“Looking Out for the tourists”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

We had a decent enough meal
here tonight but had we been a bit more patient and a bit less hungry we'd have found cheaper & better further down the market.
Don't get me wrong, it wasn't bad at all but I do feel it caters for the tourists. There weren't many thai people eating here which I guess is always a good sign.
Tomorrow we will look for a more authentic experience.
Seafood was very fresh though!

“Not very exciting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

While the environment of Hua Hin Market is great to hang out in and people watch the food on display doesn't seem to cook up quite as juicy as it looks on the mounds of ice. Bird Chili serves Thai, German and English "cuisine." The food is really cheap compared to what you'd expect to pay for the same meal in Europe and everything is grilled outside BBQ style. The service was very fast for the Thai dishes and a lot slower for the steaks. The curry sauce tasted like it was out of a packet but the seafood was plump. I felt a bit hungry after I'd finished, even though I had an entree and main course and snagged garnish off other people's plates, so I can't say the portions are huge. OK overall, no tummy trouble.

“Wasn't amazing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Seafood was ok, decent portion sizes, but I was expecting more from this place. Right in the middle of the market, very busy, would recommend one of the seafront restaurants for better food and experience.

“Good food in the middle of the night market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

We had dinner for 2 here. Salt crusted grilled sea bass and stir fry river prawns with vegetables in a tasty sauce. The restaurant was very busy but the service was good.

We ate at Ko Seafood just a few metres away a couple of nights later. It was awful. We would go back to Bird Chilli however.
