Don't include alcohol in your calculations.

Dining out +/- 1000 Thb, alcohol included. 

Usually drink prices exceed the food price.

I couldn't have been more clear about that.

I don't consider a dining out without alcohol. 

But OK 350-400 food, rest alcohol.

Interesting question.

I know that would be another survey but it's obviously also a question how often you do that.

 

I.e. sometime I eat Nea Yang (BBQ beef) with sticky rice on the street for 60+10B per person. It tasted good and I really like it.

But then there are the days when I enjoy the big 5-star buffet lunch or dinner.

I like both and obviously some more options.

 

And recently, with all the prices in the bars going up, I sometime think about the value. 2 lady drinks for a girl and 2 drinks for me is these days is often somewhere between 800-1,000B. I can get a real nice dinner for that money...

Sorry, being Belgian I made a mistake in the interpretation of "Dining Out". 

For us "Dining Out" is not really about eating out of one's house. 

Many have a sandwich or similar, everyday at lunch time, out.

Does the office canteen count as "dining out"? 

A whole 35 Baht for rice and two sides (and it often lives down to the price).

Maybe. But you consider that expensive?

Nah, I'm a 500 Baht eat out man usually, but the canteen gets my business more often.

Yeah, well the concept here is at what level people consider the meal expensive (excluding alcohol).

On average my wife and I spend about 300bht for a nice Thai style dinner for 2. I say average. Now to be clear, we seldom ever eat western foods. that can triple or quadruple a bill. 

 

In fact the other night with customers (9 of us) the bill was 28,238 bht for Thai Western Fusion food in BKK. Personally to me the food was crap. But then again I do not like Foo Foo fusion food.

I see I am not the only one to no be sure 100% of the definition to give to "dinning out" :ermm:

Cambridge Dictionary says: "to go to a restaurant to eat your evening meal"

 

I never cook in my apartment, so I "dine out" nearly every night by eating at one of small restaurants near my condo, and in such case 100 baht is already way too much, in average :ermm:

Even more confusing for those of us from Northern England. We eat dinner at noon, the main meal of the day. Tea is eaten in the evening and is a much lighter meal.

 

Can I have clarification as I may want to change my vote.
