We found this restaurant on tripadvisor. It was a 15 minute walk from lebua hotel. It is set back from the main street at what seems like a carpark. Although this doesn't sound appealing, the restaurant looks really nice. It is like an old wooden colonial house. Both outside and inside look very nice. There is a lot of food on offer and they have Beerlao from the bottle. I thought food in terms of presentation and taste where great. we ordered some different appetizers and mains and tried a lot of different flavours. This was great. We had banana fritters as dessert, but these were not out of the ordinary.

Staff was welcoming and friendly, but difficult for them to understand english.

I have read a recommendation in a travel blog so we decided to go there during our next Bangkok visit.

The restaurant is a little bit hidden, but definitely worth the way!

For somtam (papaya salad) lovers is it a paradise - huge diversity. Yummy.
And all the rest of our food was very good.

One of the best places to have excellent Thai (mainly Issan) food in town. Try the Pla Krapong Neung Manao, it is worth the wait for them to prepare this one.

Haven't been here for several years, but had the feeling that nothing much had changed. Good service, really tasty dishes (especially the Isan sausage).
Hope to get back there soon.

This was my first time eating Thai food in Thailand, so I might be off with the scoring, but if this was in the UK, there would be queues out of the door. As it was, we were the only ones in. Why? Is there better food somewhere else? I can't really believe that there is in terms of food and decent wine all served well in a old style building. None of the dishes were eye-wateringly good, but I could happily eat there for a week. I can't comment on the value either, as somebody else ordered and paid (and I am very, very grateful).
