stopped in for lunch today and had red curry with duck and tom kha gai. Both were fantastic, with complex, balanced flavors. Portions were hearty. Service, as others have noted, was lacking--after taking our order and bringing the food, our server did not stop by again until we stood up and asked for the bill. This, however, was a... More

I'm Thai and I've been visited this restaurant for more than ten years ago. I felt that food is very good quality but today I'm very disappointed! Not only food which is bad and not authentic Thai, the service is very bad as well! Tom yam koong which is very Thai dish but the fried prawn is used to be... More

Located in a pretty and calm oasis in the heart of Bangkok's hustle and bustle, this unpretentious restaurant offers superb Thai cuisine, a huge variety cooked with love. you can ask for the special of the day or choose from the extensive menu (with English translation), it is all good! Just check the level of spicy heat with the lady.... More

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
