When in Chinatown, Bangkok, Go for T & K Seafood!

T & K Seafood Seafood, anyone? 

Yey! We’re on our way!

T & K Seafood Seafood? Have you heard of this restaurant? I haven’t fairly heard of T&K Seafood until my boyfriend Chris introduced it to me. It seemed like Bangkok is his backyard! Yay! Kidding aside.

So when we’re together in Bangkok during our trips, he took me to one of his favorite places to have yummy seafood for dinner!

T & K Seafood restaurant won’t serve you with a fancy plate, utensils or chairs and tables. Although I was already aware of it, I didn’t exactly anticipate that it’s  rather on the highway street where cars are actually passing by.

So upon reaching the place, I couldn’t help but notice scores of people already enjoying their seafood meal and some behind us queueing. Then I thought, they must serve really finger licking foods.

First of all, you are not being treated like a king and queen, you have to queue together with the other customers and wait for your number to be called that will be given by T&K Seafood staff, No, it’s not electronic, we were just given a small piece of paper with a number on it.

T&K Seafood staff will take the order, write it down on a sheet of paper, in Thai so that it will be ready as soon as we have available seats.

First of all, if you hate queueing like me, don’t fret, won’t take you long contrary to what I always believed in. Good thing this time it was kind of different, although the place is noticeably crowded, it only allowed us to wait for a couple of minutes.

 

T & K Seafood isn’t the only food restaurant on the premises. There are also other varieties of food shops like Chinese and Thai and of course, seafood restaurants though, T & K Seafood had numerous customers patiently queueing like us!

To begin with, we had spicy squid salad. I’m telling you it’s mighty spicy! But if you love spicy foods, you’d love this, too!

It began to rain that night while we were having our meal. Nonetheless, we were not soaked, T & K had provided covers rain shower cover so we just enjoyed our food and beer.

Did you ask how much? Well, it’s pretty affordable. Ranging from 100 baht ( $3) and up depends on what plate of seafood you’re ordering. They have heaps of choices of seafood to choose from!

One of the best menus, grilled big size shrimps. It’s 300 baht.

 

Plus, we ordered more of these mouth-watering plate of seafood that surely did make us drool in an instant!

Of course, if there’s seafood, there’s beer! Chang is known as of the top bestseller beers in Thailand.

Actually, there’s one more that we ordered. Unfortunately, I missed that photo, seafood fried rice was one of our menus.

 

August seems to be a wet season in Thailand, while we were on Koh Chang island, it was pretty much the same. It occasionally rained cats and dogs!

And, a friendly tip, don’t forget to take photos in Chinatown! It’s dazzling at night!

We’re so happy we dined in at T & K seafood! So when in Bangkok, please do, try to have mouth-watering seafood here! Thanks to Chris! ♡

 

Updated: Upon coming back for the second time on October 1st, we figured out that they have an indoor venue, in fact up to the second floor so even though it’s crowded outside, it’s also nice to dine  indoors. 

 

Thanks for reading! ♡

    Great choice of diner! I personally don’t mind not dining in a fancy restaurant. Even street side diners like this would do as long as the food are tasty! I really like chinese food and definitely I’d be trying this if I am around the area.

    I love exploring street side food whenever i am in a new city. I have always known Bangkok as a delightful city for sea food lovers but your suggestions are well researched, thus, well taken.

    Well, I am a pure vegetarian. But from the menu I can tell there are indeed a lot of options for sea food lovers here. And there is so much to try.

    Waiting for your favourite food and standing in a queue is one of the most painful things that I have ever endured. The good part is that all that pain vanishes when you get your hand upon your dish. Patience pays..no

    The setting looks a lot like the Philippines! And the spicy squid salad made me drool! Hahaha! I’d definitely drop by this seafood haven when in Bangkok!

    Those big size grilled shrimps really looks appealing to my eyes. T & K Seafood should be the place to look for anytime in Chinatown, Bangkok. Thanks for sharing!

    I dont eat non-vegetarian, but I quite like your pictures in the night. These are well shot. I have a question for you. In South East Asia, where is the best china town food? I see quite a few of them in almost every city that I have been too in Melaka, KL, Singapore, Bangkok.

    hi Katrik! I think China town is pretty much the same! But I bet Bangkok is the top for me, so far.
