Buakao Bistro on Soi Bukhao

Recommended Posts

Buakao Bistro has been open about six weeks.  It's located on the stretch of Soi Bukhao between Soi Diana and LK Metro and across the street from Oasis A Go Go and Soi Chaiyapoon. 
 
As its sign proclaims, Buakao Bistro offers international and Thai cuisine.  There's everything on the menu from pad thai and Chinese steamed dumplings through hamburgers. pizza and pasta to steaks, onion soup and a French open-faced sandwich. Prices are mid-range, with plenty of main dishes under 200 and 300 baht. The owner/manager is a very friendly French man who enjoys talking with his customers.  He told he had been in the restaurant business in Pattaya for 11 years and was previously associated with The Kitchen on Beach Road.

The veranda is a good spot for people watching.  I prefer to sit in the covered section of the restaurant, but I still had a clear view of the street.  What struck me most is the number of near traffic accidents I saw.  That crazy intersection of Soi Diana, Soi Lenkee and Soi Diana leads to some hair-raising left and right turns.

The restaurant has a selection of bottled Belgian beer. I like lambic fruit beers and was pleased to see St Louis Premium Framboise (raspberry) on the menu. Fruit lambics go very well with spicy foods, so I ordered the penne arabiata at 160 baht. It was indeed spicy, but very good.

One nice touch is the free pate and bread that comes with some of Buakao Bistro main dishes.  The pate is homemade and tasty.

I next tried the parma ham tartine, an open-faced French sandwich. It wasn't cheap at 220 baht, but then neither is parma ham in Thailand. Again, very good but not particularly filling.

I've also had the fish burger and fries at 210 baht ...

and the smoked salmon wrap at 180 baht.

No complaints about either. The fish fillet in the burger had been nicely breaded and season, while the taste of the smoked salmon wasn't overwhelmed by the other ingredients.
 
Bottom line:  Good food at a good location.

Nice review. I eat there once, food was agreeable, just felt the venue was a little noisey at that junction. Not very relaxing.
