Yum

Great spot by the water. Food is great here. Traditional Thai food. Mostly Thai locals come here. The hummock is the best (fish custard cooked in banana leaf) sounds foul I know but try it!

Highly rated restaurant. You can pick your own seafood from the basins to be cooked. Don't skip this step!! We did and what a mistake that was. Our fish was fried to death with only skin and bones. No flesh whatsoever. We love spicy food, to the tune of 5 stars in US; this place is so spicy that you... More

Excellent traditional Thai seafood restaurant frequented by Thais for good reason, value for money, great food and service! We had soft shell crab in curry sauce, lemon squid, sam lee fish with cashew nut salad, and som tam (tradition spicy papaya salad) served with rice and with soft drinks and local beer for less than a single dish in the...

Like the food and sea view. Location is unclear and hard to find. Food there is out of my expectation. Price is cheap unless you are keen on lobsters or tiger prawns.

Great location near Moodong canal, fresh seafood and delicious all menu. It's great for family time with reasonable price. I went there for dinning with family around 3 times and love this place. If you want to find some seafood restaurant, please choose this restaurant to be one of your choice, you will love that as me!!!

We found this seafood restaurant kind of by accident but glad we did. Good selection of live seafood to choose from with excellent beach front views overlooking Chalong bay. Whole fish and tom yam kung soup were both authentically prepared and delicious.

One of the signs that a place is good has to be the number of locals who eat there. When we went there on a Saturday evening, at about 6.30, families were gathering for dinner and the atmosphere was friendly and warm. Not a tourist in sight (maybe I was lucky that day). We took a chance and ordered the... More

We had Prawns (4 huge ones) steamed with fresh garlic, delicious. Crabs(2 medium) with a curry type sauce. So fresh and amazingly succulent. Wing bean salad was very tasty too. Typical Thai open restaurant on the mud banks of Chalong, on the same street as the zoo. ** Thais really need to start being a bit more pro active about... More
