Rumors are the place is for sale after its operator had a motorcycle accident a month ago.

There are restaurants and bars in Korat that had been operated by foreigners for sale by the dozen now.

Why should I go to a restaurant that is operated by a foreigner when the Thais returning to Korat after they lost their jobs as cooks etc. in classy but for the lack of tourists now ailing Phuket, Pattaya or Bangkok hotels can cook as good at far lower prices?

isn't Skandi food the same as German food? Boiled rotting cabbages? Can't see it catching on amongst other expats in the area.

I couldn't tell. I usually don't visit farang restaurants. There is an excellent german swiss place in town (Chez Andy) that keeps doing well. Best was the french swiss restaurant from Gaston (Ampornswissrestaurant). He sold it due to health reasons. There is a german pizzeria in Choho (DRpizza) that has a good reputation. But I would rather go to the Thai next door (Blue Steak) who serves me two really good T-Bone steaks for the price of one pizza. And the places where you get steak&kidney pie or fish'n'chips I  neither do long for .

I have friends of many nationalities in the expat community here; I don't need to go to a farang restaurant to have at least the bartender talk to me in a language I can understand. And the people who usually hang out at the farang restaurants and bars day-in and day-out don't seem to be my kind of people.  :-[

If you're a gourmet and cannot appreciate thai food you should maybe stay in Bangkok etc. Korat doesn't have that much diversity to offer. Big Chilli, if you like mexican food, I might add.
