This restaurant is not worthy of being called a restaurant. The food was not fresh, the service was appalling and the management was antagonistic. Never go here- it even smells. A terrible experience!

Befriended by a 'very nice' taxi driver and after creating a nice rapport had the cheek to drop us here. We instantly knew something was up with the place but its amazing the amount of trust you put in a strangers lie. Egg fried rice...More

This place was around the corner from our hotel. To our luck we read the reviews before we could go there. Next door is a Japanese restaurant. Could be in on the scam too.

I couldn't agree with you more. It's my matter to have such incident but I do sincerely hope that it would not inflict more harm to other kind and innocent people. Just keep sharing this news for the benefits of all. Thanks.

Description
Somboondee Seafood is a RIP OFF. We were directed there by a "helpful" lady on the street who helped to "negotiate" a very cheap Tuk Tuk ride to the restaurant. The food in the restaurant is Sub Par for Thai standard. I can get better quality and taste in any street corner of Bangkok. The service is non-existent. We ordered 5 dishes (1 sliced fish tomyam soup, 1 vegetable, 1 stir-fried chicken with no taste, 1 small crab, 1 squid) and the bill came to 4400 Baht!
