For those want a (sort-of) Christmas dinner but don't want to spend much, the Chunky Monkey on Soi Buakhao; the Seaside at the corner of Soi Chaiyapoon and 3rd Road; and the Golden Ferret at New Plaza might be options.
The first two are offering Xmas meals that don't include turkey or Christmas pudding. The Golden Ferret is offering turkey and Christmas pudding. I've seen the pics of their menus on another board, but I don't want to rip off pics without permisson. Neither the Chunky Monkey nor the Seaside have Web sites or social media pages.
Here's the text of the Chunky Monkey sign:
"Monkey Gone Mad Christmas Dinner
Cream Of Tomato Soup,
Prawn Cocktail Bread Roll
Ham, Pork, Beef Or Chicken With Mash & Roast Potatoes, Carrots, Peas, Cauflower, Pig in Blanket & Gravy
Fresh Fruit and Ice-cream"
The main course costs 199 baht, two courses cost 249 baht and three cost 299 baht.
The Seaside is offering four roast dinners (lamb, beef, pork, chicken). All include the choice of aspargus soup or prawn cocktail as a starter and one soft drink. The lamb dinner is 370 baht; roast beef 290 baht; pork and chicken both 250 baht. The sign doesn't give a dessert option.
The sign at the Golden Ferret reads:
"Christmas Day Dinner
