Gone downhill from its cheap glory days. Tasteless roast pork, timid Esaan sausage, only the somtam salad lived up to its name. Far better Esaan-style food available from street stalls anywhere away from the main tourist traps, at a quarter of the price.

Ambience wise Somtam Nua is exactly the kinda laid back restaurant I love. All of the dishes we ordered were super tasty and hit the spot. The crispy chicken wings and the fried snapper were really the highlight IMO.

Mostly locals eat here, I saw some quite unusual dishes combinations not usually found. Had a papaya salad with ham and pork skin as well as fried fish. Worth a try than always having the usual dishes.

The Isaan region of Thailand (the northeastern part of the country) is the birthplace of raw papaya salad (somtum) and the amazing namtok (grilled beef or pork), always eaten with glutinous ("sticky") rice. Some kinds of somtum aren't recommended for eating by those who would...More
