With East Pattaya covering such a wide area we decided that it was only fair to include some of the restaurants that didn’t get a mention in Part 1. This isn’t to say that those in the first instalment are better or vice versa, just that we appreciate that some may have been missed that thoroughly deserved to be on the list.
Nong Bistro is one of the gems of the Darkside and is not surprisingly owned by Nong. The menu consists of both European and Thai dishes that have been expertly prepared by the head chef who has worked at some of the top establishments in Pattaya. The food is excellent and the service is polite and efficient therefore giving you everything that you could wish for. Nong Bistro can be found on Soi Siam Country Club.
Suggestions Cozy Restaurant
Located on Soi Nernplabwan, Suggestions is a restaurant that definitely lives up to its cozy name. The staff are very welcoming and specials board is enough to whet anyone’s appetite with a choice of more unusual dishes such as ostrich or venison. This is predominantly a Belgium restaurant although a wide variety of European and Thai food is also served.
Aroi Pub Resto
You will find Aroi Pub Resto on Sukhumvit 89. The restaurant is very modern in its appearance and serves some excellent food with cuisine from around the globe available. From Wednesday until Sunday a range of buffets are served that represent excellent value – especially if you have a healthy appetite. They also have an extensive wine list along with a wide selection of Belgium beers.

Baan Na Garden
Baan Na Garden is located around 400 metres from the Wat Wai Yai temple in Huay Yai. The restaurant opened in its current location in 2016 but has been in existence for around 20 years. This is one of the best Thai restaurants in the area and diners can enjoy their food in a very relaxed atmosphere.
Kung & Pinky
Located just off Soi Siam Country Club, Kung & Pinky is small but good quality restaurant with very friendly staff. It may not be a fine dining restaurant but the food is excellent and great value. The menu is quite large and consists of both Thai and Western dishes.
Tropical Bar is situated on Soi Khao Noi and is owned Bert who used to have Tropical Bert’s on Soi 6/1. This is a fantastic family location and a popular choice with expats. The food is of a good quality with a wide range of European and Thai dishes available all at very reasonable prices.
The Retox Outback Bar certainly deserves a mention and lives up to the high standards of the other restaurants in the group. The portions are sizeable to say the least and the menu is varied consisting mainly of Western dishes with Thai food also available. Retox Outback is on Soi Siam Country on the way to Mabprachan Lake.
Loft Pub & Resort
The Loft Pub & Resort is located around Mabprachan Lake and is another of the popular expat haunts. The venue is great for families and has an excellent grill. They have a large menu that caters for even the fussiest of eaters as well as offering great value for money.

The Fisherman Café offers a superb selection of Indian and Thai food and is probably the best Indian restaurant in East Pattaya. Again located on Mabprachan Lake, Fisherman’s offers excellent food, excellent service and excellent views. There is little surprise then that it is so popular with locals.
As the name would suggest this is a Tex-Mex restaurant that can be found onSoi Siam Country Club. The food is excellent and is very reasonable value. Everything is fresh so you can really get the genuine taste of Mexican and American dishes.
