What to say about Bangpae Seafood Restaurant? Fresh local seafood, preparing by experienced chef, its decor is hardly stands out but its surroundings are excellent. The dishes are served promptly and at very reasonable prices. What more could a hungry customer ask for?

Try their tom yam talay (hot-and-sour Thai seafood soup), deep-fried tempura shrimp, stir-fried vegetables with cashew nuts, fresh oysters with local herbs and deep-fried squid with garlic and pepper. Also, their steamed and broiled seafood dishes with Thai herbs are delicious.

What not to miss about eating seafood in Thailand is nam jim or Thai spicy seafood sauce. It’s made from garlic, green chillies and a little bit of fish sauce, lime juice and sugar. The taste is a mixture of spicy, sour and a little bit sweet. You can ask for the ‘mai pet maak’ (not too spicy) version and they will tone it down for you. The problem is once you get used to the sauce, it’ll be hard to enjoy seafood, especially the BBQ items without it. So be aware!

This seaside restaurant has a spectacular location with a small beach for kids to run around on or to stroll up and down before or after a meal. There’s a lovely backdrop of mangroves, too.

The best time to go is at lunchtime as the mosquitoes are a lot less active then and you can just take in the ocean views. Try to remember to take along mosquito repellent but don’t panic if you forget; the restaurant has mosquito coils.
