Number One Seafood in Patong

Local Thai and Seafood Court near Bangla Road

Number One Seafood is now permanently closed.

Number One Seafood in Patong is actually a collection of seafood stalls and restaurants rather than one single establishment. Somewhat resembling a food court, it features numbered restaurants serving super-fresh Thai seafood, counting from the eponymous “Number One Seafood” up to “Number 9 Thai Food”, with Chiangrai Seafood acting as an unofficial ‘Number 10’.

Spread out under a metal roofs on either side of an uncovered central lane, the Number One Seafood complex can be reached either from Rat-U-Thit Road, just before the entrance to Bangla Road (through Parrot Bar), or from Bangla Road itself, at the end of Soi Vegas or Soi Tiger. You will find a small coffee shop and a Thai noodle stand in the food court-style area, but the vast majority of the stalls and restaurants specialise in seafood.

You can be absolutely assured of the freshness of the seafood because that which you can’t find still swimming around is packed in ice. This includes red snapper, lobster, prawns, crabs, mussels and cockles. Chiangrai Seafood (an ironic name, perhaps, since Chiangrai is northernmost province of Thailand and therefore the furthest from the sea!) offers a selection of western dishes, including steak, spaghetti, sandwiches and burgers, and many of the other restaurants have international options such as lobster thermidor available. The hot favourites, however, are the Thai food preparations.

Prices are universally low among all of the restaurants in the Number One Seafood Patong complex, with Phad Thai or fried rice with seafood costing just 80 baht. Many of the larger dishes – particularly crab and lobster – are charged by the kilogram. Must-try choices include the spicy Tom Yum Goong, the tasty Thai-style steamed fish and the hot fried crab in yellow curry.

Very popular with tourists and even attracting some locals, Number One Seafood Patong provides a quiet break from the hectic hedonism of Bangla Road, along with great Thai cuisine at the typical local price and quality. The facilities may be simple, but they are adequate, comfortable and, importantly, clean.
