Go upstairs to sit on the terrace overlooking the water. Choose carefully some dishes better than others. The steamed rock lobster was cooked beautifully but overpowered by too much garlic. On the other hand the prawns with salt and butter sauce were worth a return...More

The restaurant is right on the coast and should be an easy 4 or 5 stars. However the place is absolutely horrible, it’s dirty, it has plastic chairs, the staff are rude and arrogant and don’t even look at you. There were fifty empty seats...More

There are a number of good restaurants along the wharf area. Saeng Thai is a very good option. We tried Chaolay Seafood as it was recommended by one of the local residents of Hua Hin. It was an excellent recommendation. Before climbing the steps into the main restaurant you pass a large selection of fresh fish. Once on the pier, there is an army of staff to seat and serve you. My colleague and I ordered a scallop appetizer, a whole fish main course and a large fried rice side dish. The food was very good and the pricing reasonable, less than $30 for all of the food and 4 beers. Chaolay is worth a visit.
