During bank hours, you can easily park in the Bangkok Bank parking lot, then a 50m walk out the back gate.

Ate there for the first time today.

Food (carbonara) was excellent, but as everyone has commented, small portion.

Having been forewarned, I also ordered the salad, which I enjoyed. But I wonder if anyone else who has eaten it thought as I did, that the creamy dressing would have been better off in a small jug, rather than spread (copiously) over the top of the salad?

I thought so at first, but now I give the salad a good toss dispersing the dressing throughout. You can also ask to have your dressing on the side and not on the salad.

Thanks for that clarification papa.

Next time I will ask for the jug. :D

On another point, are there any comments on the garlic bread (it wasn't available today)?

Garlic bread is good by Thai standards, but be warned it is 'Thai' garlic bread, not real garlic bread. (e.g. garlic, butter and spices on grilled Italian bread) That being said, I order it every time we eat there.

And yes, I thought that (re: dressing) the first time also, but actually it is quite good, and if you toss the salad as Papa says, it is about the right amount for me.

Very nice food, price, service and atmosphere.

Children friendly where kids can play without disturbing too much, and most chairs and tables seem lower more like for kids or at least smaller people! At most Thai noodle or "steak" joints, forget about letting a child out of their chair, though this place almost looks like a playland.

Some of the fusion pasta dishes look and taste quite sophisticated as well. The pork or chicken steak is quite a complete plate of food given around 60 baht only, with flavor nuances closer to western than Asian influenced, eg buttery corn and veggies.

We had dinner there tonight, and just FYI, they have a few new things on the menu, and also now offer breakfast. However, there is some bad news: due to an illness in the family, they have changed their hours from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and are closed on Sunday.

They now offer bruschetta (good!) and some different pasta dishes on their lunch/dinner menu, and allow substitutions of pasta type or meat etc. They also offer two breakfast sets, with eggs (fried or omelet), ham, bacon, sausage, toast (with butter and jam) and coffee or tea for 98 baht, or the Thai hot dogs instead of sausage for 78 baht.

Heh, and their new menus are quite artsy, with pictures and clearer definitions, and with prices maintained within a couple of baht. ;) A good place to eat, but the new times are going to throw a damper on how often we can eat there.

Also, I understand there is a bit of confusion as to what I mean by not 'real' garlic bread. Maybe I have been misled, but my understanding is that garlic bread, by Italian standards, is minced garlic, butter and olive oil, with a bit of rosemary, thyme and parsley, spread on Italian bread and toasted. I was told this by the chef of a very good Italian restaurant in Atlanta. If I have been misled, then would some of our Italian blooded members please set me straight? I do hope this clears up any confusion.

Coppie's garlic bread is butter (flavored?) or oil, and garlic powder I think, but it is very good and we get it every time there, though I think I will now get the bruschetta instead.

its open as of Feb2

according to the price and size of portion served on pasta for example, you need to consider it 1/2 price and 1/2 sized portion

a double order of pasta for 120 baht is the right size for 120 baht, a normal order of pasta for 60 baht seems like its 1/2 a portion and not filling for me.

I really like the place, the guy that runs it is one of the most politest Thais I have ever run across

Last night arrived at 16h45 with two children, the three of us were all happy and satisfied having orderd two fish dishes. Arriving and ordering after 17h00 is not an option.

Wow...that is too bad. Unfortunately, when they needed to change their hours due to illness in the family, it became very hard for us to visit. I hope they open somewhere else when things calm down, because they were two of the nicest, most polite, friendly Thai people we've met in Udon Thani, and the food was quite good and value priced.
