Respond to Review of May Kaidee's Vegetarian Restaurant - Samsen
Review: I ate at both locations many times in Feb of 2006 and it was a true delight. Memorable sticky rice with mango and banana. Was never disappointed in the food and would return in a second. I also stayed in a guest room for a few nights. I really liked the accommodation in that it seemed to be a very authentic thai experience. However, I wouldn't recommend staying there- based on my belief that my particular room had bed bugs. (Corner bedroom) (All of the typical signs- wooden bed frame, many little spots of blood on the sheets and walls.) Perhaps they have taken care of this problem in the last 5 years. This wouldn't deter me from partaking in their wonderful vegetarian fare, though. Her cooking course was memorable, delightful, and very educational! I loved that we started by going to the grocery store/market and were sent home with all of the recipes. I also took pictures of the ingredients so that I could more easily find them at home. She sang during the lesson and taught us her special May Kaidee song. So much fun! Amazing value at $20USD for 3 hours and a ton of delicious food. I have since cooked her recipes many times since returning home!

We apologize for your experience at our guest house. We strive to offer a much better service than you were provided.
We had our building inspected and fortunately we do *not* have bedbugs, however we do have a termite problem. It's possible that you saw evidence of termites that in fact had eaten some of the wooden bed frame.
We've started to plan a complete renovation of the guest house, and expect to finish the project later this year - free of termites!... while offering higher quality accommodation overall.
We would like to offer you a free room at our guest house once the renovation is finished, on your next visit to Bangkok. Let us know.
Finally, thank you for separating your opinion of the guest house experience from the experience with our restaurants and cooking school.
