A true hole-in-the-wall, this kitchen shines as one of the best places in the city for authentic local cuisine; it's where many local groups of friends go to celebrate the simple act of eating delicious food. Don't miss the tom yum goong (hot-and-sour soup with giant river prawns), which is redolent of lemongrass, Kaffir lime leaves, and galangal; the delicately crispy oyster omelet; the crispy catfish salad with green mango; or the fried whole fish in chili-and-lime sauce. Such classics simply excel here, and you owe it to yourself to try all of them before leaving Bangkok. There is also a larger air-conditioned section of the restaurant just down the street.
