Recommended Posts

just a  thought, owing to the stupid defamation laws here, one could come under this umbrella. if one dares to criticise, ok no names here goes, i have eaten at this place for years, cheap great food, new owners last week,(INDIAN)? we order fish chips peas oh and a (slice) meaning bread and butter, meal arrives the peas were solid, i kid you not, a small piece of curled up lettuce, i asked where was the bread and butter, , so 3 of us went without not even an explaination, meal advertised at 79 baht i was charged 150, no fans switched on, bloody hot,  no tvs on, friend arrives at 4-45 was told to wait outside until 5 pm. the place is in Jomtien.  i might give them a second chance and see what sunday lunch is like, was always fantastic under the old boss TONY

English cafe on Soi 5? Indian guy took it over more than a year ago now. Sits in a corner, at the bar chain smoking and glowering at both staff and customers. The breakfast there has gone from the best in Pattaya, if not Thailand to absolutely the worst. Used to be my go to place in Jomtien, wouldn't set foot in the place now.

 

The staff knew me as a regular, as i paid my bill, the last time I was there, I told the server that I wouldn't be returning, deliberately pointing at the fat tosser in the corner, who was watching. It was clear that she understood and agreed with me.

 

Anyway, thanks to another BM (cheers @Jingthing O' Delices wasn't for me but I love Tinnies) I have now descovered Tinnies. No looking back for me.

 

Oh, Simon's on Soi 5, catch me if you can 555

Can anyone explain how Indians are being able to take over and own businesses in Jomtien?

Same way as Brits, Germans, Italians, French, etc., used to do in those heady days when there was an actual 'high season' and a sizeable European demographic both visiting and living locally.

doesn't defamation mean false accusations?

 

more often than not people are scared to leave truthful reviews worrying about this law

Yes, but in Thailand I suspect that voicing a negative personal opinion against something or somebody is also taken as defamation, someone correct me if I'm wrong here.

Strictly speaking yes, but I doubt that it is a problem on an anonymous forum.

 

So which restaurant was the OP talking about?
