We have just opened a brand new Fish & Chips restaurant in Soi Lengkee called The Jolly Friar.

 

Fish & Chips start from 100 Baht, we sell Dory, Cod, Flake, Halibut & Parrot Fish plus many other dishes like Fish Cakes & battered sausages etc. A full Thai menu is also available, we will shortly be offering take away and delivery.

 

Thank you

Thanks for your post. I am always looking for good fish and chips. Perhaps you'd like to post some pics of your food. Lastly, your restaurant looks so clean!

 

Here's mine from yesterday.

 

 

030820101231pa.jpg030820101233pa2.jpg

 

Firstly, the place is immaculate, certainly on a par with Goose's - good aircon and TV.

Service also excellent.

 

I ordered the 250 gm Cod, which was the only size offered, at 190 baht.

There are other, cheaper options of different fish, but this was the only Cod.

To put this in perspective, 250 gm is gannet sized.

For Brits, F&C shops in UK generally offer portions 2-4 oz. - this is almost 9 oz.

I can eat big and I was hungry, but this was really too big even for me. It was a meal by itself really.

I would have thought a smaller option would be a good idea.

 

That price is for the fish only i.e. add on chips and mushy peas.

Luckily I only ordered the small chips (40 baht) and I left some. The peas were 35 baht.

I didn't order a drink, but a glass of iced water arrived anyway which was not charged for. I don't know if that's normal practice or they took pity on me.

Tartare Sauce included.

 

On the face of it the prices are highish, roughly on a par with Simon's a Goose's but remember that's for Cod and not Dory, which most of the low priced options are. Dory is OK btw, but not as meaty and a milder taste imo.

 

Quality:-

 

The Cod - I would give this an 8 (9s and 10s are rarely found outside Lincolnshire or Yorkshire UK). Taking into account the size, it was the best I've had in Pattaya.

The batter was light and crispy (unlike Pig & Whistle's concrete coating).

Without taking the size into account, it was probably a 7 alongside Simon's and Goose's. To put that in perspective I'd say NeeRoy's is a 2/3 and P & G a 5(at best) - for the fish.

 

The Chips - didn't really work I'm afraid. They were real and they were OK, but they were on the soggy side. Potatoes here can be a problem but I suspect these had been blanched for ease of final frying (not certain).

It's a good idea and can work brilliantly, but oil temperature has to be high or they absorb too much and don't crisp. If I'm wrong it must be watery potatoes but still oil temperature too low. They were also not very hot and I suspect were put out before the fish was ready. You could easily go another day and they'd be excellent.

 

The Peas - were mushy. No problem there - portion OK and slump value correct. The only place I know that can really mess up mushy peas is NeeRoy's.

 

That may sound super critical, but that's me.

It was a damn good meal and I'd thoroughly recommend it. :GoldenSmile1:

Nice detailed review from Mr Edge makes the food sound appetising.

 

Love good ol' fish n' chips. Will try hit the place next time I'm in town.

 

Good luck with the venture.

Went here again last night and it was as good as usual,I had the Cornish Pastie and it was huge,one small problem that the waitress sorted out very efficiently and without any drama.The Mrs had her usual Thai food and she loved it again.

They're doing a good promotion there too now,I'll not say here what it is but it's a good idea in my opinion and will keep me going there.

I ordered the cod and chips there. The chips come in 3 sizes.

Small, Medium and Large. The day I ordered I went for the large portion of chips (Must have been very hungry)Wow talk about large portions. There was enough there for at least 3 people. All served up with a massive piece of Cod. The food was excellent and the staff were friendly. Next time i'm in Patts I will be going back the JF for sure.

 

Any chance of a savaloy appearing on the menu?

 

 

Cheers...

    • 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
