I'm not sure why no-one has mentioned Doi Chang Coffee shop on Rattanaheat Road (in the corner where the roads meets Thanon Baanpa Pragarn Road). Their burgers are pretty good, but the are a little tight on the fries. Coconut bar on Jet Yod used to do a nice burger with an ample supply of fries, but I am not sure if that is still in operation.

We ended up in Sizzler today after running some errands in Central. I went for the burger, and it was pretty terrible. The bun was sweet and greasy and the cheese wasn't melted at all. 455 baht is pretty ridiculous, too.

Anyone have an idea- "In general" in the restaurant business in countries more developed than Thailand, how much does a restaurant hope to mark up the cost of their food when deciding on the menu price?

Can it really be costing B200 or more to put out a great burger, and then the price perhaps becomes B4-500?

I have now been twice to the Dutch baker that Donald mentioned.

Truly exceptional bread, and a number of other goodies as well. And, as a little added extra, the baker is also a very nice person to talk with.

You would expect an exceptional burger for 455 baht. sad.png

To be fair the burger would include the salad bar which has unlimited soup spagheti salads and ice cream

I believe the Australian guesstimat was 4 times cost of food minimum,

The beef to make a good burger here is about 400baht a kilo so taking that at 5 to a kilo (probably more like 4 including waste.

this makes a meat cost of 80 baht so we have 350 baht before the bread and salad and sauce.

Chivit Thammada has a really good Aussie beef burger. Bit pricey but really good.

I tried this today and was quite impressed, not only with the burger but the service and the general ambiance of the place.

It was busy on a wet Sunday but we did not have to wait long.

If I had a problem at all, the roll/bun fell apart early in the meal and I finished up with a knife and fork.

My Americano/Long Black coffee came with hot water to adjust to personal taste.

2 burgers, 2 deserts, 5 coffees 1300B

Just looked at the Sizzlers website and everything looks delicious. Sometimes envious of city dwellers. I live about 100k south of Phetchabun city, which has nothing. Will probably try the KK branch next time I am there.

Bit pricey? I'd say exorbitant!

If the coffee was overpriced at 80฿ and the desert was expensive at say 140฿, then you may have paid as much as 310 baht each for the burgers.

I'd call that expensive as hell, not a bit pricey!

I never complained about the price, just posted it without comment.

Like Le Meridien Sunday Brunch it certainly falls into the upper price bracket but it's nice to have somewhere local to go that's a bit better than average when you feel the need.

I also occasionally enjoy Maccas or local Thai food when I go out, it's just about having options.
