From high end, we go to Soms Noodle House, a hole-in-the-wall type of Thai place in terms of ambiance and service. If during a gloomy weekday you find yourself in pajamas and craving for a hot and spicy serving of tom yum soup, drive to the nearest Soms branch near you (Choose between Makati and Mandaluyong.) and feel comfy in the restaurant. You almost wouldn’t have to apologize for wearing pajamas in it. The dishes are downright simple and frankly Thai without any additional pizzazz required.

This will be another location I would recommend for family trip. There are also some bars here at the beginning of Jomtien Beach, but compare to central and south pattaya, nightlife here is softer. And for the one who love seafood, at the end of Jomtien Beach, there are many seafood restaurants with fresh seafood and very good taste with reasonable price.
