    The best food I had in Bangkok (and I ate at Gaggan). The reviews are a little mixed because it's pricey for street food, but given the quality & quantity it's with it.

    Indeed a destination.Don't be wary if it's half empty compared to the neighboring Thip Samai Padthai's long queue. Quality here is top notch and u pay for it.Pad kee mao (drunken kwaytiao) is amazing!

    Prices are REALLY expensive for Thai street food but I can confirm the food is quite good (400 TBH for dish minimum). Try the Pad Khee Mao and the Pad See Ew, this is Bangkok and you deserve it!

    You haven't tasted Bangkok Cuisine if you haven't tried Jay Fai's Restaurant!We got the Seafood Tom Yum (medium spiced) & the Michelin Star Crab Omelet (boy was it juicy & soft)!10/10!

    Crab omelette , curry crab and drunken noodle is top notch. I would skip the tom yam ( too sour )and the veggie ( too salty) seafood fried rice is pretty good. All seafood served here are awesome

    Fantastic noodles, but (not kidding) 10x as expensive as any other hawker you will find in Bangkok. Try them once ;-)

    Jay Fai deserves her star. She cooks every single dish individually by herself. I feel food tastes even better now. Quality is excellent and for the ingredients alone this is great value for money.

    Lives up to the hype, especially the crab omelet. We luckily tried hard for a reservation and got one, but arriving early is key if you don’t have one.

    Thr Omelet and Crab Fried Rice, in my opinion, is that the omelet is really delicious and there is no comparison. The style for making the omelet is also unique.

    get your name on the list, then head to Thip Samai, Jedi Cafe or even get a massage while you wait (it's going to be awhile...)

    One MICHELIN Star. The local legend that is Jay Fai continues what her father started 70 years ago and makes crab omelettes, crab curries and dry congee.

    Promise to self: I must eat here at least once whenever I visit Bangkok. It's the most expensive hawker in Thailand but I've never had so much crab in an omelette ever! 800 baht for small serving.

    Always excited to eat here. The owner is fiery and so are her dishes cooked over charcoal. Bring you wallet though, it may be Bangkok's most expensive street food. Popular for its jumbo seafood!

    Try the fried crab omelette. Bursting with delicious crab filling and the ends of the omelette are lovely and crispy.

    You should order crab omelet, served as a large roll filled with fresh, white crab meat. (ไข่เจียวปู)

    Local food prepared by a woman in goggles! Good Pad thai, dont expect glamour and people watching, very local and low key.

    I had Sticky noodles. Very good food indeed but quite expensive. No soap in the toilet bothered me a little for that price.

    Stir-fried rice noodle with roasted chili paste and sweet basil pepper with shrimp or seafood.

    Actually on Maha Chai road. THE most amazing Thai food that I've ever eaten. Wonton soup, Crab Omelet, Crab Curry and some Prawn dish with crab, bell pepper and coconut shoots are my favorite.

    Leaving ridiculosly expensive price, yet below average taste. Even with larger size of seafood, still not giving any sense of value of money. Not worth any penny. No one I know tries the second time.

    This place to a complete Joke. 1000 baht for a soup anyone?! Avoid at all costs. Clearly having a few food vloggers visiting has completely gone to the owner's head.
