The restaurant features a stunning location, situated in a Thai teakwood house on the banks of the Chao Phraya River. The terrace overlooking the river is a particularly romantic spot in which to enjoy authentic Thai flavours.

Begin with yum takrai pla kraphong thord, a refreshing deep-fried sea bass and lemongrass salad balanced with chilli spice. Follow this with the authentic gai yang, tender char-grilled chicken with herbs and spices in a light sweet and sour tamarind sauce. Traditional pad thai goong, wok-fried rice noodles with prawns and bean sprouts, is highly recommended. There is also a range of piquant curry options. The signature dish of gaeng chaploo poo delivers a creamy, spicy yellow curry with chunks of fresh blue swimmer crab. End with a local specialty dessert such as i-tim ma praow ruam mit, a refreshing coconut ice cream comprising jelly and coconut flesh, or the deliciously smooth Thai tea and jasmine rice. Also excellent is khao niew mamuoang, a simple but elegant serving of fresh sweet mango and sticky rice. It will not disappoint.

The wine list is a pleasure to read with extensive tasting notes. It includes a wonderful, if slightly pricy, selection by the glass.
