Stay away. Do NOT take a cabbie or tuk tuk drivers suggestion to go here. The restaurant food is average at best and you will be shocked by the bill as I was.

Do not go near this place!!!! Very overpriced. As with all the other reviews, was dropped off here by a Tuk Tuk claiming that China Town was closed.

This is a very bad experience i had in Bangkok. When the time i did research, everyone was sharing how delicious is the food in T&K seafood, chinatown, bangkok. So, no doubt, after shopping in Platinum mall, me and my friend was waiting taxi outside the mall (as there is a taxi station). A teow chiew taxi driver said he will brings us to chinatown, but when the car is about to start, he suddenly told us Chinatown was closed on today for washing, and asked us want to go for shop or eat. we said 'EAT'. Then he told us, i introduce you to another seafood in town, Pratunam Seafood (which is same boss as T&K seafood in chinatown). So we also agreed to go. Once the taxi reached in front of the shop, the boss came to welcome us and brought us into his restaurant. There is only 1 table tourists in the restaurant. So, we didnt aware of something wrong and we just ordered our food, 1 tomyam for 2 person, and 1 deep fried squid..
who knows...the squid is 400g (120 baht / 100 gram) and we just ordered 2 white rice and 2 drinking water, end up the bill is 1060baht.....(i do not know why there is 17% tax, maybe 10% is for that taxi driver).

The place is far from BTS station, and we decided not to take any taxi / tuk tuk in this place. end up we spent 30-40 mins walked to Chit Lom BTS station . This is very awful........
