Enjoyed the tasty food, especially the fish curry paste in banana leaf, BBQ (smoked) pork ribs, fresh fried fish and sautéed winter melon shoots for 800 bht. Not large portions but good food.

We ordered a big grilled fish, soup, vegetables, fried prawn cake and drinks-- all at a price of one dinner in the mall. Loved it a lot!

We rate the food highly here; barbecued pork ribs were especially good. Red duck curry was notable. Fish maw soup thick with maw and mushrooms was wholesome and memorable. Mango with sticky rice was pleasantly aromatic and most palatable. Thai Jasmine rice for all at the table. And the company of great friends crowned it as the most meaningful night... More

We bumped into this restaurant on the river. Nice atmosphere and delicious Thai cuisine. Even our 5 years old daughter enjoyed it. I would recommend this restaurant. price wise is quite cheap, for a restaurant. The menu has some dishes pictured, which I find quite helpful especially as the staff doesn't speak good English.

I also had the mango sticky rice for dessert. Everyone in our group enjoyed their... More

the friends I travelled with claimed that this was one of the best Thai food places in Bangkok (for that price) and visited it on every trip. to be honest, it is above average. I really enjoyed the curried prawns and tom yam soup. the free Wi-Fi provided inhouse is a great distraction from the long waiting times for food... More
