Food was great. Freshly caught fish was amazing As was the tom yum goong. Very tasty and service was ok.

The fish was fried, full of oil and overly done. The tom yam soup was too spicy even though we've asked it'll be only a little. In addition, the seafood in the soup was hard to chew, tasteless and seemed old.

Fresh fish, caught earlier in the day - shown to us before cooking. Simple seasoning so you can really taste the fish and served with sauces if you want to flavour it up more. Good value for quality and quantity. Definitely recommend

Although we are quite sure that the fish we saw on the tray (before cooking) was the same one which was served to us (which was slightly bigger...) and we ordered grilled fish and received a steamed fish - the food and especially the fish...More

Seafood by Pawn (formerly Laem Klong) Restaurant is a familiar restaurant located in Mae Haad Village on the island of Koh Tao. We have recently relocated to Green Mango Food Court in a brand new restaurant to meet the needs of our growing customer list. Our chef "MAMA" cooks traditional and original best Thai food and also Western food like "Spanish Omelette". At Seafood by Pawn you can enjoy the best fresh fish BBQ. We also rent kayaks for people who want something more than just food, the price for the kayak is only 200 bths per full day. We are located at the top of the 'up' road in Mae Haad and across the road behind Green Mango food court where there is off street parking. Please call us for further information or to make a booking.
