Enjoyed simple Thai food in this, restaurant opposite novotel hotel.

Thai food is better to be shared. So try to come in at least 2 persons

Just order pandan chicken, chilli kang Kong and to tomyam kum as I was alone. Others were eating fresh shrimps, snake heads etc. No crab cake, just fish cake and shrimp cake.

Down food together with singha beer, while traditional Thai music was played live. Quite an enjoyable dinner.

Went with a friend yesterday, not our first time here, but still 2 thumbs up for the food here. We ordered a deep fried snapper with dry lemongrass, yum Woon-sen(glass noodle salad), grilled pork shoulder and tom yum seafood soup, sounds good right? I know. Although atmosphere was a bit noisy due to dinner crowd and we were put on table waiting list for 15 minutes, but it was all alright and balanced by the friendly staffs and nice food here. Don't worry if you sit down with full house of guest, food will serve about 10-15 minutes. Recommended if you are looking for really good thai food and thai desserts. Oh yes, please also try their dessert, you won't be disappointed. BKM is not a place for romantic dinner although it used to be one of the type years ago, but it still remain one of my top choice thai cuisine. Must try!

Food here is very tasty and reasonably priced. The only issue we experienced was the size of the portions of rice which are really rather small.

The selection at Ban Khun Mae is mouth-watering. Set in a stand alone hut in the heart of Siam Square, this restaurant is very heavily frequented by tourists with buses of tour groups bringing visitors to the restaurant for a stop over meal.

Very authentic setting with live thai musical instruments performance on the second level. Food was promptly brought onto the table in generous portions. Free flow of rice but I would suggest to cut back on the carbohydrates and focus on the dishes. Loved the thai fishcakes, boneless chicken, steamed lime fish, tom yum seafood soup and much more. Just as you think you aren't able to stomach more food, you will require so much discipline to resist the mango sticky rice which received so much compliments that they are also available in take-out boxes, packed to perfection for taking home with you on your flight home.

Very cheap and quick service. Great for students on a budget! Traditional Thai meals with many locals choosing to eat there. A little bit tricky to find but worth it
