Restaurants In Ban Chang / Rayong

Recommended Posts

I tried the Pizza House takeaway next to Tesco last night and wasn't really impressed. I think the best places for pizza in the Chang are the Offshore and the Camel.

My favourite places for Thai food are; Food garden (opposite the PTT and it has a huge tree), Chai talay (overlooking the beach near the Pala Beach Cliff hotel. Black Canyon and MK Suki at Tesco are nice for a change. The Purimas hotel can be excellent but the quality is a bit hit and miss as I've had the occasional dodgy meal.

Like a number of people have mentioned its a shame that the Beach House Barbecue closed down. I believe its for sale if any entrepreneurial TV member wants to re-open it :o

Wife and I tried the pizza near Tesco last night and I will say for my taste it is better than Offshore and I never had the Camel pizza yet so no comparison there. They have good service and cold Tiger. But they could use an aircon to cool down the place,,,,very hot and humid last night.

So, first time there for me was acceptable. I'd say a 5 or 6 on the scale of 1-10. 10 being superb.

We ate here at Payoon Seafood in Nov 2006 when we were visiting the area. Had a very good seafood lunch. Would certainly go back

When you hit namrin beach turn left and the restaurant with " open " in English is the first one you come to which is well built and set back up the hill off beach road. Owned by a Thai traffic cop and his lovely family. Daughter in US uni son in English syatem both speak excellent English and have helped with a clear English menu.

Fantastic food, good service, genuine people.

This restaurant name is Baan Bai Boon and there's now a big neon Pepsi sign outside it at the roadside. It's not hard to miss anyway as it's the only place along there once you've turned left onto the beach road.

Ate there last night and the food was very good and a good price too (400 Baht for a meal for 2 with a large beer) :o . Could become a regular as it's the closest place to my house that's been mentioned.

We ate at Baan Bai Boon last night. It was a nice eating experience. As we all know the weather has been really rainy but we got there at sundown and saw a nice sunset from the beach area. Then my mate and wife arrived so we had a nice meal for 4 with beer and water. Food was prepared well and served hot by the owner and wife. Total for 4 was about 1300 bt. We ended up in quite a talk with the man. I say we as he talked most to the two wives. My firends wife has had a very, very bad cough for the last few weeks and the lady owner took pity on her and gave her some fresh herbal tea to help and then they all talked about some medicine to help her.

The man also discussed his re-build of the place as I was especially impressed by the roof and other parts of the place. He completely re-did the roof with all imported wood and roofing as he had big issues with corrosion of the old steel roof structure. Looks good and done well.

The bathrooms were very nice and clean,,,,,,,,,,not the normal Thai toilets.

All in all the place was worth the visit and I am sure we will return again and again.

On another note my friend said he and his wife went to the Bella Vista last week and he was not impressed at all. He said he would not go back unless forced to. The food was only so , so and the prices were too much. Atmosphere good and service OK. He did not like the menu selections.

I frequent "Had Saeng Chan Seafood". Obviously it is located on the Had Saeng Chan beach (it mean Moonlight beach in Thai), right in the middle of "Kantary Bay" and "PMY".

IMHO, the food is the best that you can get around here. Price is very resonable as it cater for local market. It is a favourite amoung Thais, especially local and those from Bangkok. Plenty of parking. Our children like the playground here.

The only problem is that they don't speak much English. However we always get what we want with the help of some photos menu and sign languages. You will not find much Farang here, just occasional one like us. However this place is swamp with Thais during weekends.

They also have a resort over looking a shimp farm. Nothing fancy, just basic nice clean rooms.

I have managed to googled a link here:

My company has all its parties there. It's ok. Nothing great. Very average Thai food. They do have a very nice karaoke system for parties with a great PA system. Odille's is still #1 in Muang Rayong. Personally, I'd rather go to Mocha on Thaksin Rd., where you can order both Thai and western food. The owner speaks good English.

The owner, a very charming middle age Thai woman, is also the Personnel Director of PTTChem. My company have a small business dealing with PTTChem, hence I got to know her and her resturant. Yes, they do have a few functions rooms and consistantly used for company functions and sometime tour groups.

I have already given her the feedback this morning so that resturant can be improves. She will look into it, but also did mention that company party business is very competitive, and budget is often very limited. Most company (especially tour group) go for the cheaper options of basic Thai seafood. Very few companies are willing to pay more for the better seafood options; like grill prawn and crab etc.

It is north of Sukhumvit, just east of Thaksin Road. Heading east on Sukhumvit, make a left turn at Soi 59. You will see a Susco filling station on your right, and a traffic circle to the north. Enter the traffic circle and take the north road (that's going the same direction from which you entered the traffic circle. Odille's is on your right, just as you exit the traffic circle. The traffic circle is at the intersection of Ratuhit and Choeng Nuen.

WikiMapia

Odille's serves imported beef from Australia and New Zealand, and sells the beef for retail as well. It is the most expensive restaurant in Rayong, so you might pay up to 500 baht for dinner. Inexpensive by Pattaya or Bangkok standards, but well beyond other Rayong restaurants.

Went to the Lor Gor restaurant during the week as it's famous for its somtam.

It's on the corner of the road that Baan Bai Boon is on. It looks nothing special from the road and it really isn't but they have 7 pages of somtam in their menu.

Seems they're famous for it.

Been there once awhile back but we had fish and something else. Must try the somtam.

We went to a place just inside the gate of the Sinthavee(spelling) housing viallage a few days ago. I have seen ads for the place out on the main soi 42 coming from Sukumvit.

I had a combo pizza and a few beers. The beer was good and cold!

The pizza was hot and tasteless.

I don't recommend it (pizza) at all and when we go back there I will try something else

We went to Baan Bai Boon on Saturday evening around 5pm. The food was once again superb. I had the deer this time and very impressed. However, the place was completely empty even at 6pm when we left. I can't understand this as the food is great, the prices very good and the location and cleanliness very good. We always go quite early in the evening but the last three times we have been the only people there. It would be a shame to see it close.
