Ate there twice when in Hua hin. First time was deacent (first dinner in Hua hin) but the second visit was a disaster both in terms of food quality and service, and most probably got bad sea food as well. Cannot recommend. Go to Chomkluen next door instead who serve better and more tasty food with good quality service and... More

We didn't plan to go for seafood but when we found this restaurant, its atmosphere and environment drew us in. The food is good in terms of quality and price. Well operated. Have had curry crab, clear soup of seafood fried noodles with brown gravy. Fried veggie is abit salty. An enjoyable dinning experience.

The whole fish was by far the best dish, with lots of flavor from herbs and coconut milk etc. Crab in glass noodles also good. The non chicken cashew was mostly fried batter pieces.

We ate here 4 times in a week which shows how much we love this place. The seafood is to die for, try the buttered prawns, or the deep fried garoupa, Absolutely fabulous. It is very popular with the locals which says everything. We will return!

We were sent here by the hotel for seafood. It didn't disapoint. Great location on an old pier over the sea. Open air dining. There is a fish market underneath. The menu covers any kind of local seafood done however you want. We ordered shrimp and squid. Both very good, served by friendly and enthusiastic staff. If you want good... More
