Great value at Foodland

Best cheap Pattaya restaurants

Best cheap Pattaya restaurants

Best cheap Pattaya restaurants, there are hundreds of them. Lets start with Foodland, a well known supermarket chain in Thailand, in each store you will find an excellent fast food counter. The quality is excellent, the food is always fresh because of the turnover, (it is always crowded) and the price is so cheap, for instance breakfast is about $2, and lunch under $3.

New shopping mall next door

Best cheap Pattaya restaurants

Mango & sticky rice

Best cheap Pattaya restaurants

The food hall at Central Festival shopping mall has a great selection of deserts including a Thai specialty, mango & sticky rice. Yesterday I ordered this after my roast duck with vegetables & steamed rice, including a clear soup for a total cost of 280 Baht or $10.20. Please click on Google + to help my page ranking.

KFC at Central Festival.

Best cheap Pattaya restaurants

I would not normally mention a fast food outlet in my post, however there are exceptions. KFC without a doubt have one of the best views in Pattaya, so while the kids devour their chicken nuggets etc, sit there and soak up the view.

 Beer Garden near Walking St

Best cheap Pattaya restaurants

The Beer Garden offers good low cost food with a wonderful view of Pattaya Bay, a great spot to dine before hitting the bright lights of Walking Street. To find the entrance you must walk past all the bars near the kick boxing. Like most Thai restaurants the menu is a huge selection of western or Thai food.

Holiday Inn Pizza

Best cheap Pattaya restaurants

I am sure you are surprised to find the Holiday Inn here, however Tuesday night is pizza special, I shared 1/2 with my brother Warren & enjoyed 4 glasses of smooth red wine from Chile, (2 for 1 before 7pm) my total cost was $28 aud, priceless.

Holiday Inn is a great place to meet

Best cheap Pattaya restaurants 

A great outlook from the Holiday Inn.

Dining in a car park.

Best cheap Pattaya restaurants

Great value Thai food here, average cost for dinner or lunch 200 Baht or $6. Next to the Alcazar carpark in 2nd road North Pattaya, opposite Soi 4, if you see a tall beautiful Thai woman here I can guarantee it is a ladyboy.

Deutsches Haus

Best cheap Pattaya restaurants

Across the road from the beach near Soi 4 is Deutsches Haus where I often have lunch & occasionally breakfast. German sausages & potato salad for 190 Baht or $6.90. Shock horror! They have just raised the price from 190 to 250 Baht so I have taken them off my list of places to go. A 30% rise seems unreasonable. 🙂 

La Boulange Pattaya French Bakery

Best cheap Pattaya restaurants

There is not a shadow of a doubt in my mind the bake the best baguettes in Pattaya. For B85 they will build a ham & salad roll to die for. Address: 245/166 Moo 9, Pattaya 3rd Rd, Phone:+66 38 414 914.

Best cheap Pattaya restaurants

  Oishi Ramen is another chain of very low cost Japanese & Thai food, I used to have lunch there at least twice a week at the Big C mall on 2nd road north Pattaya, since the renovation however they have not returned.  The Salmon and salad shown above with bottomless Green Tea costs 220 Baht or $6.60 usd, great value. Another branch at Central Festival. More information about Oishi click here

Mae Sri Ruen

Best cheap Pattaya restaurants

Mae Sri Ruen is right next door the Central festival on Beach Rd and serves good fresh Thai food at very low prices. The BBQ pork & dumpling soup is one of my favourites, add spring rolls and the price is 120 Baht or a touch over $4. 

Another favorite at Central Festival

Author: David Herd

My history, particularly over the last 30 years is dominated by overseas travel. I sold my home in Australia October 20th 2011 and have have been living in Thailand since then. I don’t know where the time has gone? It seems like you go to sleep one night, wake up the next morning, and 20 years have flashed by. Not sure how many years I have left, however I have enjoyed a wonderful charmed life, and if it all ended today I would leave this world with no regrets. I was born in Sydney halfway through the last century, started my travels in the 60s with the usual U.K. Europe adventure at the age of 20, back to Australia and worked in Sydney, Melbourne & Adelaide in Sales & Marketing with multinational companies including Sanyo, Canon & Remington. Engaged to be married 3 times and never quite made it to the alter, finally realized by the mid 90s I was not cut out for "long term relationships" so I moved to the Gold Coast in Queensland in January 1987, worked for a couple of banks as a Financial Planner, I took a year off work in 1998 to travel and never went back to full time work again, after 25 fun filled years on the Coast I packed up and moved to Thailand. What is the purpose of this blog? Well I really want to use it to record my travel experiences & to display my photographs, give and receive travel tips, comment on places I visit, restaurants I eat in and use it to replace the autobiography I intended to write, apart from all that it helps me fill in my day. :) I moved to Thailand mainly because I wanted to keep travelling while my health allowed me to, there are huge advantages being closer to all the places I want to visit. Cost of living in Thailand is around 35% of the cost in Australia, plus flights are 50% cheaper because you are much closer to everywhere. ???? Consequently I am able to travel to many more places compared to living in Australia. Having said all that, it is & has always been my intention to return to Australia when my travelling is finished, I predict this will happen around 2021.
