Recommended by a friend to this traditional thai resaurant that is in a 2 storey house with garden setting. The yam soon o (pomelo salad) is very good. The phaneng phad phong (red curry with shrimp) is worth trying too.

Authentic and tradition thai food. I am a great fan of this restaurant. Lunch inside the house is very comfortable. Dinner outside is better. You must visit the 1st floor to have the flavor of the history. you must try it once!!
