  1. back to my original thread. as usual not much input so I checked out myself

     

    excellent French food at Philippe, Suk Soi 39

    http://www.philipperestaurant.com/index.php

    the restaurant is popular among members of the Royal Family and Philippe, in opposite to many other restaurants owned by Europeans, is daily in the kitchen during lunch and dinner for more than 10 years now.

    set lunch menu with choice of several starters, main dishes and desserts 550++

    while others have just house wine by glass, they have some good middle priced french wines by glass from 200-300

    I liked the pastry with snails (vol-au-vent d'escargots) and the beef stew (boeuf bourgignon)

    bill for two persons for lunch around 2400 THB with 4 glasses of wines and some water

     

    another nice place for lunch, this time Italian food, is Beccofino at Thonglor, Suk Soi 55 close to Subsoi 4

    http://www.beccofino.co.th/italianrestaurant.html

    Antipasti buffet, soup (3 choices), main course (5+ choices) and dessert with one glass of wine at around 500 THB I would call quite a bargain

    you can customize; the Japanese went several times to the buffet and took only a soup for 300 THB

    several italian wines by the glass

    very good Italian cuisine!

     

    in the evening went to Bei Otto (Suk Soi 20)

    very extensive menu of German food. currently it is Oktoberfest, so they have Hofbrau on tap

    prices still reasonable, bill depend on how much beer you drink. for 2 persons around 1000 THB for starter and main dish with one beer

     

    as a change we found a very authentic Korean restaurant on Suk Soi 33 in the same subsoi as The Office and Wallstreet bar: Seoul Jib

    run by a Korean couple

    Korean beef (Bulgogi) or beef ribs (Kalbi) for 400-600 THB for 2 persons with 6 side dishes, many other original Korean dishes like rice with beef (bimbimbap) and cold noodles

  2. everyone to his own!

    and even then depending on mood and circumstances

    while it might be nice, if they do not shower, dress up and go into "what you pay" mode within 60 seconds after the deed, and I appreciate some cuddling or joint breakfast in the morning it might get a nuisance if they still hang around later morning/early afternoon if you have a schedule or plans on your own...

  3. A very important question for eco class passengers is, if Thai will keep the very comfortable seat pitch.

     

    Regardless, for those flying FRA-BKK the upgrade will be substantial, since the currently planes are really, really old - they even lack in seat entertainment systems.

    scroll down on this facebook page and you will see some pictures from economy: http://www.facebook.com/pages/THAI-Airways-I-FLY-TG/108121652602014?ref=stream

  4. don't be so negative, Cavanami!

    boarding and deboarding is pretty smooth as it happens on two levels!

    a 747 and a 777 arriving at the same time causes a longer queue at immigration as one A380

     

    and there is still fast track for biz class in TG (in opposite to most other airlines where you queue with cattle)

  5. last week the first A380 of total 6 planes arrived and TG started on saturday with regular flights. It's name is Sri Rattana

    On sunday I flew out from Bangkok in Business Class on this A380.

     

    first time that TG offer full flat seats in Business Class; I was quite impressed! a real progress.

    you can get some pictures and detailed description here: http://www.ausbt.com.au/review-thai-airways-airbus-a380-royal-silk-business-class-seats

     

    Currently they fly in the morning to Hongkong, return to Bangkok and fly then in the evening to Singapore with return before midnight. This is more like a trial period and it was obvious that the service was not yet optimized as it should be. From mid december they will use it on the routes to Frankfurt, Paris and Narita (some claim Sydney instead of Narita but we will see).

    In the beginning they planned to go use it for the Londong route but they changed their mind.

     

    First and Business with 4 seats each row on the upper deck and Economy with 2/4/2 on the whole lower deck and in the tail of the upper deck. Here is the seatplan: http://www.seatplans.com/files/Seat-Plans/Thai-Airways/Thai_A380-800.jpg

    they have over 500 seats, more than any other of the 9 Airlines that already fly with A380

  6. The kid is of course a victim as well. Now the kid probably is being hid by the killers family somewhere. Which means he will have to grow up without father and mother, either with Thai relatives who support his mother and grandmother involved in killing his father, or he will be relocated abroad to people he probably doesn't know well in a different country and culture.

     

    so in either way the custody battle is decided and whether Thai authorities intervene or not, take away the kid from the killer family or leave it, the kid remains a victim!
