It's a scam!
Posted on 12 / 18 / 2014
There was no other staff in the restaurant but one middle-aged lady who didn't speak a single word of English. The restaurant was both a typical Thai buffet where you get a plate with rice and two or three toppings, and it also had a la carte dishes (60-80 baht each). It was impossible to find out which dishes had dairy or eggs in them.
I chose the buffet and pointed at a liquid Chinese cabbage dish, a tvp soy dish and an egg plant dish. The lady put the rice on a bigger plate and the three options I chose into three small bowls. I had no second thoughts about that, as the day before it was served in the same way in another similar place. I just wish I had read the previous comment!
When it was time to pay, it turned out these three spoonfuls of cold food that was not even freshly made were 160 baht! I asked why the price was so high, but the lady could not understand a thing, just showed on the calculator that one bowl (=one spoonful) was 50 baht. Another customer tried to help and said the price was so high because the food was placed on separate plates.
I was shocked and asked the lady to show me a written price of each of the options, but she just insisted that I pay 160 baht by showing the price on the calculator. As stupid as it sounds, at that moment I just paid for the food and only after I left I realized it was yet another scam scheme.
In most places in Thailand rice with two or three toppings costs 35-45 baht, even if the food is served on separate plates.
Avoid this place. I also think this place should be removed from Happycow.
