The Fishmarket restaurant belongs to the Inter Continental hotel, so it can serve alcoholic beverages. You choose the items you want to have, the waitress picks those into a plastic bag and takes those to the chef for the meal. When there is a group of people choosing the food at the same time, you've better remember, what you pick!... More

I had been before a couple of years ago at lunch on business and it was really good. What a disappointment when I returned with my family. To start with Restaurant is now dated and could do with a refurb. We were met warmly enough but drinks took an age and for some reason arrived in three well separated stages... More

A wet fish restaurant with a twist all the food is prepared 'Thai' style,. Not what we expected so a bit disappointed, however if its what you went for I'm sure its great.

Ambience is very simple, nice but not refined. Concept is the following: you select the type of fish/rice/noodles/vegetable you would like to have, also the way you prefer everything to be cooked, and then they serve you the choosen dishes, with a Thai style accent. Food quality is very good. Service is also good. Prices about 200 Dhirams per person.... More

They sell in grams but have NO scales thus they don't show you how much you actually ordered. 2. Prices are X3 of... More
