I'm Impressed - The 'new' Sukantha Buffet!

There are people watching. There is some sort of code added to the bills at the table when you sit down. They ask if you want the sea food option or not. I suppose it's possible that a few people do cheat, but I doubt if it's very many.

Yeah used to go a few years back but the Chinese ripped this buffet all to God’s earth. This was also the once upon a time buffet that the Chinese brought a grocery doggie bag to stock up for the hotel. That soon stopped but their antics didn’t.. I will take my family one more time. It is or was sort of fun. And girl watching is always fun there.

East side of Hillside 4 towards the back.  I last went there about ten years ago.  Is it the same place, or something different?

Do they have live music?  Many nights we heard live music wafting in from that direction.  Now that Sutsana is closed (and they had much better music) I'm wondering if it's Sukantha.  Don't really mind, our bedroom is on the other side of the condo, but it is interesting noise if I'm up late doing Thai Visa in the living room.   Like others, I haven't been there in able four years and was pretty well turned off by the "termite mound" (love that term) of people swarming food and the idea of cooking my own dinner over hot charcoal in warm temps, while my dress develops snags on the concrete furniture.  Oh, for a table at Le Meridien in a cool, calm environment where polite, English speaking staff bring your food to your table and offer excellent wine.  More my idea of a night out with friends.

 

 

 It's aimed at Thai customers who enjoy this way of eating who probably can't afford the Le Meridien. It's their idea of a night out with friends.

Same place as ten years ago, but the variety of foods has increased from one 'line' of food tables to three or four lines.

Having been to both, it's easy to compare them... and contrast them.  The Meridian puts nicer tables under its serving dishes, but has less than 1/10 of the choices of foods. The Meridian is much quieter, which is nice. It's a restaurant dinning room. The Sukantha lacks the snob appeal and bragging rights. It's a barn. The food in both is excellent. A meal at the Meridian is a quiet affair. A meal at Sukantha is a party.  I like both.

They have live noise. I'd be reluctant to call it music, but there are people up on the stage singing and playing guitar.

 

Yup, that's the place.  Another reason I've found it not to be an enjoyable experience the few times I've been pulled into a group to go there.  It's bad enough to hear the music drifting into our condo window some evenings.  Sounds like it's karaoke, not professional music.

The chinese writing on the Front Gate  tells us '1000 persons self-service food'.  

 

I ate there 2 yrs ago. Advise all to fully cook, at your table, all food served at that buffet.

I have been before again quite a while back. Was very busy and we live the other side of town so we didnt go back..   Our usual haunt is the one on the moat next to Wattana school.   Not as much choice but cheaper.  As its less crowded and nearer to us we tend to go there.

 

Would be interested to know of any other decent moogata's ? or BBQs preferably Nong Hoy side of town not Nimmaheimen

Going next week will give the band 5,000bt to turn it up full blast!

What a nasty thing to imply!

Do you have anything at all to back up such innuendo? Or are you just defaming the restaurant out of spite because you get a headache? 

Some people just have to denigrate and whine bud.

Mods... I think this thread has run its course. Please close.

Shame was hoping to hear about other moogata, guess I will have to start a new thread
