What about Yamato on Soi 13/1 aka Soi Yamato?  It's been a fixture in Central Pattaya for years.

First Japanese place I ever ate at in Pattaya. Hoping to impress my squeeze for the night. She quite liked it. Me, not so much. Just a tourist trap. never went back. Have to say that it wasn't expensive though.

So you don’t eat Japanese in Thailand?

No, haven't been in a Japanese restaurant, in Thailand for 4-5 years. Not only are they not that authentic but usually way overpriced too.

Interesting.  Inexpensive is definitely not a word I would use to describe Yamato now.  I personally don't eat sushi so I will take your word on it but my buddies who I was in Japan with a couple of months ago really liked Yamato.  

 

My non-sushi cooked food at Yamato is delicious.  Best I have had in Pattaya and I eat Japanese food multiple times weekly.  I have been to other good Japanese restaurants in Bangkok but not Pattaya.  If Yamato wasn't on the more expensive side I'd consider eating there much more often.

At least Yamato is authentic with a Japanese sushi chef and owned by Japanese.

I like Fuji, the avocado salad is great and a lot of the other dishes are pretty good.

I wasn’t any more impressed with the food I had in Japan.

Absolutely the best food in Thailand is to be found in Thai "tin cup" restaurant's. No menu, only one dish on offer.

 

Stopped at one for lunch, in a small town, en route to Koh Chang, with a friend over on holiday from the UK. He insisted that he didn't like Thai food but agreed to try it. Stewed pork with rice, 40 baht.

 

The restaurant was heaving, all Thais (always a good sign). All trestle tables and we joined 4 RTP guys, having their lunch. We all cleared our plates and my friend had a second plate. When paying the bill he asked me what kind of pork it was. I pointed out to him that they only served meat from pigs heads. He baulked at that but had to admit that it was the best food he'd eaten in Thailand.

 

Bets food in Thailand ! 55555+

How funny can be people who think that they have found any best food anywhere. It's ridiculous.

Thinking that all RTP are not scum also is.

Why would I remember the name of the town or restaurant?

Maybe because this is why we have a brain ?

It is rare to meet a poster who dislikes Thai people more than you - is it a surprise they wouldn't tell you anything of value? 

 

He does not dislike them, he just knows the truth about them more than you will ever know it seems.

Thai know nothing about food and many other things if not all. As easy as this.

Considering this a thread of Restaurant Reviews in Pattaya, WE still await your first one.

Americans know a lot about food because there are so many large groups of different cultures living in America and opening restaurants.  Europeans the same as it is easy to travel to many countries and many countries have a tradition of fine food like France.  Thais have many different ingredients to work with and a background of many other Asian cuisines and are especially good at home cooking.  The Brits traditionally had the most tasteless food and the least knowledgeable palates in my experience probably from a lack of spices and the naval food traditions and the long period of rationing after WWII.  I never ask a Brit for opinions about food.  Thais are knowledgeable unless you only associate with the dregs of society and they don't know anything about anything in Thailand as well as in any country.

Jingcheng Chinese Restaurant shouldn’t be compared to a one-dish place if you’re discussing the availability of a menu. As you know, more than many of us, most Chinese places (with that Avenue place look anyway) offer tons of different foods, organized by appetizer through desert, price, time of day, cooking styles, spices, food groups and more, more, more. If you don’t study the menu and winkle out old and new favourites then your tummy will have been done a disservice.
