The Tankay Seafood Restaurant on Walking Street is the best restaurants in terms of taste of the food amongst the several seafood restaurants along Walking Street. I have tried 3 others along Walking Street. Be prepared that the dishes could be spicy even though you can request for it to be less spicy. However, the prices are expensive, similar to... More

We had dinner in this restaurant in the walking street and it wasn't good. Restaurant is very expensive for Thai standard and also food quality wasn't acceptable. We ordered a lobster (big one) and it was acceptable even if overlooked. We had them some giant prawns and a grilled fish and they were both tasteless and badly cooked. The only... More

To me this is the best seafood restaurant in North Pattaya. If you are looking for a fancy restaurant don't go here. But if you are looking for great tasting fresh seafood this is the place From the restaurant and the beginning of the pier you have a great view over the sea and some of the local fishing boats....

Shell Tankay is one of our favourite seafood restaurants in Naklua and we visit at least once whenever we stay there. Upon this visit we noticed that the old worn-out menu's had finallly disappeared and had been replaced by brand new tri-lingual (Thai/English/Russian) copies. Each dish is photographed so if you're not familiar with Thai cuisine you get a general... More

One of the first places you will see on the right (waterside) as you go down walking street. The pleasant and smiling person trying to lure you in is the last you will see of a smile. Even when you leave he or she will be more focused on the next sucker. Food is not better then average and the... More

Seafood was good, reminds us of China with the fresh fish and crustaceans in the tanks, select your own etc but also like many restaurants in China hygiene etc could be improved

Looking back it was obvious in the demeanor of our young waiter that serving us was going to be a chore. He made it very obvious that although we were anticipating a nice relaxing dinner on the water amidst the lovely cool Pattaya weather we needed to place our order. Once we ordered we never saw him again. My wife... More

We ordered king lobster, grill squid, fried rice and pad thai. Extremely badly cooked. Lobster and squid was overcooked destroying our food. And to find out next door restaurant selling the lobster for almost half the price.
