“"Can be a romantic place to take a lady"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

Yok Yor restaurant situated beside Chao Phraya river opposite side from Saphan Taksin Pier.
Have visited 3 times always night time around 10 pm so cannot say what it like at earlier times during the day.
The restaurant has a very nice ambiance in the evening,the lighting of the place is just right to sit with your wife or girlfriend and have a romantic evening,,just talk or look at the river and watch the boats go by.
The waitresses are very nice and friendly and if you not sure what to order they will advise.
Anyway the food is good,not great,but enjoyable and the prices are reasonable.
The nights I went, there was a nice Thai lady singing and playing acoustic piano,she was very good and the music not too loud,like I say romantic............
Forgot to mention the area near the river is on wooden planking and you are outdoors,but if it start raining do not worry the staff will take care of you and move you indoors........
Take your lady and have a few romantic hours here.............

“Best value boat trip in BKK”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

This restaurant is situated at a fairly unique riverside location and also offers an 8pm dinner cruise at 160 BAHT A HEAD! The food is at normal local prices and very good quality, specialising in seafood. The view over the river is charming. Yok Yor Marina is not specifically aimed at tourists, though they are very welcome. Most customers are locals - a sure sign of a good venue! Staff don't speak English, but there's a photo menu and they'll try their best. Please be understanding. All the dishes are very good. There are stalls preparing Japanese and Isan dishes to order. The venue is covered open air with fans rather than air con. There's usually a river breeze so no mosquito problems. Flooring is rustic wooden directly over the river. Music can get a bit loud later on, though it's decent quality. Opening times are 11am to 1am, though it's very quiet during the day. Dress is informal - you'd feel silly sitting in a business suit! Well worth a visit. Call for the boat to fetch you from 6pm onwards. 028630565

“Nice location and okay food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

Got the boat across from here from the Sheraton. Location is great, right on the river. The staff were friendly and tried to be helpful within the menu. We had Sea Bass and they were okay. Wouldn't rush back.

“Better local thai cuisines available ...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

Had tried numerous local thai cuisine ... from roadside pushcarts to highend 5 stars hotels ...

"Yok Yor" is nothing close to taste buds for locals. Price is definitely higher than average restaurants. Perhaps cuisine were catered/bended towards acceptance by foreigners ...

Great ambience beside the river and some mosquitoes (little much we can do with outside sittings next to a river).

Service Staff had tried their best to facilitate ... some capable of communicating in english ....

One time experience is sufficient.

“Nice if it would have been without the music”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013 via mobile

We had a table on the top deck to ensure a good view. Before leaving food had to be ordered and served, since the kitchen is on shore. Fair enough. This does mean that you are more or less finished when the boat sets sail. No problem as long as the empty plates are being collected. That wasn't the case, so during the 2 or so hours our table was filled with empty plates.

The food itself was ok. Not bad not very good, just average. Nothing wrong with that.

After the first turning point, the entertainer started his entertainment. He apperently wasn't too good at English so he sung some English songs. Unfortunately he sung what he remembered being right. Funny. We had some bad luck that a few guests wanted to perform as well. I can't sing so I stay away from the microphone. It would have been better if they did the same. The lousy music killed the atmosphere and make me wanting to jump overboard.

All in all, I wouldn't go there again.
