ChaoLay Seafood

Thanon Naretdamri, Hua Hin, Thailand
Improve this listing
Ranked #96 of 370 restaurants in Hua Hin
Cuisines: Seafood
Dining options: Reservations, Late Night
Description: There are a number of good restaurants along the wharf area. Saeng Thai is a very good option. We tried Chaolay Seafood as it was recommended by one of the local residents of Hua Hin. It was an excellent recommendation. Before climbing the steps into the main restaurant you pass a large selection of fresh fish. Once on the pier, there is an army of staff to seat and serve you. My colleague and I ordered a scallop appetizer, a whole fish main course and a large fried rice side dish. The food was very good and the pricing reasonable, less than $30 for all of the food and 4 beers. Chaolay is worth a visit.

We ordered fish, crayfish, tom yam soup with prawns, vegetable and crab meat curry. It costs about THB 1500/USD 50. It was fresh, clean and nice.

My wife and I had just relocated from Koh Samui and was recommended by the staff at Star Property... What on earth is going on!! The service was shockingly slow! TWICE I had to walk to the bar to get the waitresses/waiters attention! The food was dirty and not prepped properly, crunchy muscles and excrement still in the sack on... More

Expansive menu. I had seafood with curry paste in coconut which was great. Friend had deep fried sea bass which was excellent. Dined in group of 5 and with a few drinks and tip it worked out to 500 baht pp. Had been recommended this restaurant by locals as being the bets in town it was a great recommendation.

We were lucky enough to visit this restaurant with a Thai girl which enabled us to eat the best seafood on offer that night. We had unusual delicious dishes like squid with egg and whole fish with very spicy but different sauce. Would love to revisit but not sure if we would be able to order fish as good as... More

Worth a visit if you are in hua hin on an evening. Ambience is not what this place is about, let the food do the talking. Order lobster or very large prawns which is served with an awesome hot Thai dipping sauce.

This is the fourth pier on the right walking from the Hilton. The restaurant pier is on two levels and the kitchen is staffed by about 20 people! This is busy, busy, busy. The staff are super efficient but we couldn't see why this pier was so busy when the ones on either side were just as good and nowhere... More

The food here was outstanding, especially the prawns. The night we were there though was very busy and staff couldn't cope with the demands of the customer, quick enough. This place would be much higher on the rankings if they just got the service right. The food is fantastic and very cheap compared with other restaurants. As a smoker I... More

Visited with a friend the other night (April 13) and had one kilo of tiger shrimp, papaya salad (Sum tam Thai) and glass noodle seafood salad in addition to rice and drinking water. All food tasted fresh and great and the total bill was around $42 all in. Great location on a pier on the water in the downtown area... More
