Octo Seafood Bar
A seafood heavyweight arrives on Sukhumvit Soi 24.
Sukhumvit’s latest seafood specialist, Octo Seafood Bar, comes from the people behind seafood heavyweights Kodang Talay and Happy Fish.
The restaurant’s two-story venue spirits diners into something like a sunken ship. If the large porthole windows, wavey floor and undersea murals were not enough to convince you, lurking above the bar is a giant octopus.
Flavors span both Thai and European: crabs stir-fried with black peppercorn (B1,900/kg) sea bass with spinach, tomatoes, capers and lemon butter (B330). Much of the seafood gets brought in from the far-flung capitals of good lobster (Canada, B2,200/kg) and king crab (Alaska, B4,900/kg).
