The seafood’s freshness is impeccable, as you can see from the squid in lime and herbs—naturally sweet and accompanied with tangy lime sauce. While the grilled river big head prawns served with seafood sauce look like every other version of this simple barbeque dish, they too dazzle the palate. It’s actually not that easy getting the prawns cooked with smoky char-grilled notes while still keeping the flesh tender and juicy. Moreover, every single prawn we ordered came with abundant amounts of fat in the head. The deep-fried seabass in fish sauce is so very recommended. Tom Yum Goong with heavy red broth is totally intense and a must dish to order. Mango and sticky rice for dessert.
Ob Aroi’s consistency and reasonable prices warrant the trek to its far-flung location from the city center but fortunately the SC Park Hotel that we stayed in is just around the corner.
