“Great view and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

The sunset view was truly spectacular. Its a pity the balcony seats were all taken when we were there. Do make a reservation to secure those few seats.

The food was also great. Ordered a grilled fish in banana leaf and was astounded that the whole fish was deboned. Also ordered a broccoli with scallops and a Tom yum goong. All the seafood were fresh and succulent. My only gripe is that there were only 5 broccoli in the veg dish. I guess the focus is more on the scallops than the veg.

Service was good too. They have a tuk tuk service which will pick up and drop off at your hotel for free. But theres still a flight of stairs you have to climb to reach the restaurant after the tuk tuk drops you off.

To be honest, the price is rather steep compared to other restaurants as Lae Lay charges service charge and GST unlike other restaurants. Our bill came up to 1501 baht for 2 pax with 3 dishes and 2 cocktails. But I think the food, view and service is deserving of that price.

Amazing food with authentic taste n price was reasonable. The waiters were amazing n were always on the watch for whats needed on every table. Polite n always with a smile. The sunset view from the hilltop just completes it all. What can i say....
This place is a must visit!

Went there for my bday dinner. Nice view, great service, free shuttle. They even sang me a bday song and gave a free fruit platter. Portions are bigger than expected. Recommend place!

“Beautiful place, through more expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

Spectacular views, brilliant food, great service. Recommend you book a seat by the edge so you can enjoy the entire view.

Prices are high by Thai standards but very very good food. Cost us about $150 for 5 but we really splashed out with bottle of wine and cocktails.

Free tuktuk pick up which is a nice touch.

Still good value, recommend highly.

The view is great. Food were above expectation. Service is excellent. Very attentive and friendly. Price is slighty on high side but worth it. Really enjoy our dinner. Please reserve in advance in order to get the best seat. You can ask your hotel front office to make reservation for you. The restaurant offer free pick up from your hotel and return also.
