Somtam Pa Praphai is the most recommended restaurant, by Bangkok native-Thai visitors, for Eastern Food restaurant in Pattaya. It is recommended to have fried chickens when having Somtam because they become more tasteful when matching up in this restaurant. Customers sometimes still need to wait when coming to the restaurant at noon though. Somtam Pa Praphai Pattaya is now located at Soi 18 Naklua, which connects to Wong Amat Beach.
Somtam Pa Praphai was a small restaurant, but it is changed location for expanding its area so that the restaurant can take care of customers more than before. Its atmosphere is just normal, not as high-class looking as some restaurants. There are many tables and seats available under a large yellow tent cover.
In fact, the taste of food from this restaurant is arguing by two group of customers. One says that the taste is so good especially, Somtam and Fried Chickens, whereas the other group says that the taste is just normal, where it means that the restaurant should not be highly recommended. Well, this could be difficult to find out the answer because it seems to be dependable on personal preference. By the way, it is a crowded restaurant for E-San Restaurant, and you might have to try it by yourseft if you like this type of food.
