Pattaya, like many other cities in the world, has an abundance of fast-food restaurants. While we all enjoy a McDonald’s, a Pizza Hut or a Subway, sometimes it is nice to opt for something a little less mainstream. Some of the options we may be familiar back in our home countries but are harder to come by in Pattaya. We have also chosen to leave out the distinct delicious Thai options that are available on almost every soi.
Oz Burgers are well known to anyone in Central Pattaya or who has ever visited Soi Buakhao and LK Metro. Having first opened in 2009, they have been one of the most popular “burger joints” in Pattaya. They have a great selection of burgers and are excellent value. Such has been their success; they now have another stall had Rompho Market in Jomtien providing much need nourishment for hungry drinkers!
Although lamb doner kebabs are something of familiarity to many Europeans, they are not common in Thailand. This staple food, especially on a night out is available from their outlet on Soi LK Metro and at Rompho Market in Jomtien. A selection of other food is available such as lamb burgers which should help prepare you for a long night ahead of or settle your stomach before you head home. The prices are very reasonable with the portions being just the right amount.
Close to Rompho market, brand new 2 bedroom with a view for sale in Dusit Grand Condo View
Fritkot is a small booth that can be found on the corner of Soi Buakhao and Soi Lengkee. They offering something very different to others on our list in that they sell traditional Belgium Sausage (Frikadelle) and French (or Belgium) fries. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced, so if you are in the area and feel like something different, why not give them a try?
Palace Istanbul Kebab
Palace Istanbul Kebab is located on South Pattaya Road close to the junction with Pattaya 2nd Road. Here you will find a wide selection of Turkish food that is all prepared fresh but quickly in front of your eyes. You can eat in or take away to suit you. The food is excellent and offers something a little different from regular Thai or European food. If you like something that packs plenty of taste and isn’t too expensive, this is a great option.
The Dosa Hut
The Dosa Hut is a vegetarian Indian restaurant that has an extensive menu. The food is available within a matter of minutes, and you can choose to eat in or take away. It may not be one of the first places that you think of for fast food, but that is precisely what you get. The Dosa Hut is well established, which is a good indication of the quality of the food and can be found on Pattaya 2nd Road, not far from Royal Garden Plaza.
In the building next to Central Festival, attractive rental studio on south side
Carl’s Jr is a traditional American burger joint offering beef, pork and chicken burgers. They are located in Central Festival and have food available to eat in, takeaway or for delivery via Food Panda. The burgers are excellent and a great alternative to McDonald’s or Burger King. Salads are also available if you would prefer something a little healthier, but with a burger this good, you can treat yourself once in a while.
Located on Soi 6 Thepprasit Road, 3Bz Borritoz is a Mexican restaurant offering some of the most excellent Burritos in town. Between 1 pm and 6 pm, they have a happy hour when the prices are just 55 Thai Baht for some options. The food is quick, cheap and reasonably healthy with beers also being 55 Thai Baht during happy hours.
