“Authentic Thai at bargain price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Great little Thai restaurant on the bustling Poonsuk road in Hua Hin. There's a reason this place is always full and its neighbours are quiet - Great proper Thai food, lots of menu options, friendly service and great value for money.
A lot of reviewers have said that the Thai beef salad is great. It wasn't on the menu when we went but I asked for it and it was duly provided. Very good indeed. Have it as a starter before one of the tasty mains.
Nothing much else to say really so just go and try it. You won't be disappointed.

“Was as good as reviews said!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We had a fantastic meal at Moon Smile despite arriving late after a bit of a disastrous meal at Centara. We had Pad thai, sea bass and the food was very tasty and cooked to perfection and incredibly good value. we had tried to eat there earlier in the week but it was always too busy. I can see why!
We were the last in the place and the owner came over and spoke with us. What a character she is!
Would thoroughly recommend - its not fancy setting and you are on a very busy and noisy street but the food is Thai at its best and the staff are good fun. Enjoy!!

“Great place to experience excellent Thai cuisine....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

A great place to experience Thai cuisine. The service was faultless and the hostess spoke very good English. The food was top knotch and they even catered for our vegetarian daughter by cooking her favorite pasta dish! Total cost for 2 courses and drinks for our party of 5 was less than 1400 TB (less than £28). The Thai green curry was excellent.

“Lost its shine, but OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

Certainly still ok, but in my view it has got a little too rustic. Staff very friendly and service good . The soft shell crab we had was little oily and the oil a little old. At the end of the day not bad, but we won't head back again this trip.

“Fantastic food at amazingly low prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

On a recent holiday to Hua Hin we visited Moon smile 3 times. The food tasted fantastic and the service was fast and friendly. The cost is the amazing part as it worked out to around £5 for a main meal with rice and an alcoholic drink.
