The only reason why this place has a fair business is due to its location. Overtly situated smack in the middle of Siam Square, Ban Khun Mae Restaurant offers standard and generic thai cuisine for the masses. But there's nothing neither unique nor interesting offered on the menu other than standard Thai dishes which is ok accept the taste in... More

I just had dinner with my colleagus tonight at the restaurant. We were asking for seperate bills since the moment we ordered food. When we were asking for the bills, the waitress gave us one bill. When I asked him for seperate bills, he was acting rude and even kind of throwing the revised bills. That's ashamed. This was my... More

Used to visit this restaurant in the past for it's good food, service and ambience. However this visit is a great disappointment. The food is bland and the service bad and even without a smile.

They serve very delicious Thai food here. Even though they are located in Siam Square and cater to tourists, the taste of the food is still very authentic. We ordered tomyum soup, pandanus chicken, green curry, paenang pork curry and grilled pork neck. They were all yummy. The food was also very well presented.

The restaurant serves authentic Thai cuisine and favorite among local and tourists. The food is nice if you like Thai cuisine, but not the best in my humble opinion. I was there Saturday around dinner time, the place was packed, gotta take number and waited for a while, best to reserve table before going.

It greatly saddens me to give this restaurant a bad review. I have eaten here many times and the food and service have been excellent but this was my first time for a few years and much has changed. When we arrived, we asked for a table and were directed upstairs where there was a buzz and music playing, Beware,... More

I'm sucker for Thai food, I love to eat street foods and really love the authentic taste. This one, is a surprise! From pandan chicken, to lemon grass drink, to pineapple fried rice and prawn cake! The bomb! One of the hidden gem in Bangkok! And now Im back in Singapore, I am craving for it. Service is fast, just... More
