5 of us enjoyed delicious dinner at Pupen last night. The most spectacular dish was a whole sea bass cooked in lime and lemongrass broth, and served in a fish-shaped dish with candles underneath to keep it hot. Oyster omelette, scallops, sushi and egg fried...rice were all outstanding. Moreover, this wonderful feast cost less than ThB 500 a head!More

I drafted this review as soon as we left the property - last month - but had an account 'fail' on my mobile. Must though say overall that this place is... AMAZING! I can't believe that there are recent reviews giving 1/5 scores based on...our experience. We rocked up early - which I do think may be a secret advantage - and had a good choice of tables plus we were able to park in the car park right at the front. All good so far. We grazed through the menu and I'm not going to lie... we went 'large'. Everything we ordered was delicious and the oysters were the size of omelettes... it was a fight to get through all the food. Fully prepared for a hefty bill, we fell about laughing when the total came in at less than half of our lowest estimate. I wouldn't ever describe it as cheap eats, but rather some of the best and most fairly priced seafood we've ever had in Thailand. I'm guessing some of the negative reviews may be based on folks who were expecting either a smaller, more intimate venue or a service style akin to a formalised dining experience? Pupen is neither... but it is absolutely EXCELLENT and again, if you only have time for one such meal whilst in the area... make it this venue. Thank you - a great dining (and service) experience.More

This is my first and last time here. We waiting for a while. And when the food came, but we still haven‘t get the Cutlery, plates and glasses. We asked for that more than 4 times. But the Waiter and Waitress ignore us. But the...Prise is ok. We ordered a soup and it taste like water. Fish cake is full with oil. I will say you can get the better one in supermarget. I will not come here again. Es ist mein erste und Letzes mal hier. Zu lang gewartet. Das essen ist schon lange gekommen, aber die Teller, besteckt, gläse war noch nicht gekommen werden. Wir haben mehrere als 4 mal gefragt. Aber die Kellner hat uns ignorieren. Aber Die Preis ist ok. Die Suppe schmeckt wie Wasser. Fisch Cake ist voll mit öl. Im Supermarkt finde ich ein besseres. Ich will nicht mehr hier kommen. นี่เป็นครั้งแรกและครั้งสุดท้ายกับร้านนี้ค่ะ รออาหารกันมาพักนึงแต่ก็เข้าใจว่าลูกค้าเยอะ จนอาหารมาถึงแล้วแค่แก้วน้ำนังไม่ได้เลยค่ะ จาน ช้อนส้อม ถ้วยก็ไม่ได้ ถามพนักงานมากกว่า4ครั้งจนคิดว่าร้านนี้ให้ใช้มือกินแล้วค่ะ พนักงานก็ไม่ได้สนใจอะไร ราคาไม่แย่นะคะ แต่รสชาตอาหารนี่ก็… ได้อยู่ที่แปลว่า… ต้มยำรสชาตเหมือนน้ำต้ม เอาตรงๆนะคะซื้อบะหมีกึ่งสำเร็จรูปมาต้มใส่กุ้งปลาหมึกยัวอร่อยกว่าค่ะ ทอดมันปลาน้ำมันเยอะมาก ส่วนตัวรู้สึกว่าทอดมันไปซื้อตามร้านสะดวกซื้อกินยังร่อยกว่าค่ะ ประทับใจมากค่ะMore

Everything about this place was awful. After waiting nearly an hour in queue, we were seated at filthy table with left over food bits all over seats and on floor under table along with used masks and tissues all over the floor under our table....When we attempted to order crab at 1530 hours (330pm), restaurant was completely out of stock. Would have been nice if they notified patrons in queue that the restaurant specializing in crab does not have crab. Bottled beer was served hot (like 30C). Grilled squid was served way under cooked. Toilets were absolutely filthy and look like they had not been cleaned in weeks. And service was very very slow.More

Huge menu selection and the service is excellent. A little pricey compared to other places but well worth it in my opinion.

Went for food recently and was advised by local taxi driver this was recommended.It was very busy when we arrived as it was Valentines Day with lots of Thai families and a few westerners with music being played. Prompt service by a very friendly waiter...with drinks ordered immediately. The seafood was fantastic with us ordering 1kg of steamed crab,mussels in a cheese and cream sauce,the must have tom yam kung,plus we had the sushi salmon salami plus a big bottle of Japanese Asahi beer. The five seafood dishes plus the drinks came to around BT1800 which I thought was tremendous value. Overall a most pleasant evening,great food,pleasant ambiance and fantastic staff.More

Me and my wife had some time over from the kids, so we went to Pupen althouh we knew that it isn't the place with best value for money. There seem to be some kind of hype going here among some thais. Normally you find...them at better food places. Strange! The service is below normal - lots of people. The "usual" seafood dishes are below average. Price is much over average. Some dishes a catastrophy. I had a Rock lobster termidor plate. A layer of cheap cheese that would any Pizza Hut chef proud had to be removed before finding the lobsters. There numerous fantastic seafood places to visit before this.More

It is a restaurant beside Jomtien Beach. In the afternoon it may be a little hot, but in the evening the atmosphere is very good. Clear sea view spacious shop mediocre cleanliness There are enough seats to choose from. Not very crowded even during the...covid period. There is a wide selection of food on the menu. The food is a bit pricey, but it's worth it. Fresh crabs, firm clams. and the food is very fast The taste is sour, salty, not sweet. Good service, attentive, enough parking spaces.More
