    Danum99 got a reaction from ARI23 in Adelphi Grande Sukhumvit 41   
    This was was an 11 day at Adelphi Grande which was very good. It was great to be recognised by all staffers. Breakfast could be improved as it seemed to be pork heavy, what with the strong numbers of Japanese clientele. I especially like the on time housekeeping service, the washing machine/dryer, good comfy bed and pillows. 
    Very-guest friendly and they do not fuss with ID and even send them up to the room. I am a regular so I don't know if this applies throughout.

    Thai food is fantastic. 
    I love the fried prawns in garlic served at Nara at Siam Paragon. 
    Also the Meing Kham at Baan Khanita on Sukhumvit, soi 43 (I think), is just incredible.

    The restaurant is gorgeous, but i presume being at Siam Paragon makes it a requirement. Service is good. As usual I had a hankering for prawns so i ordered their garlic prawns. There were actually 6 decent sized prawns fried in garlic until the skin was crackling crispy enough to eat. Also with it came the Tom Yum, crab omelette and desserts. The prawns was fresh and utterly delicious. I actually returned on 3 occasions just for this. It may be a tad costly but you will not regret it.

    I had wanted to visit on a number of occasions but had to put it off due to my limited number of days here. But this time I forced myself to make the effort. This was a half an hour walk from my hotel and I arrived at 12nn. Tak, the waitress greeted me and showed my table. I was the first one in. I ordered the Tom yum goong, pomelo salad, river prawns in garlic and pepper and a mango sticky rice with a pineapple frost. In the next 5 minutes I was served with the most excellent Mieng Kham I have ever tasted. This was complimentary. And I could not get enough of it. While still enjoying this, my pomelo salad arrived, followed closely by the Tom yum. I reluctantly pushed the meing kham away (it was almost finished anyway). The pomelo salad is typical Thai dish - salty, sour, sweet and held with a good dose of chilli. And there were slivers of chicken meat in-between. The tom yum goong was delightfully sour and delicious. But there was chink in the armor - the prawns were just short of mushy. In the midst of this the garlic pepper prawn arrived. 4 reasonably large prawns, fried in some kind of batter before the garlic and pepper was added in. Here the prawns was fresh. I informed the waitress who took the tom yum away and informed the captain who told her to change it or something. He brought a fresh dish in record time and said that this is fresh prawn. I refused the dish and told him that it should be that way from the onset. I decided to cancel the mango sticky rice. The captain brought the bill on request and pointed out that they did not charge the Tom yum. I said obviously. With nary an apology!! Service from Tak was excellent. The bill was 1318B. I would like to visit them again to try some other dishes.

    Danum99 got a reaction from Youngone in The ministry of crab   
    I finally managed to get The ministry and I was quite satisfied and so full from my visit. I had the chilli and garlic crab and it was superb. The sizes on order are listed on the menu and even though I ordered 'Large', it was a 4 in a category of 10 but it had massive claws. I was initially tempted to get the 5 or 6 by I managed to overcome my greediness. The table is replete with a good sized bib, a cracker and a pick tool, very effective to get into the little nooks and crannies. The restaurant practices a good policy of only live crabs, (you can ask to see it first), no crabs below 500g - the little ones are allowed to grow, no deformity, no claws missing etc etc. What is esp interesting is the way they 'cracked' the claw at the right places, making it easy for the diners to get into it. The chilli prawn wasnt up to my liking though. Cooked with Sri lankan birds eye chilli, it was too sweet for me. Jay, the restaurant manager, later told me I should have taken the pepper, garlic pepper or garlic pepper prawn. Ah! Well... The ministry is certainly worth the while. It would be good to speak with Jay to discover your interests and palate before you order. The bill came to 5900baht. I would like to revisit it again.

    While Bangkok is absolutely great for food I must ask you guys to give Cozy Italia a try. Its just in front of CIB and they usually order dinner from there  
    Their chicken cashew nut is very good and different from other places. Great Som Tum and Tom Yum Goong. 
    Nara restaurant also serves a wonderful fried prawn in garlic dish. It is out of this world.

    I would ask you to consider Adelphi grande sukhumvit, 16 Soi Sukhumvit 41, Khlong Tan Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110, 
    Big rooms, washer/dryer so you travel light, guest-friendly, and close to Phrom Phong BTS. 
    Fair rates too and with bfast.  
    And I think what you said about cash makes sense. Cant go wrong there.

    i too have purchased from them for a couple of years. there are others in the vicinity that are also reasonable. 300B for Sidegra and 400B for Apcalis.
    1. well lets say the closed pharma is on the left of you (same side of the road) with JWMarriot just up ahead. Turn around and walk some 100m (or more) and you will come across a small than av-sized shop (almost a half shop).
    2. in fact the pharma shop, immediately next to the now closed one also has it at the aforementioned prices.
    3. similarly, across the road from no. 1 you will also find a pharma selling at the same price.
     
    hope this helps.

    I have had 3 stays with Adelphi. It fits with my location requirement which is to be close to both the MRT & BTS stations making travel relatively easy. Bikes and cars aren't exactly the best ways to travel in Bangkok. 
    There is a Tops supermarket at the beginning of the soi so that is a great convenience and the Phrom Phong BTS station is some 300m from the main road. 
    The hotel is good in that the rooms are well equipped and  large. The washer/dryer requires less luggage and I find this ideal. 
    Breakfast was part of my pkg but much of what they serve is pork to cater to the Jap clientele but I am generally comfortable with eggs and toast. But they should cater to others too. 
    Room service is on time and this  is something I am particular about. Staff are attentive and good at what they do.  
    I am sure I would return in future.
