Somboon is an institution in Bangkok and this new upscale venue in Central Embassy is certainly worth a visit. But do book as it has become very popular with tourists.

Located in the 5th Floor of Central Embassy, and just next to Phloen Chit BTS! They provided different size of portion fir you to order! Food was great, specially on river prawn and deep fried prawn ball. Suggest to do the reservation before you go.

Somboon Seafood is my regular go to place whenever I am in Bangkok. However, this time, I am very disappointed with the quality and service. Food came out cold and cannot even get more tea after meal. Will never visit his branch again.

I’m not quite sure why everyone loves this place. Easily worst meal I had in all of Asia. The curry crab came out so fast it was barely hot, it’s like it was pre-prepared so early they the sauce was like congealed and the flavor...More

It is in a major department store. I am quite sure they accept credit card... However you need to check the minimum payment. Every shop has different standard. Cheers.
