Pattayanis Greek Taverna offers excellent Greek food in central Pattaya.

It's located about 40 meters in on a small soi off Soi Bukhao.  It 's certainly not hard to find, but it can be easy to miss if you're riding a baht bus along Soi Bukhao, so take a look at the screenshot from the map on Pattayanis' Facebook page.  You can also find a complete menu there.

Last night I had the Greek salad and finished every bit of it.

 Fresh feta cheese atop a large portion of sliced tomatoes, onions, cucumbers and green peppers plus a few black olives.

 It was seasoned properly and dressed with high-quality olive oil.

I ate it with pieces of fresh pita, perfect for  catching the olive oil.

 I also had dolma, grape leaves stuffed with rice and herbs, also very tasty.

The friendly owner was on hand and we had a good talk.  Pattayanis has certainly captured the spirit of a Greek taverna as well as the authenticity of the food. I really liked the bright lighting as I'm not a fan of dimly lit restaurants.

Prices are very reasonable.  The Greek salad cost 250 baht, the dolma 180 baht and the pita 40 baht. If you enjoy good conversation as well as good Greek food, be sure to stop by Pattayanis. I needed a meat-free day after all the beef I've ben eating recently, but I'll definitely be back to try the lamb and pork dishes.

Have walked past the outlet a few times last trip, never seemed to be too busy either, maybe the location is a bit of a disadvantage.

Thanks for the review, Mr Evil - a good read as usual.

 

Excellent Greek food? Surely a contradiction in terms :)

 

I have mixed feelings about Greek salads.

They seem to contain whatever some Greek wants to put in it.

The only constants are feta cheese and olives.

Where was the lettuce in your salad?

Surely there should be olive oil and white wine vinegar on the table, so you can dress the salad yourself.

That is always how it is presented in Greece. (It's best to apply the vinegar first).

Coming from a Greek background myself i have to say the food looks tasty though the dollma'thes (not sure on english spelling) could be a larger & the vines leaves wrapped a little better.

 

Other than that its a definite visit for my next trip i say!  :GoldenSmile1:

 

Thxs for sharing Evil...

Yes, there are local variations within Greece regarding the traditional rustic summer salad (it isn't called Greek salad in Greece).

Add to that the many international variations and there's certainly a lot of very different salads that go under the name "Greek salad."

A traditional rustic Greek salad doesn't contain lettuce. It's usually dressed with extra virgin olive oil and maybe a sprinkling of lemon juice. The variation with lettuce and oil and vinegar dressing is what you often get under the name "Greek salad" in restaurants outside Greece.

 

There's no real right or wrong about it, it often comes down to the diner's preference and what is exactly meant by "Greek salad," i.e., 1) a salad inspired by and bearing some resemblance to the Greek original; or 2) the original rustic salad,  horiatiki salata (χωριάτικη σαλάτα).

Evil. If you are the owner why don't you say it. Seems a bit lame pretending to be a customer.

 

I still like the look of your food and will give it a try. As far as lettuce goes in a salad (from above post). In Australia they just use it to make the salad look "bigger" than it really is. So no problem from me

Mr Wombat, you are just flat out, utterly wrong.

 

Evil has presented many excellent restaurant reviews on this board. He is a solid contributor to this board, one of the top restaurant reviewers.

I don't know crap about Greek food.  But that stuff looked good and I'm going to find out.   :GoldenSmile1:

Ok I apologise for being flat out utterly wrong.

 

He just seemed to know a little bit too much about the makeup of "traditional rustic greek salad" to be a punter.

 

But as I said, I will give the restaurant a try anyway.

I've been to Greece 5 times, and don't think ever got served the same Greek salad twice.

Some were delicious, and others were meagre to say the least.

The worst was in Rhodes town, in the days when meal prices were capped by the Greek government.

It consisted only of slabs of raw onion and tomatoes, with a piece of feta on top.

(Yes, it was so crap I remember it after all these years :) )

 

Every restaurant / taverna in Greece I've been to had olive oil and wine vinegar on the table.

I had the moussaka last night. It was excellent and well worth the 280 baht!

Layers of egg plant, potatoes and minced meat, subtly spiced and topped with a fluffy bechamel-type sauce the Greeks usually call "cream."

And then we got a couple of bouzouki songs from the owner. He also poured the diners complimentary glasses of Efe raki from Turkey. It tastes like ouzo, but is very smooth and packs quite a wallop at 90 proof.

It was as close as you can come in Pattaya to a real Greek taverna experience.

Nice. By the way, there's another Mediterranean restaurant on Soi Bongkot--a little hole-in-the-wall place.

That's the exact location on Google maps, but it wasn't there when the picture was taken (in Oct 2012).

Thanks for the tip!  I'll try it.

 

Last night I had another good meal at Pattayanis Greek Taverna. I have a pent-up craving for Greek food as I haven't had it much since moving to Pattaya.
 
I had the saganaki (fried feta cheese - 150 baht) and the kefte macaronada (Greek meatballs with tomato-basil sauce over spaghetti- 290 baht).  My dining companion wasn't hungry and ordered just two home-made village-style sausages, plus sampling my meal.
 
post-6485-0-52617800-1405324628.jpg
 
The saganaki was delicious with a squeeze of lemon.

The sauce for the kefte and spaghetti was also great- very fresh taste.
 
post-6485-0-26986100-1405324633.jpg
 
The meatballs were crisp on the outside, moist and tender on the inside and subtly flavored with herbs.

The sausages were also good. You can't go wrong at Pattayanis.

Any suggestions on where to park not too far from it. Soi Bokao can be a nightmare for parking!  5 mins walk is fine.

There is paid parking on Soi Baokao on the right just before reaching soi PP. I usually use a bike for this place and park outside. Had this two days ago whilst my companion had the leg of lamb.

 

(Picture stolen from Evil but same thread so hope you are ok with that Dude)

    • 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.
