Chaiyo Seafood (ไชโยซฟด)



Chaiyo Seafood is a local restaurant for us because we live maybe 15 minutes away.

This does mean that the clientele is predominantly Thai but over the Festive Season there has been an increase in tourists arriving. The attraction of Chaiyo Seafood starts immediately when you are in the carpark - there are two entrances.


One entrance is over a small wooden bridge which takes you to the first part of the restaurant it is well lit. The second entrance is more formal and takes you into an open area which is certainly interesting. The restaurant is on the edge of the river and the mangrove swamp - i understand that it is open for lunch but I have never visited this.


Chinese / Thai figurines


Wooden large turtles



This leads to a restaurant and then there is a second restaurant which is reached by wooden steps going down and seems to be floating and there are the pens where they keep the fresh fish.


The food was wonderful - in fact we had three sets of this delicious bua tod.





The tom yam goong was certainly spicy and the deep fried fish with chilli sauce was fabulous...



They even served us 'shaved ice' - a traditional Thai desert.

We would certainly visit here again - the level of English was not wonderful but it didn't matter.
