I visited Aroi Pub and Resto on the Darkside for the first time on Sunday, June 21.  I went with six other friends to try the all-you-can-eat chicken and ribs buffet for 259 baht.

Aroi is a a spacious and comfortable restaurant, bright and very clean.  It is indeed a pleasant setting for a meal.

Unfortunately, the food  was disappointing, very disappointing. That was the unanimous opinion of all the people in our group.  The selection of food was limited, not particularly tasty and worst of all, cold or lukewarm.  For some reason, the flames hadn't been lit under the chafing dishes, nor had they been covered.

The chicken and ribs might have been OK if they had been warm.  My quarter-chicken was cooked through, but another person in our group said his was still pink.  Ick!

The side dishes consisted of French fries and ried potatoes, cauliflower in a tasteless white sauce (NOT cheese) and peas with diced carrots.   All were cold. Again, ick!

There was also rather unimpressive salad table.  Sauces and salad dressings were the only things that seemed plentiful.

I've read some favorable reviews of  Aroi elsewhere, so this might have been on off day.   But even giving it the benefit of the doubt, tere were just too many cardinal restaurant sins all at once for me to go back to try one of Aroi's other buffets.

Bottom line:  The table conversation and the large draft Singha (110 baht) were the best parts of the meal for me.

There are many restaurants in and around Pattaya that offer buffets in the 200-300 baht range and all that I have sampled are better than Aroi.  One other point to keep in mind:  it is always best to get to any buffet as close to opening time as possible.  The chicken-ribs buffet at Aroi begins at 1.00 p.m. on Sundays and we got there around 3.00 p.m.  
 
If you want more information, Aroi has a Facebook page.  In terms of location, Aroi isn't very far from Makro on Sukhumvit Road.

Drive a bit further down the road and go to Sensations . The guy worked for Aroi before and has started his 

own restaurant last year . Does a great 3 course menu for 250Bht between 11.30 and 5pm .

The meat looks OK in that photo, but I cant say that I like either sort enough to eat just that, and the salads looked very boring indeed. How come only Sizzler seems to know how to make a nice salad at a reasonable price here?

 

But what does interest me is that mussels party. Has anyone tried it? Does it come with French fries as all-you-can-eat moules generally do in France and Belgium? I believe my radar detects chips behind the mussels in one of the pictures.

 

That place next door to Friendship tried all-you-can-eat mussels and chips at weekends for a few weeks a couple of years ago and I loved it. They were charging 100B which soon went up to 150B and then 200B if I remember correctly. Then they jacked it in.

 

But I'll happily pay 300B if (and it's a big if) the mussels and chips are good and hot and freshly cooked.

Is the food fresh?, Every time I drive past the parking lot looks empty, they can't be turning over food very quickly with just a few customers a day.
