Pen Review

This spacious restaurant has little in the way of atmosphere, but it's where the true seafood aficionados go to splurge. Though it's expensive by Thai restaurant standards, it's still a bargain compared to most hotel restaurants. Many dishes are nearly impossible to find outside Thailand: deep-fried parrot fish with shallots, enormous charcoal-grilled river prawns, Chinese-style mantis prawns, delectable mud crabs, and sliced green mango in tamarind sauce. Even though it's a little out of the way in Yannawa, this temple to seafood is not to be missed.

    Superb Seafood! (But NOT on the River!)

    Although a bit off the beaten track, Pen is worth the taxi ride. The decor strives for glitz and glamour but the real dazzle is on the plate. I found staff to be solicitous of this language-impaired tourist! Picture menu makes ordering easy. Grilled prawns and a platter of fried morning glory greens are a good place to begin.
