Special Dining for Mother's Day +1

Post by tamada » August 12, 2019, 7:46 pm

There are three mums in the tam household and I want to treat them to dinner for Mother's Day. Pretty sure that most places would be busy TODAY so planning the outing on Tuesday or Wednesday when it will be quieter.

So I am looking for members recommendations for wholesome, tasty, Thai cooking, nothing pretentious, just good tasting local food, fresh fish and seafood with good service. Decent parking a plus.

I can't say enough good things about this place. Food, service, prices, parking, staff. Live music, but you can still have a conversation.

Very popular with families and special occasions.

Highly recommend.

Yes, and there are outdoor tables and a covered area with tables.

If I had to venture a guess, I'd say I've been there over 100 times in 15 years. I've never had a bad meal or a bad experience there.

Good call but they can also be a bit of a miss. I guess the busy ones are best value?

Anyway, all-you-can-eat will make sister-in-law very happy but ya isn't one for traipsing back and forth. Good idea when feeding the kids and teenagers though.

This is virtually across the street and we've probably eaten there 3 times in 15 years. I can honestly say that the last time was maybe 12 years ago and we weren't too impressed. Maybe time to give it a reprise.

I did some google searches and came up with the place where the last big family outing maybe 8 years ago was a success and all were impressed. It's ภัตตาคารระเบียงพัชนี or Rabiang Patchanee with tables overlooking Prajak lake. I recall they had off-road parking back then but that looks like it's no longer an option with all the building around it. Anyone dined there recently?

Let me add my recommendation although it has been a good while ago since I last ate there. My experience was unique as our table was near the road and a small elephant appeared for us to buy food (sugar cane?) and feed. :D

With evening rain always a threat, we opted for Bueng Mai Hom. I was mistaken when I said earlier that previous visits hadn't been great. I had confused Bueng Mai Hom with the smaller, lakeside place same side but a bit further south towards the traffic lights. We had eaten several times at Bueng mai Hom and it's always been good.

Total of 11 adults and 3 kids so doubled up on the orders of around 6 dishes + a fish so that each half of the long table didn't have to stretch too far. No beer so the bill came to only 4040 baht. Great service

One of the waitresses is truly stunning so that eye-candy did me for dessert.

I went to that same one about 11 years ago -- once -- never returned. Food was okay, service not so hot; but there's nothing there.

I'm glad you had a good experience at Bueng Mai Hom. It's my favorite restaurant in Udon Thani.
