Cant believe this restaurant is number #6 in Choeng Mon. It is by far the least good Thai food we have had in Thailand.

None of the dishes were made of fresh ingrediens:
Prawn cakes
Soups with vegetables
Noodle dishes

Friendly staff, But all in all a very dissapointing experience.

Dear Mathias,

I can’t believe that we are number #6 in Choengmon too, because we are not. I just checked that. Thank you anyway for your review which gives me the opportunity to inform about our food supply management. Our stock of food is being refilled on a daily base. We don't keep much of supplies in the restaurant so we can always offer fresh food. But sh.. can happen in every restaurant in the world. Please tell us if there is problem with the food while you are in the restaurant and we will try to fix it.

Regards
Christian

Have been to this restaurant at least 5 times in the last few months and they never disappoint. I have tried many of the Thai dishes on the menu and particularly found the coconut based dishes very tasty. The owner and staff are very friendly and are happy to help you decide what to order. We have tried the green curry and duck curry which are both delicious. Drinks are reasonably priced and on par with other restaurants in the Choeng Mon area.

we have been here a few times and never had a bad word to say. It caters for everybody with a wide range of food and is not expensive. The staff very friendly and helpful and they do very good selection of drinks so much so that when they didn't have my drink in stock they went down the road to get it which I thought was thoughtful. Defo worth a visit if your in the area.
