Khun Ying


Noble lobsters snobbish crabs

On Bangkok's bustling Ekamai Road, there is the decades old Khun Ying, serving seafood to the high-so(ciety) aunties and their families as well as the well paid expats. There are humors commenting that their service is sluggish and snobbish, but I found that it is attentive and enthusiastic, attached with their Siam smile throughout my dinner. Khun Ying's seafood is undoubtedly fresh and of good quality, thus they deserved us to dig into our pocket a bit deeper to summon for that.

Maybe just like the old Chinese saying - Big tree draws wind.

This looks like Saigon in New Territory, HK.

The place looks like the open garden area of Thung Kruen.

Did not see any lobster or crab here.

The sea bass looks quite hot...

Agreed that the fish looks quite hot, at 450 baht, must be a top quality one. Other dishes look nice too, the vegetables had big leaves, and convicted that they were crunchy. Actually you ordered all my favourites, but have you never invited me to eat at Khun Ying!!

yes, the sea bass was hot, and fresh, and taste good, and expensive (but worth it) ..
