Been here twice.. food is still as good! Must order: Shark Fin, Bird Nest,Oyster Omelette (super generous with the oyster!) and Prawns. Price is reasonable too! Will definitely be back the next time I visit BKK!

We had our best meal here. Each of us ordered a 300 baht sharks fin which actually can be shared by 2. Had soya duck, fish, veg and prawns. Prawns was very fresh and tasty. A good place to eat if you are willing to spend a bit more and away from the crowded street. The seafood along the streets looks very tempting too but with a 4 year old with us, we chose to sit in aircon and dine in comfort. Bird's nest was also very goo, but many of us were too full to have it. Only ordered 1 bowl for sharing

I am a "No to Shark Fin" advocate and as such, I patronized Nam Sing only for the Bird Nest soup. For the uninitiated, bird nest are not the hay, leafy nest per se...but the spits of swallows...it undergoes tedious cleansing process to remove all impurities like feathers, dirt etc. In Ancient China, it's the food of royalty, with it's claimed benefit for smoother skin.
I would recommend the minimally the 300bht choice, as the 100bht is actually the lowest grade avail. The best is the 500bht "blood bird nest"... Have it cold or hot...you can't go wrong. Orders come with complimentary glass of chilled chrysanthemum drink,...nice.
Unless you know the preparation method...the unprepared the bird nest on sales are best left to those in the know and with right utensils. Prices are very reasonable.
