Lonely Planet review

This Cinderella of a former street stall has become virtually synonymous with fried chicken. Although the sôm đam (green papaya salad), sticky rice and lâhp (spicy ‘salad’ of minced meat) give the impression of a northeastern Thai-style eatery, the restaurant’s namesake deep-fried bird is more southern in origin. Regardless, smothered in a thick layer of crispy deep-fried garlic, it is none other than a truly Bangkok experience.
