Last night dinner

Very good located, on the sea side, it offers a huge choice of BBQ seafood. The quality of the food is excellent and the price is logic. The only problem that I noticed is that one is very crowded then, sometimes, you can have problem to find the proper table. Most probably we will go there... read more

The beach is dirty from plastic and bottles and they don't clean as they don't think is their problem. So sad to see the owner not keeping is beach front dirty. Just care about ur money with a fake smile. Thai smile.

The food here is great, U have eaten here numorous times and the food is always on point. The staff is a tad bit lazy and hard to locate sometimes, but after you order the food comes fast. Prices tend to be on the high side, but the food is some of the better food on the island. They have... More

If you are in Hat Sai Kaew area, this restaurant is a must. The food is good and cheap, fire show at 8.30pm is very entertaining. Had a little fun with everyone after the fire show.

We ate here two nights in a row during a recent stay. There doesn't seem to be anywhere on Samet that has really excellent food, but Ploy Talay is about as close as it gets. Very fresh seafood at reasonable prices. A shame that their seafood dipping sauce isn't better, as that makes or breaks a Thai seafood restaurant, but... More

Fiery, energetic and memorable, Ploy is a superb way to experience Samet nightlife. The BBQ is good and decently priced, the fire boys' performances and games are very entertaining and the Ploy Pub and Disco next door ensures the night ends on a loud note.

Restaurant located in front of the beach has very delicious food and reasonable price. The most remarkable thing is Fire Show which consist of 12 skillful people. They make the customer have fun and sometimes they force them to join the show. I think everybody enjoys while having dinner. Only water pipe (sisha) was very expensive.

I have dined at Ploy Talay Restaurant on Saikaew Beach on Samet Island before and have found the food no more than average quality By the way, if you feel like desert, skip the Ploy menu because and enterprising young Thai sets up a roti stall on the beach alongside the restaurant and knocks up delicious rotis to order.

If you're not a group of asians buying beer towers, don't bother, because they don't want you. Non-existant service. Trying to flag down a server will earn you a dirty stare before they ignore you and wave you off. My "BBQ" squid was served quickly and was luke-warm, probably been sitting there for hours, and without the advertised salad on... More
