delWhen I first walked into De Del Boys Fish and Chip café I suddenly had the feeling of deja vu. I was taken back to a time when I used to frequent such establishments in London’s East End when on an early morning start or on my way home from an all-nighter.

It has the appearance of your quintessential greasy spoon, a colloquial term for a reasonably priced café that specialised in fried foods, but Del Boys has so much more to offer.

The café is situated on Nahsathani Road in a long line of small shop houses opposite the Government hospital. The shop stands out with its bright yellow canopy overseen by a large picture a yellow Reliant Robin emblazoned with the name of the café. 

The premises are made up by two shop units, one housing the traditional ranges for cooking the fish and chips and keeping them hot and the second unit being the café dining area.

Del Boy’s Only Fools and Horses Styled Sign


The café is owned by Del Boy and his Thai partner Eain. Hailing from Hackney in London’s East End Del has brought his traditional home cooked food to Buriram.

Having trained as a chef whilst in the British Army, Del he has passed on his knowledge to Eain who does the cooking under his watchful eye.

Del has produced a comprehensive menu catering for those of us that enjoy quality home cooked food at reasonable prices.

The menu revolves around his signature dish of fish and chips but, there are many other classics on the menu such as, sausages and mash, mince and mash, liver and bacon, Cornish pasty and the much loved chip butty, plus a selection of pies and much more. 

A Wider Angle From Outside


On my visit I sampled the fish and chips and my wife the sausage and mash. The fish was a john dory coated in Del’s special batter, the chips were homemade and I also had a serving of peas.

The batter was crisp and light and complimented the flavour of the fish which was cooked to perfection, the portions were generous and the price of 180 baht represented excellent value.

Del’s Signature Fish and Chips


My wife was presented three large Cumberland sausages and a large helping of mashed potato. The sausages were covered in sautéed onions and accompanied by a serving of gravy. She was full of praise for the dish which at a price of 190 baht again represented excellent value for money.

The café is open from 9am to 5pm daily, but from 5pm until 10pm he stays open but only as a Fish and Chip shop. However if you still want Del’s other food after 5pm you could also visit his other establishment, Tom & Jerry bar, situated in Buriram’s Main Square.

Classic chip butty’s are also available

Del has big plans for the café, he soon hopes to be producing his own homemade pies and serving traditional British Sunday roasts at very competitive prices.

Liver, Bacon and Mash

Del Boys is not a fine dining restaurant, it is a cafe and a very good one. For those of you that like traditional British home cooked foods at reasonable prices give it a try, for those of you who have not tried such fayre, here is your opportunity.
