“Fresh Seafood at a Fair Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This was a unique experience, as you select your meal from a wide range of fresh seafood and have it prepared based on your specifications. The price was fair, given the seafood selection. The open kitchen was a nice touch, as it allowed you to see the chefs prepare the meal. Definitely a neat culinary experience.

“if you are a lover of seafood then you will love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Huge restaurant with open view of "live" dishes and kitchen! you pick you dishes which are swimming around, you place them in a super-market trolley and select the style of cooking. It;s not that the experience is fun ( especially if you have children), but also the outcome of every selection you make to have for dinner, is excellent!For me and my family, its like a "must" visit every time we visit Bangkok! We never forget to take with us the business card of the restaurant ( you must be very accurate with the taxi driver!) Low prices and polite service! Enjoy!

“Fantastic food and fair prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

This was a really nice experience for the whole family. The food was nice and completely fresh. The kitchen is open, so you can watch all the chefs preparing all the nice food. The pricelevel is high but fair, seafood is an expensive delicacy worldwide. But still a lot cheaper than at home.

“Farang foreigners BEWARE!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Never EVER take a taxi or Tuk Tuk to this place! They get up to 30% depending on your spend!!!
Plus $3700thb for an average meal for 2 is ridiculously expensive for an ok restaurant.
The wait staff are FOREVER staring at you and less than 5 secs after an empty drink hits the table, they are there like suit tailors trying to sell you more..
The tuk tuk driver told us he got paid $370thb (10%) but if he gets rich people spending $10-15k in a group he gets more (up to 30%)
NO WONDER there's no prices on any menus ANYWHERE???
Gotta love the Thailand CORRUPTION

“If it swims they have it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

There motto is " if it swims we have it " and they do ; live , very fresh, and almost anything from Maine lobster , to local fish, live pick from tank fish, a group of sushi makers that will do whatever you ask, and fresh is all they do .
You pick what you want to eat from tank, on ice and pick Veg. and bread , wine from there large wine area. pay by weight for that .
Sit down and then waiter will ask how and with what spices if you want each item cooked; steamed, fried, boiled, BBQ, whatever each item you want and how.

Relax sip your wine and as you asked the items return cooked , prepared to perfection, it has the look of a cafeteria seating and is very , very large inside, but they always keep people apart and if you wish an outside area, private room, seating for large group whatever they have it.

I make this first or second stop always here for dinner, the best seafood in Bangkok, and a selection that none can compare too. They have it all and do it better than anyplace in Bangkok. If they do not have it , it is not in town or world, they have such a selection I have to go a few times a week just to get all the items I like.
Plan a long, fun, great night for dinner and relax and enjoy a truly great meal and you will go home with leftovers and a huge smile.
I bring my own shrimp sauce for shrimp cocktail and tarter sauce for broiled fish, but other than that , they have it all and do it great. If you go as a couple, or group you will not be happier than this place, and remember when you are eating that huge live Maine lobster " you are in Bangkok" and the oysters are bigger and better also, as is everything they have.
