Tips for you
Located a stone throw away from Sala Daeng station, this place serves some pretty exciting food. At reasonable prices too! We ordered their speciality salad. A very big metal tray is served with payaya salad accompanied by sides like prawn fritters, fried anchovies, sprigs of herbs, boiled egg, noodles and vermicilli. As we were eating al fresco, this spectacular platter did attract the gaze of many passer-by. Tried the Rosalle martini too. At around 130 baht, this price is a steal compared to prices in Singapore. Nice ambience, you can choose to sit indoor where there is air con or al fresco. A good place to people watch. Good food, good ambience, good price. Perfect formula!
I went here with high expectations and they were certainly met. This is seriously authentic and spicy food that I absolutely loved. A great range of Som tam on the menu, perfect sticky rice and a great selection of grilled meats. I suppose you need to be a fan of this food to enjoy the place - it was too spicy for two of my friends who were visiting me for a few days from the UK. Highly recommended and I'll definitely be returning
I've just returned to my hotel from a dinner with my girlfriend at Somtum Der, and we are both extremely satisfied with what we have eaten. Food was delivered as spicy as requested, staff were nice and helpful and service was very quick. Prices were also extremely fair; incomparable to street food stall, but still very cheap for foreigners given the quality of food. I will definitely come back soon
One of the best places for Isaan Thai food. Flavourful and authentic. Can't go wrong with anything here! Double thumbs up.
