Went to Soei restaurant because a friend recommended it. They had a lot of choices but they seemed to be specialized in seafood. They had a written down menu and a menu with pictures and I decided to just point out at a picture because it looked super nice. It was fish with some extremely tasty sauce and rice. All of my friends were also happy with their dishes so I must recommend this place. Only downside was that the dishes were a bit small so it is maybe better to come with many people and just order a lot of food and share. We couldn't really do it because some didn't eat fish and some didn't eat shrimps, squid etc so we all just got our own dishes.

Recommended by Mark Wiens, we found a Thai food haven. We had a big breakfast but couldn't stop eating when we were there. The food was fresh, tasty and non compromising regarding foreigner's taste (no matter nationality). The way they handle the seafood is amazing. Authentic or not I dare not to say since I'm not Thai, but I've been to really local places with local people and Soei is to me authentic.

Do talk to the owners and staff, they are super nice.

Will definitely be back on my next trip to Bangkok.

Btw, the location on Google map is correct.

Like many others, we found this restaurant through Mark Weins enthusiastic review. It's moved from it's original location. It's tucked away a bit - but it's a pleasant 25 minute walk from Sanam Pao BTS station guided by google maps. There weren't many customers there on a Wednesday lunchtime but the staff are pleasant and helpful, and all the food was really good - including the soft shell crab curry. The bill was reasonable, and they couldn't have been nicer - even ordering a grab taxi with a pre-agreed price to take us to our next destination. Definitely worth the effort.

Food and travel blogger Mark Weins recommends this as one of the most authentic and best Thai restaurants in Bangkok. Based on that recommendation we went there for lunch. I can happily confirm that his recommendation is 100% accurate, and that my lunch at Soei was probably the best meal I’ve had while overseas. Started with the crispy fried mackerel heads and garlic, and then had crab fried rice and a whole sea bass topped with chunky cut red curry spices for the main. Nothing is short on flavour, and my mouth was zinging for 30 minutes after we left. Their menu is large and as a result difficult to decide on what to order, however, the staff are lovely and very patient. Soei is not the cheapest of restaurants, expect to pay around 1,200 THB for a meal for 2 including beers, but it is certainly worth it. I only wish I had time to visit a few more times before leaving Bangkok. Exceptional!!
