    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The atmosphere of KrungThep is enough to take anyone there. It is a really cool place, the food is fantastic and the price is great. It is locate near the Seagaia resort, so the only downside is that it is a little far. But, not too far!!

    Favorite Dish: Tom Yum Soup
