Surf kitchen is situated looking over Jomtien beach with its traditional beach hut style architecture. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The toilets aren't too great but nothing too bad for Pattaya. The food served outdoes everything else, especially the Tom Yum, which is the best I have tried anywhere else in the world. The crispy shredded beef is... More

Surf Kitchen is one of our favorites in Jomtien and we eat dinner there at least once each time we visit Jomtien. Sometimes we even go just for dessert. The beef stroganoff with fettuccine is one of my absolute favorites. There is a good selection of non-Thai and Thai dishes. My husband always likes the selection of fish offered on... More

Always full, have to wait average 15 minutes for a table. The service is fast and take credit cards. Try the mango salad, steamed sea bass, pineapple rice. We returned a few times, it is a very popular place

One of our friends recommended this as a place to go in Jomtien beach. The whole group were still craving green curry. This place did not disappoint. For a table of 12 people with no reservation we were easily seated. Orders were quick and drinks arrived promptly. All food was tasty and got the thumbs up. Even those who aren't... More

It took us nearly 10 hours to get to pattaya so anything would've tasted delicious by then. Though the food here was genuinely good. Watch out for the spice though, even though we asked for "little spicy" we thought the dishes were pretty hot. I had to order a watermelon juice to cool down. What we liked was that they... More

Ok place with ok food, nothing to call home about. Great location but lots of foot and motorbike traffic on the sidewalk. If you miss this place looking for it, its ok there are plenty of average establishments around.

We pass here every day from the beach on the way the market so we decided to have a late lunch. I love their mussels so that's what I got and my partner had fried seafood in basil Thai style that is his favorite. Have had other dishes here for dinner so I know the food is excellent here as...

I was walking on the beach when I saw this busy restaurant so i decided to try it. I ordered Laab kai and some fried vegetables. Laab was very sour and the vegetables was ok. Service was good.
