For several years now, New York Diner, next to Insomnia on WS,  has been a late-night  option for me.

It offers tasty and (relatively) cheap U.S.-style comfort food as well as some international and Thai dishes.  The food won't made your taste buds want to run up the stairs and dance in Insomnia, but it's very acceptable when you need something solid to soak up the booze at 2.00 a.m.

The seating is comfortable and I personally like the New York themed walls.

The New York Diner is part of the Insomnia group and there's a hallway connecting it to Ibar. From time to time, I've seen some of the more famous Insomnia princesses having a meal at the New York Diner without farang male companions.

It's also not a bad spot for people watching.  I've seen everything from fist fights to what I figured was a marriage proposal-  or maybe the girl was just ecstatic over an offer above 1,000 baht for L/T.

A few nights ago, I had the grilled ham and cheese sandwich for 109 baht. Simple comfort food, but sometimes that's all you need after a few hours of imbibing.

Last week I had the macaroni and cheese for 249 baht, which the waiter said was a popular choice. Mac and cheese has become a favorite dish in several countries around the globe, so it doesn't surprise me that more than Americans order it. The pieces of crispy bacon really added flavor.

It wasn't a big portion, but it was enough for me when my belly was already pretty full of beer.

I also tried the current special offer, a pulled beef sandwich for 285 baht.  It was good, slow-cooked beef with a homemade barbecue sauce and all the trimmings, but not good value for money.  There a restaurants all over Pattaya where you can get a full for about the same price, including New York Diner!

Some representative prices from the menu:

I quite like the chili cheese dog at 219 baht, even though that's a premium price. Be aware that the chili topping is spicier than you'll normally get in the U.S.

New York Diner has several types of pizza on its menu, but I don't think the 69-baht special is currently on offer.  It was OK, nothing special, but acceptable.

I haven't taken any pics of the spaghetti Bolognese for awhile, but it is basically the same.  The portion isn't large, but sufficient as a late-night beer soaker.

Bottom line:  I've never been entirely sober when I've eaten at New York Diner, so that may have influenced my opinions of the food.  As a convenient place to get a food fortifier late at night, New York Diner gets the job done.  It wouldn't be my first choice for a normal dinner, but it's OK for snacks and comfort food in the wee hours.

The ham & cheese for 109 baht and the 69 baht pizza seem like pretty good value for a place that is paying Walking Street rent.

 

For awhile there was a place using the name "New York Diner" on Soi Buakhow that was neither "New York" or even a "diner" when I looked at their menu. Is that still around?

You thinking of the Btooklyn Diner maybe on soi buakhao

Mates really like their pizzas.

 

OP

 

Always been a bit too drunk to try the place but food looks good in the pics.

their pizzas are far from Brooklyn.   I do eat then when in the area, but they are just acceptable, but they do have a lot of choices

Yeah sorry meant the pizzas at New York Diner. I like the schnitzels at Btooklyn Diner.

I think your assessment (and JH's) is spot on: food is okay - not great, but certainly not bad.

 

I stopped in here multiple times on my last trip for a snack/quick bite -- think I got the ham and cheese both times.  No complaints, but also nothing to write home about.  It's a better quick bite than grabbing a burger at the McDonalds on WS.

 

I anticipate that I will be there AGAIN on my next trip.

The Thai food is surprisingly good and great value for money

 

I haven't tried the Thai food, but I will.  If I remember right, they have a couple of specials on Thai food for 99 baht that include a bottle of beer.

Went there once and it was good.

But u write : " For several years now, New York Diner, next to Insomnia on WS, has been a late-night option for me."

The place is only 2 years old , if I not wrong.

Anyway thanks for all ur restaurant reviews .. always useful.

You are right.  I should have written "a couple of years" or "Since it opened."  The definition of "several" is "more than two but not many."  NYD opened in August, 2014, so it has been open more than two years but not more than two calendar years or two full 12-month time spans. 

 

I want to build a bit on socrates' post. Here are some examples of prices for Thai dishes (except the chocolate mousse, which is nevertheless very cheap).

Unfortunately, LaLa is not on the menu, but you might see her there.
