Christmas Dinner Options 2019 (updated Dec. 6)

Recommended Posts

If you haven't made any plans for Christmas dinner, now would be a good time to make a decision. The popular places are likely to be booked solid , although from what I hear, seats are still available at nearly all restaurants.

The best value-for-money option I have seen is still the all-you-can-eat buffet for 500 baht at the Chik 'n Coop bar in the arcade that is a 50-meter walk south of Kiss Food. There's more info on it earlier in this thread.

The King's Table on Soi 13 between Beach Road and 2nd Road is offering a Norwegian Christmas buffet for 599 baht.

"On 24 & 25 December, 2018 
Traditional Norwegian Christmas dinner  
Ribbe (Roast Pork Belly) Served with Boiled Potatoes 
Roast Ham, Roast Lamb 
Sausage, Meatballs 
Prunes, Cranberries and Pickled Cabbage
Christmas Cake and more 
Starts at  5.30 p.m.  
All you can eat!!!   Only 599 baht!"

To continue the Scandinavian theme:  Livv on th Darkside and Akvavit in Jomtien:

Here's a translation of the Akvavit Christmas Eve menu:

"Akvavit's Christmas buffet showcases a giant and traditional Christmas buffet with lots of delights! 
The 24th of December:

"First session 17:30 to 20:00 and second session 20:30 until late!

Price 1,450 Baht and for children under 13, 800 Baht. We offer mulled wine and gingerbread cookies on arrival. Only bookings with 50% deposit are accepted! Book now at 038-233672. Welcome!"

And if money isn't a problem, this will be one of the best- if not the best- Christmas buffet in Pattaya:

Tequila Reef is one again offering a turkey dinner on the 24, 25 and 26 December:

We're getting into "last minute" territory, so a few final suggestions:

Event-Gourmet-Menu.jpg.484b6e0bf2faf9f7a1e3f31deb001fe0.jpg

 

That's a pretty impressive buffet, especially the mains and dessert, for 870 baht.  I may try it on Christmas Eve.

Gian's in Jomtien has a two-week special menu (text from a pic on another board):

Christmas Special 2018 
from December 16th to 30th

Soup 
Lentil Soup with Capsicum and cumin 390 b
Home made Tortellini in broth, stuffed with turkey and truffle mortadella  480 b

Pasta 
Home made Ravioli Stuffed with Turkey, Patanegra ham and topped with white truffle sauce   880 b

Main Course 
Sliced pork Leg with Boiled Lentils and mashed potatoes  680 b
Sliced Roasted Turkey with Liver, Cashew nuts and Risotto Taleggio  980 b
                                                Grilled Tomahawk steak served with Roasted potatoes  and grilled vegetables  680 b                                                               Grilled Tiger prawns with garlic served with Spaghetti garlic, oil, chili and fresh cherry tomatoes  880 b

Cheeses 
Selection of special cheeses from Italy  780 b

Hefty prices, but Gian's turns out quality meals.

It's less expensive at the Devonshire on Soi Lengkee (from a pic on another board):

Devonshire Restaurant
Christmas Dinner

Prawn Cocktail
Ham & Pea Soup
150 baht

Roast Turkey or Roast Beef
All the Traditional Extras
499 baht

HOT Christmas Pudding
or any of our fruit pies
Custard or cream 
120 baht

 

And one in Na Jomtien and one for those who don't care about Christmas Dinner.  BonChon is better than KFC!

Now that the Xmas dinners are all done and dusted, I was just wondering where all these eateries get their Brussels Sprouts from!

So does anyone know where, in town, this veg can be found....quite partial to them and they can be readily wok cooked?

More suggestions for Christmas dinner 2019.  The restaurants listed for 2018 will, of course, be offering a similar dinner this year.

The Sportsman (name on menu is in really small print):

The Hard Rock has two Christmas buffets, a giant one in Starz Diner and a much more limited carvery in the Hard Rock Cafe.  If you just want turkey and all the trimmings plus Christmas desserts (plum pudding, etc), then the Hard Rock Cafe's carvery is enough.  I haven't seen an ad yet for the Starz Diner buffet.

A Taste of Norway is the former Linda's in Jomtien under new management.  The buffet menu lists traditional Norwegian Christmas dishes.

Always thankful for your updates Evil, A frequent customer at Villa Market and will give Robins Nest a try.  Ot but if anyone is in Bangkok try Moonshine pub for Christmas Dinner. Soi22 , soon to be gone Queens Park.  It is free and good food. They only ask you to buy drinks and tip the staff well.. Free normally scares me as i remember the photo of BIG D tearing in to the buffet at FLB.  But get there early and tables were open at Thanksgiving.
