The fruit shakes in this place. Would recommend mango and watermelon shakes are beautiful. Nice interior with items from the past.

We had a good lunch at this restaurant. My wife took the green curry and myself some chicken with noodles. It is a good value for money.

Will recommand for a simple lunch.

The service is good.

Great little place opposite Wat Po for a beer, light lunch or snack. Clean with friendly staff and a good atmosphere. Perfect when the heat gets to you and you need a break.

The food is very good and the atmosphere is friendly and casual. Just opposite the Wat Pho, the location offers an excellent break when visiting the temples. The only downside might be that it is a cash-only restaurant.

Stumbled into this inviting-looking little place after a few hours at Wat Pho. It's conveniently located between Wat Pho and Tha Tien pier, and clearly relies on tired and hungry tourists seeking a place to relax and refuel. It gets busy, has a high turnover, and while staff are not pushy this is not the place for endless lingering. Service is efficient but not overly warm.
The interior is a comfortable mix of recycled and second-hand furniture, silk cushions and modern art. Large open windows contribute to an open feeling, and there's pavement seating that offers a glimpse of the wat.
The menu features both western and standard Thai dishes (green curry, pad thai etc), so would probably suit those with finicky kids - and the less experimental.
The pad thai was on the bland side, nothing to write home about, but quick and reasonably priced.
