Klang Soi Restaurant has long been famous for its authentic and delicate Thai food at reasonable price. The menu comprises of wide range of Thai dishes. The thing I like about this place is the family kind of place feeling. Things are kept simple, no tedious routine. Of course, noises of joy are all around. As said, this is a really good place for family meal or quick meal. Forget those fancy romantic meal or private business talk here. It is well-known and yes it is common to see this place gets crowded during weekend lunch time. Make sure you arrive early to avoid queue, else make reservation.

To come here is a bit of confusion if you are not familiar with Soi Sukhumvit 49. If you are coming from Sukhumvit 49, then turn into Sukhumvit 49/9 and just drive to the end of alley and Klang Soi Restaurant is right there. On the other hand, if you are coming from Soi Sukhumvit 39, you will have to turn into Soi Phrom Si 1 (Soi Sukhumvit 49/11) and get through Racquet Club to reach the restaurant.

At the time of visit, it was towards the end of April which is summer in Thailand. During summer, it is common to find Khao Chae in many Thai restaurants in Bangkok. At Klang Soi Restaurant, khao chae is served between March and May only.

Khao Chae - ข้าวแช่ (7/10) at Klang Soi Restaurant seems to be kept like minimalism but packed with quality. What you would see on your plate would be Prik Yuak Yud Sai (stuffed sweet pepper), Kapi Thod (fried shrimp paste ball), Nuea / Moo Foi (shredded sweetened beef / pork), Chai Pow (stir-fried Chinese sweet pickled turnip with egg), and of course fresh vegetable and fruits. All of which were well prepared and came in balance flavour. Chai Pow was mild whilst Nuea Foi was sweet with crisp texture. Kapi Thod, which is my favourite condiment, was delicious. Flavourful but not strong on the palate. One of the most difficult thing about khao chae is perhaps prik yuak yud sai, which has to be properly wrapped with fried egg, was nicely done here. Jasmine scented water was aromatic. It would be a perfect menu if rice in jasmine scented water did not come with ice cubes and more variety of condiments is presented.

Whilst I had my khao chae, Kanom Cheen Nam Prik - ขนมจีนน้ำพริก (7/10), which was the quick menu of the day, was also tasted. I think they made it considerably delicious. The combination of sweetness, hot, sour, and saltiness is well balance. It was packed with flavour and spices. At the price of THB80 per set, why wait. Just bring me two.

Well well well!!!!!! Honestly, if you have never been to Klang Soi Restaurant in Soi Sukhumvit 49, I urge you to check this out. Additionally, if you are soon to be a traveller in Bangkok, here is one place for you to get the real nice Thai food.
