Thanks to the TA rave reviews we tried this out @ 7PM after the Big Buddha and it wasn't crowded but by the time we left it was almost full. We definitely wanted seafood and since the menu didn't list prices for the lobster, prawns, etc.. we asked how much per kilo. We were looking over the menu and a... More

Well worth a visit! Mr Kwong is larger than life, the seafood is fresh and you choose your own and pay by weight. Off the main drag a bit but it was busy the night we were there. Great value for money!

Went here by accident and it was the best mistake. The owner was very happy and friendly, quick service and cheap prices. Food came quick and was very tasty. Will be back to try more seafood!!!

Had the tiger prawns in garlic and black pepper sauce. I can honestly say this is one of the best prawn dishes I have ever eaten. I highly recommend this restaurant and their seafood. Everything was fresh and delicious.

I've been craving oysters so I searched out some reviews of places around to go get some. Here the seafood is on display for you to pick what you want. Oysters are nice, big ones 50baht each. We got a platter of a dozen and they gave us sauces on the side. I mean I've never had an oyster I... More

Sea food is not fresh. We also ordered vegetable stir fry with beef, but they gave us pork instead. My boyfriend pointed out it was not beef, the waiter insisted it was beef. We are quite sure we know what pork taste like.

It's a great restaurant, I don't eat seafood but my partner does and loved his whole snapper in Thai spices and my meal (Chinese Kale with Pork, then Mango with Sticky Rice) was delicious!!
