Pattaya Restaurants & Eating Out

Eating establishments and Pattaya restaurants are everywhere you look in this bustling city. The options are vast and varied too. In Pattaya restaurants offer everything from traditional Thai and Asian dishes, to French, Italian and Japanese delights. Whether you’re looking for an authentic dining experience, or prefer to stick with familiar favourites, you’ve got plenty of choice.

The type of establishments where you choose to dine are equally diverse and varied. One evening you could be slipping cocktails at a beach front bar whilst watching the sun go down. Another night you might opt for a more casual affair at one of the road side stalls. Perhaps a traditional Penang curry washed down with an ice cold Leo beer.

Seafood is a popular choice in Pattaya because it’s caught locally and fresh each day. Seafood can be eaten in so many different forms in Thailand. No matter whether you prefer barracuda to grouper, or squid to crab. There are lots of different dishes to try. You can always ask the waiter to swap an ingredient if it’s not to your liking too. Nearly all Pattaya restaurants will serve a range of seafood dishes and you’d be a fool not to try a few during your stay.

No trip to Pattaya would be complete without fully indulging your senses. The choice of different spices, herbs, vegetables and meats which are available in Thailand is astounding. Bold flavours, spices and dishes with plenty of colour are what the Thai people do best and their food, when served how it should be, is simply out of this world.

Rooftop Bars & Restaurants

Pattaya is unusually lucky to be positioned on a west facing coastline, which means it witnesses the most beautiful sunsets every evening. Away from the chaos of Walking Street and Beach Road, a few stories up, you’ll find a great selection of swanky rooftop bars and restaurants. Watch in ore as you witness the spectacular colours produced from the sun as it sets in the distance out at sea. Gather with friends and enjoy fruity cocktails or your favourite beer on top of some of the tallest buildings in the city. Pattaya’s skyline is simply stunning at night and creates the perfect ambience for any occasion.

Walking Street

This famous mile long stretch in the heart of Pattaya is well-known for its late night drinking and entertainment. What you may not know is that it’s also a strong contender when it comes to food too. There is a surprisingly large number of Pattaya restaurants and eateries along this street. Each establishment is nestled in between the various bars and clubs. Many of the establishments are seafood restaurants and have been running successful businesses since the 1980’s when tourism first took hold in the city. Some of restaurants are lucky enough to be situated in a prime spot over looking Pattaya Bay or the pier.

There is ample choice along Walking Street to suit all budgets and tastes. From Italian, French and Indian dishes, to Russian, British and American cuisine. All are bound to tease your senses in every way possible. Visit Walking Street in the early hours and you’ll get to sample some slightly more unusual Thai favourites which are served up from portable street side vendors. Dishes and snacks include noodle soup, pigs ears as well as fried bugs, kababs and almost anything you can think of on a stick. A sample of at least a few during your stay is a must.
