“Amazing place, incredible food”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

The place is amazing, even with a museum. The food is perfect. Delicious. Only one bad thing: we book a table and with more than 20 free tables they gave us one with view to a car parking. But the staff is nice and helpful.

“High Class Unique Thai”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

A must stop for someone looking for a classy atmosphere, suitable for a business or romantic dinner, with excellent southern unique Thai food. The southern thai fish soup and yellow crab curry were spicy but delicious. You gets choice between endless table side servings of brown or white rice. The service is excellent.

“A Great Experience”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

This place is much bigger than it looks from the outside. You get led through a maze of corridors to the upstairs main restaurant, passing side rooms for private groups on the way.

There are lots of things on the menu that I've never seen before and for the setting the prices were very normal, though the beers were expensive at 150bt for a small bottle.

The food tasted great and the whole experience is quite unique.

Not to be missed if you are in Bangkok.

“Super delicious Thai cuisine”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This restaurant is highly recommended. Every menu here is super delicious. I love pomelo spicy salad as this is the really traditional menu and here made it perfectly.

The green curry is fantastic too. It is best serve with rice.

There are many foreigners visit so it is best to reserve the place before going. The staffs can speak English fluently.

Atmosphere is excellent. It is an old house and turn into a reastaurant and small museum.
