Went to the restaurant as a group where we had the buffet. Small selection of food, nothing really special. As with buffets, most of the dishes were not really hot. Location is ok, view on the river.

Well located next to the river, adjacent to where the river launches arrive to take you on a river cruise. Neat little restaurant, capable of hosting tour groups or individual diners. Comprehensive Thai-style buffet served - and very tasty it was too. Plenty of staff on hand to take your drinks order and clear away plates, etc. Two toilets at... More

Sat down in this restaurant to escape a heavy rain shower. Ordered shrimp cakes and green curry chicken along with a couple of beer. The shrimp cakes were very good, not greasy or full of filler. Firm with nice sized shrimp pieces. The green curry was a little thin but full of flavour. Prompt, friendly service with tourist prices, I'd... More

After visiting the Grand Palace, our guide took us to this lovely little Restaurant on the River. We had a table looking out over the river and found the service very good and the buffet selection was suffice for lunch. You may say that this is basic restaurant. It was clean, the staff were friendly and the food was good... More

Stopped here for lunch after having got off the river taxi. The restaurant has a river view, and a few of the tables have a light and airy aspect, but still covered by the main roof. The tables further back are quite dark. As it wasn't too busy we had a river view table. The food was Thai with other... More

Seems this place largely survives on captive tourist groups that are brought here for lunch. Other than that, it's usually nearly empty. Why? Largely mediocre food; prices on the highish side; unenthusiastic and inattentive staff, not particularly friendly. Nice location, but there are many better places to eat along this street and along the river. Be careful as well with... More

While staying in the 'Riva Surya' hotel we wandered out of the restaurant looking for a table and found ourselves in this restaurant next door. With no pre conceived ideas on what to expect, we decided to eat here. It was latish (8pm) and we sat at a table overlooking the river. The service was good and the food was... More

8 of us were there, nice clean place on the bank of Chao Phraya River, therefore the price should be higher than street vendor. Beautiful view. Foods were average to good, curry, pad Thai, stir fried soy noodle were good. Friendly staffs and fast service. This restaurant is walking distance from the Emerald Temple if U do not want street...

We were forced to eat here by our guide because we needed to ride the boat to the canals right after lunch. So we really didn't have any choice. When we got there, hoards of package tourists were eating and we were not allowed to sit by the window/river because they were reserved for people in these package tours so... More

I’m not into writing many reviews however I’ve gone out of my way to warn you about this place simply because of our recent experience here.

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.
