Nice restaurant that has been operative over half a decade. And no wonder: food was really good and service impeccable. Lots of options for us vegetarians as well. Nice deco, old money from seemingly every corner of the world.

"Daothiam" restaurant (founded in 1959) is a terrific place to eat and is only a five minute stroll from the train station, straight up the main street from outside the station, on the right hand side. An old fashioned family run establishment where they speak good English. Their menu is pretty extensive and interesting. Food is served swiftly, is inexpensive... More

I enjoyed my visit here, relaxing feel, quiet and friendly folk. For food, I tried the chicken cashew nut 8/10 + a small rice and a small beer, total bill was 190 baht. Restaurant is air conditioned with good free Wi-Fi and opens 7am everyday. Located next to the "pub" 7.004263, 100.470855

Was recommended by a friend who always dine there. The food are good, they provided not only Thai food but also other dishes like variety of fried rice, vegetables, dessert and drinks. The Kap Pao rice is worth to try (But spicy!) I love their Green Tea Milk so much! The lady boss is friendly enough to answer all our... More

I've eaten here many times over the years. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, I've never been disappointed. Big Thai-Chinese menu. On visit today I had an outstanding fried morning glory salad with spicy sauce and prawns. My companion had a very tasty chicken with cashew nuts (and mushrooms). Very genial staff. Spotless, attractive interior. Good value, as well.

A café with character. This joint is popular with both locals and foreigners. Ambience was homely, and the highlight was the various currencies that were framed neatly and adorned on the walls. As light, healthy eaters, we found the quality of the food above average. Noodles seemed handmade and seasoning was just right, with fresh ingredients. Portion and pricing was... More
