Our Thai friend who lives in Bangkok took us to this restaurant. She raved about it, said it is one of her favorites. I see by other TripAdvisor reviews that she has lots of company. Unfortunately, I am not in that group. While the crab...omelet was good, our Bangkok-living Thai friend ordered green curry with fish balls. The curry came--with no fish balls. Were they trying to put one over on a local? So strange. Then the bill came. We discovered that the green curry was 500 baht-- 5 times the cost of each of the other dishes we ordered. I am very confused about these wonderful reviews, and will not be back. Perhaps your experience will be better.More

Fed up and tired waiting our turn at Jai Fai, we started walking towards krua Apsorn. It was a 15 min walk. Simple place with a pretty big sitting arrangement. We had the crab omlette and Thai stir fry fish. Both were totally on point....Very very good and oozing flavour. We were almost in two minds to repeat the crab omelette! You can give the hyped places a miss and come here for the crab omelette. You won’t regret it!!More

I understand why Michelin rewarded this restaurant wit a Bib Gourmand. This stands for a very good meal at a very reasonable price. I cannot say anything more sensible than that. It was really fantastic. No two ifs ands or buts.

Delicious curry deshelled crab (400 baht), the flower vegetable too is another must order! No frills, authentic Thai food. Higher price than normal but they are very generous with the proteins. Staffs can be friendly, most don’t speak good English. Busy restaurant, come off peak...hour to have a less noisy peaceful meal.More

One of the best tasting Thai restaurants in the land of great food. I was extremely happy with almost all the dishes especially for the prices they sold them for. My particular favorite was the crab curry. Would definitely go back here again.

Located next to the National library, from time to time, this restaurant catered for King Rama IX. It is a favorite place for civil servants and officers.

My mother and I visited Krua Apsorn for lunch after discovering the restaurant through food blogs. We'd made a reservation through our hotel since it's apparently hard to get a table just by showing up. We ordered the following four dishes: 1. Stir fry crab...with yellow pepper chili 2. Fish cakes 3. Green curry with prawns 4. Fluffy crab omelette The stir fry crab and green curry were absolutely delicious. What was lovely about the green curry is that it came with massive prawns. The fish cake was also tasty. I wish the crab omelette contained more crab that it did. The portions of the omelette with crab in it were tasty, but they were sparing. Overall, it was an excellent meal and Thai food enthusiasts can't go wrong by eating here. In case you plan to eat here, you'll be able to recognize the restaurant with its Michelin sign on the door.More
