After seven years of operation, this garden home setting in Bangkok’s Phrom Phong area has decided to close its doors. Today will be the last day to dine in this greenery-filled house located up Soi Sukhumvit 39. 

“After seven years of good memories, the party is over and our last day of operation is [Thursday],” Kram announced on a Facebook post.


Kram, which means “Indigo,” was opened in 2014 by Supreecha “Jan” Junsunjai inside a 50-year-old home and garden decorated with bean bags and hanging light bulbs. It has served classic Thai dishes such as curry with crabmeat and wild betel leaf, stir-fried pork with shrimp paste, stir-fried malindjo leaf with egg. It may best be remembered as a nice setting to meet friends over beers.

The owners had recently made some upgrades, including adding an enclosed bar area by the outside garden.

After Bo.lan and Chu, Kram is the latest pandemic casualty. Several restaurants have announced their closure in recent weeks due to the absence of tourists, financial loss, expensive rents, and lack of government support.
