Despite not being the hot tourist destination the capital and its neighbours are, there is, in fact quite a bit of international cuisine in Rayong, as the culinary tastes brought in by foreign travellers made its way to the province, even if the travellers themselves didn’t.
Here’s a look at the food in Rayong.
Western and International

For German cuisine and, of course, beer, German Bierhaus at Rajbamrung Soi 6 Rd, features beer and food as authentically German as possible, which you can enjoy alongside local Thai dishes.Not far from the Bierhaus, there are some cafés, like Cake House and Happy Camper, both located on 109 Rajbamrung Rd, offering lots of good coffee, cake and other sweet treats.
The Odile Steak House, on Choeng Noen, features a meatier take on international cuisine in Rayong, with lots of steaks and options for meat lovers. Thanon Sukhumvit 38’s Spices offers pretty much what that name implies; spicy Indian food and curries.
Of course, if you’re visiting Thailand, you’ll want to try out the local cuisine, and Rayong won’t disappoint. The most popular venues for the locals include Naidol Makham Thao on 16 Khlong Khut, just off Sukhumvit Road, located in the heart of the city.
Another option, this one a bit trendier, is Terra Cotta on 109 Moo 2, which offers delicious Thai food, which customers can pair with their mouthwatering desserts, with a selection of cakes and pastries.
Obviously, the coast is the place for seafood, but if you’re more inland, you still have options. Laem Cha Reon on Riepjaifang Road is just by the waterfront, but still quite close to the town itself. This restaurant has a wide range of seafood, from fresh crab to deep fried seabass, which they can enjoy on a terrace with an ocean view.
If the inland options aren’t enough, the areas of the more developed beaches, like Mae Rumphueng, Ban Phe (Suan Son beach), and Mae Phim, have the freshest seafood, with some options for international cuisine in Rayong in the area.
