I have been visiting this restaurant since 2005, and nothing much has changed in that time. It seems to be a family affair, run and staffed by the same people, the picture menu has not changed, nor has the cosy interior, the food is still of the same standard, and prices have increased only marginally. All of this is for the good, because this is a fabulous little restaurant.
I find that in Pattaya there is not much of a need to seek out vegetarian restaurants given that many of the hotels have veg friendly breakfast and dinner buffets, not to mention the salad bar at the Sizzlers in the malls. I usually walk around town with such a bloated stomach that I don't think about exploring the vegetarian restaurant scene.
So I come to Jeh 5 star, more just to see the same old friendly faces and try my favourite dish, the 'Kaeng Tai Pla Jai' which I would translate into English as 'South Thai firecracker going off in mouth'...pretty spicy south Thai soup and vegatable conooction which I have not seen on too many other restaurant menus. A meal for one comes to about 140 baht.
Friendly service, picture menu, value for money
