Robins Nest Soi Buchaoew

I just had breakfast at the Robins Nest Restaurant on soi Buchaoew. I frequently eat here. Although the food is expensive I treat myself, especially after a night of heavy drinking. They offer an all you can eat breakfast for 199 baht. I most like the more than one cup of coffee they offer. As an American I'm spoiled with all you can drink coffee

refills. The menu said said 3 drinks maximum. I thought it meant the coffee and not the crappy orange juice. When I questioned the extra 90 baht I was treated like a dumb fool who had the audacity to question the exulted Thai about a charge. Clearly I was wrong. However, a good business should value a customer instead of rubbing his nose into it. When I ordered a simple clarification of the extra charge would have sufficed. Or when presented with a 300 baht bill for breakfast some rumored Thai friendliness would have helped. There has not been a summer in which I have not spent 3 or 4 thousand baht here. I'm voting with my feet. The Butcher Arms or Crazy Daves will now have my business.

so you have two points here, one is the extra charge for the drinks and the other is the waitress being rude.

 

About the drink part why did you think the 3 drinks maximum does not include orange juice? Is it posted on the wall or menu?

So presumably you got all you wanted to eat. You don't say how many coffees you had? You don't mention anything about the menu saying the orange juice was free, so is that the 90 baht or maybe you had 3 coffees and 1 orange juice? Sounds like they mean 3 drinks means 3 drinks. Whatever, 199 + 90 = 289 so how come the bill was 300?

Sounds like American ego + "heavy drinking" (= dumb fool?) meets normal Thai reaction to being accused of being wrong.

Much ado about nowt methinks.

PS. Every time I think I've remembered how to spell Buakhao (?) someone changes it yet again :Bye5:

Totally agree about Crazy Daves, a great place to breakfast after a night out. However, you may get another surprise at Butchers Arms. The advertised B100 English Breakfast is not going to be what you expect, their "full" English Breakfast is priced at B140 and this does not include tea or coffee so your meal will come out at B180-B190. Maybe still value at this price but you will again feel ripped off.

Had dinner at this place 1 week ago and ordered the mixed grill. I asked the waitress what meat was included in the meal and she did not understand. No problem as she got another waitress who told me in detail exactly what was in the mixed grill(the menu did not indicate what was included) Told her I did not like liver or pork and was told "No problem sir I will give you some extra meat to replace liver and pork. This was done and meal was nice and good value at I think around 180 baht but not sure of exact price.

 

Upon paying the bill and leaving a tip the first waitress came up to me and said "Why you not tell me you no like liver and pork? My reply was you did not tell me what meat was included in the meal remember? With this reply she stormed off. Is this a case of staff thinking they are better than customers?

 

Would I go back to this place? Yes I would be happy to go back but would hope to avoid the first girl who has an attitude that is not customer friendly.

my friends and I have been to this place on a number of ocassions, we r not skinny people and eat a good feed, but any time we eat here we could not finish the meal, ie far to much on plate and it was beautiful.

Oh and there were a few nice waitresses that I can remember and they were very polite to us Bravo1.gif

The food has gone down hill since my last trip I go to Canterbury Tales I find the food better there now.

 

Also the owner/manager of the one in Soi Diana is very rude to his staff.

Yep i have seen that as well the food is nothing special and yet the staff have always been very nice and polite in my own experience and i dont understand why he has that attitude with them in front of the punters

Just a small language barrier at the beginning I think. (just a little bruised ego on her part)

I've been to both many times, and never had any problems. And it sounds like the OP is arguing about a tiny amount of money after not clarifying something cearly visible on the menu. Lets face it, its not the U.S., where - in my experience - some loudmouthed boor feels it necessary to whinge and moan about the smallest triviality in every eating establishment.

 

BTW, where is Canterbury Tales? I might head down there next time I am in town.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
