"For fans of American-style BBQ, it’s nothing short of a dream come true; a crave finally satisfied. For all the western comfort food we are spoiled with in Thailand, choices for this type of food are severely lacking."
"BARBECUE fans are in for a real treat at this new restaurant on Surawong Road."
