That’s one of the restaurant I visited in my past Bangkok trip. Laemgate is on my check list which I must go! It attracts me as it is ALL YOU CAN EAT for SEAFOOD!!
Laemgate have 2 branches in Bangkok, one in Phaholyothin11 and the other in Ari 4. How to go? The Ari branch is very close to BTS Ari Station exit 3, it takes you about 10 mins walk from the station OR if you decided to go after your plan to Chatuchak Market, then I would suggest you to go to Phaholyothin11 by Duk Duk. It takes approximately 15 mins Phaholyothin11 and is situated in between Ari station and Saphan Khwai Station.
We went to Ari 4 branch and the restaurant is REALLY REALLY hard to see. We have passed by several times in the same ari just walking back and forth!! We for sure we didn’t go to the wrong Soi (street) and the GPS did showed that we already there! As it was situated inside the gate and what you can see is the view below when you pass by. Lamgate was hidden at the dead end of the road. So that’s explain the reason why we passed by so many times!
There was a piano at the front door with the royal blue paint on wall, also some old books on shelf which have the european looks & feel. The waitress was so nice and allow us to get into the restaurant much earlier than the booking time because of the heavy rain that night. Which is much appreciated!
