The Five Star Vagabond

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.

North Pattaya restaurants

Dolphin roundabout Naklua Rd

North Pattaya restaurants

 North Pattaya restaurants I’m referring to are all in Naklua Rd. Starting at the Dolphin roundabout & up and over the hill until you reach the fish market.

Best Seat restaurant

 Best Seat restaurant overlooking Dolphin roundabout opened in 2014 and serves Thai food and very good Australian steaks.

Dusit Thani Hotel

North Pattaya restaurants

On the opposite side of the road is the upmarket five star Dusit Hotel which has quite a choice of good restaurants. I regularly visit the Peak restaurant for Yum Cha which I believe is the best in Pattaya.

For a great hotel room rate at the Dusit just book through THIS LINK.

The restaurant his hidden away on the 9th floor, best to take the elevator at the swimming pool end of the hotel.

La Ferme

North Pattaya restaurants


La Ferme is an interesting restaurant which is Part of the Woodlands hotel in Naklua Rd near the Dolphin roundabout in North Pattaya.  Upmarket decor and reasonably priced food, they specialize in Chicken which the name suggests. My favourite is the Honey Glazed Chicken with pepper sauce, only 400 Baht or $15.  My only criticism is they overcharge for a glass of house wine, 150 Baht for a half measure. It’s a shame they are so mean with the wine because the food prices are good value. You used to be better off buying a bottle of Chile wine for 1100 Baht, but that was 2013, now the cheapest bottle is 1600 Baht and the average price is 2000, pour it yourself because they will try to push you to finish hoping they can sell you another bottle. :-(   164/3 Moo 5 Pattaya-Naklua Road, phone +66 38 426 825 .

North Pattaya restaurants La Baguette

North Pattaya restaurants

Definitely a favourite spot, the best ham croissants in Pattaya.  This ajoins La Femme and in part of Woodlands as well.

La Baguette

North Pattaya restaurants

I am here three times each week, ham croissant & coffee for around $5.50. Their Latte is quite disappointing, no where near as nice as Coffee World or Starbucks, plus they have just replaced their cups with a smaller size yet still charge 110 Baht for it.

 Siamese Cuisine

North Pattaya restaurants

Hamish Elton at Siamese Cuisine. Straight across the road from La Baguette is this delightful new restaurant which opened late 2015. The Lobster Bisque is often on the special board and I think it is the best in Pattaya, or at the very least equal to Mata Hari.

Excellent Australian steak at reasonable prices. Out of all the North Pattaya restaurants this was my favourite until I discovered Leckerle around the corner in Soi 33.

This night we had excellent Thai food, I guess it helps when a local orders.

Fish markets

A great variety of fresh fish at the Naklua rd fish market, choose live fish and have them cleaned while you wait.

A great place to buy seafood.
