Are you up for a wild and unforgettable escapade that Bangkok has in store for you? Staneemehoi, or Shell Station in English, isn't your typical seafood joint; it stands out as one of the quirkiest dining destinations in Bangkok.
Tucked away in the vibrant Hua Mumm night market in Lat Phrao, this eatery takes your seafood dining experience to a whole new level. Despite its location being slightly away from the city centre, Staneemehoi boasts nightly queues that start forming as early as 6 PM and stretch into the midnight hours.
This restaurant is all about bringing a night of cheeky fun with a staff of muscular gentlemen donned in feminine lingerie — definitely no room for some fragile sense of humour. They're not just serving up dishes; they're putting on a show that'll have you laughing and cheering.
Enter the “waiting routine” — a wild mix of screaming, moaning, and some hilarious sexy moves to keep you entertained while your grub is getting ready. Don’t be surprised when the staff employs a little friendly touch, like a hand on the shoulder for the ladies and some playful banter for the guys, because that’s part of their “service.”
With the kind of performance they're putting on, this establishment is recommended exclusively for visitors aged 18 and above, ensuring that the experience remains tailored to mature diners
How to Get There
For those seeking convenient transportation options to reach Staneemehoi, you may consider hopping on buses with routes 1-32E, 156, and 178. Alternatively, the nearest transit station is Chuan Chuen (inbound), located merely 351 metres away, making it a brisk and easily accessible five-minute walk.
Let’s talk about the delectable stuff! The food at Staneemehoi is a flavour explosion but won’t break the bank, with dishes ranging from THB100-THB300.
Seafood enthusiasts are in for a treat, with offerings like oysters, scallops, and briny clams all on the menu. For those craving rice dishes, indulge in crab fried rice or shrimp fried rice that both will satisfy your hunger.
