This place is awesome!
The restaurant is very picturesque indeed. Life-sized manikins dressed in robes made out of condoms, lamps covered in condoms, articles about aids-prevention... the theme is obvious and the interior designers definitely weren't one of the old school...
You have two floors, the second being a balcony-style lounge overlooking the first floor garden. It feels like sitting open-air but in fact you're not. Just the sides are open to catch a small glimpse of the sky outside (for air-con-lovers, they also offer indoor seating). Numerous fans and plants are creating a very comfy and cosy atmosphere... perfect for a romantic dinner for two, casual gathering with friends or even business luncheon.
It's also the only restaurant I know where you are given condoms instead of mints with the bill. Their motto: "Sorry, we don't have mints. Please take a condom instead"! ;-)
The menu is rather versatile with various appetizers, soups and main dishes as well as a nice selection of yummy desserts. From Thai curry to sweet-and-sour pork, every taste is catered for...
Personally, I loved the fresh juices. During my dinner, I had two 'young coconut' juices served in the shell... so tasty.
The prices are very moderate indeed. About average for Bangkok I'd say. For three juices, one big appetizer, two main dishes and two desserts, we paid around 900 Baht including tax and service charge.
For me, Cabbages & Condoms is a must-go place for lunch or dinner or both...
The food is so so good. I had the seafood tom yam, pandan leaves chicken, spicy fish, crab meat fried rice and green curry chicken. They were all good. And Im not exaggerating. All for 1600 Baht, that's about 70 singapore dollars for 3 people, which I thought was pretty affordable. The place is really nice with a great ambience. Lights all around, waterfall. It advocates safe sex so you get picures of condoms and remidners to have safe sex everywhere. The servcie was immaculate, makes you feel really welcomed.
Favorite Dish: If you go, you must get the green curry chicken with the crab meat fried rice. The rice is aromatic and the chicken is so full of flavour. Yum.
The food was amazing. Not normally into themed restaurants, but this is different. As the name suggests this restaurant promotes safe sex. We sat in the covered terrace area. Happy buzzy atmosphere. Worth treating yourself too. After dinner mints a bit chewy (condoms).
Favorite Dish: Since I have only eaten there once hard to say. But the stir fried chicken with cashew nuts and dried chilli was yummy.
Have been here a number of times now and love this Restaurant. The name sounds a bit tacky but sitting outside in the garden with all the fairy lights and the Thai music is really nice. Have heard mixed reports about the food but I have always enjoyed it and since going there with a local who gave me to tips on what to order I enjoyed it even more. Great place for a reasonably priced romantic dinner.
Favorite Dish: There are so many great Thai dishes. There was one where we wrapped up leaves with all different types of herbs which was delicious.
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
Well i really liked this restaurant..It was well lit up..which made for a really nice atmosphere..The service was excellent the food was very good!! The idea behind the name is also very interesting..Definately worth a visit, will go back again!!
Favorite Dish: We had a really interesting appetizer..It was a Betel Leaf with Thai things on it!!
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.

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.
