Sounds great. I am trying to convince some of my fellow wedding guests that we should make a stop there, but do you have any idea how we might contact the restaurant beforehand, perhaps getting the number from Ong? I'd hate to show up with a group only to find that they can't take us.

Thanks again.

I'll see what I can do to get a number for the restaurant. I also don't think they take reservations, but for a group they might.

My better half was able to find this for Ban Ong: 028892919. If you get there at 8PM on a weekend a table will be difficult to come across, otherwise you should be able to get something... depending upon the size of the group.

Thanks so much. I am finding inertia of the group hard to overcome so we may just head straight to Ratchaburi and the wedding, but if I'm in a smaller group on the way back to Bangkok, maybe we can stop in after the wedding (though what are the chances we'll want any food at all after a Thai wedding?).

In any case, it's now on my radar, and I have the number and directions. Thank you again!

Bankara Ramen

Saw this write up. I posted on the map at the position already listed, but which can't be found with map search for some reason.

Can someone help me with the name of this restaurant? I want to meet someone there and feel foolish not knowing the name.

It is on the east side of Narathiwat Rd approx at the Chong Nosi BTS station, from what I remember. Tables are set up inside and outside, some along a wall perpendicular to Narathiwat Rd. It's quite popular, very inexpensive (call it "organized street food") and I remember seeing a write-up in a few places about it, so I think it is well-known. I went there a year ago, but for the life of me, I cannot recall the name. Anyone?

Both, the W Bangkok (Sathorn Square), and the Ritz-Carlton, in addition to many other 5-star apartment buildings will be opening very soon right across the street from Lek's Seafood and I hope this place will linger ...

There is quite a large selection of seafood. Dozens of crabs, lobsters and shrimps to choose from, along with just about anything else you can think of. Save room for some oysters displayed at the end, tasty at 35 THB ea. One cool thing is that you have an assistant who walks with you, gathering up the things you want. S/he walks you through the selections, including vegetables and fruit. For two people I spent $60 USD. There are preparation/cooking charges, maybe 100 THB per dish, plus beer/wine. In total I think we spent $90 USD for two. An equivalent dinner in the U.S., if you could find it, would probably run ~ $150 USD. I've been told there are similar establishments in Bangkok, that might be a bit smaller and less expensive?
I actually was there in 2008. The place is something to be seen. Dinner for two for about $70 USD. Going back in 2012 with the Mrs and that's one place we will visit.^
