We always like to see alternative businesses when looking for venues. The catering market such as eating houses is saturated with Thai and western restaurants, some are excellent, others average but generally speaking, the standard of food is good in Pattaya.
For this one, Full House, brings to you a taste of Korean cuisine, delivering something a little bit different.
The restaurant opened in 2008 and currently employs eight full time staff. The owner, Sunyung Kim, comes from South Korea. She moved to Pattaya the same year her restaurant opened its door for the first time.
The restaurant has four trained chefs, who carefully and lovingly prepared the food for their many customers.
The restaurant is located on Soi 5, which connects Beach Road in Pattaya to Second Road, where the famous Alcazar Cabaret Show is located. It is surrounded by apartments and nearby hotels, providing it with a good customer base and catchment area.
The street features a lot of greenery in the form of plants, trees and bushes, adding to its attraction, typically during day time.
Once you locate the venue, you climb five or six steps to the entrance. There is a menu for you to peruse before you enter, so you can decide if this restaurant is suited to you and whoever you are with.
Inside you will discover a stylish setting, featuring dark wooden tables and chairs and a similar style reception area. The decor is pleasant where again they make use of dark wood and white paint, with framed paintings on the walls.
You may see or smell the aroma of food cooking as you pass customer’s tables, for like many Thai venues, there is often small cookers on the tables, where you can heat or cook certain items as required. You will also noticed that the food is served mainly in bowls, which is designed for sharing.
The restaurant is laid out in a traditional Korean setting with seating for around 50 customers.
The bill of fare may be different from what most westerners are accustomed to but if you enjoy Thai food and its diverse offerings, you should enjoy Korean cuisine too.
The menu is written in Korean and Thai with English translations. For example you can select Pork Neck or Pigs Feet. Staying with the pork theme, they have a tasty Seasoned Pork Rib or you try a similar style but with Beef.
Steaks such as sirloin are available for those who may not wish to sample Korean style dishes.
Many of the dishes make use of noodles and rice with colourful vegetables and tasty sauces.
Soups, mains and desserts are all available from an extensive menu.
Customers can sample a beer all the way from Korea or one of more common ones found in Pattaya. Wines, spirits or soft drinks are also available for you to choose from.
The venue brings something different for tourists and expats to try. If you are someone who enjoys sampling the cuisine of foreign countries then this is a must visit venue.
