“the best in Cha am”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Huge, spacious, clean, good Thai food, plenty of parking - WOW - (also can be noisy from the awful bands). As many Thais as foreigners here.

Located about 1 kilometer before the main gate of the hospital (and also on the beach side of the road) if you're coming from the main crossroads in Cha am. In front, from the road there are huge signs in Thai but none in English, although the bottom of the large sign does say "restaurant" in English.

Service is usually OK unless there is a large group. There's always one waitstaff who speaks adequate English although that doesn't always prevent misunderstandings. The prices are reasonable for the setting.

Dishes vary in quality. We've really liked the papaya salad with grilled river prawns (they also do it as papaya salad alone, if you ask), the off-menu gai larb (minced chicken salad in a sour dressing), and the prawns with red curry paste. We used to like their tom ka gai (chicken & coconut soup) and their massaman curry a lot but not since we've had the ones at the Sheraton InAzia.

OK dishes we've tried here: chicken with honey, stir fried chicken with chilli and cashews, steamed fish with chilli and lemon (it isn't as sour as the best ones we've had elsewhere), the stir fried mixed vegetables and the stir fried broccoli (the last two both have a similar taste to the chicken and cashew stir fry).

Disappointing dishes included chicken salad, spare ribs, tempura (a little too oily).

We tend not to have fish here as Yao Seafood is better that way. It's about 3 minutes further down Klong Tien Rd by car - about 150-200 meters before you get to the unsigned road with the large archway that leads to the beach - also no English sign here but with two man-size black statues and lots of figurines in front of it. It's on the beach side of the road and has a large parking lot.

“The best and fairest in the area.”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

As regular guests to sea zabb we pay particular attention to quality freshness and price. In my opinion sea zabb scores top marks in all categories. Whether you're a seafood lover or more partial to traditional thai food the restaurant offers something for everyone's taste buds. Just one speciality of many is the Thai omelette.
Besides the the friendly staff, I must mention the overall cleanliness in particular the sanitary facilities.
As far as prices are concerned, we paid 3200 Baht for 8 people and that included a substantial amount of Beverage.
The live music can be a bit too loud at times but a friendly talk to the staff can fix that.

Live music, outdoor eating, polities staff, good food (especially if you love seafood), a selection of French and Italian wines if thats what you want, and to boot, a private room with Karaoke. I've tried it all and its a great place to eat. Highly recommended.
