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.

Rasa Khas Indonesian Restaurant **

Remembering the delicious street food we had in Indonesia, I tried out this new restaurant with some friends. Everything showed that it was new (well, 4 months old or so), from the sparse furniture and few decorations inside to the absence of most of the curries on the menu, because "we are a new restaurant and can not stock everything", and the low number of eaters.

The bamboo terrace outside seemed nicer than
the air-conditioned space inside where none of the tables has any view to speak of.

Wanting something different than the chicken sateh recommended by the waiter we ordered the gado-gado (Indonesian salad), which was tasty, the lele fish, which looked and tasted exactly like the grilled mackerel we can buy here cheaply on the street, not like the lele we ate in Indonesia, a good chicken curry (the only curry available) and a not very freshly made lukewarm fish dish with cabbage and potatoes. All thankfully served with sambal, the Indonesian chili. All in all a bit disappointing, but maybe it'll get better once there are more customers. Big bottles of beer were served.

The service was friendly and attentive, prices reasonable.
