The food was not cooked well at all. Everyone's food came to the table cold and terrible table service! Never again, disgusting.

This is one of many Patong seafood restaurants (this one half-way along the Beach Road) where you can choose from a selection of seafood, displayed on ice. You can then choose how you would like it cooked and you pay only for the seafood itself. The Tropica prices are reasonable, around 70 baht per 100 gms for red snapper, for... More

Tropica aka Creepy Green Chef's out of nightmares. First off the location that this restaurant is situated in is superb and vibrant, however lacking any sort of character beyond that. Food was that of the quality you find at 3am when your walking home from a night out on Bangla, wait staff were non-existant, overly expensive prices and this is... More

The Tropica is across from the beach near Bangla Rd. The restaurant has a wide range of meals covering many tastes including Western, European, Thai and seafood. Meals are not 'superb' and that's probably because it tries to cater for all tastes. Still, the meas are okay and inexpensive and the service was pretty good. The bar has the expected... More

Great choice of western food including French , Italian and Seafood along with a large and varied selection of Asian dishes. I was fortunate to spend Xmas and New Year staying at Tropica and got to enjoy the New Years Gala Buffet.... Sensational!!! Also great to kick back with a few beers and take in the views of Patong Bay.

The location of this restaurant is what gets its customer and you think it must be good but you would be wrong. The restaurant staff are emotionless. Its like they work in a prison. They are not happy to see you and seen annoyed that you came. :( Note that prices don't include service fee and VAT tax, so add... More

Food and location is great. Prices are ok. I don't know, but waitresses probably shouldn't smile or be kind at all. They probably shouldn't say thanks. I think this is the only place in Patong were waitresses not smiling and they don't even try to be nice. Can you emagine how "nice" is to start day at breakfast whit staff... More

Good location opposite Patong beach and taxi pickup point which was what we needed as on a tight schedule. Good range of beers and meals all served quickly, partner loved the pina colada and the 2nd one. Please note the prices you see on the menu then get added to by service charge and also VAT...
