Food at Ploensamut Restaurant
We went for lunch at Ploensamut and ordered the following which cost us a modest 390 THB:
- 1 x fresh coconut to drink
- 1 x large Leo beer
- 2 x plain rice
- 1 x omelette with crab meat
- 1 x fried mackerel in phad char sauce
We thought the food was very reasonably priced and that the dishes were competently cooked. The accolades and the expensive prices are for the more elaborate large seafood dishes on the menu, rather than our light lunch If you eat simply Ploensamut Restaurant is not that expensive although at the same time not fantastic. To get full value from Ploensamut Restaurant you need to go in a large group and be prepared to spend slightly more then you would at a more basic restaurant.
