By Car/Taxi: 

Take Rama 9 Eastwards (at ground level or via expressway- If the latter, take Srinakarindra exit)

On approaching Srinakarindra Road take left turn slip road towards Srinakarindra Northbound. Zero Odometer on hitting Srinakarindra Road. (Hwy 3344) towards Bang Kapi.  

Proceed straight via traffic light junction at 0.9km.

At second traffic light junction (2.1km) get into the middle or right lane. Immediately after second traffic lights you will pass over Khlong San Saeb and reach a 3rd traffic light junction at 2.4km. Turn right (signposted Buang Kum and Minburi).

After only 300m turn left at the 4th Traffic light junction (signposted Kaset-Nawamin).

You are now on Nawamin Road (Hwy 3202). Continue straight and at 4.4 km pass through traffic light junction No 5 (Happy Land to the left).

As you approach traffic light junction No 6 (Soi 51 on the left) at 4.9km, get into the left lane and proceed straight on. After the traffic light junction you will cross a Khlong Bridge and immediately at the end of the bridge at 5.1km turn sharp left into Soi 53 and the NIttaya Gai Yang restaurant (Big coloured concrete chicken at the entrance) is on your right. Park in the restaurant car parking spaces at front, side and back.

Please note that although it is only 5.1 km from Rama 9/Srinakarindra junction to the restaurant, allow at least 30 minutes for this due to the frequent traffic lights, roadworks and thousands of car-bound Sunday shoppers visiting the Mall and Tesco Lotus at Bang Kapi.

Alternative route for those who prefer to travel faster (but further) or who miss the Srinakarindra turn-off from Rama 9.

Take the Rama 9 expressway east.
