Good food, good ambience, only let down is the slow-ish service. Would recommend and go back, regardless! The wait is worth it :)

Dear CaitlinTheCloud. That’s correct. No one is perfect, 100% practically impossible. As for the service: You as a 13-17-year-old girl can probably even faster cooking and serve than we do. Seriously, cooking time is cooking time, cooked fresh takes more time than fast food. And more than run you cannot. Remember: For 4 years we lead our company as a... More

We spent two great evenings in this realy special restauraunt. First of all, the manager Hannes and his wife Nut & Co deliver a perfect service. Second, the food as well as the wine belongs to categorie1A. We never experience such a matching combination of Thai and European (Pasta, Cordon Bleu, etc.) food.

While the restaurant was a little way out of Hau Hin, it was still only a couple of 100 Baht for the journey and it was certainly money well spent.

Dear Kavski100. We are pleased again and again when the guests spent a few hundred baht to eat with us. It is a pity that the taxi drivers are not organized in Hua Hin. Slowly prevail here conditions as in Phuket. Unfortunately, too many drivers just have a little local knowledge and do not know where to go. I just... More

Every time if we come to Hua Hin the first thing we will do is order a table in the Hin Lek Fai restaurant. Because we like it very much. The kitchen from Nut is excellently.

Description
The correct dining options are: ONLY Reservations and Romance, no large groups! Our Motto since 1999 - More than just an eating place! Just 7km west from the Hua Hin City. Hin Lek Fai is the first community west of Hua Hin town and has 12 villages. The mountain of Hua Hin is known only from foreigners like this. Sometimes foreigners think they know more than the Thais! For Thais the vantage point is known under the name Khao Sanam Kop. It is 170 m above sea level and has 6 viewpoints. There has never been a restaurant with a view! Enjoy a romantic dinner in a beautiful environment in the sub-district Hin Lek Fai. Our restaurant (former Pasta Factory) is recommended in many travel books, magazines and telecasts. Note: Closed on Tuesday. Do not call after 5pm, this is the busy time. Thank you!
