Not sure if I know them all but if I missed any others can pipe in. 

 

Thank you for posting on topic. 

 

Grab 

 

Food panda 

 

Line used by some places for direct contact 

 

Lineman

 

Fb messenger used by some places for direct contact 

 

Wongnai

 

Hungry now New one

 

Some places have their own direct order online apps such as Frasers Jomtien 

 

What do you order with Lineman ?

And can you confirm that Grab is always the best choice ? or they are similar ?

Is it better to choose a restaurant near where you want the food delivered ?

I posted on the other thread (about businesses opening and closing) a few weeks ago about the Pulcinella Italian Risto-Pub that has opened in the former Punch & Judy premises on Soi 17 (Soi Region

Yesterday, went to Welcome Inn on Darkside for Sunday Roast. Had the mixed meat for 260B. Outstanding value and enjoyable meal, could not fault it. Welcome Inn has A/C and had about 6 or 7 punter

You have mentioned this in other posts repeatedly???? I know a good short time hotel.

I haven't used Lineman yet but I did install it. 

I use Grab. 

They sucked me in with their promotions like 100 baht off but recently they stopped doing that for obvious reasons. 

I can't say which is best. 

The price structures vary sometimes alot. Also the delivery fees. 

I compared a restaurant yesterday on Grab vs. Panda and panda was cheaper but you can't generalize for all restaurants. 

Also of course the services don't have all of the same restaurant so that would obviously influence choice if one service has a favorite place. 

Ordering close like anything is luck of the draw. I'd say the majority of times that means getting fresher foods but I've also experienced major f ups with close orders. Like a driver picking up orders for multiple customers making him late or the common thing of the driver going to the wrong place. You've heard the stereotype of Thais not being able to read maps. 

 

Anyway on rating the drivers 1 to 5 I have noticed that all the drivers have a rating of either 5 or the lowest I have seen is 4.8.

 

Which means if you give them a 1 you might consider buying a gun for self defense. 

 

Obviously they aren't always giving 5 service but I suggest giving the 5 for anything as high as 3 and they are really bad which for me is like 10 percent of the time not rating at all. 

 

This is their livelihood after all. I assume they lose their jobs if the number gets too low. 

 

One time I gave a really rude driver a 4 and later he got another order from me and remembered and the look he gave me could kill. 

 

Not worth that aggravation.

Have had several take aways from Robin Hood Tavern over the past few weeks, just ring in the order and go collect. Looks like they use Grab, as I always see some Grab guys milling about outside.

RHT do many different weekly/daily specials, as well as a decent regular menu. Find their western food one of the best around. No issues with ordering.

Had cod and chips yesterday,  love those homemade hand cut chips, fish was good and their tartar sauce outstanding, good value on Friday special at 249B.

They have some good food but my impression is that their prices on Grab are very inflated, and thus I refuse to order from them on Grab. Also their specials are never listed on Grab.

I doubt it, people go to restaurants to socialize and for the atmosphere. The whole package really. Maybe fewer restaurants in the beginning, then back to normal after a while. 

Sure, but many restaurants are here for tourists, not the expats.  The tourists will not be back any time soon, so I am wondering if some of the restaurants will downsize, and make what they are doing now their business model, until the tourists start coming back.

I think even before this there was already a strong global trend towards more delivery food. A part of this has been the emergence of delivery only kitchens which can compete much better than regular restaurants because of much lower overhead. So yes I think it's obvious that that trend will remain post virus stronger than ever, but that doesn't mean sit down restaurants will go away either.

I agree.  At the end of all of this, it will be interesting to see which restaurants will open back up, and their business model.

That does look good, which pizza did you have, No 148??

Did like Punch and Judy for their steak pie, and their Sunday roast a few years back was very good, suspect the police activity with road checks was final nail in P & J coffin.

Harry Bar soi bukhao.

 

It is not a bar though.

If coming from pattaya tai end it is shortly after the right hand bend and located on the right, pic. of the Eiffel Tower outside.

 

They are open for takeaway doing pizza slices ( square actually) and a very large range of pastries.

I have not actually been there but have sampled their wares ( couple of my friends in naklua like long walks and pass by it some days buying a bit  and give me some .I am staying strictly within naklua )

 

So the pizz square, think only 1 type, tomoto.meat topping, cheese of course.

Within the genre of pizza slices I consider it above  average although my preference is for traditional Italian style thin crust pizza .

 

Very latge range of pastries, e.g cinnamon Danish, Cherry pastry, apple  croisants etc.

Also some sandwiches ( not tried )

 

I did not want to ask the price but did so..

Pizza either 20 or 30 baht.

Pastries 20 baht!  Cheapest I have ever heard of ( bar 7/11 etc but talking about a totally different quality level )

 

They taste nice, maybe slightly small but excellent values.

 

I cannot really see how they are making a profit but perhaps they are locked in to a lease with no rent relief, making the best of a bad situation.

 

Kudos from me.  I hope they remain in business for a long time.

 

A thumbs up from me.

Well worth a try if you are in to what they are selling.

Had an outstanding take away meal from Robin Hood Tavern a few nights ago. Just rand in the order, was told to come to collect in 20min. No hassle.

Ordered the chicken cordon beau, with homemade chips and steamed veg, and also some mushroom sauce.

Just about able to finish the meal. could not fault anything about the meal and reasonably priced at 265B.

Highly recommend.
