This restaurant just looks nice but the food was horrible and overpriced compared to the tastier and much cheaper food we ate in many other places around Bangkok. We had some of the typical Thai foods like pad Thai and green curry and these were...just not tasty and lacked flavour. Service was poor too and we seemed to wait about for a very long time to get the bill. Then when it did come the waiter disappeared with my credit card for a while, which just delayed us further. The particular table we sat at was wobbly too. To every time someone on one end leaned on it, the other side would raise. Not worth the money or time.More

Just behind Siam Square One - very convenient. Live music on level 1 by a performer donned in traditional costume. Request for level 2 for a more personal space. The food is a little pricey, yes, but it had consistent quality every time I was...there. For example, the Steamed Seabass was fresh (almost every table had one). My favourite dishes are simple: Pandan Chicken, Thai Fish Cakes, Green Curry Chicken, Thai Basil Chicken, Pineapple Fried Rice and Mango Sticky Rice (Classic Max!). If you are dining at one of the smaller tables away from the main dining area, look below the table. I once had dinner on a table improvised from an old sewing machine! It is ALWAYS crowded at dinner time. I always arrive early (between 5.30pm to 6pm) to make sure I get a seat.More

Food is nice but Have had better.. You could get cheaper and much yummier food in Chinatown. I felt that it was pricey yet service was not there. There was an interesting seafood curry dish served in a whole coconut. If you have kids and...want to eat Thai food, its a good place to come!More

Right in the centre of Bangkok I was taken to this great restaurant. Lovely authentic Thai with friendly staff, lively atmosphere and great tasting food. Very busy with lots of locals on a Saturday lunchtime.

We stopped with friends for dinner. The restaurant is located in a very busy shopping area, and the restaurant itself gets a bit hectic as it seems to be very popular and busy. Nonetheless the noise level was not too bad. The Thai menu is...extensive! We sat on the 2nd floor and had fast, friendly service. Among us we had a wide selection of meat, seafood and vegetarian dishes, and each of us was pleased with our selections. We did not feel rushed at all and took our time over dinner. This isn’t an elegant place - you go here for a good dinner, preferably with friends. We enjoyed ourselves and the food!More

Delightful and delectable tasty Thai! One of the few restaurants that we found on Tripadvisor (during a 3 week SE Asia trip) that wasn't full of Western people when we arrived.. So, had that true "local" feeling and flavor! Best pad thai (of the three...I had) on the trip! Satisfying portion size, too. Superb service. Awesome value!More

Went in for lunch and had tasty chicken satay sticks before a Pad Thai main which had beautiful flavour. Service was excellent. Great Thai food place in the Siam district.

We walked by and decided to go in. It was about 3pm and the place was packed. instead of turning us away, the staff just asked us to wait. The place looked nice and we noticed all the awards so we decided to wait for...a table. i think we waited about 10minutes max. Cannot speak highly enough of the food. We tried all the key thai dishes and it was the best meal we had on our trip to thailand. An absolute must. Would go back to bangkok just for this restaurant.More
