We came to try Tonsai because of all the good reviews and it did not disappoint! We had the betel leave wraps and the pandanut leave wrapped chicken for starters- both absolutely delicious! I've never tried the betel leave wraps and it was so good! The flavour was amazing. The restaurant is situated by the roadside, you can't miss the... More

Pleasant staff, a varied menu with food prepared in kitchen open to view. The food was served in a timely manner and one did not feel rushed

We ate in Tonsai due to the great Trip Advisor reports the restaurant gets and we weren't disappointed - the food was tasty and all served by friendly staff. It doesn't look much from the outside but don't let this put you off. We had spring rolls to start with which were quite possibly the tastiest I've ever had, this... More

We drove from where we stay to Tonsai for dinner after looking for few places. We decided to go with this one. At first we were not sure with this after we had a first dish we would say WoW. The restaurant is located on road side , the atmosphere is just typical restaurant in the country with open kitchen.... More

My wife and I ate dinner here on 2 occasions in early February. The place was always busy so the service was a little slow but very friendly. The food was great. The food tasted very fresh and you could constantly hear the chopping and pounding of ingredients in the back. Wish I could eat there tonight.

I had to wait 15 mins for a table as tonsai has become a favorite in Klong Prao. It's on the main road opposite another popular address, Kati . It was worth the wait ! Lovely food, charming staff, good prices, and a wonderful dessert of banana cooked in coconut milk !

Lovely food and great service. A beautiful spacious restaurant with room for children to play. Traffic is rather loud but to be expected on main road.

We stayed at the Island for a 9 days and had dinner at this place twice. The food was great, prices very competitive and easy to access. Strongly recommend their curries and non alcoholic smoothies/milkshakes

Tonsai Restaurant is not on the beach – it is facing the busy street, not very inspiring … but we happened to eat there 3 times!!! That is because the food there is excellent. We visited several restaurants on the beach, extraordinary view, feet in the sand, sound of the sea, fresh fish and seafood – but nothing special compared... More
