The restaurant is situated in what looks a little likes a large old wooden warehouse. This is a very simple establishment with, as others have commented, very quirky decor, but this only adds to the atmosphere. We had lunch here on a Saturday when it was quite busy, mostly with locals, but the service was fine. We thought the food... More

Lovely cheap food, very good service, quick & friendly. decent menu selection but very little English spoken, we had the... More

Delicious Vietnamese and Northern Thai food. Try the "Nam Ngiew". It'd a special rice noodles done Northern-style in jot and spicy soup with minced pork, vegetables and blood jelly. Does not sound too enticing but it is really tasty. You can ask opt for a non-spicy option as well.

It had excellent Vietnamese cuisine and I would go there again. The atmosphere was also great, somewhat different from other Thai restaurants with high ceilings and lots of stuff gathered around the place.

Good Vietnamese and Thai food. We tried the famous northern Thai soup with cubes of coagulated blood, Vietnamese sausage rolled with vegetables into spring rolls and a kind of satay wrapped in vine leaves. Everything was tasty and the servings were generous. Nothing mind-blowing but definitely recommended.

Not easy to see from the main street (phahonyotin), this black barn has really tasty vietnamese food. Also, the thai nam ngiao is delicious. The building does not really close, so is no aircon, but due to the high ceiling, even in the hottest days, the fans handle the remaining heat without problems. So for some really inexpensive authentic non-spicy... More
