Nestled between BTS Prakanong and Onnut Stations, lies the All-You-Can-Eat restaurant, BEST BEEF!
Shortly after moving to Bangkok, we noticed the large, outdoor dining area from the train and knew we had to give it a shot! (Especially since Joey’s a meat and potatoes kinda guy.) After our first visit, we frequented often… sometimes 2-3 times a week!
We were lucky enough to meet one of the owners, Michael, after an evening of stuffing our faces at his restaurant, and I asked for an interview. Michael not only met with us, but entertained me, Joey and Mom for the entire evening. It wasn’t long before I realized why our dining experiences at Best Beef have ALWAYS been a delight. Michael was the MOST gracious host! Not only that, but I could see that he truly cares about the staff and patrons that enter his establishment. (FYI, some of the employees have been there since they opened in 2008! That should tell you what a great environment the owners provide.)
When speaking about the restaurant, and the vision they had, it was this: Great service, great quality, great price. Check, check, and check! For only 439B you can enjoy all-you-can-eat beef, seafood, pork, chicken, vegetables (yes, you can still be vegetarian and fill up), and all you can drink beer.
So, what’s on the menu?
239 (food only)
329(food and non-alcoholic drinks)
439 (food and beer)
How do you cook your food?
(Note: if you’re vegetarian, Michael has thought of you too. They now offer soy-based soup if you’re uncomfortable with the meat-based broth. )
As a matter of fact, Michael said he has met vegetarians (while dining at Best Beef) that say, they were skeptical to come but really enjoyed themselves, and the variety of food.
What sets Best Beef apart from other buffets?
PASSION! Michael said, “Anyone can copy our food selection, anyone can copy our prices, but they can’t copy us.” And who is this family? People who enjoy other people, that treat every guest kindly, and put others happiness over their own.
Who will enjoy Best Beef?
- Families. It’s a great price and lots of food and variety that every member of your family will enjoy! (Not to mention, there is self serve ice cream 🍦 that little ones will love.)
- Tourists on a budget. For less that 500B you get food and beer. What a cost-conscious way to start your night in Bangkok.
- Those with dietary restrictions. Because the menu is so extensive, and you cook the food yourself, you won’t have to worry about added, or unknown ingredients.
So take my advice: when in Bangkok, this is a MUST visit establishment. Whether your goal is a full belly, or excellent service (or even a vegetarian friendly meal), you will get it all!
