    Zak's Soi 11

    We ate here 3 times and I might head back tonight for a steak and mushrooms quesadilla 555

    It is really good tapas and has an amazing Happy Hour.
    2 for 1 tapas until 8pm......most expensive tapas is 185baht

    And beers at 85baht, wine at 100baht
    I was drinking bottles of Kirin for 85baht....and unreal deal for a very good Japanese beer.

    And the patio and chairs are really laid back and you can listen to the great live band from Check Inn above

    Oh and the service is top notch!
    I must have eaten 10 different tapas in our 3visits and only didnt like one....The fish tacos.
    I ate just one of the 3.....the waitress asked if there was a problem and i said I didn't like the taste. She talked to the chef and he made me something different for free.....That has never happen to me before in a restaurant in Thailand

    But beyond that ......they are just super attentive and knwo their jobs.

    All Checkinn food is from Zaks, which is a real bonus as food was the only negative of the historical venue.

    I eat plenty of Thai food in Thailand but occasionally I like a bit of farang food too. Usually pizza or a churasaco Brazilian place.

    You could be right but then on the other hand you get a big discount on food and get pumped on a bottle of wine.55555

    I'm a cheap Charlie when it comes to wine. Don't know it well enough
    And the selection if wine in Thailand is so limited I usually stay away
    We bought a bottle in Pattaya split between Dupree, Ao and I and it was decent but not worth the 1200baht it cost

    And it can go bad very easy in the heat so you need to always watch for that

    Yup, although I'm not a huge wine drinker, Ao usually gets a glass so we always ask to try a small taste 1st

    Quick update on Zak's. Their happy hour promotion has changed. The BOGOF happy hour is now Tuesday / Thursday only with the rest of the week getting just a 20% discount.

    Not too bad but for me the tapas aren't good enough to be VFM at near 200 baht a dish. Don't get me wrong, happy to pay 200 a dish for anything if it's worth it, this just isn't IMO. Close on 200 for a bowl of 5 meatballs is pushing it in terms of VFM. We would often order 6-8 plates but at the regular discount, by the time you add the 17%, it pushes up to 1,200. Add a few drinks and it's up to 2,000 and for that I'd rather go get a regular meal in a restaurant with something of a reputation, even if I end up forking out 1,000 more.

    The beer offer has changed now too, mostly local beers and draft Chang at 115 a pint. That's still pretty good.
