      Oh man, sorry to hear that, I think it’s just that day, something these restaurants are hard to predict. Sorry about that.

        Apology accepted ;), but it was my own fault I know I should have called ahead. At least I got to see parts of Bangkok I’ve not seen before + the driver knew of another Isaan restaurant. So iIt’s all good. Keep up the good work man.
