Super travel tips, all road tested by David Herd. I'm an Australian guy who moved to Thailand in 2011 & still travel the world as often as possible.

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

February 19, 2017 by David Herd

Sunday lunch at The Edge

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant is a wonderful dining experience particularly on Sunday. It is in direct competition with the fabulous Mantra at the Amari hotel. Further on in this review I will endeavour to make comparisons between the two.

Fresh seafood

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant Fresh seafood is of course the star of the show, however there are many more special offerings guaranteed to delight you.

An impressive choice of Oysters

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant There are 4 or 5 variety to choose, mainly from France.

 My first course

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant Oysters, crab, prawns, caviar & fresh white bread, I always find it difficult to get past the seafood counter. 🙂

Did I mention caviar?

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant Certainly one of my favourite delicacies, salmon Roe.

 Lots of sushi & sashimi

 photo Hilton Sunday buffet B1500 6.jpg As I said before, it’s hard to get past the fresh seafood. 🙂

Sushi

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant Too much sushi is never enough. 🙂

I travel to Japan every year and the Hilton sushi is certainly high quality.

Outside seating

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

Catering for smokers & those who want to get closer to the view.

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant A beautifully designed kitchen & restaurant.

Check out my review of the Hilton Sky Bar. 

BBQ duck & ribs.

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant Funnily enough the six baskets contain 6 different variety of Chinese buns, a little bit of overkill I feel. I would much prefer to see some Shumei & prawn dumplings similar to what’s on the menu at the Mantra.

BBQ seafood station

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant You really need a big appetite to cope with this fabulous buffet.

 Hardworking chefs

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant This is one of my favourite photos from Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant.

 Pizza

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant No matter what you fancy it is all here. 🙂

The Bakery

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

The bread here is excellent.

An excellent cheese selection

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant I was at Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant on Sunday February 19, & sadly I overindulged & could not fit in any cheese. 🙂

An amazing choice of deserts to finish.

Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant Put this great buffet on your list, & many thanks for visiting my Pattaya Hilton Buffet Edge Restaurant photo blog.

I have given a lot of thought to which is the best buffet, the Hilton (with the salmon caviar) or the Mantra (with the Alaskan crab), & the verdict is Mantra by a short 1/2 crab claw. 🙂 

However I have noticed they now serve the clawless variety of Alaskan crab, please Mantra bring back the claws. 🙂

Full house

Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar It’s certainly a good idea to book a table in the high season.

 Aussies in paradise

Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar Wayne Croker with the rabbit ears is from Brisbane enjoying a short golfing holiday in Pattaya, & Hamish Elton lives & works from his home office on Pratumnak Hill. Here is the view Hamish has when laying by his pool. 🙂

Hooters Pattaya opening night

Hooters Pattaya opening night was on New Years Eve 2015 so we decided to make it our first stop when seeing off the old and welcoming the new year.   

Check out those gorgeous eyes

 photo Eyes - Copy.jpg It’s probably lucky we don’t know what she is thinking. 🙂

From another perspective

 photo Gorgeous.jpg Here is a test can you see the very large bottle of Absolut Vodka? Vodka, what Vodka? I don’t see any vodka.

Great room with an upstairs sports bar

 photo IMG_1682.jpg The are lots of seating alternatives here including outside overlooking Pattaya Bay.

Call me old fashioned but I prefer to sit quietly at the bar with a cold Asahi draught and take in the eye candy.

Girls were busy at Hooters Pattaya opening night

 photo IMG_1697 - Copy.jpg The girls all looked great in there Hooters outfits, there seemed to be an even mix of Russian & Thai girls.

If I had to pick a favourite

Gorgeous Russian babe

It would probably be this beautiful lady.

Booze delivery

Hooters Pattaya opening night I don’t think we will run out of booze ant time soon at Hooters Pattaya opening night.

Forget the booze, show us the girls.

 And the beat goes on

Hooters Pattaya opening night band

Hooters Pattaya opening night The band and the selection of live & recorded music was excellent.

Did I mention the girls?

Well my friends as you can clearly see the girls were excellent as well at Hooters Pattaya opening night. 🙂

Amari Hotel Beach Road Pattaya

November 11, 2015 by David Herd

Looking north to Wongamat

Amari Hotel Beach Road Pattaya Amari Hotel Beach Road Pattaya Ocean Tower has fabulous ocean views and beautiful grounds around the pool area. Add the wonderful Mantra to the mix and you will wonder why you would ever stay anywhere else.

Naklua Road

David Herd Thailand

Naklua Road has lots of good restaurants and beer bars. Travel about 5 kilometres along and you come to the fish market, well worth a visit.

Relax at the pool bar.

Amari Hotel Beach Road Pattaya A beautiful setting swim up to the bar and order a cocktail.

Lap pool, I don’t think so.

Amari Hotel Pattaya I would struggle to swim one lap, I’ll stick to the other pool where I can order a Bloody Mary. 🙂

Amari Hotel Beach Road Pattaya

One moment sir while I check for vacancies

Amari Hotel Beach Road Pattaya Friends of mine who are regular Amari customers always comment on the excellent staff, they certainly give their guests the five star treatment.

Royal Cliff Hotel Pattaya Here I am with my friend Rob Symonds on our first trip to Thailand in 1980. The hotel was only about half the size in 1980 and had only been open for 2 years. In those days there was a separate building with housed a ten pin bowling alley on the ground floor with a typical Thai soapy massage parlour on the first floor. There were at least 50 gorgeous ladies behind the glass and you simply chose the one you wanted. 🙂

Sabai Resort Pattaya budget hotel

Sabai Resort Pattaya budget hotel Sabai Resort Pattaya budget hotel is in a great location in beside Big C shopping mall in north Pattaya away from the madness of Walking St. Yet it is only a 10 Baht 10 minute bus ride along the beach to get amongst the action.

My favourite room 311

Sabai Resort Pattaya budget hotel I stayed at the Sabai Resort many times from 2004 until I moved from Australia to Thailand in 2011. I still often book friends in when they visit Pattaya. There are 3 pools and many different room styles, the average price is around $60 usd per night, you will get the best rate possible through this link. If you would like to compare other alternatives check out my budget hotel post here.

Atlantic Bar

Atlantic Bar Just across the road are some good beer bars, in particular the Atlantic bar is very popular indeed, in July 2015 they increased to the size by 50%, check it out here.

Cherry Bar

David Herd Cherry BarAlmost beside the Atlantic is the Cherry Bar another one of my favourite haunts since 2003.

Otherwise go next door to Big C where there is a great choice of restaurants and Cafes. Please note Big C is closed for renovations until Xmas 2016, however the supermarket is still open.
