We drove from where we stay to Tonsai for dinner after looking for few places. We decided to go with this one. At first we were not sure with this after we had a first dish we would say WoW. The restaurant is located on road side , the atmosphere is just typical restaurant in the country with open kitchen.... More

My wife and I ate dinner here on 2 occasions in early February. The place was always busy so the service was a little slow but very friendly. The food was great. The food tasted very fresh and you could constantly hear the chopping and pounding of ingredients in the back. Wish I could eat there tonight.

I had to wait 15 mins for a table as tonsai has become a favorite in Klong Prao. It's on the main road opposite another popular address, Kati . It was worth the wait ! Lovely food, charming staff, good prices, and a wonderful dessert of banana cooked in coconut milk !

Lovely food and great service. A beautiful spacious restaurant with room for children to play. Traffic is rather loud but to be expected on main road.

We stayed at the Island for a 9 days and had dinner at this place twice. The food was great, prices very competitive and easy to access. Strongly recommend their curries and non alcoholic smoothies/milkshakes

Tonsai Restaurant is not on the beach – it is facing the busy street, not very inspiring … but we happened to eat there 3 times!!! That is because the food there is excellent. We visited several restaurants on the beach, extraordinary view, feet in the sand, sound of the sea, fresh fish and seafood – but nothing special compared... More

Wonderful staff, great tasting Thai food, well presented. Really good overall service. The owner is a wonderful lady who makes a point of getting your order right (especially if you have particular food needs). She's wonderfully supported by her staff who cook great Kao Soi, Pad Thai, all the curry variations :))

Enjoyed our meal here that we decided to re-visit for our last evening meal in Ko Chang. We weren't disappointed. The food was very well presented, with the rice hiding under a leaf shaped as an upturned cone. The flavours were lovely and it was served by lovely friendly ladies. The kitchen is on view down a few steps from... More

A little gem on Koh Chang, the Tonsai has some items on the menu which are not on every list. Like the mieng kamm, round leaves in which you wrap a bunch of fresh ingredients like dried shrimp lemon garlic onions ginger and coconut chips plus a sticky sweet sauce made form tamarind...i love it! Gai hor bai toy, chicken... More
