“Great Thai restaurant, delicious food, kids friendly!”
Reviewed 4 November 2012

We love Ban Thongkang cafe. Delicious Thai / Lao and Western food that has a unique character, lovely atmosphere, always friendly staff, very clean, and very good prices; we feed our family of 4 for about $12 and it's all great food. There is a kids corner with sofa, armchairs and toys - a real life-saver. The real bonus - all food is without MSG, which is a very rare thing in Asia. We eat there about 2 times per week since they opened about a year ago, always the best experience. Our favorite dishes: Pad Thai, Thai omelet, tom ka kai, mango sticky rice, curries, and yes, iced coffee! but there is much more! They can make it as spicy as you like it. Owner is a great Thai lady who's been a cook for ages. Located between Inthava Pharmacy and Property Services close to the entrance to Soi 09 in the area near Brunei embassy. Our top pick for a relaxed Saturday dinner. it is fun, it is pleasure, it is good food! Enjoy!

“Excellent food, excellent value - one of my VTE top 5”
Reviewed 4 November 2012

This is a wonderful low-key little restaurant with delicious food (Thai and Western) and incredible prices. We eat here 1-2 times per week because it's SO GOOD, walking distance, and can feed family of 4 with a big beer Lao for $5-$10. The restaurant is very clean, decor pleasant, and atmosphere relaxed. A great little kids corner complete with toys and games. One of my favorite VTE restaurants!
