“Maybe we ordered the wrong dishes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Went here twice during our holiday. The first time we had tempura king prawns and fried rice. The food was nice but nothing special. The second time we went (to give it another go due to all the rave reviews) the chicken noodle soup was tasteless and still not wow if you added the different spices they provide on the table. I also ordered the garlic and pepper fried ribs from the 'recommended' menu, but they were that salty my lips and tongue started to go numb. On both occasions we also found their fried rice had a slightly smoked/burnt taste to it.
We much preferred Na Na Place a couple of doors down where the food was exceptional.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

The food was good and cheap, but the service was not too friendly the night we went and we felt that we were rushed to eat and get out ... so didn't return

“Great food, need to book,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Amazing food, great street life. Busy but worth the wait. Lobster, fish beautiful. Sizzling dishes amazing. If you like it hot, this is the place to go. Don't be put off by the decor, best street food in Hua Hin.

“LOVELY STAFF”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We ate here 2 times upon the recommendation of a reviewer. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent, and very very tasty. They had a lot of choice. There was so much food when it arrived, you could easily share dishes to keep costs down.
