We had nothing to complain about. The restaurant is located near the beach and Bangla Road. We just had a normal meal with normal service. I'm very suprised about the reviews here. We had nothing to complain about.

Food great but very unfriendly service, probably not returning. It's shouldn't be too hard to smile at least ones to your customers and look like you enjoy working in hospitality. Hard to catch waiters to pay your bill!

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.
