Chimaki Japanese Restaurant Soi 3


Recommended Posts

This is the second time I have dined here and the food has been great both times, so worth a write up. From what I can gather it is run by a Japanese bloke and his Thai wife, with her family working there. It is a live in business so it has that family feel to it.







170 THB and 35 THB for a soda water.






Good size portions.






Not the biggest place, but good setting to chill back and read a book.





Food is prepared fresh so expect a bit of a wait.

Wow, never heard of this place. Food looks good, and the prices are about what you would expect to pay for decent Japanese food anywhere in the world. Thanks for the review, I will check it out.

Looks good!

Thanks for the review...it's going on the list of restaurants to check out next trip.

(Yes I do have a list for this).


Have to tried the chain Japanese Restaurant called Fuji in Pattaya?

How does it compare?


I love the idea of this one being a small family owned business.

Seen it many times, but never looks open, any time I pass.


Thanks for posting.


I agree! You have to go inside and yell out, reminds of The Soup Nazi! I think they have a good expat clientele and don't depend on passing traffic.

Tried going there 8PM this evening, was packed with old Japanese men and I sat at a table outside for 10 minutes without even a menu given to me so I just took off. Guess they aren't interested in serving non Japanese.

I gave some misinformation in my OP!


Mr and Mrs Miyagawa are the owners (both Japanese) She scoots between Japan and Thailand and he is full time expat. They have been on Soi 3 for 14 years and the Thai chef who they both trained has been with them 12 year, thats not a bad effort for a small business.


They add a 5% service charge on the bill.





Fuck nose what that says!





No white boys after 6 pm?

Fuck nose what that says!


Just says Chimaki in three different ways. Well, maybe four, I have no idea what the Thai text says.

As for what it means, chimaki is sticky rice with some kind of filling wrapped in a bamboo leaf then steamed.


Ask them if they have it, sometime.


No white boys after 6 pm?


That says they're selling New Year's greeting cards around the end of the year. It's kind of a big deal in Japan to send those to everyone you know.


Anyway, why I really posted here is to post a question. Have you ever seen nikujaga on the menu there? It's like the ultimate Japanese comfort food, and extra excellent when you're hungover.

Place looks nice with some very traditional Japanese foods. +1 on the Nikujaka my wife makes it allot and I love it. Its sort of like a Japanese stew but made many different ways as many homes has their own recipes.
