    Best place to have fried chicken wing, pork shoulder and somtam! Pair it with sticky rice for extra flavour.

    Pork neck is so so. I don't really like because a bit dry.

    Papaya salad is nice but very small portion and spicy. Ask for less spicy if you can't take too spicy.

    Fried chicken is nice but food is not so hot. It was like pre-cooked.

    Highly recommend this place for the fried chicken & som tam (excellent). It's right next to Siam station. Service isn't great though & it's more like a canteen then a restaurant. Gd for a quick bite

    Very flavorful dishes. Recommend to order the fried chicken, pork shoulder BBQ and the tom yum pork soup. Skip the papaya salad though.

    All I ask is whether they have tom yum soup. And the waiter in all black took my menu away. After that he ignored us all the way even we are 1st in q, ready to order. I went off.

    Grab your lunch here if you're near Siam BTS. Nothing much to shout about. It's still a respectable spot for Thai food but feels more like a tourist trap.

    Come early as it tends to get crowded. If you are queuing and on the waiting list, you can have your order taken down first. Drinks order will only be taken once you have been seated.
