Located a few metre away from Democracy monument, Krua Apsorn is mostly frequently by locals for lunch time, which is a good sign for original thai food and not food for tourists. The menu is also available in English and there are pictures of the...More

The salad and padthai is good. Other dishes are just average. It is not hard to get a table for 9 people. I would eat here again only of i am in the area

We were very excited to try this place, having read that it's locally famous and even favored by Thai royalty! Our food was good, but not amazing. Crab curry was absolutely not worth the equivalent of $15 USD. That's very expensive compared to the rest...More

You always see a long line outside. The egg crab cake was too salty and couldn't taste much crab. Tum Yum soup was not as impressive as some of the other places. Overall, nothing extraordinary.

Treat yourself to an absolutely delicious lunch at Krua Apsorn. Three of us polished off two orders of crab with yellow curry, the crab omelet, chicken wings and coconut sorbet. Yum. Note this restaurant has 2 locations, we ate at Dinso Road.

When wandering around the Dusit Palace grounds, you'd
almost forget you're still in a Southeast-Asian city.
The Renaissance-style buildings and leafy gardens
wouldn't be out of place in an European capital, and
the serenity here is in stark contrast with the
chaotic city life outside of its complex walls. Dusit
is one of Bangkok's oldest districts, and while the
rest of Bangkok is modernising at a rapid pace, Dusit
