A very helpful hostess helped us select an excellent balance of dishes to share and everything including drinks were reasonably priced. If you want a small... More

Having eaten here 3 years ago and enjoyed the food immensely we decided to give Hemlock another go. We weren't disappointed! The miang kham (leaves which you fill with dried shrimp, coconut, lime, peanut, garlic, chilli and sweet sauce) makes for a great starter to share with lovely fresh flavours. For main courses 4 of us had the green chicken... More

Ate here twice, I would go back for more. We went to eat early and there was no problem with service. The starter course, miang chan, consisting of leaves used to wrap various ingredients around (toasted coconut, lime, peanuts, onion, peppers) with a tamarind based sauce was fun and great tasting. Other dishes, like stir fried chicken and fried chicken... More

We never miss going there when in Bangkok - consistently great food and relaxed atmosphere - so close to Khao San but so far away.

the restaurant is very close to Khao san and to the palace. the food is good and the prices are reasonable. the ambience is good and it is not too noisy. the tables are closely placed so you have to be a bit careful when having a conversation. their chicken curry is really good

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
