The Hit And Run Restaurant "review" Thread


Recommended Posts

Seems like putting all these great spots on google maps would be very helpful

http://goo.gl/maps/XRvVJ

I created a Pattaya Restaurant Map there. I added the british curry spot that is close to my house that I enjoy to eat at regularly I think I setup the map so anyone could add/edit the points of interest.

It would be great if others could just place a landmark tag near to where the restaurant they are suggesting is at. You could also list a title (like Indian food) and a description if you have some comments to add.

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.

And now for the best kept secret on the dark side.... Norbert's.

Run by an Austrian former chef, this "restaurant" comprises of a huge massive wooden table on the patio of his house.

The menu is written on black boards leaning against a wall. In German only. Come hungry, the portions are huge. If you dare trying the dessert, make sure you share it with at least one other hungry person. This person should not be the driver as the amount of saeng som soaked raspberries on the huge pile of vanilla ice cream topped off with egg liquor would boost you beyond the legal limit.

Other food ranges from curry wurst over maultaschen to Gulasch.

As I'm not really sure whether he has a restaurant license, I will reveal the location by PM only. :P

Le Freelax,

Third Road, the Soi between The Buffalo Bar and the Castle, 100 m. turn right. Michel the owner is a well-known guy among the French community since years, cheap French bistro cuisine, .

Closed now, open again, I believe, 7 January.

There is also a menu, a little more expensive now.p1030492sy9.jpg

have to check them out! Is there a Soi between buffalo bar and the castle? Never noticed, was probably distracted...

Armenia Restaurant Expanding

Many people know Armenia restaurant from their various locations.

For example Jomtien Beach Road at about Soi Welcome Plaza, Naklua Road not far north from the Dolphin, two locations on Pratumnak Hill I can't describe.

NOW a new visible location.

Thappraya Road roughly across from Hanuman Statue area, not far from Simon's Fish and Chips.

Armenia features Armenian and Russian food catering to a mostly Russian crowd.

I have tried a number of dishes at their Jomtien Beach Road location and found them pretty OK, nothing mind blowing, but some interesting dishes like warm stuffed grape leaves, pork balls w/ pilaf like rice baked in a pot with crispy wafer thingies, etc. In other words, they've got borscht, but they've got more stuff too you probably haven't seen elsewhere. The prices are pushing it but not shocking.

This new location is so new they weren't even serving yet tonight. So this is like a NEWS FLASH.

The place replaces the La Scala Cafe location which is ... no more.

There is a Thai restaurant on Sukhumvit just across from the entrance to Soi Khaotalo (actually there are two side by side but I'm talking about the one closer to South Pattaya Rd. It's called Chok Anann but the sign is (AFAI can remember) only in Thai.

Very popular among the Thais, very reasonably priced and the food is usually good. It's one of the few places I've found that serve tom yam Pra Koop (dried, smoked fish).

The fish itself is not very good to eat but it does give the tom yam a great, smoky flavor. I suggest ordering it with sea bass, but any seafood or something from the turf will taste good as well.

Make sure you tell the staff to let the soup simmer for at least 15 minutes (they usually serve the food very quickly) because if less than that the smoky flavor wont be transferred to the soup properly.

And please share if you know of other places that serve this dish.

Been going there for 8 years and i think its the best,value for money restaraunt in Thailand.Amazing menu and great tasty food

So is this on the same aide of sukumvit as soi khao noi or on the other side of sukumvit? I think it's on the same said so if you come out of soi khao noi it would be on the right correct?

If you come out of Soi Khaonoi just drive straight across Sukhumvit and it's the restaurant that's closest to Pattaya Tai of the two restaurants you will find there.

Great idea about the restaurant map!

I was going to suggest the Choke Anan restaurant on Sukhumvit, opposite Soi KhaoTalo but already done... :)

So... for a similar type of restaurant, try the "Flying Green Vegetable" which is located on Pattaya Nua, almost opposite the HealthLand Spa and a gas station.

Try the Curried crab, or morning glory with belly pork. Dishes between 40B and 120B

Good service and value for money in both above places. Infact I wanted to have my wedding banquet at Choke Anan but the missus vetoed it.

PS. Good thread. Me likey.

I thought the map idea was a good one as well but unless others take the time to add restaurants to the map then it's a pointless exercise.

Even your instructions of coming out of Soi Khoa Noi and driving straight across Sukumvit is ridiculous and impossible to even do. You would have to take a left on Sukumvit and head down to the first U-turn. Then after you U-turn and now are traveling North on Sukumvit you are saying the resturant is on the West (left) side of the road next to what exactly? Mc Donald's? King Power Duty Free? Amway?

Why not just mark it on the map?

I really like The Swiss Restaurant on Soi Diamond. I have seen numerous reviews where it is quoted as too expensive and the staff too aloof. Two of us go there and get a really good beef fondue and a bottle of the promotion Red Wine and walk away with change from 2000 Baht. I know a Fondue is soooo 70's but once in a while with the right partner its a fun night out. Salad Bar, Soup and Garlic Bread included in the price. I also know loads of people don't like Thai Beef but if you are going to deep fry it in hot oil then smother in the lovely home-made sauces then is OK by me.

Sounds like fun to take a Thai partner who would never have seen a fondue before. Do they have other meats, maybe a mixed platter? Where on Soi Diamond?

Yes there is a huge menu of what I guess is traditional Swiss/German fare. Its about halfway down Soi Diamond on the North Side. There are 2 or three swiss places there, this one has a pizzeria/cafe attached. I will try and mark it on the Map,
