The Hit And Run Restaurant "review" Thread

Recommended Posts

I quit trading with Starbucks about 5-7 years ago (for reasons unrelated to quality) but I imagine the same people that claim Starbucks coffee is the worst Thailand are probably the same people that claim McDonald's is the worst burger in Thailand.

 

Is there better coffee and better burgers in Thailand? Absolutely. But anyone claiming they are the worst clearly either doesn't get out much or is just blinded by bias. 

 

I'll have to try the 7-11 product, only coffee I've ever had there was the B10 red-cup instant....

Mc Donald burgers are ok because I will never pay 300 baht for any burger at any supposed great burger place. And now even McDonald is too expensive for what it is. Starbucks are cheaters from the start and only idiots would support them, I agree.

Try 711 coffee, but only take espresso to know the real taste, even if you had your own milk, its a lot better than choosing their latte or any other thing.

And what do you think about Kiss food ? I read many negatives here from supposed experts who cannot explain why they think that Thai food is better somewhere else. I do not eat Thai food anywhere as most chef think about themselves as cook artists when they actually know nothing. At Kiss they are not asked to know anything, they are just told to follow the same recipe that is written, and nobody is interested in their culinary art !

Actually a few of Sbucks food items are ok for a snack.  Some of the muffins are good.

The coffee I will say is the worst in Thailand for the price.

It is one thing for Thai girls a photo opportunity for Facebook holding up a Frappucino posting it makes them feel hiso.

I ordered an Americano and they dispensed premade from a metal spout not made fresh.  Then even added hot water to it.  So, cheap and lousy can't even make a fresh ground coffee?  Get a Cappucino literally 95% foam and a small shot at the bottom.  Paying their employees 1 buck an hour rip off joint.

 

Mcdonald's is the worst burger in Thailand for the price.  Sorry, another lousy cheaply made US fast food joint charging California prices and paying 1 buck an hour to their workers. Smelly garbage junk should be outlawed.

Any Thai I have taken to Kiss likes their Thai food and after they have been once they want to go back. My gf loves their steamed bass with garlic and chilli dressing, the priciest item on the menu.

Hilarious. When was the last time you were in a Starbucks or McDonald's? I think you're making it up.

 

So where are all the great burgers in Thailand for under B100? Do they have an airconditioned dining room and a clean toilet?

 

I had a latte I paid B190 for at a hotel the other day that was much worse than anything I've ever had at Starbucks, yet still much better than the worst coffee I've ever had. 

 

Clearly you know nothing about how workers are compensated.

I like Amazon iced coffee, but hot not so much. I think a Starbucks latte or cappo is much better, but yes, considerably more expensive.

Burger Map, outside Lumpini Ville condo complex on Naklua Rd, is no more.

It has been replaced by a new Korean restaurant called 7080. They have about a dozen dishes in an introductory offer priced at 149 Baht. Seating indoors and outside.

A previous Korean restaurant on the floor above was short lived and that was pre Covid.

I wish them all the best, but just a handful of customers at 7 o'clock tonight.

No. I'll just have my usual double espresso at a conveniently located Starbucks. Friendly, well-trained staff, consistent quality, clean, calm pleasant decor, a view from a well-chosen location, reliable air-con, listenable music, good-looking ladies around, upscale well-mannered customers rather than bar stool refugees or loud pensioners, international atmosphere rather than Thai moo bahn.

Tried the Centara buffet breakfast Soi 15 today, 199B. Garbage. Missus tried most Thai items and also unimpressed.

 

Is she a food expert ? So funny to even consider a Thai opinion..

Informed that it does not open until the 4th of September.

It also states Thai/Korean buffet. So we'll see how that will look.
