We had lunch here after visiting the Wat Po. It was a nice surprise, since the prices were more convenient than the ones we had at a restaurant in Khao San Road, despite of the fact that this restaurant is right across one of the...More

A great little cafe across the street from Wat Po. We went here for lunch and had the pad thai. It was absolutely delicious, and the service was excellent, despite being packed for lunchtime. Definitely recommend a visit.

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.

Ate lunch here after Wat Pho since it was close and the food was very good. We were with our tour guide so she helped us order but even if she wasn't there, I'm sure whatever we would have ordered would have been great.

The food here was great and cheap even though it's right next to a big tourist attraction. I ordered a green curry and my sister ordered fried rice with chicken. Both were great and my curry wasn't too spicy at all. The customer service there...More

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
