The turnover is fast, the service slightly curt and the atmosphere loud and hectic... but all totally enjoyable. We had some grilled squid with seafood sauce on the side, prawns with roasted chilli paste (nam prig pao) and baked prawns with wun sen noodles (gung...More

Great seafood. Couldn't fault any of the dishes that we had. Perhaps popular because of its position, but did not disappoint. Arrive early, or queue.

Here's another restaurant that I can say, "If I could only bring another tummy with me, I definitely would in a heartbeat." We never regretted following the blogs and reviews recommended by so many people about this restaurant. We arrived in Chinatown like around a...More

Can't help but be taken in by your surroundings, take a seat and enjoy the hustle and bustle of Chinatown! It's a great show, we were sat next to 4 travelling Phillipinos who were great company. The food was good rather than excellent the service...More

My preference by and large would be T&K Seafood which is just across this place. But seafood lovers can venture this place as well to form their own opinion. You will be seated at this place sooner than at T&K as the queues are much...More

Don't miss out on the steamed fish in lime sauce, crab meat curry, chilli mussels, squid in lime & grilled prawns. Don't be fooled by the location.This was by far the best seafood of the entire trip!

Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is
Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During
the day, the main street and its small alleyways are
filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and
flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and
all-day markets. The real action, however, happens
after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and
tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast
