The founder of this restaurant is Senator Mechai Viravidiya. He opened the restaurant to spread of knowledge of contraception and to decrease HIV cases in Bangkok. The money customers pay goes to the CDA (Community Development Association) which also aims to educate citizens about safe sex. It was name Cabbages & Condoms because cabbages are one, if not the most common food in Thailand. The comparison thrives to make people realized that condoms should be as common as cabbages.
The decoration is very themed centered and picturesque. The first thing you may see when entering is life sized manikins with condoms decorating them as if it where clothes.
There are also lamps covered in condoms, articles about AIDS prevention, and instead of giving you regular restaurant mints with your bill you get condoms.
The restaurant has two seating areas, indoor and outdoor. The outdoor part or the garden is most known for its water fall down a wall. However, if you decide yo sit outdoor be aware of the mosquitos. Most of the time the waiters give bottles of insect repellent but you can also may ask for one. The indoor area is two floors, the second floor is a balcony over looking the garden. At night it gives a more romantic atmosphere because of the lights decorating it.
The C&C restaurant offers a pleasant dinning experience with excellent food. The menu is very varied with various appetizers, soups, tradition dishes for spicy lovers or non-exotic food lovers too. Even vegetarians are taked in consideration. The price is very moderate. Great food, great prices, great sense of humor and many many condoms, but just as the restaurant motto says "Our food is Guaranteed not to cause pregnancy.".
