  • 400b for foreigners, 30b for locals. The rip off is in no way justifiable. Tiny place, out of the way.

  • Beautiful place let down by horrible food and beverage. We had coffee at the premises. It was cheap and tasted nasty. Even worse, my boiling hot latte was poured into a thin plastic cup. Obviously, this cafe operator has not been taught that the hot coffee would melt bits of the plastic cup and patrons will be drinking something toxic. I complained about it and asked for a nornal cup. There were some cups drying on a rack by the sink but the operator refused to let me have one. I gave up, took two sips of the coffee, felt some pain on my throat immediately and junked the coffee. 40 baht thrown away for nothing. There is very poor understanding of food safety here. Eat and drink at this place at your own risk
  • Really cool place a bit far from the city center. Its a fantastic place for photography. It’s best as an add-on to the nearby Ancient Siam. I greatly appreciate the discount offering the local price to expats working in Thailand.
