He has travelled the world for nearly four decades as a chef and his delicious comfort food menu includes Italian, Spanish, Mexican, Japanese and Thai influenced dishes. Up until 2016 Harlan was based in Hong Kong, where he earned 2 Michelin Stars and for the record was the no.1 international celebrity chef there, he even told us himself!
Comfort by Harlan is a fun place to be, the intention here is to create a wonderful eating and memorable sensory experience for all who indulge, making you feel relaxed and your hunger satisfied; until your next visit that is.
Harlan opened his latest restaurant in Pattaya after touring Thailand and deciding he wanted to create a place where friends could meet, enjoy his fabulous selection of international dishes, listen to great live music and talk to the man himself.
This venture has been created with the mind-set that it is primarily for the fun and enjoyment of sharing good food prepared in an open kitchen before your eyes. It seems to be working!
His journey as a chef began in his uncles New York restaurant kitchen, when he was just 14 years old.
Things stepped up a gear after a work training placement in Florida followed by an apprenticeship at the internationally renowned, Montreaux Palace Hotel in Switzerland.
His journey to Asia started just over a decade later at Shangri La’s China World Hotel in Beijing. He also travelled to Bangkok and studied Thai cuisine for two years as well as opening his first of many restaurants in 2004. (If your lady wants Thai food, she will definitely be impressed here!)
Just to give you an idea of what you’re letting yourself in for when visiting the restaurant, he recently bought a Harley Davidson and had it sprayed with a Pink Panther theme. So, if you like world class comfort food and great company, come and dine at Comfort by Harlan and be entertained by one of Pattaya’s most vibrant personalities, the one and only Harlan Goldstein.
