Great little place opposite Wat Po for a beer, light lunch or snack. Clean with friendly staff and a good atmosphere. Perfect when the heat gets to you and you need a break.

The food is very good and the atmosphere is friendly and casual. Just opposite the Wat Pho, the location offers an excellent break when visiting the temples. The only downside might be that it is a cash-only restaurant.

Stumbled into this inviting-looking little place after a few hours at Wat Pho. It's conveniently located between Wat Pho and Tha Tien pier, and clearly relies on tired and hungry tourists seeking a place to relax and refuel. It gets busy, has a high turnover,...More

Ate lunch here after Wat Pho since it was close and the food was very good. We were with our tour guide so she helped us order but even if she wasn't there, I'm sure whatever we would have ordered would have been great.

We visited the Rub Aroon today for lunch. It was a random visit as the heavens were about to open so we ducked inside.. The decor was nice, very Western and the place was full of Westerners, not really surprising as it's right next to...More

Right on the doorstep of the Tha Tien pier and near Wat Pho massage, this is a beacon of breath air after a long day doing the cultural sights around Wat Pho. Open-fronted converted shopfront with hand-made recycled palette furniture with cushions, easy Thai menu...More

Try the fruit shakes in this nice little bar. Watermelon, mango and coconut shakes are great when you're thirsty. Well maintained interior with old cabinet and items from the past on display.

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
