What used to be one of my favorite places has taken a turn for the worse. The last time I went I had to approach the counter for service and it was as if I was inconveniencing them by placing an order. They didn't have any Mexican food, no pesto. They didn't even have soda water. They then proceeded to... More

I just been here again a few days ago. Since 10 years the have a constant good quality of coffee, food and salads. This is the reason, why there are always many people from the offices like UNICEF, FAO and UN at lunchtime. My favorite is Coffee Late, a fresh lime juice (manao ban) and spinach feta omelet or a...

Ricky's is a favorite of a number of friends in the area because while not every single dish they make is what you'd hoped, many of them are and the ingredients are high quality - as is the kitchen work. The sandwiches are often excellent, as are the sandwich wraps. The pasta dishes and fusion Thai dishes rock and there... More

to go for breakfast in the Pra Arthit neighborhood. We've been going to Ricky's (at first in another location) for over 12 years. The fruits and juices are fresh, they were the first to serve top grade teas and coffee drinks and the omletes & baked goods are great. The lunch foods look good too, but we couldn't eat every...

OK, that might be a slight exaggeration. Samsen Soi 4 has another Ricky's with a bigger menu including an English breakfast and some amazing looking burgers. The people who run it are from Buriram province and they are wonderful. Set in an old shop house this cafe seats maybe 20 people. They open around 8:00am and close early ish around... More

Ricky's is attractive from the exterior and seems popular with local residents and tourists. The menu is extensive and has something to offer everyone on paper. Unfortunately, the food doesn't really appeal to my taste and, for me at least, seems generally mediocre. For the price, I would expect better quality. I've eaten there a few times and, while not...

This place has many good points. It has great coffee, a wide variety of breakfast dishes, Mexican food that isn't available anywhere else in the KSR area, a good selection of sandwiches, nice seating and The Bangkok Post. The service is average and the manager is the most miserable man in Bangkok. I assume as 98% of his customers are... More

We went for dinner and the food was tasty and reasonably priced. The service at dinner was so-so but we figured the waitress must have had a long day. We went back for breakfast the following day and the service was worse. The menus were thrown down in front of us without any greeting and it actually felt like we... More

A trip to Bangkok would not be complete without a great coffee and Delicious Sandwich at Ricky's! Great Breakfasts and sandwiches and a great coffee to accompany.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
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.
