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.

Fuji Restaurant, Seacon Square **

"Not recommended"
My experiences at other Fuji branches were good, but here the food was not so great; our takoyaki was not hot enough and my salmon set had big pieces of fat and fish bones on it. My friends thin-sliced beef and sushi set was okay. The only tasty dishes we had were the delicious avocado salad and the steamed egg.

Staff was friendly but sloppy. They roughyl distributed the various bowls of our sets randomly over the table and forgot the steamed egg that was part of my friend's set. The tables at the window have a nice view over the shopping mall, but that didn't make up for it.

Mitsumori of Tokyo ****

“A pleasure to eat” 
Yes, nice minimalist atmosphere, lots of Japanese customers even on a Tuesday night, excellent food. The cold fresh tofu was a dream, the various grilled chicken sticks and pate delicious and my friends loved the soba in sour sauce and the pickled vegetables. The big bottles of Kirin beer went well with the food. Friendly and fast service.

Sri Trat Restaurant | ศรีตราด ****

“Nice but pricey food”

The big restaurant looks nice in browns and greens with vintage Thai details. The lighting was a bit weird with, some guests at each table sitting right under spotlights and the others in the dark.

The food was tasty, but I can't judge the authenticity. My local friends called the food "wild", of stronger taste and less sophisticated than regular Thai food. We tried 4 dishes, of which the pork in flower leaves was my favourite. The minced pork with salty fish was fine, tumeric fried fish a bit boring and the cumin chicken very spicy. All served with unlimited hom malee rice for 40 baht each. 

Both food and drinks were quite pricey. Service was friendly but very servile, and not always up to speed yet.

Reservations are a must; this was our second try to eat here. When we left, we saw that most empty tables were reserved.

Marugame Seimen, Seacon Square **

We don't often run into a Japanes self-service restaurant, but here's one we found in Seacon Square shopping mall. The simple furniture and decoration looked okay, but the uncleared tables looked a mess.

The main choices are Udon or Tempura. We both chose the Sauce Kastudon (Pork) set, which I regretted at once as the pork was either double or over fried and the crust was enormous and hard, and there was just a little bit of sauce. The accompanying salad and seaweed soup were fine, and 1 glass of (Est) cola was also part of the deal.

The staff was overworked and under pressure. They didn't have time to clear the tables and ran around desperately, trying to keep up with the orders (and failing) while it wasn't even crowded. I won't be back.
