I've eaten with friends and colleagues in all these restaurants in (greater) Bangkok. I'm no food expert, but I do know what I like! Many of my older reviews were also published in Japanese on newsclip.be タイ発ニュース速報. Whether you're after Thai food, or craving a Mexican taco, Japanese buffet or fish & chips, you can find it all here.

Yam Saap @ Siam Square | ยำแซ่บ ***

rambutan salad with shrimp
Yam Saap is a good place to sample some Thai spicy salads (yams). Over the years I've visited the original branch - opened at Siam Square in 2000 - as well as some others. The around 50 branches can usually be found at shopping malls in Bangkok, with a few branches in the country side.

The restaurants are always decorated in simple, modern style, and the food is served on elegant but plastic serving plates.

As the name implies, Yam Saap is famous for its yams (spicy salads) in many varieties,
including standard yams like som tam (papaya salad) or yam ma muang (mango salad), but also more exciting versions with for example rambutan. They're spicy - as they should! There are many other good dishes on the menu, like noodles, porridge, tofu, curries and other north-eastern food, with lots of fruits, vegetables, seafood but also chicken and pork as ingredients. Main drinks are herbal drinks and smoothies.

Service is fast and friendly, prices are reasonable.
