You can sample a variety of Thai dishes like tom yum goong and green curry.

There is also a shaved ice machine, so you can make your own shaved ice.

The food is delicious and the prices are affordable, so it is a perfect spot for enjoying a meal with family or friends.

Just outside of Higashi Nakano Station, there is an interesting restaurant called PAO Caravan Sarai that serves dishes from countries like Afghanistan and Kazakhstan.

The interior has a wonderfully exotic atmosphere as well.
