Had lunch today at this very nice place. Prices are really cheap and the mataba tasted really good!! Also tried the samosa which had a nice taste. The restaurant serves small portions, but for the prices it's ok.

Had the Thai Chicken roti. A tiny bowl of chicken soup with small amount of actual chicken. Very few veges and although the taste was authentic, the quality and size of dishes has reduced. Better value elsewhere but hard to find great food in Banglamphu any more.

Quite small, but very charming and delicious food. On the menu they have a.o. biryani, a variety of Roti and Mataba, and curries such as Massaman and Phanaeng. They also serve delicious sweets as banana roti with chocolate sauce. Very friendly service!

Had green curry, chicken and veggie mataba, beef curry, and iced coffee. Everything was delicious! Best was the green curry. Fantastic and perfectly seasoned! This place is busy, for a reason. Prices were right. 120 baht for a delicious meal with a drink. Would go again.

I love roti for breakfast. Everytime we stay in the Fort area in Bangkok, this one is my favourite breakfast destination. Recommended: roti mataba with chicken, beef or fish or all of it (see photo).

The food here is extremely delicious. The food averages at about 50 baht a dish, they are a little small, but well worth the money. I do recommend the chicken massaman + rice, and the sour chicken soup! For dessert, go for the roti! It is a little small, but the dough itself is delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant...

While in Bangkok last month I dropped into this hole-in-the-wall place that I'd heard so much about with my wife just for a snack before hopping on the river ferry to go to Chinatown. We had iced coffee and iced tea and found it far too sweet for our liking. The curries looked good and the menu was easy to... More

Ignore the haters, this beat-down hole in the wall is really good, and really cheap. Compared to the other bland, over-priced thai food in this area, Roti Mataba stands out as among the very best in terms of flavor and price, at least if you want a table and fork to come with your meal. I've eaten here probably 10... More

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
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 Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
