Incredible choice of drinks and very good service. The band was great and made us stay out late! Such a perfect, comfortable venue.

Had a great night in Happy Snapper. It was relaxed and friendly. The music was fabulous and they even let me sing with them. Our daughter loved the fish and one drink turned into an evening. Would advise families to give it a try.

Came in for a drink and music. Beer is double the price in most restaurants (100 Bhat for 330ml) but the music and atmosphere are worth it. Cocktails are same price as most restaurants. Nice to have live music.

I wouldn't want to see this place by daylight. It wasn't clean, the food was Ordinary, the drinks relatively expensive, the AC not working so it was unpleasantly hot. It was better outside, but as it had just rained, the seats were wet. A live...More
