Captainís Corner refurbished and George Sinatra resurrected!

The Captainís Corner restaurant, the home of the Grand Texan BBQ for 15 years, reopened last week after a two month refurbishment. While the concept has remained the same (after all, it has always been a very successful formula), the actual venue has been sparkled up, getting it ready for the next 15 years.
The Captainís Mate, Kannikar Ottesen, was her usual bubbly self at the reopening party, which was bubbling along with plenty of alcoholic bubbly as well.
For many long-time diners, it was nostalgic having George Sinatra singing as the background entertainment, and after a couple of hours, his place on the bandstand was then taken by a Ďsounds alikeí BGís cover band, but it was George who was the sentimental favorite of the crowd. Kannikar did say that George would be singing probably around two nights a week, but full details are yet to be worked out.
However, the details for the Grand Texan all-you-can-eat BBQ are as before, including no change in the pricing, still B. 395. This is one of the best bargains in Pattaya, and I am quite sure the old crowd will be there again, to enjoy the new surroundings which are under cover as well.
By the way, if you are a visitor, they have a minibus service to pick you up from any hotel in the Pattaya-Jomtien area and drop you back later, just phone 038 364 314.
The Captainís Corner, 146/107 Thappraya Road, South Pattaya, telephone 038 364 314, email [email protected] .th. Plenty of on-street parking outside. BBQ buffet from 6 p.m.
