This place gets quite full in the evenings, so come early, the food is excellent and very reasonably priced and quite a good selection. Recommended.

Ok place with ok food, nothing to call home about. Great location but lots of foot and motorbike traffic on the sidewalk. If you miss this place looking for it, its ok there are plenty of average establishments around.

We pass here every day from the beach on the way the market so we decided to have a late lunch. I love their mussels so that's what I got and my partner had fried seafood in basil Thai style that is his favorite. Have had other dishes here for dinner so I know the food is excellent here as...

I was walking on the beach when I saw this busy restaurant so i decided to try it. I ordered Laab kai and some fried vegetables. Laab was very sour and the vegetables was ok. Service was good.

Excellent service and very fast, you can choose from large menu, pizza and even Japanese food available. Very popular for expats and there is a reason for this. Always full in the evening. Very reasonable prices

I have eaten here regularly throughout my time in Pattaya, and yet again it has not disappointed. Great location looking across Beach Road Jomtien at the ocean. Staff are very friendly and happy to provide fans to cool your table guests. Ice cold drinks and a good atmosphere have made this my most visited venue on the Jomtien strip. The... More

I liked this place; had a nice feel inside with a tree canopy. Comfortable and not crowded. Very friendly staff. Food was quite tasty and authentic Thai, not farang food.
