New Japanese style café near Bang Saen beach becomes popular

Bang Saen, Chonburi –

A new Japanese-style café near Bang Saen Beach is now becoming a popular café among local and domestic tourists.

A video tour of the cafe can be seen here:

The café manager Mr. Payapop Suwannachot, 35 told Pattaya Unplugged and TPN media, “My friends and I love to enjoy Japanese food and drink. We have visited Japan previously and miss it deeply.”

“Before we opened the café, we (Payapop and his friends) sold Japanese ramen noodles on a food cart along the beach. However, during the Covid-19 pandemic, many of us ran into trouble and decided to try something new. It was a risk, and we used the last of our savings to do so, but believed that it was the right time to do something new to set ourselves up for a bright future as tourists return to Thailand and Chonburi, both domestic and foreign.” Payapop stated.

“So, we decided to turn a building that was for rent into a Japanese café. It took about eight months to complete and be decorated into a Japanese style. We sell various kinds of Japanese drinks and food.” Payapop said.

“We have been promoting the opening on our Facebook page at ‘Nomisuke Matcha Ramen’ before we officially opened on October 5th, 2021,” Payapop stated.

“We have lots of customers who visited us on the first day. On Wednesday, (October 6th) customers lined up since the morning in a long queue. We didn’t expect a lot of customers like this, however, it is also an original idea for the Bang Saen beach area.” Payapop added.

“The Japanese style café ‘’ is located on Wonnapa Beach near Bang Saen Beach and near a 7-Eleven store. The cafe is open from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. every day.” Payapop concluded.

Ms. Arpaphon Homkrajai, 27, and Ms. Kwanjaras Kaewka, 27, who are customers, told TPN media and Pattaya Unplugged, “We feel like we are in Japan when visiting this café. Their Japanese food and drink selection are delicious too. We recommend others to visit the café.”
