“Excellent service”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

We called into Lae Lay as a last minute thing. We were still given a really nice table and made to feel very welcome although the restaurant was really busy (Xmas period). The service was great and the food even better. Not the cheapest meal we had whilst in Thailand, but certainly one of the best!

“Great food, good french wine”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Overall our experience of this restaurant was ok, the atmosphere in the restaurant was very dead when we got there, no background music, probably because it was so busy due to xmas period and the staff were using their walkie takies alot, the place has 3 floors and due to be expanded dramatically in the new year. Having gone to the Hilltop a few days before due to no tables being available here, we were not impressed, the quality of food was the same and the view was actually better at the Hilltop. Only item which made my evening was the good quality French wine that was available however this place was a lot more in £'s compared to the hilltop especially for seafood so I will leave it for you to decide.

“Incredible food incredible service with an incredible view ”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

We just finished dinner at lae lay. They picked us up from our hotel at the time they said they would, no charge. We were greeted at the restaurant with a cool towel and sensational view. Service was impeccable. If the server couldn't understand English they made sure to promptly get someone who could. I can't rave more about the food. We had 5 dishes between the two of us and although it was too much food I'm so glad we got to taste it all. It was just amazing. Definitely the best meal we have had in Thailand so far. Definitely a must try restaurant in ao nang.

“The service is legendary.”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

We came upon this restaurant after being turned away from one restaurant my fiancé had discovered online. Being tourists meant we were now without a plan and without internet to research additional options. On the hill, Lae Lay's lighting appeared to be a pleasant atmosphere.
We were driven up the hill by a volunteer, for which we were both grateful. Without reservations, we were seated on New Year's day within 5 minutes at prime dinner time by a very attentive staff. First came the drink menus, then immediately after placing our drink orders we were presented with the meal options.
Food was delicious, but the service is what made Lae Lay stand out for the two of us. I have never before eaten at a restaurant with this value and received the level of friendly attention and care that the staff here offered. I cannot recommend this any higher for a romantic dinner overlooking Ao Nang on a clear night.

“Walk up u lazy bastards!”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

After the 10 mins of walking up the hill and negotiating the stairs, you are greated with a lovely view and a nice cold towel. Menu is substantial and while not the cheapest, reasonably priced. Service is cheerful and snappy, but beware some of the staff do not speak Thai. Food is excellent a little on the sweet side for westerners palette, but the freshness of the seafood makes up. Scallops where fresh and perfectly cooked. Fish with black pepper on hot plate was aloy but whan (delicious but sweet)
