Jae Dum Restaurant @ Rangsit Klong 10, Pathumthani

Cuisine: Thai
Price: THB650 per person without alcohol (what I paid for)
Visited: 15 May 2011
Food: 6/10
Atmosphere: 3/10
Value for money: 6/10
Services: 4/10

Jae Dum Restaurant - เจ๊ดำโภชนา @ Rangsit Klong 10 has been operating for more than 30 years with its well-known quality of river prawn. The restaurant serves typical Thai food. Coming here can be hassle as you can only drive here and it is ~ 40 km away from centre of Bangkok. Hence, no car no prawn. Good thing is it is pretty easy to find, the restaurant is right next to Rangsit Klong 10 branch of SCB.  One more thing to bear in mind is that Jae Dum does not take reservation though it operates 365 days a year. Thus, be sure to come early to avoid traffic.

Anyone visiting Jae Dum, both Thai and foreigner, will have to order the well-known Grilled River Prawn - กุ้งแม่น้ำเผา. One river prawn here can weigh up to 0.4 kg: large and fresh. Prawn was grilled just perfect and cut in half. Fatty part in the head of prawn can be mixed with boiled rice to give amazing taste (9/10).
Steamed Sea Crab - ปูทะเลนึ่ง was large in size with firm meat. Great one but not so amazing (6/10).

Next was Boiled Redtail Catfish - ปลาคังลวก. Fillet of fish was really fresh with tender meat. Skin was spongy. May not be so fancy but really good (7/10).
Stir-fried Crab Meat with Black Pepper - เนื้อปูผัดพริกไทยดำ was not something spectacular but large portion. Flavour was rather light, not so spicy (6/10).

Fin of Featherback in Spicy Curry - ฉู่ฉี่เชิงปลากราย was then followed. This dish was fantastic. Authentic Thai food with rich flavour of curry and spiciness to combined with tenderness of fish meat around fin part (8/10).
The other fish dish was Steamed Belly of Snapper with Soy Sauce - พุงปลากระพงนึ่งซีอิ๊ว. A mild flavour Chinese dish with large pieces of snapper steamed in soy sauce. Let down by the quality of meat, big snapper always comes with meat that is not so tender (6/10). But what do I know? Perhaps not always.

Tom Yum Boeseman Croaker - ต้มยำปลาม้า and Prawn Yellow Curry - แกงส้มกุ้งแชบ๊วยผักรวม were not my favourite here. Not so hot and spicy but also not so savoury (5/10).

Oyster Omelette - ไข่เจียวหอยนางรม was a disappointment. Too oily from my perspective otherwise delightful (4/10).

For vegetable dishes, we managed to have Stir-fried Lotus Stem with Prawn - สายบัวผัดกุ้ง, which was nice and large prawn (7/10). The other one was Stir-fried Gourd Leaf with Oyster Sauce - ยอดมะระผัดน้ำมันหอย. This one was not so good, just similar to other places. Too light in flavour (4/10).

Very nice place it is for Grilled River Prawn: Jae Dum could be one of the best place for river prawn in Thailand. To judge for its value, do take into account of travelling too as it is really far and consumes time. Nevertheless, it is still one of the place that should be visited for tasting.
