Its location on the Chao Phraya River—and across from the Grand Palace—makes this restaurant worth a visit. A free ferry from Maharaj Pier shuttles diners back and forth. In the former home of Khunying Supatra, founder of the city's express boat business, the restaurant has a small museum dedicated to the art she collected. The set menus (B750–B1,200) make for easy ordering; you could also try a la carte options like the steamed sea bass in soy or spicy lemon. There
are Thai dancing shows Saturday nights at 7:30.

Grabbed their boat on the Bangkok side and came for lunch. The buffet is super cheap and plentiful. All quite tasty. The room we were in was nothing special.....there seem to be other rooms, one for performances. Planned to walk to the Royal Barge Museum from here but the heat and humidity put an end to that. If you can find which aisle of stalls to walk through, at the end of the nearby market is the river bus on the Thon Buri side.

This was so enjoyable. We were able to see the lights of the river our last night in Bangkok and enjoy arriving by boat from our hotel (The Oriental)for a very small charge; an option to watch a Thai cultural dance show (we opted not to watch); and a very enjoyable multi course meal for about $18. The food was very good and the ambiance was exceptional. Would recommend for any couple or family to enjoy.
