By the restaurant's facade appearance and clientele, I was once been misled that T.S. Cuisine is a 'tourist-class' restaurant. So for many years I didn't bother to give it a straight look, until my foodie friend reminded me that my prejudice is probably not realistic.
Recently the Northern runoffs threatening the capital scared foreign tourists away from Bangkok, and it is locals eating at T.S. Cuisine; indeed it serves authentic and affordable Thai cuisine with a solid Southern twist on the home-cooking approach. Within a month, I went there several times, with my local friends and my visiting friends in separate occasions. They all love the food there.
