Yok Yor Marina Restaurant in Bangkok

Yok Yor Marina Restaurant – ห้องอาหารยกยอมารีน่า – in Bangkok was one of the restaurants where Kasma took her small-group tours to Thailand before she retired in 2020. It specializes in fresh seafood and we always had an excellent, tasty meal there. Yok Yor Marina is situated right on the Chao Phraya river. As you sit and eat you can watch the boats go by on the river. Although the restaurant isn’t fancy, the food was always tasty and good and there was usually a very nice cooling breeze coming in off the river. (See below for address.) There’s a second restaurant – Yok Yor Klongsan – nearby.

We also have a slide show of the food pictures at the bottom of the page.

The above left picture shows one of the tables at Yok Yor Marina; the interior is nothing fancy but comfortable. The other picture shows one of the many barges going past on the Chao Phraya river.

I’m going to mostly let the pictures of the dishes Kasma ordered speak for themselves. In a typical meal here she would order 6 dishes and rice to be eaten family style.

Duck Curry

Garlic Pepper Squid

Kasma almost always ordered the dish to the upper left – Roast Duck Curry. It’s a red curry with succulent duck as the meat. Quite nice. On the right we see Garlic-Peppered Squid with a dipping sauce. The squid was nicely cooked, meaning it’s tender and not too chewy. (It’s quite easy to overcook squid and turn it rubbery.)

Seafood Laab

Above left  we see a Seafood Laab (also transliterated as Larb), fresh, spicy (as a laab usually is) and crunchy from the toasted rice. Kasma always ordered one of a couple of crab dishes here, such as the one to the upper right.

Steamed Fish

Crab in Yellow Curry

Yok Yor Marina does a very good Steamed Fish, upper left. To be good, the fish must be very, very fresh indeed: this one was. The above right Crab in Yellow Curry was quite good. Lots of liberated (from the shell) crab meat in a yellow curry sauce; succulent and tasty.

Fried Fish with Green Mango

Kasma sometimes ordered the Fried Fish with Green Mango that is above left. Another frequent item on the table for our groups was the Northern Sour Pork Ribs on right; the tasty, fermented meat is served with a variety of accoutrements (the shallots, greens, peanuts, garlic, often chillies), which are popped in the mouth with a piece of the rib. Yummy.

The last meal we had there was in 2016 at which time it was still very tasty food. This past year (December 2019) we went past it while on a canal trip so it was still operating then.
