Went two days in a row!

Before arriving in Hua Hin we were told that we needed to go to Moon Smile & Platoo. We went with a group by way of a tuk tuk. We arrived at an open air resturant. Immediately we were greeted by a friendly face and urged to take a seat. We ordered 4 appetizers, 4 beverages and 5 main dishes.... read more

Moon is excellent in her very small kitchen. She makes her dishes as spicy as you like. Good prawn Pad Thai. Staff is very friendly

After reading the reviews, we decided to give it a try! Service was good. Portions were big for the price! The red curry was very delicious.

The food is good although the servings are very small. A Pad Thai with two prawns is a bit on the disappointing side, same for the Indian Curry. The staff are pleasant enough but cram people in at all costs and get people to move to other tables to get larger groups seated. Doesn't add up to a pleasant dining... More

Went here for dinner based on some good TA reviews. Great call - I am not renowned for 5 star ratings but the whole experience was brilliant and we left with a big smile! This small restaurant opens straight onto the pavement on a side street behind the Hilton and looks nothing from the outside. However, what it lacks in... More

Restaurant was full when we arrived for dinner. Told us 5 minutes to wait for table which looked highly unlikely. Probably waited 10 then they reorganised existing patrons and seated 10 of us. Food was very good and amazingly cheap. Cost us A$6.50 per head. For that price it exceeded our expectations.

Have eaten here twice already on this holiday and the food has been delicious. We first visited last year and was very impressed then as well. Great friendly atmosphere as well. Excellent value for money too! There are to many things to recommend but I'm sure whatever you order will be spot on! Will certainly be back before we go... More

Everything we tried was excellent. While I am not a curry guy, the red curry was wonderful. We tried several different dishes (prawns in black pepper and garlic, sum tom, etc). All were wonderful and prepared fresh. Beer was cold and the place was packed, for good reason. Eat here, you'll enjoy it very much!

We have been visiting Hua Hin since 2005 and we we're lucky enough to find this restaurant on our first visit. Over the years the restaurant has gained a well deserved reputation. The food and service has always been first class. We always make this our first and last stop on our visits. We also like to go in the... More
