Review of Tha Chang Cafe

We sat outside one late morning having a few drinks and people watching.

From the name you'd think it was just a bar, but in fact it had a really interesting menu.
There appeared to be a lot of locals inside in the airconditioned restaurant. Prices very reasonable and food looked good.

You better speak a little bit of Thai to be able to interact with the local crowd. Nice and chill out place. Don't go if you're under 21 yo.

If you want to have a drink and some pub grub at a local hangout where it's cheap enough for students to visit (some go there daily), then this is it.
Don't be expecting this nightspot to contain poles and agogo. This is not the place (go somewhere else).
Instead, expect authentic local Thai service and drinks that won't hurt your wallet.
If you get lucky, you can make some local Thai friends who may even offer their friendship and transportation to visit local tourist sites. If you get luckier, you might even find your local Thai soulmate there, or perhaps a one-night-stand.
But beware... ladyboys.
Most important of all, come with a good mind and decent intentions to let down your hair for some wholesome merrymaking.

This is the best place to go out with authentic Thais! I went with some friends from CMU, Who reserved a table. Cheap drinks and delicious food, this is the best spot to have a fun time socializing and people watching

This bar was super cool - it is where locals come and have fun - so if you are looking for something else more authentic, and or are sick of Loi Kroh/Zoe Yellow, this would be good fun. Local music played there, and there's a DJ who remixes the tunes. The drinks were also pretty cheap! ~50/60 for a beer, and you can get buckets of Thai whisky with some mixer for only 250?? Was jam packed when we got there on a random weekday night, and everyone (also a pretty young crowd) was thoroughly enjoying themselves, dancing with their friends and so on
