A significant disappointment!

All three dishes looked dull and were served at room temperature. We had an overpowering impression that nothing had been cooked to order.

The garupa was relatively tasty. The clams were not in their shells and were chewy and tasteless. The kale with salty fish was extremely tired. The rice finally arrived 10 minutes later after multiple reminders.

The bill was significantly more than anticipated. The garupa was twice the expected price, which was justified because the menu was out of date. A bucket of ice was B40. We were even offered a pack of table tissues as long as we were willing to pay for them.

Wang Muk is a really place with Thais for fresh seafood done well. Here you get all the basic steamed and fried seafood dishes. The crabs and prawns, in particular, are very fresh as the fishing boat pier is just right there.
On weekends Wang Muk can be an overly busy restaurant with large groups, so I suspect weekdays would be more manageable. I always like restaurants that were built to be restaurants, not homes that are later converted. Thus, I feel Wang Muk has a better kitchen and a spacious seating area that borders the bay. You do not get magnificent ocean scenery here, but the cool sea breeze does freshen you up.
Our sea bass fried in fish sauce was superb, as was our crab fried rice. The stir-fried shellfish in oyster sauce was good but too salty. The soft-shelled crab fried in garlic was excellent and of good portion. The squid stir-fried with salted egg was okay but not the best around.
Service was slow and kind of rough. Lunchtime s a trying time for the staff and customers, and it was difficult for us to get any kind of attention.
If you want basic seafood that is not too far from Bangkok, but do not expect all the fancy trimmings of a superior, higher end restaurant, Wang Muk hits the spot just fine.
