Krua Mai Narm (ครัวไม้น้ำ), Ramkhamhaeng Road, Min Buri 

By car: 
The shortest way is to go up Ramkhamhaeng Road almost all the way to the end.

From town, you can go out Rama IX Road to Ramkhamhaeng Road, or go out the Sirat Expressway (a.k.a. Rama IX Expressway) and exit at Ramkhamhaeng Road.

However, traffic on Ramkhamhaeng Road is heavy these days due to MRT construction, so you can also travel out Seri Thai Road, take a right on Route 3119 just after Min Buri Prison, turn left on Ramkhamhaeng Road, and go about 1km to find the restaurant on your left. If you come to end of Ramkhamhaeng Road at the T-junction with Route 304, you have gone too far, and the restaurant is back about 100 metres.

According to Google, the fastest route is via the Outer Ring Road, if you don’t mind paying the toll.

From the Bangkok-Chonburi Motorway, take the Outer Ring Road (Route 9) going north, pay the toll, and take the first exit for Ramkhamhaeng/Minburi, which brings you to Ramkamhaeng Road.

Turn right onto Ramkhamhaeng Road towards Min Buri, go about 8km, and turn left into the restaurant carpark.

If you are too cheap to pay the toll on the Outer Ring Road, you can take Rama IX Road or Rama IX Expressway out of town towards the airport (Bangkok-Chonburi Motorway), exit left onto the frontage road after Sri Nakarin Road, and follow the frontage road as it curves around to parallel the Outer Ring Road until you eventually reach Ramkhamhaeng Road. Turn right onto Ramkhamhaeng Road towards Min Buri, go about 8km, and turn left into the restaurant carpark.

Another toll-free option is to take the Bangkok-Chonburi Motorway to Rom Klao Road (Route 3119), and go up Rom Klao to Ramkhamhaeng Road, but this route is a little slower.

If you are not driving:
The fastest and cheapest way from town is to take the sewer rocket up the Klong Saen Saeb. Take the old boat to the current end at Wat Sriboonreung, then change to a smaller boat from Wat Sriboonrueng to the new end at Talat Min Buri. From Talat Minburi, take a taxi or motorcycle to the restaurant, which is only about a kilometer from there.

Note that if the new service to Min Buri is not operating for some inexplicable reason, you can still take the old boat to the end at W
at Sriboonreung, walk out to Ramkhamhaeng Road, and take a taxi to the restaurant.
