As we all know, there is an abundance of quality restaurants in Pattaya and when it comes to Japanese food, you will find that the story in no different. Although the Japanese community in Pattaya isn’t quite as dominant in the city as it was a decade ago, they are still here in their numbers and their food is enjoyed by everyone. Here are 6 of the top Japanese restaurants in Pattaya.
If you are looking to experience quality Japanese food then you won’t go far wrong with Benihana which can be found in the Royal Garden Plaza on Pattaya 2nd Road. To say that their menu is extensive would be an understatement, it’s quite simply huge! They have everything from Sushi bars to teppanyaki tables. The food is superbly presented and not surprisingly, this is a very popular venue.
Although Zen is a chain of restaurants, you will find the one in Central Festival is always full. They again have a large menu and it is conveniently located. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and the staff are always happy to advise you on dishes if you are little unsure. They are certainly cheaper than some of the other options but nevertheless, the food is still of an extremely high quality, just perhaps lacking in the intricate presentation that you get in Benihana or Ronin.

Ronin was something of an unknown just a few months ago but has quickly grown in popularity. Located on Soi 16/2 Naklua Road, they pride themselves on the food that they produce and the ingredients that they use. The menu isn’t as large as some of the other options but what they have is superb and presented magnificently. The Japanese style gardens add to the ambience and as it is a small venue, it is advisable to book in advance.
Located on Soi 5, Pattaya Beach Road, Anego is probably the most authentic of the Japanese restaurants on our list and focuses very much on attracting Japanese customers. As you would expect due to their client base, the food quality is excellent, well presented, and the quality of service compliments this.
Tuna Ichiban is located in Harbor Mall on Pattaya Klang and is cosy and friendly establishment that serves quality food at reasonable prices. Again, they have quite a large menu and due to the fact that it is in the Harbor Mall, it has something of a more children friendly atmosphere. The service is good and the presentation of the food is again stylish.

Tsunami Sushi Buffet
They have an ‘all you can eat’ buffet for just 599 Baht which appeals to many people who want to try a range of Japanese dishes. Located on Soi Chaiyaphruek, it is perfect for those living in Jomtien. As you would expect being a buffet, the presentation isn’t quite as good as some of the other options but the food quality is good with plenty of options available.
