    Good food in Buriram

    The old Sawatdee Krap bar is now under new management.
    It has a new name “FRIENDS”.
    Arne and his "lovely" wife have departed and Chris and Wan now have the place.
    Chris is the pie making Maori that many of you will know, so expect the food to be very good.
    He just started today (12th).
    And Relax.........

    A Maori in Buriram? Cool

    Why the quotation marks around the word lovely frank?

    Is it drink or drugs that makes you see these things?
    Or lack of grammar skills

    Arne's wife was the reason the place failed - he went home to Norway for work and she alienated all the clientele within a week. Sad really, he is a great guy.

    So doggy......

    Thanks Frank for the explanation.

    Serious question, what can a person do in a week to alienate all the customers when technically that person owns the business.

    Looks like the Doggy has passed out in another drunken stupor.

    Padding bills, putting Thai soap operas on the TV and having morlam blaring at the same time always seemed to do the trick in Phuket.

    1. Get pissed every night
    2. Sleep in the bar every night, rather than go home
    3. Appear mid morning hungover, unwashed, half dressed
    4. Ignore customers or treat them with contempt
    5. Sack the good staff and keep cronies
    6. Cease all cleaning
    7. Allow staff to emulate your own slovenly ways

    etc., etc., she is a real piece of work and poor old Arne deserves better

    Returned to a previous lifestyle, perhaps? Where did she work before Arne rescued her?

    from front of station straight to clock roundabout - turn left
    straight until T junction - turn right
    take 1st left
    after you reach the water on your right, you will see the bar with lots of flags on your left

    I'd say stocky rather than hefty but could be the same guy - he's into big motorbikes

    Not sure but from the way she dressed I'd say the rougher sections of Pattaya or BKK
