Or Sky Cafe, is a pretty cool little restaurant/coffee shop/bar located just outside of town. Heading down Talad Mai, it’s just a little bit past the main intersection heading towards Central Plaza. Instead of turning right at the light, keep going straight. Not the easiest exit off the main road, but well worth the visit.
I enjoyed a really good meal there last Saturday–a very spicy spaghetti and chicken wing dish. I normally don’t take pictures of food, so unfortunately you’ll have to use your imagination. It was surprisingly busy for the oddish time (about 1600). It’s a very clean restaurant inside and offers excellent service. The views itself are awesome–it was cool to see a panoramic views of Surat city and all its development. It felt like being in a remote area without dealing with the commute to get to that type of area.
Next door is the Sky Bar, which is a small but fun looking area. It would be nice to head there and have a beer watching the sunset. There’s even a small rectangular swimming pool on the premises. It looked like they show movies there often, as there’s a large screen there. I attempted to find the cafe online, but only a Facebook page pops up.
Pricewise, Sky Cafe isn’t terribly expensive. Between my girlfriend and myself, we spent about 450 Baht for our meals, some coffee, and water. The typical price range for an entree runs about 120 Baht, but there’s options for several hundred Baht should you fancy it.
I’ll definitely go back there, as I think it’d be a nice place to unwind and get away from everything. A good spot to clear the head!
