Lek & Rut Seafood (Red)
NileGuide Expert Says:
This seafood restaurant with red-shirt clad staff is right across the street from a green-shirt competitor. The two best places in Chinatown for grilled seafood.
49-51 Phadung Dao Rd, Chinatown (Yaowarat)
Call it "the red seafood restaurant" in Bangkok's Chinatown
if you will. This is because the servers and cooks wear red shirts. The real name is elusive. Lek & Rut? R and L? Doesn't matter. This sidewalk seafood grill with its metal tables and plastic stools is right across the side street from its rival, "the green seafood restaurant," T & K Seafood
. A bounty of fresh seafood is grilled up with some fantastic Chinese and Thai influenced flavors. Flip a coin here; both are great.
