Pattaya Beach Restaurants - North Pattaya

Where and What to Eat in Pattaya Beach

From curbside cuisine and greasy burgers to five-star gourmet, Pattaya has it all. The range of food available here is as diverse as the people who flock here. As easily as you can mingle with Europeans, Russians, Middle Eastern people, Americans, Asians and of course Thais in Pattaya, you can enjoy food originating from their homelands. Everything from schnitzel, falafels and kebabs, to British pub grub, homely Italian pasta and fresh seafood can be found in the city's eclectic restaurants, many of which are run by expats who've set up shop here and brought their culinary know-how with them.

There's a lot of competition for your business so prices are generally very competitive. Fast food, like every corner of the modern world these days, is also widely available. McDonalds, KFC, Burger King, Pizza Hut and Subway are all in attendance.

Another great, as well as educational option in Pattaya is street food. Choose carefully (ideally somewhere busy where the food is cooked freshly in front of you), and you can enjoy exotic cuisine in a no-frills al fresco setting – and usually for less than 50 baht! Roaming vendors and temporary stalls sell noodles, grilled meats, seafood, fresh fruit and other oddities all across town.
