“Great Seafood very popular with the locals”
Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

This is a very busy multi story restaurant, more like a canteen or a hectic central London Chinese restaurant. The crab with garlic was very good but expensive TBT 1,450 for 900 gms about $45. The mongolian hot pot with prawns was spice and delicious with big juicy prawns. Egg plant in oyster sauce also very good. We would certainly go again. Bill for two including 2 beers TBT 2,000. Very friendly service and fun but not for people who like table cloths.

Food was excellent! We stayed at Swissotel Le Concorde and their branch in Ratchada is just across the road. We ate 3 out 5 nights we were in Bangkok. It was that good! I have to admit service is not the best but it's not the worse. Prices are average.

Must try!!!!!

“Wonderful Seafood...Horrendous Service!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We visited the Somboon Seafood at Surawong last evening. First, let me say that they really do have excellent, fresh seafood. We arrived about 4:30 (they open at 4:00) and the entire staff simply stood around in small groups with their backs to the customers and with absolutely no interest in their customers. I waved to them and they simply ignored me. I finally had to go to the woman answering their phone and asked if we could get service. It really never improved after that. The waitresses were surly and simply rude; no smiles, no thank you. They couldn't wait to get back to their personal conversations. The food rated a five; the service a -1, so I will give it a three overall. Their popularity with large tour groups from China and Japan continues and the staff really do not seem interested in a party of two or four. Hopefully they have a better Thai customer-friendly attitude at their other four branches.

This is the first time in Thailand we did not leave a tip for service.

One other suggestion is that they turn the restaurant telephone ringer down. It really detracted from the meal and conversation to hear it ringing loudly all night long.

The prices were fair, but their wine prices are too high.

Excellent Food and the quality is great and you get everything fresh, but the prices are expensive.

before taking a taxi make sure you the address of the hotel and its logo because the taxi drivers takes you to a different place which is also called seafood market, just because they get commission and the food is bad if these taxi drivers take you there.
