Lunch by the Bay

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant is on the waterfront in Naklua. At low tide the view is not very attractive & the restaurant itself resembles a large barn. Put all that aside & just enjoy the fabulous fresh seafood & quick efficient service.

A big tin shed

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant The customers who regularly eat here would be 95% Thai, mainly because tourists would never walk past or hear about it.

Location

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant

Either catch a Baht bus from the Dolphin roundabout or just hire a taxi. Believe me it’s worth the effort. 

What about the food you ask?

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant Fresh, reasonably priced & lots to choose from.

Clams with lots of garlic

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant Delicious, in Australia we call them pippies.

Prawns cooked to perfection

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant Fresh & cooked to perfection.

Why are they are so fresh?

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant Shortly before they arrive at your table they are happily swimming around without a care in the world. πŸ™‚

Salted fish, a Thai specialty.

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant Thai’s have mastered salted fish, one of their many terrific dishes.

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant Being an amateur camera enthusiast I’m more than happy with the low tide mudflats of Naklua, it provides so many more photo opportunities.

Can you imagine the “for sale” sign?

Very good Pattaya sports bar

Retox Sports Bar Soi Honey Pattaya

Retox Sports Bar Soi Honey Pattaya Retox Sports Bar Soi Honey Pattaya has more TV screens showing sport from all over the world than any other bar in Pattaya.

No smoking section

Retox Sports Bar Soi Honey Pattaya Thankfully 1/3 of the huge bar is non smoking so this suits me fine.

Still non smoking

Retox Sports Bar Soi Honey Pattaya This is the other end of the non smoking section, the service is always good just ring the bell & a girl comes running.

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall

June 8, 2017 by David Herd | 0 comments

Renovated Shopping Mall

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall is only five minutes from where I live so I am often there enjoying Starbucks or the many good restaurants.

Sichuan Restaurant

 photo f570009c-4df7-449c-8d7e-731fe16085d7.jpg This is one of the many exotic restaurants at Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall.

Delicious food

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Reasonably priced & a little bit spicy as you can imagine. πŸ™‚

Central bar surrounded by restaurants

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall The biggest problem is deciding where to eat, there are just so many choices.

I really like the hamburgers here.

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Lots of choices between Thai or imported beef & totally delicious. πŸ™‚

Thai cheeseburger

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall The cheeseburger is usually my choice, I really need to try some of the other varieties.

Strike up the band

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Most nights this band seems to be entertaining the customers.

Mango & sticky rice

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Always after a hamburger I must have this magnificent Thai delicacy. 

Fancy food trucks

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Mobile pop up restaurants add some colour & movement to the Marina forecourt.

Welcome sign is like a lighthouse.

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall I often wonder why they call the mall Central Marina as it’s 500 meters from Pattaya Bay. πŸ™‚

MK Restaurant

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Without a doubt MK is one of best Pattaya restaurants for value with a great selection of food. 

Dim Sum

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall The dim sum is my favorite closely followed by their roast duck & BBQ pork. My bill is usually under B400 or $15 aud. Take a look at their menu here.

Huge chandelier

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Quite spectacular hanging from the high ceiling in the front section of the mall.

Sushi Hina

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall

One of the many Japanese restaurants at the Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall, along with Korean & Chinese.

There is even a Playboy Cafe

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall One of the first in a chain being opened in Thailand.

If you are a Playboy…

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall This is the place for you.

 Low cost food everywhere.

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Lots of low cost food at Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall.

Another Japanese restaurant.

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Japanese is certainly the dominant cuisine at Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall.

Just one year ago

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Here is how the centre looked.

The renovation took about 8 months.

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

May 19, 2017 by David Herd

Beefeater Steakhouse & Pub

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants I’m highlighting all offer excellent Australian export quality beef as well as some other delightfull dishes. Above is the Beefeater located on Soi Diana near 2nd Road in Pattaya. You can enter the restaurant from directly from Soi Diana Inn, or from the Central Shopping Arcade off 2nd Road (across from Mike Shopping Mall).  Phone Number: 038-720-926.

Fillet Steak – ranging from 150g to 400g

Ribeye Steak – 250g

One of the things I like about Beefeater is the fact they offer fillet steak in a multiple of sizes so you can order to suit your appetite.

Beefeater Location

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Opposite the rear of Mike shopping mall.

Toast Skagen at beefeater

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

The Beefeater owner/chef hails from Scandinavia which is a bonus for me as toast skagen is one of my favourite entres, in fact I sometimes drop in for lunch on the weekend & order two. πŸ™‚

I rate Beefeater 4 Stars.

Patrick’s Belgium Steakhouse

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Terrific restaurant in an arcade opposite the Beefeater. Excellent Aussie steaks and the best Oxtail soup in Pattaya. I’m with Greg Clee and Hamish Elton.

Patricks

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants The steak is always excellent, the only downside is they overcharge for wine.  I personally think the steaks here are better than the Beefeater, however one litre of house wine is grossly overpriced at B1200, compared to B700 at Beefeater.

Desert at Patricks

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants Always a delight & difficult to choose between the crepe & the Belgium waffles. πŸ™‚

I also rate Patricks 4 stars.

Steak & Co Soi Lenkee

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants Only a 10 minutes walk from Patricks & the Beefeater, straight up So Diana, across Soi Buakaow into Soi Lengkee.

Steak & Co

 photo ca25c764-69a8-4555-a278-0e6917fb380b.jpg I assure you you will search for a long time in Pattaya to find a better steak. Aussie prime beef cooked to perfection. They serve only the finest improted Australian Black Angus, Wagyu and USDA Prime Beef. Also a wide selection of Wines, Imported or Craft beer to accompany your meal.

Steak & Co location

David Herd Thailand My day began with an innocent glass of champagne at midday at the Mantra Restaurant & Bar, and ended 11 hours later in Soi 6 with an ungainly nosedive onto the road leaving Saigon Lady. I blame Hamish Elton & Todd J Fox for keeping me captive and forcing copious amounts of beer, wine, Jack Daniels & Sambuca down my throat, all against my will of course.

Here is a TripAdvisor review on one of the well known Soi 6 bars;

5 of 5 starsReviewed 9 October 2014
I have been here loads of times over the years , what impresses me the most is the owners desire to look after his guests , regardless of whether or not you are a regular here or it’s your first visit he does look after his guests . There i was drinking away , minding my own business and a huge platter of sandwiches were being passed around , on another occasion i was off on a trip to ban chang and before we left chris ( the owner ) passed a carrier bag with beers in it !!!!! . There are thousands of bars in Pattaya , but there are only a handful of bar owners who have grasped the concept of looking after your guests , you will visit once and then you will realise what i am saying is true ……. even better , he ‘s a good lad ……. cos he is from Yorkshire ……. well what are you waiting for …….. off ya pop !! . By the way you are wasting your time talking about football with him , he knows bugger all about it ……… he is a Leeds Utd fan

Ship Ahoy!

Pattaya Beach Road Seafood Festival

The organisers go to quite a lot of effort setting up this event.

Setting up the stalls

Pattaya Beach Road Seafood Festival Full speed ahead to get everything ready by May 5th.

From Soi 1 to Pattaya Klang

 photo d2406752-f66c-4b86-91d9-4c72f0491372.jpgI’m guessing there would be around 80 food stalls.

Setting up the main pavilion

Pattaya Beach Road Seafood Festival I think this is where I will eat tonight.

OK, time to eat.

Pattaya Beach Road Seafood Festival I made one mistake, I didn’t bring any wine & they were not serving alcohol. πŸ™‚

Dinner on the beach

Busy chefs at work.

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes

May 3, 2017 by David Herd

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes

 Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes along with it’s neighbour Soi 8 is one of Pattaya’s most popular drinking, eating & partying areas. Above is the corner of Soi 7 & Beach Rd.

Hello Welcome from Silver Star A go go

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes

I was waiting for the Silver Star lady to yell out “HELLO WELCOME” which is heard nearly every time you walk past a Pattaya bar. πŸ™‚

Olala bar & restaurant

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes Above is Ola la specializing in Norwegian and Thai food.

Breakfast at Olala.

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes They claim on their website to offer the beat breakfast in Pattaya which I strongly dispute. It’s no better or worse than many other Thai style bacon sausages & eggs. The eggs were excellent, the bacon average & the typical Thai sausages I didn’t eat. The cost was B145 including toast, jam, tea or coffee. 

Eastiny Bella Vista

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes Located just behind Olala on the side road to Soi 8. Rooms here are around $25 per night if you book through THIS LINK.

Shower B20 & toilet B5. πŸ™‚

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes What a bargain, especially if you have just come off the beach.

Lots of beer bars

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes Rather quiet through the day and very busy at night. 

2nd Road entrance.

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes Soi 7 runs from Beach Rd through to 2nd Rd which is very convinient if you are travelling by Baht Bus.

 Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes  The Pig & Whistle Pub one of the popular pubs in Soi 7.

Rosie O Gradys

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes Another popular pub & guest house, book through THIS LINK for a good discount.

Happy girls at Rosies

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes Service with a smile, certainly one of the great attractions of Thailand.

Chris from Wiltshire.

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes A flashback to January 2013 when 4 Ennglish friends including Chris came to Pattaya for the first time, naturally I was their tour guide. πŸ™‚

The mob from England

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes It was a lot of fun seeing the reaction of these guys on their first trip to Pattaya.

 Flashback to Soi 7 in 2004.

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes It’s hard to believe how time flies, 13 years have flashed by.

I remember it as if it were yesterday.

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes

Drinks in Soi 7 with lovely Evie from Bangkok.

Aussie out of control

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes As it so often happens Pattaya brings out the “idiot” in the newbies. πŸ™‚

Pattaya Goods Services Directory

Pattaya Goods Services Directory

Pattaya Goods Services Directory

 Pattaya Goods Services Directory hopefully will help you find some essential services in this city. It can be difficult to know who is good and who is average. I have a few of suggestions I can personally recommend which hopefully will save you some time.

The dentist you see in the header of this post is Dr Tapasat who can be found opposite the Dolphin roundabout. He trained and worked in the U.S.A for 20 years and speaks perfect English. He takes time to talk to you and clearly explains the procedures and alternatives.

Pattaya clinic offers good value

Pattaya Goods Services Directory Clinic Lifecare Pattaya located 40 meters off 3rd road not far from Tony’s gym at 247/59 Moo 10, Sai 3 Road. They are offering a special at B999 for the standard blood tests. I added a further test for PSA which added B600.

Pattaya Goods Services Directory

Pattaya Goods Services Directory The clinic was clean and efficient with friendly staff. I arrived at 7.45 am and was the first customer. The results were e-mailed to me at noon the same day.

247/59 Moo 10, Sai 3 Road.

Dr Somsak 2nd Rd North Pattaya

Pattaya Goods Services Directory  Open 6 days at 9.30 am, a nice Thai doctor who will charge you B100 for the visit.

Location

Locksmith

After phoning Pattaya keys and safes at 10 am and the Thai owner said he would replace 2 door locks for me between 2 and 3 pm that same day. At 2.30 he called to say he would arrive in 30 minutes and he did. Within 30 minutes both locks were fitted and spare keys handed over for a cost of B1,800.
