Pattaya, the 10th of January 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: Born in Scotland, Hugh Millar originally studied as an Industrial Chemist, but decided that this was not his career path. He entered the restaurant and hotel industry early in life and jokingly says that his first job was washing dishes in the kitchen. However, Hugh later went on to manage restaurants and hotels in England for some very big international corporations such as a Blackpool Hotel owned by the “Real Status” group. Later he owned a restaurant at Inverness on the shores of Loch Ness, Scotland, but did not see “Nessie” and the low season was always very quiet.

 

So, like many expats, he came to Thailand for a holiday in the quiet times, fell in love with the Thai Kingdom, and settled in Pattaya, where he has remained for over thirty years. He reminisced that back in those distant days there were very few good restaurants, so everyone went to hotels to obtain high quality meals. Over several decades, Hugh Millar has managed hotels such as the “Hotel Andrew,” and restaurants such as Jomtien’s well known Poseiden Restaurant. With so much experience behind him he is not planning any drastic changes to the Manhattan Restaurant, and wryly commented, – “If it is not broke, then do not fix it.” However he believes that the 4-year decline in the restaurant trade is no permanent, and that business will return to normal.

After only a few days on the job, Hugh is fitting in as if he has been there for years, with the same friendly, efficient Manhattan staff, and introducing himself to both the old and new clientele. This included an early introduction to the excellent Manhattan’s Jazz Band and a famous Japanese saxophone player, Mr. Suzuki, who had just arrived for a much loved return visit, with some of his classic jazz playing.
