Aroi – New Pub / Resto On The Darkside

Recommended Posts

Just 5 days ago a mix of restaurant and pub has opened its doors.

When walking in you will see the huge chandeliers made of beer glasses. I feel sorry for the cleaning lady already.

The pub section is to the right where smoking is allowed.

Comfy sofas invite to have a rest after meal or sip one of the specialty beers they have.

Singha draft is available now while Carlsberg draft will be poured in future.

As the place is Belgium owned (with connections to Aqua Deymie) you will find a selection of specialty beers from Belgium.

The glasses look special as well.

The dining area is to the left and offers some comfortable seating as well.

Breakfast is available from 8 am.

Now to the food.

The menu consists of international food such as pasta, burgers, steaks and some dishes from Belgium as well as Thai food. I will post an excerpt of the menu and some prices at a later stage.

I ordered the Brochettes (skewers) which are available with beef, pork, chicken or shrimps.

The one with pork I had was 245 Baht and comes with some salad and your choice of potatoes. My choice was croquettes which are homemade.

The sauce comes extra and the four cheese sauce I took was 60 Baht.

Not only nice for the eye but everything was delicious as well and highly recommended.

For desert I followed the recommendation by the owner and enjoyed the vanilla ice cream with Advocaat (135 Baht) which is a traditional Dutch rich and creamy liqueur made from eggs, sugar and brandy. Aroi!

aroi20120821037.jpg

I was lucky to snap a pic of another dish that I will try on my next visit:

Vol au vent (Chicken Stew in a small hollow case of Danish Dough)

aroi20120821035.jpg

I was told that the grilled chickens are already very well liked by the customers.

aroi20120821039.jpg

aroi20120821051.jpg

Opened just a few days ago there were already 7 tables occupied which means word spreads fast or there is no other place for food in the area. I think it will be getting even busier soon.

You can find "Aroi Pub Resto" in Soi Toongklom-Talman (= Sukhumvit Soi 89), the second Soi south of Soi Khao Talo, about 200 meter on the right behind the rails coming from Sukhumvit. The Green Way driving range is between Sukhumvit and the restaurant,in case you are looking for pointers.

Open from 8 a.m. till late.

Excellent report mate, thanks for posting as always. Regarding your remark about Carlsberg, bloke down the pub recently told me that Carlsberg might start to get a bit scarce as it seems they're having some trouble getting it across the border. We'll see.

Looks great Campo, Yaya's opposite me is open on Sundays now, they do roast pork dinner for 160b beef for 180 and lamb for 200.

Would you be so kind as to give a review when you get chance as I won't have time before I head off to seppoland.

Cheers

Will put it on my to-do -list, though I won't have the sunday roast as I am not the specialist for this kind of food.

I hope you aren't stopping doing your food reviews. Your posts are some of the better ones on this forum.

Don't worry, I just was not impressed with the food, though as Yaya serves mostly British food somebody else might like it.

Excellent review and pics of this place and good modern layout too which is lacking in Pattaya as a whole compared to European dining places.

If had more quality places like this it makes living on the darkside a lot more conveniant.

Seems good prices too but you said they allow smoking inside the restaurant? thats a no-no from me if it is the case?
