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 the reclining Buddha temple. I had (something similar to) a Thai green curry and my wife had a stir fried prawn dish. The food was good though not exceptional (considering Bangkok's high standard). The portions were quite small, the service fine though our waitress had a rather abrupt "You want drink?" way of speaking.. Cost wise it was middle of the road. Two mains, two bottles of water and a tapioca style dessert came to 285 Baht about $8.50 £6.00 so quite reasonable.
A great place to watch torrential rain from!

Right on the doorstep of the Tha Tien pier and near Wat Pho massage, this is a beacon of breath air after a long day doing the cultural sights around Wat Pho. Open-fronted converted shopfront with hand-made recycled palette furniture with cushions, easy Thai menu and wifi, what's not to like?

Try the fruit shakes in this nice little bar. Watermelon, mango and coconut shakes are great when you're thirsty. Well maintained interior with old cabinet and items from the past on display.

Came here as children hot and tired. A very humid day.

Unlike previous posts we found the service to be friendly and efficient with the staff smiling.

Had simple Western food with lots of soft drinks which came to a respectable bill.

Great location opposite the Grand Palace.
