    This restaurant is a must especially if you have never visited the place before. The thai foods are delicious and reasonably priced. Restaurant is decorated with colourful condoms (which is quite obvious considering the name).

    Favorite Dish: Uniquely decorated
    Condoms shop on the entrance of the restaurant with wide variety of selections from colours to shapes :D

    Cabbages and Condoms: Eat for a good cause

    Liang at C&C restaurant. Look at the condom decor.

    The restaurant decor is very interesting, with different country condoms hanging around. Expect to spend around 600baht for 2 people here excluding wine. Outside the restaurant there is a garden and also a shop for you to buy gifts. I bought interesting condom keychain for 30baht each. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and it is not featured in the Cabbages and Condom site thus do not be tricked by the taxi driver in thinking it is closed(1 tried to trick me).

    What doggy condoms restaurant?

    But..wow, thats my first impresion entering Cabbages and Condoms. Cool and cosy ambience.
    You can dine al fresco or air- con if you need to.

    I chose al fresco - with lots of hanging light hanging, under banyan tree, fan water cooler breeze.

    Well. Its all about creating safe sex awareness. Its pretty good idea, its started since back those days, Bangkok well known for sex trade, and the message is to get to local and 'farang' while enjoying authentic thai food.

    Favorite Dish: talking about the restaurant dishes...Absoulutely Fabolicious!!!!

    what to order?

    1st. Pork and Crab small cone
    - is like dim sum, mini cone, filled with mince pork and crab with fish sauce, top with sweetcorn.
    COST : 120 BAHT

    2nd. Pork Thai Satay
    - Succulent Pork satay, lemon grass and kafir lime leave goes up to your nose...delicious. served with thai green curry paste.
    COST : 120 BAHT

    3rd. Thai Fish Cake
    - Huge portion of fish cake 'hamburger size', eaten with special thai sauce.
    COST : 180 BAHT

    4th. Famous 'Larp Moo'
    - Pork salad, lots of coriander, garlic, onions, ginger ,rocket salad, roasted rice, fish sauce and bird eyes chillies. WOW...
    COST : 130 BAHT

    5th. Tom Yam Seafood (Big Bowl of Soup served 3)
    -Generous portion of prawns, cod fish, squid in tom yam soup. 'recommended for seafood lovers'
    COST : 220 BAHT

    JUST REMEMBER ONE THING: THAI FOOD USED LOTS OF CHILLIES 'BIRD EYES CHILLIES' VERY HOT ONE. EVEN MYSELF CANT TAKE IT.

    Cabbages and Condoms: Eat and save the Planet

    Cabbages and Condoms, Bangkok - a great resturants geared toward the tourists. Good food, pretty atmosphere, great outside seating, under twinkle lights in the trees and next to a beautiful Wall O' Fountain. The theme behind this resturant is all the proceeds go toward AIDS education/prevention/treatment in this city so dependent on the sex trade. FYI, prostitution is prevelant in Thaland and an honest days labor. Which, for me was a little hard to take, not because of the women but the western men there to partake. However with the lack of opportunity, especially for women, in Thailand its a good living.

    Favorite Dish: Pad Thai (I know not very daring, but excellent!)

    We visited this restaurant in the evening and were pleasantly surprised to find it a high class restaurant set in gardens with alfresco seating and an upstairs inside eating verandah area which overlooked the garden. We were lucky we reserved the upstairs undercover area for our group of 18 as there was a 10 minute rain shower.
    The restaurant offered a wide selection of local and international meals,everyone enjoyed their meal and prices were reasonable. They also had 2 wines on special, both were good Australian wines at very reasonable prices, approx AU$5 per large glass.
    The restaurant is famous for its condom theme, which is displayed at the restaurant entrance, there are many quaint displays incorporating condoms as the main theme. The restaurant profits go to improving the health of the underprivledged and this has existed for the last 20 years. There is a shop on site where you can make purchases.
    This restaurant is well worth a visit and there is nothing vulgar on display.

    Cabbages and Condoms: Hot and Spicy

    The garden setting makes it very cosy. You get amused to all the condoms in the place and would want to read some of the framed documents on the wall.

    Favorite Dish: Order the Pad Thai and Chicken wrapped in pandan leaves. They aren't spicy and they taste great. Tom Yum soup is a must too. It was way too hot for me but I still recommend it.

    Cabbages and Condoms: New Zealand Lamb in a Sweet Curry Sauce, potato

    by maclean Updated Oct 20, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Brilliant - But then again I am Scottish

    The Cabbages and Codomns Restaurant is a large complex based on two floors including outdoor sitting on the ground floor. The theme for the Restaurant is food and condoms you will see quite a few 'tartan' looking 'mock' condoms dotted around the restaurant - very tastefully decorated. The restaurant has a lot of fans around and some of them including a misting function to keep the temperature cooler and a little more moist.
    The food was of an excellent standard both the Thai and the Non Thai - We took along a Thai friend, who later boasted about the restaurant all the time (although on this visit I had non Thai)
    The place is very clean, the staff are very helpfull and the food is really good.

    On one of the evenings that I was there - there was a lovely Music and Arts student playing traditional Thai music - a GREEEEEEEAT touch - she was very good

    Throw some of your change into one of the many wishing wells and make a wish - if that doesn't come true, at least you would have helped out on of the local charities supported by the restaurant.

    (The restaurant was originally founded by the Minister of Family Planning / Health - in order to promote safe sex - Hence Cabbages & Condoms)

    Favorite Dish: I must confess - I was there and for all my good intentions of eating Thai - I read New Zealand Lamb in a Sweet Curry with potato and I am so glad that I did, it was great. The meat fell apart and it was just perfect - have to go back and try the Thai food :(

    Cabbages and Condoms: Free Condoms after dinner

    by vigi Written Aug 28, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A unique condom-theme restaurnat in an open-air garden setting. Condoms from all over the world are displayed on the walls, like a mesuem. Normally, restaurants will give free gum or menthol after dinner, here, they give free condoms!

    Well, the food was not specially good here. We ordered 3 dishes, one asparagus, one fried beef with basil leaves, and one fried fish, only the plain asparagus was good. The fis was too salty and dried. The beef was so-so. I like the environment more than the food here.

    Cabbages and Condoms: Great ambience & service

    by idy Written Jun 27, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dining area on the ground floor

    The 2-level restaurant offers a pretty extensive menu of local dishes, from fish and curry to soups and stir fry vegetables. Some of the dishes tasted more like Chinese food than Thai food, and none of the dishes we ordered really stood out.

    The service is good, although it may be a little hard to get the attention of the waiter/waitress during the peak dining periods.

    Overall ambience is warm and cozy, and that makes for a nice dining experience. Diners can choose to dine indoors on the upper level, or in a more alfresco-like area on the ground floor, where there is a wishing well and pretty landscaping and lighting.

    Although the restaurant is so-named for contraceptives that adorn its walls, the condoms didn't appear to be a really prominant feature. The decor is classy, not campy, so you might want to dress up a little.

    Favorite Dish: I would suggest ordering some unusual local dishes as opposed to general dishes like steamed fish or stir-fried vegetables, for that unique culinary experience.

    Cabbages and Condoms: Mix Condoms and Food- What do you get?

    by iris_e Written Jun 10, 2005
    with a friend at Cabbages & Condoms

    The restaurant's theme is quite unique. Food is great and price is reasonable.

    Note that all proceeds from the restaurant will be used to fund development and social welfare activities of PDA.

    Favorite Dish: I don't know the names of each Thai dish that was served to us. There were about six different dishes (or more) and I tried all of them!

    Cabbages & Condoms

    They have recently remodeled the main eating area to accommodate more people on two floors and the open air "garden" eating area has been cleaned up. I prefer the air conditioned comfort inside.

    The restaurant is decorated with various posters about condoms around the world and there is a gift shop where you can buy condoms and condom based novelties. Please note there is nothing seedy about the place, but if you want to avoid any awkward questions from children maybe you should avoid eating here.

    Favorite Dish: They usually serve red rice which is much tastier than the usual white variety (available on request). The Thai beef salad (Yam Nua) is one of my favourites. Remember Thai salads are spicy and this is no exception!

    Cabbages and Condoms: You get condoms with the bill

    condoms given out with the bill

    This should be a stop on all visitors to Bangkok. This restaurant was set up by a revolutionary Thai person. He decided to give out condoms to anyone to help cut down the spread of the AIDS virus. He will hang out on Bangkok's busiest roads and hand out condoms to passersby. Proceeds from the restaurant and hotel (pattaya) go to environment, education and aids charities.

    Cabbages & Condoms: Good Food with a Cause

    by mnhaus Written Mar 27, 2005

    This is a neat place to come for some very good traditional Thai dishes. The restaurant is run by the Thai Population & Community Development Association, so it serves as an ingenious educational/fundraising tool for birth control & AIDS awareness.

    Favorite Dish: Everything we had was great. The fish with chili sauce was spectacular....their version of laab gai was good too.
