we found this place by accident, we were walking in the night market and stumbled upon this place. we were so bowled over by the food, we went again and then again. the freshly cooked squid is so delicious, the food is fresh and the spices are just right. the service is simple and good and its definitely a lot of value for your money

always fresh fish - speedy if somewhat chaotic service.
catfish with red-curry sauce quite unusual but really good.
shrimnp tempura ( perhaps a little Japanese influence)
spinach with garlic - ideal as a green.
some good old-fashioned fried rice with egg.

some fresh coconuts and Thai beer made an interesting contrast and completed the meal.

This place claims to have the best seafood in Thailand.

We decided to test this hypothesis one evening after a weary traipse around the Night Bazaar (equally overhyped methinks).

Well, why not? The place was full and the vast array of seafood colourfully arranged on ice was impressive… and who could doubt their boast.

I should have visited the toilet (a sordid affair tucked away behind the till). That would have settled it, but I didn’t (until later) and we took a table and ordered the grilled seafood platter, morning glory and two beers. The vegetable and drinks were good, the seafood wasn’t. It was tasteless and far from fresh. The shellfish were chewy and the prawns were old and overcooked. The fish, although unidentifiable, was the best thing on the platter though having seen the Ping River close up I rather hoped it hadn’t come from its waters.

The best seafood in Thailand Puke Puke is not (this distinction goes to the Chedi in Phuket, at least in my limited experience of the country).

I can’t remember exactly what this mediocre meal cost, but my advice would be to take your Bahts and go elsewhere.

My husband has been travelling to Thailand on business and we decided to try out Ping Ping, which we found when we were visiting the Chiang Mai Night Market. You order your food from the fresh seafood displayed at the entrance of Ping Ping, then you tell them how you want to have your seafood cooked. We decided to have it grilled and it was very delicious. The big shrimps were not only delicious but cheap.
