Although this topic says BanZaan, I am not reviewing the wet market, but the food street outside the market that sprouts up after 530pm in the evening. Best Thai food we've eaten in Mai Khao and Patong (even the high end restaurants cannot match the taste at BanZaan) We entered the market from the left and found 3 stalls selling... More

When I'm in Thailand I like to eat like the Thai's. I'm not interested in buying seafood by the gram in a restaurant surrounded by Europeans. If you want the authentic street food experience in Patong go to Bazaan Market. We ate there for 4 nights in a row and you won't pay more that about 300 baht for amazing... More

This is an amazing place if you love seafood (or just food in general). Buy your seafood downstairs and get it cooked to your preference upstairs. It costed me about as much as eating lobster pasta at a hotel restaurant so it wasn't ridiculously cheap considering the process of buying ingredients in a wet market and carrying it upstairs. If...

There's lots of food stalls and carts with a ton of different Thai fare. The fruit shakes are among the best in the city. Be sure to check out the long, tightly packed row of food carts to the right of the market.

You choose and buy the seafood from the market downstairs, and then you head upstairs to get them cooked and enjoy a seafood feast. Had a hard time choosing which stores to go to during my two visits there, we tried stall number 6, and number 8. Tried stall number 6 the first time we were there, had two small... More

My wife and I and are 13 yr old daughter ate here twice. Both times we were treated like royalty by the people running the stall from her motorbike. We sat down at tables behind her motorbike as she made us some food and her friend made us the other dishes. All the food we ate was really really tasty... More

We've been to Patong so many times and this is the first time we heard of this place. Every time we come here we rave about the seafood but it always hits us hard in the pocket as it can cost more towards the $70-$80 AUD for a night of seafood feasting but at least it doesn't ride us broke... More

A wet market where you can choose your own fresh seafood or any other food and take it upstairs to the food court for them to cook for you. Great experience. The seafood was fresh and good. We had lobsters, crabs and tom yam prawns and pineapple fried rice and vegetables. Overall still cheaper than those touristy seafood restaurants. The... More

A typical wet market for tourists who r first time visitors. The concept of buying yr own seafood and bring it to the food court kitchens on the upper level was great. Price wise, I seriously do not see many locals here, I can just assume it is not cheap. But cheaper than anywhere else for a tourist. Definitely an... More
