    Yorky, thanks for clarifying that.

    Thanks also for the transcript, which is an extremely personal account of someone complaining about matters that are totally unrelated to anything involving food and its service. Its author might feel that he's relieved himself of a burden that was troubling him by sharing it with others. It wouldn't be a course of action that I'd choose, but each to their own, again. From what I have seen, it is something that he might be sharing only with his friends. There are no circumstances that I can think of which would induce me to repeat what has been written.

    I try only to judge as I find, and on nothing except personal experience. What I read doesn't impact on eating good food in pleasant surroundings and I'm happy to say that nothing has been written that affects whether or not I'll remain a customer. At any restaurant, or bar, if the food and its value for money is good, and the service is acceptable, it will keep going there.

    I am given to understand that the "someone" is a manager of the restaurant.

    If that were the case, it would still make no difference to my reaction.

    Apsara have introduced a "Discovery" menu today according to their FB page. At 500 baht for 3 courses, it sounds tempting...

    I used to love pork rillettes. Not had it for years now. I did try to make some myself but it was a mild disaster.

    Made correctly, they're excellent, but the Casino version from Big C (when and if available!) are NOT made that way.

    It looks like the price has been reduced to ฿ 390.00. Has anyone tried it?

    Good foods, good wines, nice new venue with air con and parking, good people, hell, hydroponic salad ingredients, imported meats and cheeses and such. I'll be there soon. And hell, I just paid 1100 baht at Hakuzou the other night for a bottle of decent Italian red. I'd like to try the Chilean Vina Maipo myself. I am partial to Chilean wines. :)

    Went last night. Had a great time. Good food, good wine, great company. Very nicely done up with good air con and decorations and ambiance. Lovely staff. Pat and Francois had no idea we were going to drop in. They showed up when told by the staff we were there. We were there until closing having a wonderful time. He has some delicious oysters. Everything I ate was delicious. Love the Chilean wines, but he had some decent French and Italian wines as well. My wife and I will definitely be going back. Waiting for son Cyril to return from picking up his girlfriend (with supplies from France) from the airport in Bangkok. I am told he is the expert steak griller. :)
