Simple Simon

Here at Pattaya Dining Guide we focus on all the restaurants in Pattaya, be it fine dining, pizzeria’s or Thai street food. Our featured restaurant today has been a Jomtien legend for many years.

Simple Simon’s is located in Soi 5 off Jomtien Beach Road, and most people will know it as Soi Immigration. Down at the beach end of the soi, the open fronted restaurant / bar / guesthouse is easily located with a blue frontage.

Mostly frequented by ferangs and their Thai partners, Simple Simon’s is famous for Sunday Roast dinners and All Day breakfasts. Although classic English and European food dominates the menu, do not discard the Thai menu as it really authentic and great value for money.

The Shop
