Tips for you
Do come here early to ensure that you get a place and the desired dishes. Queue starts even before 6pm! Well that was what I observed on a Saturday evening. Since we were way behind the packing order, we went for an hour massage nearby before returning to this restaurant for dinner. Its northern Thai food was great and really really spicy! Forewarn to ask the level of spiciness of the dishes before ordering. Staff service was great and efficient, food service was pretty fast. Dining ambiance is very lively. There's outdoor setting as well. All in all, definitely a recommended restaurant to try in Nimman area. By the way, this place closes early too, by 9pm if I am not wrong. So do be here early!
LOVED this meal. Even though we waited an hour to get in, it was wellworth it. The barbecue pork rocked and we had a couple of interesting soups that were terrific. Wish we could go back for seconds!
