Enjoying a meal in a small restaurant

Non Sa-et consists of two parts, the old village along the road, and the new village just besides the road.
In the old village there are a lot of small restaurants. You can have a good meal there, like kai yang (grilled chicken), som tam (papaya salad, very spicy), larb (spicy minced meat), nam tok (grilled meat), and a lot more dishes. All restaurants are along the road.
In 1994 it was a two-lane road, with big trees on each side. The restaurants had terraces under these trees, a nice place to sit.
Now, in 2000, the road has six lanes, and the trees are gone. The restaurants are still there, and the food is still very good. But something is missing. Maybe we are the only ones who bother about it, the people in the village don't complain. They propably are better off, more traffic, so the can earn more.
The new part of Non Sa-et consists of new houses around and behind a market. A lot of these houses have no inhabitants yet, and the market is still very small. The old village lacks a lot of comfort, but it's a nice place to be.


When we write about a place, we write about what we saw and did there, and what we think about it; no more and no less.
This is not a travelguide (we are not complete), and it is neither an advice to visit or not to visit a place. Other sites can give you that information.
Our opinion about a hotel or restaurant is not ment to be a (positive or negative) review, you can find that information on other sites.
It is our description of a situation on a certain moment, influenced by our mood.
