Hua Hin authorities swing into action after "crab" complaints at popular restaurant

The authorities in Hua Hin responded to complaints on social media that a leading seafood restaurant was ripping off its customers.

 

The customers at "Khaimuk Seafood 2" had ordered a crab dish known as "Kanchiang Poo".

 

Instead of what they expected they got some cheap small crabs cut into six pieces and had to pay an exorbitant 650 baht.

 

Deputy Prajuab Khiri Khan governor Phirom Ninthaya called a crisis meeting attended by local officials including police.

 

Phirom reported that the restaurant owner had admitted there was a problem.

 

They gave the excuse that the "Kanchiang Poo" was an old menu and they only had steamed crab now. 

 

They promised improvements. 

 

They were caught without a license - it had been applied for but had not in reality yet been issued. 

 

Phirom encouraged tourists and members of the general public to complain if they are not satisfied. 

 

The public could be assured that Hua Hin would act on all complaints.

Why would the restaurant after all not cheat customers ? Many tourists seem to get really stupid when on holiday, living under the illusion of an assumed wealth, plainly obtained by the difference of prices from their homelands and the currency exchange. The one-week millionaires as called....

I'm not so sure that factors in anymore. We are on the losing end of it and have been for almost 6 years now.

Millionaire? Now there's an antiquated, 20th Century term. Billionaire is the term these days.

The wife said they advertised 'large leg segments' (the part connected to the body only) for 650 THB but gave the customers whole crab instead.  Mrs. Connda, not being your typical Thai, would have raised the roof at the restaurant as opposed to posting on Facebook.  Do not get between Mrs. Connda and her crab - you'll lose a hand!!!

FYI, drive to Cha Am and the beach vendors sell whole crab for 300 THB per kilo.  Nicer beaches too imho.

Perfect case study on why you need your book proof-read by a farang before publishing it.  Easily remedied by changing "Poo" to "Puu".  Then you don't become the brunt of toilet humor.
