Staff just watched the Tv the whole time. They were so friendly outside when they try lure you in but after that they had no customer service at all. So rude. I had to wave my arm every time I needed something. Food was okay.

Lovely little restaurant overlooking the floating market. Cheaper food compared to other restaurants along the strip. Small portions but scrummy food. Free WiFi. Had the vegetable spring rolls, sweet and sour prawns, yellow curry and boiled rice - very nice. Restaurant quiet but market is on with the cheap food sticks. Bring mosquitoe spray!!

Nice food, we enjoy a lot the time we have dinner in this place. The staff were very gentle. We had chicken noodles soup, chicken Pad Thai, Pa-ang chicken curry and stir fried chicken sweet & sour and all of them were handmade and delicious. The desserts were pancake with ice cream and fried bananas with ice cream too, the... More

During our holiday, we choose this restaurant for our lunch- we did receive a warm welcome and the food was nice but the atmosphere was a little lacking. Hence why we didn't return later during our trip.

This restaurant was opposite our hotel so we decided to try it one night and we were not disappointed - the food was plentiful and the service was very good - we enjoyed it so much we actually went back for a 2nd time. I have read some of the reviews after we had been and was quite surprised on... More

My family and I had dinner here because on the outside it looked pretty decent. Big mistake. The staff walked around with no footwear? And the service was not what we had come to find in other restaurants in Cheong Mon. A staff member stood maybe a few feet from us constantly picking his nose which was really disgusting. The...

The food is OK but but our particluiar visit (11 persons - 5 kids) was thoroughly spoiled by ants being everywhere. The staff changed the tablecloth as a result of complaint but even that didn't overcome the problem. We all got bitten and the kids wouldn't all eat their food as a result of the ants. Wouldn't consider going back... More

The worst restaurant I have ever experienced. I had great difficulty cutting my steak, even with a steak knife. The service was slow to non existent, and they often got it completely wrong. We called in one lunchtime and when we said we only wanted a salad the manager stormed off in a huff. After waiting about 10 minutes a... More
