Locals recommended this outdoor restaurant to us and we had a great night. Staff were very attentive and seafood was really good. Very reasonably priced.

I just happened to stumble on this place looking for great food in Hua Hin. We looked for the restaurant with the most locals and ChaoLay was it. I ended up going 3 times in my week stay. Great Thai Food and a huge selection of seafood. Beautiful spot right on the sea. A must I think.

The food was just ok nothing's so special even the recommendation menu!!! When you see the price you expect some good Thai seafood , came in so big potion with fresh seafood but so average with the taste.... Not value your money that much!!! Too much Chinese clients that's make the Resto too noisy!!!

Very local Thai seafood restaurant out on the pier. Hidden from most of the main drag this location was recommended by locals and didn't disappoint. Unusual combinations and preparations which challenge the senses but not the pocket book. The plentiful staff are always ready to assist and the food comes quickly. The ambience is pure local Thai with a perfect... More

Very very fresh seafood and not very expensive. Location also very beautiful. Fast service. Gets packed early in the evening on weekends. Better to book your table if going after 7.30

Had read all the reviews for this place and wanted great seafood for my birthday so decided to give it a go. Hubby had made a booking to make sure we were on the pier with a great view. We had told them it was for a birthday and they seemed to treat us special. The waiter was excellent in... More

Seafood swims about downstairs and you eat it upstairs, can't get fresher than that. Garlic squid was excellent, clams not so great. Would definitely go back

Was a very nice meal. We had stuck with the Thai food and the food was excellent. The portions are generous and the staff well spoken and attentive. Loved the view as well from their Restarant.

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.
