Went here on our first night as it was close to our hotel! As it says in the name, the owner really is very friendly! Will give advice on where to go/see/eat/transport etc all with very cheap cold drinks and very tasty homemade thai food! Really do put effort and pride into what they serve!

Great thai food and cheap drinks. The staff is great and very friendly. Easy to hang out here for the night to play Jenga and people watch. We came here a couple nights in a row. The food is good thai food, but they also have western dishes. The cook is hilarious and comes out to make sure you like... More

Loved coming here. Owner speaks great English and the food was very good. Beef is local, as opposed to macro bought. Best part is free pool while you wait.
