Buakhao Bistro has been open about six weeks.  It's located on the stretch of Soi Bukhao between Soi Diana and LK Metro and across the street from Oasis A Go Go and Soi Chaiyapoon. 
 
As its sign proclaims, Buakhao Bistro offers international and Thai cuisine.  There's everything on the menu from pad thai and Chinese steamed dumplings through hamburgers. pizza and pasta to steaks, onion soup and a French open-faced sandwich. Prices are mid-range, with plenty of main dishes under 200 and 300 baht. The owner/manager is a very friendly French man who enjoys talking with his customers.  He told he had been in the restaurant business in Pattaya for 11 years and was previously associated with The Kitchen on Beach Road.

The veranda is a good spot for people watching.  I prefer to sit in the covered section of the restaurant, but I still had a clear view of the street.  What struck me most is the number of near traffic accidents I saw.  That crazy intersection of Soi Diana, Soi Lenkee and Soi Diana leads to some hair-raising left and right turns.

The restaurant has a selection of bottled Belgian beer. I like lambic fruit beers and was pleased to see St Louis Premium Framboise (raspberry) on the menu. Fruit lambics go very well with spicy foods, so I ordered the penne arabiata at 160 baht. It was indeed spicy, but very good.

One nice touch is the free pate and bread that comes with some of Buakhao Bistro main dishes.  The pate is homemade and tasty.

I next tried the parma ham tartine, an open-faced French sandwich. It wasn't cheap at 220 baht, but then neither is parma ham in Thailand. Again, very good but not particularly filling.

I've also had the fish burger and fries at 210 baht ...

and the smoked salmon wrap at 180 baht.

No complaints about either. The fish fillet in the burger had been nicely breaded and season, while the taste of the smoked salmon wasn't overwhelmed by the other ingredients.
 
Bottom line:  Good food at a good location.

Thanks, Evil. Walk by there often and was wondering...will give it a try. The penne looks like a candidate for a first meal along with a few others.

It had a real kick to it.  If you're not a fan of spicy food, you might want to ask them to hold back on the Thai chiles.

Hi,

 

Looks good.The French have an obsession with food. Usually you get good food as they will settle for nothing less.

Thanks as usual for the review Evil. I would love to see places that dare to be different survive. I guess that this was my complaint about GASCO that there wasnt a sufficient point of difference for me to care. This place is however different and within a few metres of cheap noodle shops and the Hole in the Wall. If it can hold on till the French and Belgians start arriiving later in the year it should get a solid patronage.
