Located just behind Rajadamnern Stadium (avoid the grotty branch directly adjacent to the stadium), this decades-old restaurant is where locals come for a northeastern-Thai-style meal before a Thai boxing match. The friendly English-speaking owner will steer you through the ordering process, but don’t miss the deliciously herbal, eponymous 'charcoal roasted chicken'. There's no English-language sign; look for the huge yellow banner.
