I've eaten with friends and colleagues in all these restaurants in (greater) Bangkok. I'm no food expert, but I do know what I like! Many of my older reviews were also published in Japanese on newsclip.be タイ発ニュース速報. Whether you're after Thai food, or craving a Mexican taco, Japanese buffet or fish & chips, you can find it all here.

* A friendly WARNING: restaurants close, change and move regularly, so before you go make sure to check *

Baan Steak (บ้านสเต็ก), Paknam, Samut Prakan

Star full.svgStar full.svgStar full.svgStar half.svgStar empty.svg This small restaurant in Samut Prakan, just outside Bangkok, is located on the grounds of a former school, just off main road, with lots of parking space provided.

The atmosphere inside is simple but homely, with flower-stickers covering the windows. There are only about 10 tables spread out over 2 rooms. There's one table outside for smokers.

All customers receive the standard free appetiser, fried basil. On the menu western and Thai dishes with a small variety of steaks. I recommended the fish steak

The name stems from the famous Vietnamese dish nem nuong, grilled rice patty, eaten with green, herbs, garlic and cucumber in rice paper.

The wooden house with big glass windows is quite spacey inside with wooden tables and homely decorated with see-through drapes, and has a smaller terrace outside with lots of plants and trees.

The Eugenia Hotel and Restaurant

Star full.svgStar full.svgStar full.svgStar full.svgStar empty.svg The Eugenia hotel and restaurant is a house in neo-colonial style, and is decorated with furniture from that time as the owner is a collector.

Outside a beautiful garden with a big Thai-style gazebo and a pool, full of shade because of the abundant palm trees. A pleasant and quiet environment to sit down with food or a drink.

The restaurant part serves a variety of mainly western gourmet food, but it doesn't come cheap. We limited ourselves to drinks. They have a range of beers, lots of wines, cocktails and other spirits. Everywhere in the house there are separate rooms and corners
