    Seafood Market, Bangkok (THAILAND)

    Seafood Market & Resterant
    A very big seafood centre, including fresh seafood & vegetable market and resterant. You buy fresh seafood (still moving in water) and vege, they will cook them for you. Interesting.

    Favorite Dish: Curry/Chilli Crab, Grilled Lobster & Tiger Prawn, Grilled Fish.

    Seafood Market and Restaurant....

    Seafood Market and Restaurant. Do not be mistaken by another restaurant with quite a similar name which has a International infront. They're logo is very much the same.
    The capacity of this restaurant is enormous. The ambience is brightly lighted, air-conditioned, clean and comfortable. It also has outdoor sitting and VIP rooms. First, you got to shop and purchase the meal requirements include vegetable, fruits, beverages at the market. The waiter will pick up your purchases at your table. The menu has the prices of different cooking style cater for your preference. Singaporean like to have steamed prawns when they are fresh but our french colleagues prefer them fried. The chef gave us both. The prices is reasonable for fresh seafood,good service, ambience, tasty cooking and a satifying meal. Of course, a normal road side seafood restaurant will have a price difference of about 20%-40% provided it is a trusted restaurant.

    Their motto is 'If it swims, we have it' and nothing could be further from the truth. You choose your seafood, then choose your style of cooking - the seafood is delicious. This place is huge, but the service is good. If you can handle the heat, eat outside i nthe garden courtyard as the main inside area feels like a supermarket.

    Favorite Dish: Garlic prawns or nay other stir fry

    Seafood market: Bangkok Retsuarants

    by bulldogtwo Written Dec 8, 2008

    Probably one of the most popular places to visit is the Grand Palace and the Emerald Buddah, located at the same site. However there are many many places that tourists visit while in Bangkok. Temple of the Dawn, Reclining Buddah, Jim Thompson Silk, China Town, Golden Mount, just to name a few. You can find all of these on the web, to include the floating markets. When you ask about the floating market I assume you are asking about Damnoen Saduak. I think that most tourists would be split on this. I always suggest going to this place the night before, get up early and hit the floating market at about 6am to beat the tourist rush. Once the other tourist get there it's no fun. You can also take advantage of the floating markets around Bangkok, just as fun and a lot less tourists. You'll have to hire a long tail boat on the river, access points all along the river, but if you need a reference point you can go to the Oriental Hotel or Royal Orchid and catch on there. Again, go early. The food is the only reason I ever go anymore, breakfast noodle soups, fruit, little snacks, etc...

    Restuarants in Bankok, you don't say what cuisine. You can virtually get any type of cuisine, european, american, thai japanese, chinese, great seafood, etc.. the price ranges vary as much as the many restaurants. Once you get there you will not have any problem finding a decent place to eat. There are maps at hotels and/or ask the hotel staff. Just a piece of advise though, as is the case of many big cities, expensive doesn't always mean better food! There are some great cheap places all over Bangkok, to include some of the street food. We've had some of the best noodles and noodle soups right on the streets. Don't know about the bed club, seen it but not interested in visiting myself.
    Hope that helped

    Seafood Market and Restaurant: Great Tourist Experience

    It was a great tourist experience. Yes, this restaurant is much more expensive than other local restaurants but this is what you remember 10 years later as part of your Bangkok experience.

    First you buy food and wine. They have a variety of local fish, lobster, crayfish, shrimp, clams, mussels, crabs, fruits and veggies. They also have fine French and Australian wines. They have a Japanese selection as well -- sushi, sashimi, tampura, etc.

    After you pay, you take a table. Waiter will ask you how you like them cooked, or you can consult a chef. We ordered a lot of grilled shrimp, tom-yum with assorted seafood, garlic morning glory, deep fried fish, etc.

    It cost about US$400 for a group of 8 of us, including wine and tips. It was a lot of great food. I wouldn't say I would go there every time I go to Bangkok, but if you have not been there, you owe it to yourself to give it a visit.

    Favorite Dish: Grilled shrimp!

    The restaurant is spacious. Has a good ambience and range of seafood. Price is reasonable, and the cooking is not that bad!
