Bar Mehang

Yesterday evening I went for dinner with Puk, John, Ann and my new friend Camilla.

Major is a shopping centre about 10mins walk away that has undergone a transformation since my last visit. Originally built as a cinema complex with a few shops and restaurants attached. There is now a sleek, glass and steel, curved S shaped extension containing more restaurants, banks and a small supermarket. The Villa supermarket caters for the home comforts of westerners. Unsurprisingly I haven’t felt the need to pop in for a tin of baked beans yet……….

A few bars have also sprung up nearby and last night we tried out Mehang. The roof top deck had the feeling of a (albeit Thai) beer garden about it. They were showing Premiership football on a big screen, selling beer by the three-litre pitcher and had slightly above average prices.

The atmosphere was bringing in the locals and the place was busy with almost every table filled. There were a couple of live acts playing music during the evening. Both were very good. The first act covered a Lily Allen track, and it was sung in a perfect cockney accent.

The food was good. We shared a prawn pad thai, som tum salad, morning glory and fried chicken. The presentation and reasonable sized portions made up for the slightly expensive prices. The service was a little slow, but you can’t have everything…..
