MooKata  BBQ
formerly Family BBQ

A Moo Kata restaurant or sometimes referred to as Mookata or Mookrata is an all you can eat buffet dinner affair popular with local Thais as well as embedded expats and curious tourists. And one of the reasons why Moo Kata is so popular in Thailand is because it is one of the cheapest buffet dinners in Bangkok. These popular restaurants in Bangkok are worth searching out for a unique Thai eating experience.

The culture is local, cheap, D.I.Y.  Cook, talk, eat, drink, and again and again, around 190bt pax (per person) it's a D.I.Y. buffet of meats and salad, eat as much as you wish, but any food not eat may be charged as a penalty so take your time.

You can make you own papaya salad ...  ... Longdo is a Thai word for "Please try"
The standard price includes some seafood but if you want the live feast you will have to pay more for each person on your table 

Once you have found a table staff will summon a slow cook BBQ delivered to your table, you help yourself to the food in the big kitchen, return to your table and D.I.Y.  The BBQ's include a boiling water with stock for your vegies.
The idea is progressive dinner ....
Allow around 3 to 4 hours to experience the event, note this is mainly a local culture so visitors are best advised to go with a local host.

Knowledge Base

Moo Kata translated means 'skillet pork'. But of course you have much more choices to choose from while dining. It's a hybrid of grilling and Asian hot pot cooking all in one vessel.

The cost of eating in such restaurants depends on the location. Within Bangkok the cost of eating in a Moo Kata restaurants starts around 150 baht. That's not bad at all for a smorgasbord of meats (pork, beef, chicken, fish). You can also choose from a wide variety of vegetables, noodles, sushi, a few prepared foods such as egg rolls and fried rice, fruits, ice cream and Thai sweets and desserts. A Thai meal is never complete without condiments so there are a small variety of spicy, garlicky and sweet dipping sauces to round out the meal.

For an additional 60 baht extra you'll get to add seafood like squid, tiger prawns, snow crab legs and clams to your dinner. If you splurge on the seafood you will get an extra cooking vessel which consists of a metal grate placed over a clay pot filled with hot charcoal.

The selections are in a section of the restaurant which sort of resembles a butcher's shop. Rows of raw meats are in tubs surrounded by ice cubes. The sight might be off putting for first timers. Especially when they don't like organ meats such as liver and tripe and unknowingly select it. There are plenty of marinated beef, chicken and pork to choose from.

Depending on the size of your party you get one Moo Kata vessel which resembles a funny steel hat with a trough filled with water or broth running around. The vessel sits on top of blazing hot coals contained in a sturdy clay pot. A big piece of pork fat is provided as flavoring and to lube up the top portion of the vessel so that the meats won't stick too badly during grilling.

The water around the vessel is for cooking veggies and noodles. It's okay to poach meats in it too. As the meal goes on you can drink the broth which has accumulated all the flavors on the Moo Kata.

Drinks such as Pepsi or Coca Cola run about 30 baht for a small bottle. Local beer can be purchased for around 130 baht for a liter. But if you're eating out on a budget, bottled water and ice cubes are still very cheap in Thailand.


Mu kratha (Thai pronunciation: [mhu kratha]; Thai: หมูกระทะ), also spelled "Mookata", is a combination of a Korean barbecue and a Chinese hot pot.

The word Mu kratha literally means pan pork in Thai ("mu" translates to “pig” or “pork” and “kata” to “pan” or “skillet”). Mu kratha resembles a combination of a Korean barbecue and a Chinese hot pot. It is believed to have originated from the Korean barbecue grill. It is usually used with a gas stove whereas the Thai version uses charcoal. The dining concept spread throughout Thailand and Malaysia and a lot of Restaurant introduced the Mu kratha into their business.

Preparation and serving
Sliced meat (most often pork) is grilled on the dome in the centre while the vegetables and other ingredients, such as fish balls, cook in the soup (also called Thai suki). The hot pot sits on a trough burning charcoal which grills or steams the ingredients. The best foods for this cooking method are pork, chicken, mutton, lamb, seafood, vegetables and mushrooms. The local traditional Thai Mu kratha uses different types of nam chim, spicey Thai dipping sauces.

In popular culture Since about 25 years Thailand has a lot of places offering Mu kratha steamboat as it is easy to prepare and suits with a variety of foods. In the past it lost on popularity due to hygiene concernes but experienced a comeback in Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia. This dining trend is slowly coming to Europe with a modified electronic version of the grill called TomYang BBQ.

.... Nam chim or Nam jim (Thai: น้ำจิ้ม, IPA: [nám tɕîm]) is Thai for "dipping sauce". It can refer to a wide variety of dipping sauces in Thai cuisine, with many of them being a combination of salty, sweet, spicy and sour.
Nam chim tend to be more watery in consistency than nam phrik (Thai chilli pastes). Although Sriracha sauce is commonly known as sot Sriracha in Thailand (sot is the Thai pronunciation of the English word "sauce"), it will sometimes also be called nam chim Siracha or nam phrik Siracha.
