Low Season? Not at Central Festival's Food Park


Evil Penevil

Recommended Posts

The bars of Pattaya may be suffering from a lack of customers, but that doesn't apply to the Food Park in the lower level of Central Festival Mall on 2nd Road. The place is crowded each and every day, mostly with Russians, Thais and other Asians.

I took the pics below at about 2.30 p.m. on March 24. It wasn't (EDIT IN to add negative) prime time, but there were an awful lot of people eating there. The supermarket next to the Food Park was also doing a roaring trade, same-same with McDonalds, Burger King, KFC and the pharmacies.

And the food at the Food Park? It rates a unenthusiastic "OK" from me, but considering all the better options close by, I can't see any reason to eat there. The crowded long-table format doesn't appeal to me, either. In a year of living at View Talay 6 (next door to Central Festival), I ate twice at the Food Park and that was because a friend wanted to eat there.

Fuck me.........it`s as crowded as ever,reminds of my days at the bootcamp chow halls.Hope I never end up so hungry that I have to grab a meal there.........Kiss Food feels like a gourmet resturant compared to this.

I have eaten there quite a bit, but I find that the portions are small and I end up spending more than if I ate at a regular restaurant.

But the selection is good and the g- friend has many choices.

Food sucks.... If I was hungry and didn't want to ride to big c for the food court I would have eaten at level 5 restaurants . Almost Same price and some really good noodle soups ..

its BETTER to be PISSED OFF then PISSED ON!!!..

Eating's for poofs, plenty of Chang available to satiate! 

My Pattaya budget is perfectly adequate as long as I don't spend any of it

It's crazy expensive there, I don't know why it's so popular.

As far as the number of people in town go the low season is not as low as it once once. During my first low season the streets were quiet. In recent years there have been a lot more people around. The only difference is that there are less people in the bars That is probably not a good thing.

I remember eating here when it first opened and getting a seat was no problem at all, actually the place was deserted at times. But now, its almost impossible to get a seat where Russians occupy about 80%, not that I'm bothered as I prefer to eat elsewhere.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
