I love this branch but somewhat quality of cooking dropped.. could it be because of songkran?? Nevertheless ry the raw marinated roe crab. It's a delicacy. Try it !! Only this branch has it!

Steamed butterfish with old chinese plums sauce was my favourite dish. And for a french guy, it does MEAN Something. Better than anything I had before, including french food. Yes. Really. I could have fly ten thousand kilometers to eat one. The first time I had it was in 2006. I still remember. The only place where I was happy... More

I would like to say that I really love the fish (the picture is attached below)! The fish is fried perfectly and the sauce as... More

I have been visiting this branch of Somboon seafood every winter for more than 10 years now and have never been disappointed. They highlight their crab in red curry on their menu and with good reason. You decide the size you want based on your guests and how many other dishes you might order and the whole crab is presented... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our Tour guide, quite basic decor but the food was absolutely delicious, we had noodles with prawn and pork with morning glory and sea bass with soy and stir fried asparagus. Great service, good value

The "curried" crab is splendid. Do not worry that this will be a very spicy dish, it is just perfectly balanced to appreciate the delicate crab. Then, a whole sea bass cooked in salt, wonderful prawns and the most delicious dipping sauces for everything. Accompanied by very good friends I felt I was less a Farang than perhaps I expected...

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
