  1. Sutus Court on the corner of soi lengkee and soi buakhao might suit you.
  2. Ate there yesterday with the wife. Her Thai food was described as "ok but need more spicy" and my farang meal was quite good. The only problem was that her food arrived about 15 minutes before mine so we had to take turns watching each other eat. It should be fairly basic kitchen management to get orders for couples out at the same time although this seems to be a struggle for most restaurants in Thailand. As far as service was concerned, it would have been better if the black and blue dressed staff spent less time chatting with each other and more time helping the songkran shirt
  3. Trolleys are free at LHR - at least in T2 and T3 which I have used recently. I assume T4 & T5 will be the same
  4. Not sure if it is the same in Australia but from the UK they might not let you board the flight to Thailand if the return date is more than 30 days out and you don't either have a visa or another trip booked out of Thailand within the 30 days.
  5. I came in on the TG911 (cheap seats) from London yesterday at 5.45am. Immigration took about 20 minutes and that was because of a few absolute fucking numpties in my queue who hadn't filled in their landing cards properly, despite them apparently being checked at the end of the immigration snake line. Otherwise it would have been about 10 minutes. Waited another 2 minutes for the bag and and was on my way.
  6. Got 50.11 from the booth at junction of soi buakhao and pattaya klang on sunday. Today the same place was 49.87. For comparison the TT booths were 50.05 and 49.80 at the same time.
  7. I regularly take 600 cigs from bkk duty free. Get stopped about half the time (think I must look guilty of something) and, when they ask I just say I have got a few hundred extra. My experience has been that they don't give a fuck at that sort of number. A couple of times thaey have even said "that's not very much". Then they rummage through the bag and I am on my way with no problem. MY OPINION - don't take the piss by taking a thousand or more through and don't lie if they ask what you have got. Be friendly and don't complainif they stop you just go with the flow. They really want the
  8. very short trailer for it here http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02fqyx8 thought it was a piss take to start with...
  9. We went in this complex at about 9.30 yesterday. Sat at the bar next to this one for about 40 minutes. Obviously early days for your new bar but zero customers and a single disinterested girl sat on her arse watching the TV and making no effort to get passers by to stop for a drink wasn't a god sign. You probably need to be a bit more hands-on with the management to build it up and create a bit of a buzz for a while. Fully understand it may have just been bad timing and the place may have been jumping at other points in the evening. Best of luck with it anyway - it's guys like you who take t
  10. Saw this on the BBC and it made me chuckle. Man calls Solihull police to complain about prostitute's looks A man has been warned after he dialled 999 to complain about a prostitute's looks after meeting her. West Midlands Police said they were contacted by the caller who said he "wished to report her for breaching the Sale of Goods Act". The force said the call was received at about 19:30 BST on Tuesday complaining that the woman was not as attractive as she had claimed. Officers have now sent the man a letter warning him about wasting police time. West Midlands P
  11. Looks like my Christmas trip will be on a nice new aeroplane. Taken from Thai Air UK site: On December 1, 2013 Thai Airways daily service between London Heathrow and Bangkok will be jet-propelled into the 21st century when the worlds largest aircraft, the A380, comes into operation on the route. The A380 is just the latest advance in THAIs 53-year pioneering history and another clear sign of its commitment to offering customers the most comfortable and environmentally friendly flights available allied to its incomparable THAI service. Whilst other airlines may also fly the
  12. Well, I believe all of them. I doubt there is any reason to lie. A service such as Mr T. will not get it right 100% of the time. But based on the feedback it looks like he gets it right most of the time. If you happen to be one of the people he has let down then you will not be happy and you may take your business elsewhere. Others will be happy every time they use him and will go back again and again. I normally use Mr Toom and have never had a problem. Others have had different experiences and will not use him again. Personally I will keep using him unless and until the level of serv
  13. On a related matter, what day will the mass exodus from Bangkok begin? I was planning to get a bus up to Korat on 10th April but saw some of the traffic going up highway 1&2 on 29h December last year for the new year and want to avoid anything similar.

    The shop at Ripley's in Royal Garden mall has got them.
  15. 1. Bell bus to swampy. 2. Shuttle bus to the airport transport centre 3. Bus no. 554 to Don Muang. Cheap and easy, 3 hours all in. But in this heat? Fuck that. Taxi door to door and screw the cost.
