  1. New menu item at Valleyview.
  2. Valley View Restaurant may appeal more to the expats than the tourists, unless you are a golfer, due to its location near St. Andrews/Green Valley golf courses. Food is fantastic. The Sunday Roast for 260THB was very filling. 4 different meats (beef, pork, chicken, lamb), 4 Yorkshire Puddings, large serving of potatoes and veggies. I started to eat one of the Yorshire Puddings before stopping to take a photo. Proprietors are Steve and Mali. Very nice people. They also have several different pies that are excellent "to go" items. Chicken Balti, Minced Beef and Onion, Chicken and Stuffing, Pork and Apple. 95 baht each. https://www.facebook...estaurantRayong I have also been there for lunch one time previously and had the fish and chips which were every bit as good if not better than the Jolly Friar. GPS Coordinates are: 12.81207N, 101.06186E.
  3. You are a French prick so English is likely not your first language. You completely misinterpret my post.
  4. You presume a lot Idefix. What gives you the idea that I spend between 1,000 to 2,000 baht in a bar to come out to a 100 baht tip? Nothing strange about tipping more in a bar. I have not yet been to a restaurant where there are semi-naked to naked young women entertaining me. What buffets do you go to where they take care of the fire, level of water, shrimps or fishes for the BBQ? The ones I go to are completely self serve with the exception that they may either bring a pot of coals for the BBQ or a pot of water to boil. Other than that, I get up to get all my foodstuffs and drinks. Personally I could give a flying fuck what your Thai friend does or does not do. Your Thai friend probably washes his or her ass with his or her bare hand as well so I should do that as well?
  5. Buffets - No tip. Bar - 5-10% Restaurant - 20 baht unless exceptional service and then max is 100 baht If there is a service charge - No tip DATY - 1,000 - 2,000 baht
  6. Had myself a Western Bacon Cheese burger yesterday. First time I have ever had a Carl's Jr. burger. Very good. Quite tasty. No where near as good as Peter's Drive-in but better than the McDonald's and Burger King fare. Price for a bottle of water is ridiculous. 39 baht.
  7. steamer, Why don't you provide a restaurant name, map and details if the food is so much better in Bangkok Chinatown? Been there and have yet to find any restaurant that serves Western "style" chinky. jacko, Precisely correct. Most of my time is spent in Pattaya and area. The odd time I do go to Bangkok, the last thing I generally want to do is deal with the traffic problems in Bangkok Chinatown and the filth that is present there.
  8. Ate at the China Garden again yesterday. I am not sure why this place has its detractors. Does it serve Western "style" chinky like I can get back in Canada? No, but it is by far the best that I have ever found in Thailand.
  9. I have stayed at Phachara Suites numerous times, usually for a month at a time so I get an excellent rate. The rooms are kept very clean, Aircon works well and if it doesn't they send a technician to the room to fix it within 20 minutes. Generally lots of hot water. Only downside is that the place is full of Arabs and lately Indians who take full advantage of the kitchenette and stink the place up with whatever they are cooking.
  10. Settled for the all you can eat buffet at Shenanigan's in the Avenue Mall. Food was excellent. Service not great.
  11. Where is Bob Palmer's place? Disregard. Found it.
  12. Any recommendations on a place with an excellent Christmas Dinner? Please do not recommend Bruno's, Greg's Kitchen or Dicey O'Reilly's.

  14. As far as I am aware, the Lunch Buffet is not yet available.
  15. Absolute great feed. Crispy shredded chili beef is fantastic. Chinese food Western style if that makes sense. Will definitely go back many times.
