WHY GO? This tastefully converted warehouse eatery is part of a trendy redevelopment in this quieter part of town. With charming riverside frontage, this restaurant serves up fresh Thai seafood in a bustling and friendly ambience by efficient staff.
WHAT TO ORDER? Begin with a slightly sour, spicy but perfectly balanced southern soup of gaeng som with young coconut shoots and tender fish. Follow this with fresh river prawns, simply grilled but truly full of flavour, the flesh moist and slightly sweet with a delicate char. Crab is another specialty; chunks of fresh meat served smothered in a creamy, yellow curry sauce with a hint of spice. Meat dishes are also available with a classic deep-fried pork belly cooked so that it has a tasty, crispy, crunchy skin. Desserts are equally tempting with a wide range of home-made ice creams in the expected varieties but also in premium local products such as durian and a sublimely refreshing coconut sorbet; both with a wonderfully smooth texture and exploding with flavour. There is also an ample choice of traditional Thai desserts to choose from.
Drinks An extensive list of refreshing herbal drinks and fruit smoothies is offered alongside an eclectic list of local craft beers and premium ciders.
