Having dinner on our last day in Bangkok, the restaurant is situated on a small soi, 10 minutes walk from our hotel. The restaurant is on the big block of land with a large car park in the front of the restaurant. Specially on many...difference of Som Tum dish (Thai Salad), Grilled chicken (Gai yang). Other available dishes are Ok, not yummy as other restaurants. Waiters and waitresses were slow in services in peak hours. Atmosphere is quite relaxing. Not too expensive, the final bill for 4 dishes plus a Chang beer is around 700 Baht. Will come back to visit on next tripMore

Authentic Thai restaurant. We visited for dinner and had beautiful food including papaya salad with prawn, stir fried noodles with pork and drinks all for under 700 baht. It is frequented by local people which is always a good sign. Nice ambiance with friendly waiting...staff. Worth finding if you are in the area.More

We were there just after the lunch hour but the place is still packed. Managed to find a table within 10 minutes. Started - Papaya salad with salted crab This signature dish is truly earned its place. The sourness n sweetness is just perfectly tuned...by the chef. Tom yam soup is a clear type which is hard to find sometime. The fresh ingredient just made the soup so tasty 😋 The spicy mince pork is the highlight for me as I can just ate the whole plate by myself...so yummy 🤤 The fish cakes is steamy hot with the sweet chilli sauce, perfect combination. Overall the plates are quite small portions, for those with a big stomach space like me might have to order few more dishes.More

This place serves up Isaan style food in a modern clean environment. Be prepared to wait to get seated, this place is very popular. We tried some of the classic Isaan dishes. The Somtum or papaya salad was only so, so, as it was a...bit too salty (or too much msg perhaps). The laarb was absolutely amazing, perhaps it was this dish that earned them the Michelin plate. The Yum Talay was good but then I have to admit I never had a bad one. Prices a bit on the higher side but yet very affordable.More

This restaurant is a northeastern food house specializing in somtum or papaya salad and other Northeastern food. Wr love its flavor for grilled chicken, somtum, tomyum, and grilled pork. It is a busy lace full with foreign tourists and price is a bit high.

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop
