This place attracts a lot of tourists, as it's been around a long time and is in a handy location near the river. The spiciness of dishes seems to be toned down a bit, and you're unlikely to tuck into anything that makes your hair stand on end or your tongue flap like a trapped eel like you might at most roadside food stalls. That said, the classic Thai cuisine is very tasty (check out the prawn red curry or steamed fish in lime), prices are very reasonable, and the odd mix of Chinese wood carvings and plastic hanging plants makes it feel like you're visiting a friend's house rather than a restaurant.
