The fruit shakes in this place. Would recommend mango and watermelon shakes are beautiful. Nice interior with items from the past.

We had a good lunch at this restaurant. My wife took the green curry and myself some chicken with noodles. It is a good value for money. Will recommand for a simple lunch. The service is good.

Great little place opposite Wat Po for a beer, light lunch or snack. Clean with friendly staff and a good atmosphere. Perfect when the heat gets to you and you need a break.

The food is very good and the atmosphere is friendly and casual. Just opposite the Wat Pho, the location offers an excellent break when visiting the temples. The only downside might be that it is a cash-only restaurant.

Started pouring rain so we slipped into this little cafe and it did not disappoint! Fried spring rolls were very very good, sparkling water was outstanding and they have free internet, perfect!

We visited the Rub Aroon today for lunch. It was a random visit as the heavens were about to open so we ducked inside.. The decor was nice, very Western and the place was full of Westerners, not really surprising as it's right next to...More

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
