It's definitely a "must go" restaurant in Bangkok, I always saved time for this restaurant in each of my business trip to Bangkok. Curry crab is the best, for one to two people, mid size will be enough, I always ordered tom yum gong to...More

I really don’t like to review bad to a particular restaurant. However, I really can’t wait to do so to Somboon seafood. It was famous in Bangkok but I found this restaurant is actually not as famous as they should be. The reasons are: 1)...More

1人だと予約は不要と言われて直接レストランへ行きました。 お一人様用にサイズもトムヤムクンはS・M・Lとあり、カレーもS・Mとありました。それぞれ小さな物を選びましたがやはり量が多くて食べわきれませんでした。 カレーは皆さんがおっしゃる通り辛さはなく、やさしいお味。けれどずっとそれだけ食べていると脂っこくて飽きてきます。トムヤムクンは日本人向けのお味というより現地向けなのかも。ライムの味がメインとなってしまっていました。 地物のレストランにしては高級だと思います。 It was a nice restaurant. There was size for small group . Curry was not so spicy and kindly taste. I liked it but a bit oily. Tom Yum soup was strongly lime taste. I recommend but there is more cheap...More

We have been visiting this particular branch of Somboon for over ten years. Still think this one is the best. The high quality of the cooking and friendly service offset the crowded and noisy atmosphere. Our favorite: curry mud crab, river prawns in vermicelli, grilled...More

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop
