It was quite an experience from the time we spent in the line: watching dozens of people cooking food right there on the street. We spent around 15 min waiting as there were 5 of us. We asked to be sitted inside right by the street, instead they walked us in a room at the back, which turned out to... More

Don't miss this if you are visiting Bangkok! We had had plenty of pad thai and this place truly makes the the best pad thai there is, in Bangkok or anywhere else for that matter. The pad thai is wrapped in beaten egg like an omelette. The line was long when we got there around 8:30 pm but it moved... More

If you are in Bangkok, you definitely should give this place a try. Good tasting pad thai and the price is fair. The restaurant is always busy with tourists. The orange juice is amazing, it is very sweet and has bits of real orange in it. You will not be disappointed.

This place had the best pad thai I had while visiting Thailand. I would recommend to go when the place opens as the line does get pretty long. It only opens for dinner and the price is reasonable. However, portion size was slightly smaller than other restaurants and they will keep asking you to buy their pad thai sauce. The... More

Solid food. Good service. Short wait for seating. Incredible fresh squeezed orange juice. Is it the BEST Pad Thai served in Thailand ?? Absolutely not. The Pad Thai is good, a bit unique with orange red colored noodles. As far as Pad Thai goes, I rate it 4 Stars out of 5. Its open very very late. Its very reasonable... More

Been eating Pad Thai almost all over Bangkok, so far this is the best, the flavor is so unique, presentation was good, good service, waiters can speak fair English and love the fresh orange juice and frozen coconut water, overall the best Pad Thai we ever had!

Best orange juice I've ever had! Pad Thai was great too. Friendly service and easy to find. Seriously try the orange juice.

It is a place to visit while in Bnagkok - after a long hard day of visiting all the temples along the river, take a short taxi ride to Thip Samai and you will not regret it. Watching the chefs cook batches of Pad Thai is an unique experience in itself. Order the special Pad Thai with the amazing fresh... More

This is the best pad Thai I've ever had :) It has (like most restaurants in Bangkok) the kitchen outside, on the street, so you can actually see while they're cooking. They're specialized in a few different types of pad Thai (so short menu, which from my point of view is a plus: few things very fresh and well done).... More

There are not so many options to choose but you won't be disappointed because it is the best place in Bangkok to establish pad thai
