Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a simple family owned restaurant with few seats and few dishes. The quality of the food is great and the prices are very affordable. Do not expect a fancy place.

We wouldn't have come here if we hadn't watched Rick Stein's programme. It was a little absurd because on the door it said the restaurant would open at 14, yet it was already open at 13.30. The Young waitresses were quite shy and had very...little English. We had a native Thai with us and she queried whether this restaurant was the one from Rick Stein's program. The waitress didn't know.... Anyway we ordered a number of courses included the green curry soup. I think this soup really lived up to expectations with complex flavors. All the courses we had ordered tasted quite good and considering the food price and the genuine environment I think this restaurant deserves 4 dots.More

I blame Rick Stein! Was featured on one of his programs and looked good - food certainly. Food "fit for a King" he said. Well didn't even get that far. Took the trouble to walk up for Lunch when I was at flower market. I...walked in and stood about but was ignored. Really didn't think it was worth persevering - so left. Ironically the sign on the door says please come again. Perhaps I caught them on a bad day. Suggest you go and make up your own mind if curious.More

I came here because the place is recomended in some guidebooks but I have to say that I was disapointed. The food was just average, omelete very dry and bland and mediocre curry

I got the feeling we were sitting in someone's living room (yes the TV was on). The staff were a bit shy but very nice and the food was very good. We tried the green curry and the spicy pork with vegetables and both were...very good with the deep and complex flavours you only get with a multitude of ingredients - no cheating here!More

I highly recommend ordering the green curry. The service was great, the old Thai waitress was very welcoming and the place is very homey.

We popped here on the basis of the lonely planet. Unfortunately it took a huge amount of time to get a table, in that time we watched various tables ignored when they were trying to pay and order - which meant we were waiting for...a very long time for a table to be turned over. Once we were sat the service was extremely slow, they ran out of beer and we were continually ignored. The food was OK, it was majority chilli and didn't have that depth of spice flavour that great Thai usually has. All in all this was a big let down.More

We loved everything about this place. It looks as local and authentic as it can, the food is yummy (go for the soup!) and the value or money is just outstanding. The staff was friendly and very accommodating, especially to our 3 year old. We...have truly enjoyed our dinner at poj sapa kar and we couldn't get enough of food. Although a bit tricky to find, this restaurant is highly recommended!More

First of all, we arrived when they were about to close. But the staff was very nice anyway, and they served us quite quickly. We read that it is the oldest thai restaurant in Bangkok. The inside has not been rebuilt, it looks really 'authentic'....Food was very good, we tried a recommendation we read in our guide: the lemon omelette, and also we tried the green curry. Both were very tasty! It was cheap and a perfect stop before we continued our trip.More

I wonder if this place would've been half as popular had Rick Stein not have highlighted it on his Far Eastern Odyssey? We tried to find this place on a previous visit during the evening which was not good as they don’t open for dinner,...so we never got there. However on this occasion we found it during the day and had lunch. On the show Rick recommend the royal green curry, which my boyf had and I had tom kha. Both when they eventually arrived, served up by a very officious lady, were reasonable, but for the reputation and publicity this place has had, I was expecting to be blown away. P Kitchen in Sukhumvit was far superior in our humble opinion. There is no atmosphere here at all, it's all a bit waiting room like, no buzz or nice vibe. Service was dreadful and to be honest the lady taking orders was bit rude. My boyf speaks Thai, so realised she was being snotty. There were only western diners when we visited, so maybe the lady is a bit fed up with the tourists. Still you can’t have it both ways, free publicity = diners. I wouldn’t rush back.More

my first food in thailand and the best food in thai i had all over my stay in thailand the place itself looks like a typical small family run thai bistro, nothing special and also very hard to find, we found it thanks to a...photo of the entrance on the internet the food is absolutely delicious and I was amazed - better than I expected of thai food - it was spicy, fresh, balanced, delicious it is not cheap (for thailand; singha for 96bt) but absolutely ok for a normal european on a vacation (dinner for two with 2 beers, 2 tom yam kungs, curry and shrims was 700bt with tip) staff is nice and they had absolutely no problem with us staying even after they closed and have some family meeting in there.. also they very were helpful to us when teaching us a few thai words.. go there.. enjoy it :)More

I first heard about this restaurant on a Rick Stein television show and he said the food was superb so I was really looking forward to this. It didn't disappoint, this place is the epitome of the idiom "don't judge a book by its cover"...because the restaurant is nondescript and needs decorating but don't be put of because the food is excellent. The Thai green curry was probably the best I have ever tasted and the sea bass was divine. The menu is simple and succinct and the dishes are very reasonably priced. I will be going back there every time I go to Bangkok, I look forward to the next time so I can try out some more of the menu.More

It was our first restaurant in Bangkok, on our first day. We were completely alone in the restaurant, so the ambiance was a bit creepy. Right after the waitress took our order, we saw our first giant bug on the restaurant floor and another small...one on our table. The food was good though we felt a bit homesick...More

The lemon grass omelet was fantastic! This place is a little hard to find because the facade is very simple, but ask a local and he/she can point it to you. At night, the adjacent street is lined with street food vendors selling sweet thai...pancakes and milk teas.More

After seeing the restaurant on Rick Stein's Far Eastern Odyssey we decided to track this restaurant down and try it out. We are very glad we did the food was very good, service good and atmosphere just what you expect from a local eatery. We...had the fried green chicken curry and red beef curry and enjoyed both. The restaurant was not that easy to find but was worth the effort to track it down. We will be returning when next in Bangkok.More
