‘Ban-moh’ Restaurant Review

Sometimes you don’t have to go very far to get what you want. Tried this gem of a restaurant which opened a few weeks ago near home.

So I’m heading back home after work and I notice there is a new local Thai restaurant that’s just set up shop near home. I’ve been meaning to go check it out for a couple of weeks now and today is that day.

The menu cover. It does home delivery too. Groovy for me.

So first impressions. The restaurant comprises of two adjoining shop lots at the ground floor level. One bit is air-conditioned, and the other is open space. The weather has been getting super hot over the past few days so we opted for the air-conditioned space.

Decor was simple, but the lack of furnishings in the space made the room extremely prone to sound echo. Hello…ello …llo (insert echo sound effects here). Now that may not sound so bad but now imagine you were coughing, chewing loudly or burping. Oh man, the sound echo that would follow…..lol.

Bring on the food.

Pad Kapow, hands down my favourite Thai dish of all time. This fine specimen from Ban-moh was a worthy opponent, though not quite the best I’ve had the pleasure of devouring. This dish here will set you back THB 50.
Seafood keng som. A spicy, sour and tantalising Thai soup dish. This variation at the restaurant comprised of garden vegetables (which I haven’t really had before) and shrimp. Price for a big bowl was THB 80.

Food was good. Portion sizes were spot on and tasty. Prices were great too. But the ‘dining in’ experience was a bit disappointing. Though, if you only care about the food or get a takeaway / delivery, you won’t be disappointed.

My ratings are: Food 7.5/10, Price 9/10, Dining in experience 3/10. Overall score if you get a takeaway / delivery 8/10.

With reasonably cheap prices, good taste and so near to home, I can safely say I will be a regular visitor. 

‘Ban-moh’ is located on Srinakarin Road.
