7 Best Restaurants in Pattaya Thailand

Pattaya is a multicultural city and plays home to an incredibly diverse restaurant scene.

Almost any type of food is available: traditional Thai, Scandinavian, Tuscan, French and more.

To help with your choices, here are seven great restaurants in Pattaya that you won’t want to miss:

Moom Aroi

A two-story restaurant that fronts the sea, Moom Aroi is perhaps Pattaya’s largest—and most popular—restaurant. Reservations are recommended, but the phone call is worth it. Try the curry crab stir fry or the stir-fried squid with salted egg yolks and you’ll understand.

Preecha Seafood

The décor does not offer a great deal, but the food at Preecha Seafood is amazing—good enough to draw a large local clientele. Live tanks decorate the entrance and diners sit on a terrace over the water. Try the baked scallops or the chili salt mantis shrimp.

Mantra Restaurant and Bar

With individually decorated dining spaces and open kitchens—with chefs working in full view—Mantra offers Thai, Indian, Chinese, Japanese and Mediterranean dishes.

The Glass House

A beachfront restaurant with great ocean views, The Glass House offers Thai seafood and international fare, including deserts made fresh at the in-house bakery.


Bruno’s is a longtime local favorite, offering Thai dishes, European cuisine and a walk-in wine cellar. Try the pan-seared scallops and the Australian rack of lamb.

Hopf Brew House

Though there is plenty of beer at the Hopf Brew House, it is also a family restaurant offering European comfort food, from pizzas to German pork knuckles and sausages.

Cabbages and Condoms

Part of a project started in the 1980s to educate the population about family planning, Cabbages and Condoms is a family restaurant—nothing inappropriate—offering an ocean view from an elevated deck and a diverse menu. It may be the most unique restaurant in Pattaya.
