I've been here many times and I keep coming back. It's a great place for a long relaxing lunch. And they usually have a pretty decent selection of wine. You can sit outside in or inside - either way, you are right by the river....More

Hi, we are sorry to hear you were not happy with your visit. Every menu clearly indicates that we need to charge VAT(For government) and service charge (goes to staff, no need to tip) on top of listed prices. We hope to see you again

The whole experience here for us was amazing, full front open, cool breeze looking out onto the river. We had a tapas style lunch and some delightfully welcome beers to accompany. All great and service with a smile. Top marks

A handy haunt for my family as we were staying at the Sheraton nearby. Ideally situated on the riverside this place provides a good selection of food and drink all delivered by friendly and efficient staff.

It is a great place with the river view, fantastic sorbet of Below Eleven company, good drinks and coffee. We enjoyed the AC room enormously - direct access to river tram

Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is
Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During
the day, the main street and its small alleyways are
filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and
flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and
all-day markets. The real action, however, happens
after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and
tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast

Hi, it's 1,450 THB for a bottle of Saivignon Blanc or Chardonnay. Import and excise taxes are very high in Thailand....
