Over the years, Lord Jim’s, with its great glass windows overlooking the Chao Phraya River, has always maintained quality cuisine and service. The restaurant now specializes in seafood, where you will find some of it displayed on ice as you enter, and this restaurant is also known for its outstanding preparations (a choice of three different styles) of foie gras. We started with oysters flown in from France, and grilled lobster. I finished with an amazingly fresh and delicious Black Halibut. In addition they also offer the following selections as well as many more for your dining pleasure:

Fresh White Crab Meat with Avocado
Rémoulade dressing and crisp lettuce leaves,
chilled avocado soup with lemon cream

Rock lobster, tiger prawns, selection of sushi and sashimi, fish tartar, fresh oysters, selected mollusks, crab claws, scallop ceviche, wild smoked salmon, Hiyashi Wakame salad (for Two Persons)
