This owner-managed restaurant has been around since 1978 and is a well-hidden gem.

The extensive menu has lots of innovative as well as traditional Thai dishes, mostly cooked to order one supposes, judging by the longish wait. Whatever the case, with the nice ambiance of the restaurant and a drink or two, relaxation reigned and tempus fugit.

After a very enjoyable dinner at Somsakdi's, we had lunch there on our last day of our holidy which seemed a very fitting way to round off a very enjoyable stay in Thailand, knowing as we did the bland food that awaited us on the long flight home to Europe. For lunch we were entertained by chatter of birds in the aviary which were audible because of quiet backstreet location though just a hundred or so meters from Pattaya North Beach.

A few words of caution - some dishes are extremely spicy so maybe it is wise to enquire before ordering!

Somsakdi is probably the best thai food in eastern Thailand. That's not to belittle his Chinese and international offerings in the 200+ item menu. It can be scarey seeing a menu that size, wondering which are good and which are fillers. Trust me, there's no filler here. I suggest you decide to go Asian or international and carry on from there.

Seems Somsak started in the restaurant biz a long time ago and cut his teeth feeding merchant marines...then worked with some of the best restaurateurs in Thailand before going out on his own 30+ years ago. The experience and quality shows in every dish I ate

The food is amazing - Well-made and simply served. My personal favorite, curriy is to die for. Tried 3 different ones. Each was a masterpiece.

The place is slightly out of the way, about half way down soi 1. Enter from either the beach road or 2nd road. You can't miss the place. After a day on the beach and the beach road insanity, somsak's restaurant is an inviting and casual place to enjoy great food at a great price
