THAI FOOD: Your favorite places to eat on a budget

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I really like the under 300 Baht western food thread, as it just has tons of great information.

As I'm sure there are more people like me, who really enjoy original thai food, I would love to get a thread going where everyone can post uptodate info on good and cheap thai food.

A post should include the name of the restaurant and its location, the dish you had and it's price, and your review.

Looking forward to finding the best spots for thai food!

Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

The Rompho Market on Second Road opposite Soi 5 has many carts from 16:00 to 23:00 and all have open air tables and chairs. Many types of delicious Thai food, BBQ fish or Thai table BBQ among them. All for much less than 300 baht. Not the format the the OP wants but I'm not a formal reviewer.

Every hole a goal.

Condoms kill boners. Save the boners.

This is a great idea!

 

I did walk past Rompho Market and it smelled and looked good, will give it a go next time.

i found that the food court in central festival mall was ok, average price per dish 80 baht. I was staying next door, so very convenient.

The small sois between Walking Street and 2nd road are good for reasonably cheap (they used to be 40 baht but now 60 baht per dish). 

I usually go to the same one but next time will experiment and try some different ones. 

 

Just avoid the big establishments and go for the small mom and pop run places on the road

I eat at the corner of third road and chayapoun regularly. And bring many friends there. Very good service by a group of Myanmar gals who have been there for years. Food is out in minutes and is quite good. It is usually quite busy with a good mix of falang and Thais.

my go to there is panang talay, cow pad talay or guy,  and hoi lai pad prik pow.

reasonable prices. And a huge menu.

Good shout. Decent variety among the 15-20 stalls at good prices and always fresh. I eat here quite a lot and if the stall you're sitting at doesn't have everything you want then they'll go to one that has the missing item and bring the food sort the bill out for you etc

My go to place in there is the furthest at the back and on the right which compliments the good quality Thai food with a great range of fruit base drinks and smoothies

Relatively inexpensive...the simple Thai dishes are under 100 baht

That food looks *fab* - making me feel hungry in fact!

How far down Pattaya Klang 16 is it? Only really been down to Big C around there and don't know the area very well.

 

Will definitely try it when I am next in Pattaya.

Thanks for that.

Think I found it on Google, you had to zoom right in?

Though August Suites looks on the same map to be in the middle of nowhere!

Buakhow market food court next to Tony's gym on soi Buakhao. Can't be beaten for cheap authentic Thai dishes. Dishes all range from 40-90 baht and they're fucking lovely. I used to eat here up to 3 times a day, not because I was trying to save money but because it was actually brilliant food. I'd pay double the price, no bother. They also have a fried chicken stand just outside the seating area too that could easily rival KFC chicken. 15 baht a piece if I remember correctly. 

The food complex on central road close to August Suites is also good but most of their food seems to be aimed at seafood eaters and I don't really like it. Had a good chicken red curry from there once though.

If I'm understanding which food court you're talking about right, here's some video of when Geoff Carter went to it:

I have definitely got to check out that food court. I often eat at Diana Dragon, on Soi Diana opposite at a slight angle the 7/11 on the Soi Burkhao end of the road,  as it is generally near the hotels I stay at, foods good from the Thai Kitchen, not as cheap as street food, or the food market no doubt, but you can chill out have a good meal under 300 baht, good spot for people watching. As someone who goes for 2 weeks max, I like to enjoy the Thai food, it's not a long enough break for me to be get fed up of it and want Farang food. That said you can get Farang food from there to.

I have noticed this place whilst walking between Soi "Bumpy" and Soi Lenkee.  I have never given it a try myself because I am not keen on dining alone. But as you say, it always seems busy with a mixed clientele, who seem to be enjoying  their meals.

There is a little hole in the wall Thai restaurant on Soi Honey right off of second rd. Little places like these are all over Pattaya and I love stopping at those places for a bite. I am always searching for the best krapow gai.

I prefer Indoor Food Courts like at Big C and Lotus.  Price is about the same as street meals but you don't sit on rickety seats with dogs, traffic and spilled food at your feet. 

Air conditioned and usually more sanitary.  Really gets me thinking when I see the roadside workers squatting while washing dishes in the same dirty soap water next to the street gutters.
