The Bamboo (on the beach and not to be confused with the "Romantic" Bamboo in the town) is a laid back sort of place , next to the equally laid back Bikini Bar.

What sets the Bamboo apart is that it pushes its seafood.

The street side display (like most in Lamai) of (yesterday's catch?) seafood on ice with various little bugs crawling over them, is not inspiring.

But go into the restaurant and there is a much better, and fresher looking, display of snapper, barracuda, prawns, mussels, lobster etc. right next to the cooking grille.

But that is still not what you want.

Get there early enough (maybe only in the off season?) and there are two small, oxygenated tanks with live lobster, crab and Moreton Bay bugs from which you can select your preferences. Nothing is fresher than live.

We had 4 x Moreton Bay bugs - probably the equivalent of a reasonable size lobster - and they were superb value for 500 Baht. Just be aware that you pay for, and get, the live seafood only. Extras are extra.

Highly recommended - if you can do it right, and get your seafood from the live tanks.

Otherwise just have a Thai meal, and enjoy the beach and the view...

My second home in Lamai. Every day there, at least once. Couple of new faces this year, and of course, as polite as everyone else. Old man know how to conduct it. Dinner is not just a dinner in Bamboo. it's a good life happening. I loved my breakfasts-plate of 4 fruits and a big vodka. Tom Yam is fantastic, but everything else is good too. The best of all is position and staff that works there, Hope I see you next year guys, as I did last three.
