Thanksgiving this year is on Thursday 28 November, and as always, there are plenty of places that you can enjoy your usual turkey with all the trimmings. Although this is traditionally an American celebration, as this is Pattaya, it is something that can be enjoyed by everyone regardless of their nationality. Here are just eight of our suggestions for where you could celebrate Thanksgiving this year.
Dicey Reilly always knows how to throw a good party and can be found on Pattaya 2nd Road as part of the Avani hotel. They offer turkey, ham and pumpkin pie to get you into the spirit of things. Dicey Reilly has an excellent reputation for their Thanksgiving fair, so if you are thinking of going along, it might be advisable to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Tigglebitties is situated on Pattaya Tai 17, which is the road that takes you from 3rd Road to the Thepprasit Road. It is regarded as being one of the best American restaurants in Pattaya, so it is hardly surprising that they are famed for their Thanksgiving food.

Casa Pascal on Pattaya 2nd Road is an excellent option if you are looking for a more upmarket venue to enjoy Thanksgiving meal. The quality of the food, as always will be unique, with an extensive drinks menu that will complement your meal. The prices are a little higher, but this reflects the quality of the food and is ideal for a special occasion.
The Sportsman on Soi 13 Pattaya Beach Road can always be relied upon to serve up some excellent food whatever the occasion. They will be serving the traditional turkey along with all the accompaniments that will have been freshly prepared in their kitchen. The Sportsman isn’t the largest of venues, so it may be wise to book well in advance.
Hemingway’s in Jomtien Complex is an excellent option for those that live in the Jomtien area of Pattaya. It is a large venue, so bookings may not be required but are advised. Again, like all the other venues, they will be serving all the traditional food. Hemingway’s is a family-orientated bar, so an excellent place to take the kids to celebrate this special day in the calendar.
