After touch down in Bangkok and check-in the hotel in the afternoon.. head out looking for lunch.. and we are welcomed by the good and yummy thai food to start off our Bangkok holiday. Price is a bit pricey but it is expected since we are dining in a restaurant. Fantastic service.. although i do hope they provide free flow... More

This is one of the must-visits for me whenever I'm in Bangkok. I brought my friends to this restaurant for some authentic Thai food and they had nothing but praise for every dish which arrived. The restaurant is aptly named as Ban Khun Mae literally means "my mother's kitchen". Indeed, guests can taste that each dish is made with love.... More

I stumbled on this authentic Thai restaurant as I emerged from the Siam station of the excellent BST skytrain system. It was quite full and I had to wait 10 minutes or so, on a busy Friday evening before I was guided to a decent sized table for one. The waitress, dressed in a rather tired, traditional styled dress which... More

We wanted some quality Thai food but wanted to stay in the Siam area so tried this place based on Trip advisor reviews. Food can kind of be a crapshoot in Thailand so we were pleasantly surprised! Had no reservations, a Thursday night about 730 -- had to wait about 10 minutes. Place was packed and noisy but in a... More

We went here for dinner in Feb 2017 and liked the place and the food. I guess this is a restaurant that many tourists go to in order to try authentic Thai food. We ordered the recommended dishes. Although they are tasty, the price is quite steep and I am wondering whether locals would pay the same amount of money... More

I'd been past this place a few times and it looked intriguing, but I'd never been near here at meal time until a few days ago which gave me the chance to give it a try. First impressions are good, inside the place looks somewhat like a cross between a Thai restaurant and an Old English pub, but not in... More
