ChaoLay Seafood


Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

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.

We ate here on our last night in Hua Hin and wish we had found it sooner! Fresh seafood beautifully cooked, with a great view. We were lucky enough to get a table right at the front on the water. All the food was good....More

Went there upon recommendation from our hotel, the place is kind of nice with fresh seafood stalls downstairs and a large terrace on the sea upstairs, that being said the food wasn’t exceptional, yet fair I would say. They have an army of waiter ready...More

Prompt service, you don't have to wait for too long your food and the staff is very professional. Because this is a tourist place the menu is adjusted according to that. However, you can find also authentic Thai food if you can select and make...More

Fantastic organisation, impressive kitchen, and seafood menu, great and efficient service. 5 star dining this isn't. Laminated tables, and cheap Thai cutlery. However the location on a clear night with the breeze off the ocean is 5 star. Make sure you get a table outside,...More

Noisy environment, many waiters but we had to wait for a long time before our food came to our table. The food tasted good when it finally came. Will not recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

We decided to have a nice meal out and Chaolay turned out to be that place. Service was prompt, food was great and all in all a good experience. If I was to be critical it would have to be the lack of attention paid...More

We visited this restaurant 8+ years ago and had two very memorable meals so made it our first choice of places to eat this time. Still the same great food and authentic feel, sitting on the pier in the open. It is very busy and...More
