We had read and heard a lot of good reviews about Krua Apsorn so we included it in our itinerary of Bangkok restaurants. We stopped there for lunch after visiting the Dusit Zoo, which is close by. While the food was ok, there was nothing...More

Loved the crab souffle - great salad and fish- chicken wings are the best. It's not silver service but neither is the price. Lots of local patrons makes you feel that you're not just on the tourist beat.

It's impossible to suggest what to eat here, just order it all. If you want to move beyond Pad Thai and red curry, and eat authentic family style Thai food, this is the place. Everything is delicious, but especially the crab with yellow peppers and...More

The restaurant's facade is plainly nondesript despite its hidden gems within. Everything is no frill - it simply strives on simplicity. Two things I quickly learned soon I stepped into the restaurant: that the waiters and waitresses don't speak English, and they accept only cash...More

This place is value for money! We had tom yum goong, crab omelette and yellow curry crab. All dishes were great and inexpensive.  Only problem with this place is finding it. One of the addresses brought us 2km down the road.  This is where we...More

Great Thai food here for a great price. Some of the menu is pricier but you can get basic noodle and rice dishes, like garlic prawns with rice or chicken fried rice for around 80 baht! Tasted great and we were seated and served quickly....More

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around

Hello there! Last time, I went there by tuktuk from The Grand Palace. Just show the name of "Krua Apsorn" and you will get there for 8-15 minutes. I'm not quite sure for the evening choices.. but they open until 9 or 10 PM
