Another report from the Roving food Reporter..

 

Tonight ..was:

Shangri - La Hotel

 

85 Soi Wat Suan Plu New Road

 

Bangkok 2 236 7777

 

Almost next to Sathorn Pier..

 

 

This is a large beautiful five star Hotel with views of the city and River..

 

The buffet in the restaurant called Next2 is superb and the only one that comes close to knocking off the Oriental from top spot ..imho

 

Total cost for two...4750 includes my wife's cocktail 270 and a Jwr and diet coke 230...just a wonderful night out for any occasion...

Hi TB,

 

Thanks for all these nice reviews :bow:

 

I was looking for a place where they serve green lobster and found Paris Bangkok Co.,Ltd

120 Soi Saladang 1/1

Silom Bangrak 10500

 

But now you mention the Peninsula at 1800 and Next2 at the Shangri-La where I see green lobster turned red after grilling at xxxxpp? (pic 41)

 

I love smoked salmon, but that should not be an issue at any of these places isn't?

 

My GF must try real lobster, I'll be in Montreal in May to fill my belly with lobster but can't imagine bringing some over :shocked:

 

I only have 2 nights stay in Bangkok, so my choices are limited, what (buffet) would you recommend? Money is not an issue.

 

And I saw this strange tripadvisor review of the Peninsula dated 24 March 2011:

 

All together, a very excellent, comfortable establishment. The catering arrangements however were very disappointing for a hotel of this standard. The buffet style breakfast with choice of individually cooked dishes was very good. Facilities and the offerings for light snacks during the day were poor. The Thai and Chinese restaurants were good with excellent food and attentive service but should you prefer 'international' or 'western' food and wine in quality surroundings, that's too bad as the Peninsular's beautiful 'international' restaurant is unfortunately no more. Today, one has to make do either with a few tables around the edge of an over-chilled room housing vast buffet spreads of (uncovered) salads, meats and seafoods or resort to the River Bar outside where a very limited number of western dishes are offered accompanied by river noise and unwanted piped music.

 

Incidentally, has anyone stayed/tried the buffet at Pullman Khon Kaen lately? Rooms reasonably priced at 2600THB

 

Thanks

Actually that's not so hard. I bring back fresh seafood from NZ and that's a 12 hour flight. Get a small Styrofoam cooler, pack it with dry ice or a few of those "blue ice" chemical ice things (need to be frozen first), seal well with tape and off ya go. Salmon, bluff oysters and other fresh caught seafood has made it back no issues.

 

YMMV, of course.

LZ, thanks for the recommendation, but it is more complicated than that because I will have a one week stop over in Paris :dunce:

I might buy fresh or even frozen lobster in Paris but doubt it's worth the hassle, for smoked salmon it's easy, done many times, but then I eat so much when I'm over there I can do 3 months without :drunk:

 

Unfortunately though not a single shop around Udon thani has this kind of delicatessen.

 

It's mainly wine I bring from France, unfortunately NG's wife Darlek drank most of it :o
