Ting Tong Tony from the Drunken Duck recommended it to me and I was round there like a shot. I miss English style Chinese food badly.
Anyway, I took Miss Thumbs Up from Soi 6 last night for a romantic meal.
It looks lke it's going to be expensive from the outside but in fact it's quite the opposite.
First thing that strikes you is the beer prices. Really cheap. We were drinking draught Asashi 1/2 pints for 60 baht. It was lovely.
I ordered the deluxe meal for 2 that costs 495 baht.
Prawn crackers to start. We sat there enjoying a beer with them.
First was the starters. My god it was enormous. Chicken satay x 4, massive spare ribs with sauce, prawn toast, and 2 large spring rolls. Really nice.
Next was my favorite crispy duck pancakes. It was unbelievable how much duck was on the plate.
We were both stuffed but had to make room for the next installment crispy shredded beef, sweet and sour pork and special fried rice. It was monster.
No way could we eat it all. We came out seriously stuffed and just went home. No chance of drinking more beer anywhere.
The owner seems like a decent fella and came over to ask if everything was ok.
All in all a really nice place to eat. I wouldn't take a TG to be honest. All they will do is moan that it's not spicy. You are better off going wth a mate.
Total bill was 675 baht. Well worth it.
It's not exactly the same as UK but I'd say close enough. It was the one type of food that I've missed and never been able to find. It wasn't that busy but I expect that will change when word gets out.
