Laem Cha-Roen Seafood, Bangkok…tasty and satisfying but not as good as Somboon Seafood

Every seafood classic is here. In the broadest terms, the food is very good rather than excellent, slightly too pricey, not as good value as Somboon Seafood – still the best seafood restaurant in the country. But should you be in CentralWorld, you really should pay a visit.

The food for the most part hard to fault, and the venue’s charming vibe makes it worthy of your time. But there are a few shortcomings – and at these prices, you have to be famous to get away with them.

The steamed sea bass with chili, garlic and lime sauce has fragrant and light flavours while the deep fried dry squid isn’t quite the real deal. However, the prawn salad with sweet lemon dressing in taro basket has an extra burst of flavours and the fried shrimp cake are delicious. The ever so famous tom yum goong here has all the tanginess and spiciness that defines Thai flavour.

It was tasty and satisfying but not as good as Somboon Seafood down the road. This is the true truth as  say it as it is…
