    Classy Thai Restaurants

    Now on my travels everyday I have to nip off to Ban Chang, my original thoughts on this job had me spending my afternoons in the short time bars there, alas i was sadly mistaken and actually have to work and haven't even had the chance to visit any of them, hell it gets worse as most of my lunches are bought at 7/11 due to time restraints, ie I like to piss of early so I haven't even eaten at the Camel pub and restaurant, now this place is good eating, well apart from having ants on my plate each time I have eaten there, but even that is better than a 7/11 microwaved chicken burger, so on with the thread.

    This place is being built in Hat Sai Torng, or golden Beach near the Ambassador Hotel, and i believe it is going to be a sea food restaurant.



    Now that is a big expensive restaurant.



    This is their garden feature.



    Now as this place is on the slip road off of Sukhumvit road they didn't want their customers to have to view all the traffic etc, so they have built a mountain between them and the road, ok at the moment it is just a pile of dirt, but I think they will make it look good, would you put this sort of money into a restaurant in Thailand?

    Anyone been to the Forest Restaurant, or Tam nam Par? It's outside of Ban Phe in Rayong. Waterfalls, swans, pools & bridges, big fish. Around 1.5 acres of I'd say.
    Something like walking into an Indiana Jones set. The foods pretty good and reasonably priced too- you can have crocodile or Emu there, and they do both Thai & falang food.
    It would cost an absolute bomb to do something like that in the west. Well worth a look if you're in Rayong.

    Some of the world's wealthiest gourmands will be jetting into Thailand this weekend, enticed by a banquet sprinkled with Michelin stars. The gala dinner will be cooked up by six three-star Michelin chefs and served at a restaurant on the 65th floor of a luxurious Bangkok hotel.
    The grand title of the event - "Epicurean Masters of the World" - is matched by its price tag.
    The meal will cost diners 1m Thai Baht - about $29,000, or £15,000.

    There's 10 wines on that list - After about number 8 do you think you'd even be able to see what you're eating let alone taste it.....'Sir, I think you'll find that you are eating a cork"...."Eh, what, bloody delicious, compliments to the chief"

    Not sure the dog is the right person to review classy restaurants.
    He's getting on a bit now, no updates on short-time bars for a while now...
