NileGuide Expert tip:
Do you find crab dishes too messy and too much work? No worries, Somboon can serve crab without the suit of armor.
If customers are coming from Singapore to eat your fried curry crab, that's saying a lot. This Bangkok franchise of casual atmosphere but slightly upscale seafood is one of the places to go for crab dishes and a slew of others. The fried and steamed fish dishes are super as are the selections of shrimp, shellfish and squid. The tom yum goong is quite nice and fresh oysters are served on the half shell. Prices are up in the 200-350 range per dish and more for certain specialties by weight. Service is top-notch. The menu offers some non-seafood Thai options as well. Beer and liquor are served. This is not far from Silom Road area. Look for 4 other locations throughout Bangkok - at UdomSuk
, Bantadthong, Sam Yan and Ratchada.
