This is definitely a must try. Would recommend this dish if you are a crab meat lover. Patience is virtue though but it's all worth the wait. The taste is simply awesome!

With the famous Pad Thai Thip Samai just a few doors down from it, I confess we walked past Jae Fai because it was so quiet and unassuming-looking. At an early half 6 in the evening, the Pad Thai joint (very bright, very noisy, very...More

This is an old school place to eat in Bangkok. It is on the expensive side (very expensive for locals) but the food is very good. I would recommend the crab meat omelet and any other seafood dish that strikes your fancy. The owner cooks...More
