Just finished our lunch. Food arrived too fast and when we try the food all were warm (even for their curry crab) and not hot. We also noticed those sitting around us the food arrived were fast too. To me seem like all pre-cooked and when order they just bring the food out.

Heard so much about som boon from friends and decided to try for myself. Walked in on a Sunday evening after a last min reservation was not successful but fortunately only waited for 20min or so as we were early for dinner (before 6pm). Highly recommend the curry fried crabs, Tom yum goong and steamed seabass which is really flavourful and fresh. Came out and saw a Super Long queue outside the restaurant, definitely avoid peak hour if you do not have a reservation!

I must say that they served the best crab dish ever!! I love the curry crab, i expect it to be a little hot n spicy but it turned out not spicy at all.. the sauce was so good.. and finally we order another plate of the curry crab.
The other dish that i ordered were kailan with crispy pork and it also veeeery good... i like it so much..
Another one is the prawn ball, taste was just okay, not so special.

The curry crab was the superstar! Must try!!!

I don't even like eating crabs but after eating the Curry Crab of Somboon, i had a change of heart instantly. It was rich and flavorful. I wish it was a little spicier but heck that's not a deal breaker.

We had reserved our table cause we heard that the queue will be 30mins to 1 hour and we wanted to avoid that. Good thing they accept reservations (6:30pm onwards, only walk-in).

We've tried the curry crab and peppered crab + fried ribs, everything was delish!

Would go here once a month cause of health reasons haha (cholesterol overload).

IF you are looking for a place that is not too touristy then skip this one as there's a lot of tourists who eats here... but if that's not an issue, please go ahead.. them crabs are waiting!

PS: bring wet wipes, it would be messy for sure!

If you love #crab, i highly recommend Crab curry at #Somboon. There are quite a few negative reviews of Somboon Seafood across the web, but I wonder how many reviewers actually ate at a real Somboon versus the fake ones. If you take taxi, taxi driver will driver you to a fake Somboon. Take BTS to #Siam station. One of the original Somboon's branch in #SiamSquare1
