Jingthing

Jomtien 2Nd Road And Soi 5

Recommended Posts

I have heard that this area is targeted as a new "Night Market" - the stall holders to take down their tables at midnight.

So will be a thriving investment for any Thai stall holder and Ex-pat bar owner.

I heard that too.

Like I said there is a mix.

Also in the area, a newish Italian restaurant that is quite decent, fresh pastas/pizzas/dinner plates (across from the Bali place) and just today noticed a new American food place called Bourbon Street (I doubt related to the famous Bangkok place) opening in the old Seafood Emporium location. It is quite clear to me this entire area is going to boom. This being greater Pattaya, of course it includes beer bars.

As others have mentioned there is a lower priced Indian place in the beer bar area and some old favorites like the Mr. Moo joint. Around the main market there are a lot more Thai style stalls opening. It seems like something new every week now.

One thing I am really liking so far is the really good mix and healthy balance of typical Thai food market places and expat/tourist attractions. Maybe you can say that about a lot of areas in town, but I am feeling something new and special beginning to happen in that area.

Hi Jingthing, can you give me a better idea where this area is please as we will be coming for our usual months holiday in november and quite like going down to Jomten for a change, although we can find our way round pretty good its difficult sometimes to know what roads and area's are called :jap:

Do you also like the mix of water when it floods? and all the dust about when it's dry? and all the accidents at the junction there? Personally i think that area is a sh*thole and feel sorry for the people that have really nice homes in that nice ( but overpriced ) moo baan that is close by, forget the name, Jomtien Park Villa's or something like that?

It's View Talay Villa's, the perimeter wall of the development is right next to the new bars and restaurants, I saw it coming two or three years back and sold before it became a problem.

View Talay Villa's, knew it was something like that, i had a look there about 6 or 7 years ago, although very nice the plots were small and i thought overpriced....

Bet you're happy you sold then...

There's worse: the View Talay Residences used to be rather nice places on a quiet back street. The balconies are now about 2 yards from Jomtien 2nd Road.

I wouldn't live there if someone paid me to.

The new bar/restaurant/market area is fine to visit though. I expect to go there quite often when I finally move to Jomtien (assuming I can still walk by then).

To be clear, my OP wasn't really about the topic of buying a residence in the area, pro or con. It was about an emerging neighborhood that is offering stuff not otherwise available in the city. Flooding? It's been a wet wet season. Did you see the flooding in Pattaya this year?

BTW, the name of the decent Italian owned restaurant that I suggested roughly across the street from Bali Breeze is La Merenda. It's a rustic little place, but charming, many Italian customers, and also sells Italian breads to go, etc. Dinner plates in the 200 range.

Bali Breeze is nice Went when it first opened. Must try La Merenda. The Pig and Whistle was nice as well for English food. The place is certainly livelier than it was a year ago. Which is good as not everyone likes going into Pattaya all the time.

Its great how people slate an area without actually living there. I'm in Jomtien Park Villas and I never hear a thing from the bars. We chose to stay in Jomtien because Pattaya didnt suit us but I dont go slating it . Each to there own.

JT please clarify to prevent ambiguity.

"For 2 persons, 10 dishes a person 300"

is 300 Baht total for 10 dishes each person

or

300 Baht each person for 10 dishes each person

As i mentioned somewhere in one of my old posts, if you want to eat decent italian food, always go to an italian restaurant, making sure there are actually italians working there....

I did try many different places, but all the times i have been disappointed, no wonder last month watching tv between one thing and the next, i saw one of those thai shows where they do lots of gags, and when one of them mentioned to the other his thoughts about "italian food" the response was the other thai sounding like if he was vomiting, and with all the food pretending to be italian around, that's an understandable reaction, i even noticed some of the local bakers putting lots of sugar inside the bread because they think that for us, our common bread is just a cake, and they describe it as "cakes" in the thai language too.

However, i do still try sometime those places, especially when they look promising, in the hope to find someone that can cook the right thing in a proper manner and with the right ingredients....

Good topic JT

I usually stay in this area when down to the sea, and like to see positive development! Did check out the bar area a couple of months ago, and will definitely have a closer look at the new restaurants at next visit. :D

HUH? That menu is from Bali Breeze. They have mostly Indonesian food, some Dutch dishes for obvious colonial reasons, and yes a very few "international" favorites like Spaghetti Bolognaise. It is not an Italian restaurant! In my view, it would be daft to order spaghetti there.

The rice table prices are PER person.

I have changed my holiday location from central Pattaya to Jomtien also two years ago. I normally stay in the Jomtien Beach Penthouse (Soi 9) where it is quiet and the beach mostly sees families.

And I agree that the Jomtien area has developped pretty well with shops, restauants etc... even have to say that the best restaurant I found in all Pattaya so far is Bruno's (Swiss chef... high quality of food and service... fantastic wines.... very high prices...) and down Thapphraya towards the beach, they have some nice bars like the country bars (just like the music there...)

My ex-GF opened two Thai massage shops there this year (no, NO sex, NO rebates for you guys... ;-) ) and tells me she has pretty much regulars who live in that area, therefore even in low tourist season, she's making good money with them, better than her shops in Central Pattaya

When time comes, my plan is definitely to find me a place around Jomtien... given it does'nt get worse in the next 2-3 years..

Don't fully understand your post viz Pig and Whistle, but a branch of this has just opened in Jomtien, near the Jomtien Complex. Came across it a couple of days ago and thought it was a nice change. If u want to go to an up and coming place, then Jomtien Complex fills all the boxes for restaurants. Glad I bought in Jomtien now. The new Thappraya road has made a big difference and there's even a TOPS Express.
