Pattaya is home to fantastic restaurants bringing us the taste of all four corners of the globe. However, sometimes, we want some tasty and quick. Of course, there are the multinational brands such as McDonald’s, Pizza Hut and Subway, but for this article, we will focus on the non-franchise restaurants and stalls that bring us some exceedingly tasty food.


Oz Burgers

Oz Burger is the “go-to” burger outlet in Central Pattaya and was first opened in 2009 on the corner of Soi Buakhao and LK Metro where there still are today. They now have a second outlet at Rompho Market and serve excellent burgers. They now offer a wide selection of patties that are all excellent value and very filling! Oz Burgers are a fantastic alternative to more household brands.

They can be found in Central Festival on Pattaya Beach Road, and it is a restaurant where you can eat in or takeaway with delivery also available with Food Panda.

In addition to kebabs, they also offer lamb burgers and other fast food items that are all excellent value and the perfect way to begin or end a night.
