Cuisine of prosperity

Founded in Mahachai (Samut Sakhon) six decades ago, the renowned seafood eatery Kiang-uan Mahachai Seafood Restaurant somehow withdrew itself from the seaside province of Samut Sakhon and has been re-established in Bangkok. Today all Kiang-uan's branches still serve fresh catches and seafood sourced directly from Samut Sakhon (formerly Mahachai) that may dance on our table. Its fourth branch, the latest addition in the Kiang-uan's family, just opened at the newly opened Central Plaza Grand Rama 9.

Recently I visited her new branch at Central Plaza Grand Rama 9, though the seafood was very fresh, sadly they were spoiled on the chefs hand; perhaps the kitchen team needs more practice to make those quality ingredients dance with my taste buds.

Look forward to more good food here.

The dishes are kind of Thai/Chiu Chow fusion.

So was the food too salty or overcooked. It looks like it's a bit overcooked.

the food was not overcooked, except the sea bass; however, food was too much so-so and no culinary interest at all ..

this seafood restaurant from the west cannot beat the one from the east - Laem Charoen; and is below average when compare to Bangkok top seafood restaurants (though itself alone (food) is at average)

definitely will not be put in my dining list, unless we r at Central Grand Rama 9 (Grand? funny TH investors, this mall is called Grand??) and must eat seafood otherwise will die, then go to Kiang-uan again!

Yes we can tell from the photos that food is dry and overcooked.
