Grandma’s House is a nice little Thai restaurant in Permas Jaya (part of Johor Bahru).
Shrimp dish with iced tea
The food is good and inexpensive. A meal is about 9 to 15 MYR (US$5).
The interior decoration is the best part of of the place in my opinion. This is a real old TV turned into a fish bowl with live fish swimming around.
Carabao Thai Restaurant is located in Johor Bahru’s CBD, next to the New York Hotel.
The restaurant has only outdoor seating. They spray mists of water and use shade and fans to help keep things relatively cool. I think the setting is the best reason to chose Carabao, as the food is only decent as is the service.
Even though it is downtown they do a nice job of situating the restaurant on the back of the lot with some shade trees so you do get a bit of a feel of escaping the city. They also have a large parking lot.
Tera Thai restaurant is in an old house.
Tera Thai restaurant is near downtown Johor Bahru. Still some taxi drivers have a problem finding it – even with an address. It really shouldn’t be hard it is about 2 km away from the Thistle hotel but it in a quiet area with not much else around (it is near Sri Mulia Condominium and to get to Pangsapuri Adamai Condo, you have to pass the restaurant).
This was a great beef dish at Tera Thai, but I can’t remember what it is called.
It is a very nice restaurant with a great atmosphere and good service. The food is very good.
