I should have trusted the negative reviews here but I am a big seafood lover so I had to check it out. They have some very nice young ladies to help you with the shopping in the market area. I got a live grouper, cockles, oysters, and choi sum and mushrooms. The grouper I had steamed Chinese style. The oysters I ate raw. I tried to keep it on the cheap side but with the cooking fee it came out to be more than I was expecting. I had a much better meal for a lot cheaper at Somboon Seafood which I would highly recommend over this place. Also I thought Laguna Seafood was better too. Now for the horrible part... I got sick about twenty minutes after eating and had severe diarrhea that lasted 24 hours. It was definitely diarrhetic shellfish poisoning. I was bedridden for 24 hours except when I was on the toilet (a lot) and everything I tried to eat turned to liquid. I was afraid I'd miss my flight home. I got better although I was very dehydrated from it and it made the long flight home difficult. I suspect it was the oysters. Before this I had eaten oysters, cockles, and clams without a problem. I blame myself for taking the risk more than I do the restaurant. I would say never eat oysters in Thailand. Had I not gotten sick I might have given it a 3/5.
