After the meal, you should try out the frozen desserts which are served in the signature crab cups 😍I recommend the Thai Tea ice cream 😁

This place provides good quality seafood, you can pick yourself live fish, shrimps, lobsters and squeeze. This place is a typical Thai style seafood restaurant.

Always come here every time I visit Pattaya, lots of parking space. avoid going there during 11.00-12.30, lots of big group tours.

Interestingly this restaurant is also listed separately on TripAdvisor under the name Pupen, which is the correct name according to the restaurants signage. I have been here 6 times now and never had a bad dish. This is not fine dining, but if you want good quality fresh seafood, and you want it fast, you wont go wrong here.

3 dishes I ordered they didn't have. And waiter placed the wrong food on the table but because I thought it was what we ordered and took a spoon out of it so I wasn't able to return it and got charged for it which was 450 baht. We wanted mango and sticky rice for desert but couldn't have that... More

Go to poo Pen restaurant if you are hungry but keep a wide choice - some ingredients will not be available except in early evening -. Quality is good, as price, but service is quite messy and the overall cleanliness should be improved. Worth trying, by the way

Perfect sea view next to the ocean. Overall, food is good. The crabs are big and delious. Price is reasonable. However, service is poor. Sitting outdoor better than indoor but outdoor seat is for 4 to 6 persons only.
