Cabbages and Condoms
This restaurant is run by Thailand's Population and Community Development Association, whose founder, former Thai senator Mechai Viravaidya, believes "birth control should be as cheap as vegetables"—hence the restaurant's name! There is plenty of room, inside and outside in the garden, which is nice if the weather permits. An extensive variety of cocktails and other drinks is available at the "Vasectomy Bar," and the service is friendly and efficient. This is a great choice for good quality Thai food, albeit in slightly surreal surroundings (especially the walls covered with condoms from across the globe!).
I recently visited Thailand with a friend. It was one of the best places to stay in Thailand. I loved the place due its amazing ambience. The thing i loved the most is the environment at the hotel. You feel like at a party all the time. The food is also good. However, the value which they offer for money is not worth it. The rates should be a little low. But they are out there to earn money so cant say anything about it.
Anyways it is a great place to stay for the couples and young people. Enjoy a happening stay in this hotel.
We just returned from a four week trip throughout southeast Asia. C and C was the BEST dining experience of our time abroad.
The food was good, the atmosphere most unique, and the musicial entertainment terrific. The prices more than resonable and service was excellent. Plus the condom theme was both fun and intersting. It is a must stop for visitors to Bangkok
I can't think of a better place to eat a meal in BKK than at C&C since you know their profits support a great cause! The experience alone is worth the trip. Where else can you dine under Condom Blossoms? A short walk from the Asosk SkyTrain stop makes this restaurant appealing because you can avoid the traffic jams at dinner time. And the food is FANTASTIC!
Our motley group of "Papa Smurf, Landmark, Mother Hen and her chicks" had several great appetizers, wonderful shrimp curry served in a hollowed out coconut shell, and melt-in-your-mouth banana fritters with ice cream.
And the gift shop has one-of-a-kind momentos you'll want to bring home from your visit!
Wish this place didn't take a 24 hour plane ride to get to!
When I first went to C&C, back in 1994, it was a little house with cooking downstairs and a few tables upstairs. Over the years I have seen it grow ever larger but the quality of the food and the dervice has never waivered.
It is the perfect place for foreign visitors to try Thai food without needing asbestos mouth guards. They will cook it as mild or as hot as you want it. The really cool thing is that every baht you spend helps people less fortunate. An experience for the sole as well as the body.
My wife and I always visit when we come to Bangkok. The food is fantastic and such great value for money. The staff are just great, so friendly.
The decor is stunning fairy lights (lots of fairy lights) strung from the trees create a great effect. Try and eat outside if you can, it will be an experience you wont forget.
Dont let the walk up to the up to the restaurant put you off although its a little dark you are quite safe. You are in Bangkok.
Dont forget the Souvenir shop on the way out. All the produce is made by Thai people and all the profits from this enterprise go toward helping to provide a living for the them.
They have some unique and fun gifts and it is a charity so dig deep into your pockets. You can make a difference.
I hope you enjoy your visit to this little pocket of heaven as much as we do.
Its to good to miss.
