Restaurants In Ban Chang / Rayong

Recommended Posts

So on Friday night I took the missus out for our first meal out in Ban Chang.

We chose the Bella Vista as she wanted to see what Danish Food is like, but there didn't seem to be any and the menu was mainly Mexican and 1 Thai dish.

So we ordered Burritos and the small pork ribs. Small? it could have fed me for a week, I only ate half of it and took the other half home. The missus was similarly stuffed on only 1 of the 2 burritos presented.

Both meals were delicious and well presented and the plates were overflowing.

Price was reasonable but we could have done with half the food at half the price.

Only criticism is that the restaurant could do with some fans as the weather was a bit sticky and no breezes to move the air.

I eat here quite regularly, and usually there is a sea breeze that cools the air. The weather has been very muggy here recently.

The Danish nationality of the owner is not represented by the style of food served there. The steak is v. good value, as is the salmon and halibut steaks. :o They also do a very good schnitzel off-menu, sometimes as a special.

How about pizza? My gf loves real pizzas - both American and Italian style, and hates the Thai chain-pizzas. Any suggestions?

Also tried Italian Bistro 43 on the weekend - had great har-gow (Chinese dim-sum shrimp dumplings), and some of the pizzas had real anchovies!. Nice to have a variety of sashimi too. Pizza, dim-sum and sushi - heaven! Alas, when we went back on Monday to pig out again there was no buffet. Is the buffet only on weekends?

thanks, Mark

A pizza place that delivers would be good as Pizza Hut won't deliver to Ban Chang.

We have to go to Pattaya for weekends to get a fix and order an extra one to bring back.

Thanks everyone for all the answers - hope I didn't offend by asking about the "sh*t"!!!

I like non-sh*t food too - had Gaeng Penang for breakfast today....

I should have asked about Indian food too. Any real Indian food in the Rayong area?

For a Thai woman, my gf is very adventurous - likes Italian, Indian, Greek, Mexican, big steaks, and just about everything except sushi (so far!).

Cheers, Mark

p.s. - not looking for home delivery - willing to ride anywhere for good food!

To each his own and that is especially true of pizza and pizza lovers.

My opinion is the Offshore has one one the worst pizzas ever I would eat Thai Pizza Hut first if they were here in BC

We have a Lotus and KFC maybe PH next?

Out and about today and had some shopping to do at Lotus in BC. I noticed as we drove in to the car parking area there is what I believe to be a new Pizza place open on the inner drive way strip of shop houses near Lotus. For those familiar with the place it will be on the very end of the row of shops opposite the store and carpark. The last shopfront. I did not see a name other than Pizza Place and did not stop to ask about it. Next time I am around I may stop to see what they have to offer.

I've tried that pizza place down the end of shop houses opposite lotus carpark

it was alright - nothing to get excited about

the camel does the best pizzas in ban chang

but there's no really great pizza place here

by the way -just for a change i've had the schwarma ( Chicken or beef) form the little restaraunt on the left inside simthavee park-

pretty good at about 70 baht

makes a nice change- the place is run by a north african guy with thai gf-- egyptian/lybian/algerian-- not sure which so the taste is authentic!

I have just returned from four weeks away from home and wonder if the BBQ place on Phala beach has re-opened yet? If not I will try the Bistro that has been recommended in Ban Chang.

Beach House BBQ is closed indefinitely.

50 meters farther down is a new Thai style place. "Old Beach House Restaurant" if you want mainly good Thai food in a nice atmosphere

Food at the Old Beach House not as good as it was. Hope it gets better (change the chef) as its a nice chilled out place to eat.

When you hit namrin beach turn left and the restaurant with " open " in English is the first one you come to which is well built and set back up the hill off beach road. Owned by a Thai traffic cop and his lovely family. Daughter in US uni son in English syatem both speak excellent English and have helped with a clear English menu.

Fantastic food, good service, genuine people.

This restaurant name is Baan Bai Boon and there's now a big neon Pepsi sign outside it at the roadside. It's not hard to miss anyway as it's the only place along there once you've turned left onto the beach road.

Ate there last night and the food was very good and a good price too (400 Baht for a meal for 2 with a large beer) :o . Could become a regular as it's the closest place to my house that's been mentioned.

I like the Old Beach House, but my wife doesn't think much of the food there and isn't keen to go back. I think the atmosphere makes up for the food a little though.
