The restaurant is set into a hill overlooking the sea so dinner as the sun set was perfect. We got there for 615ish and timing was perfect.

It was a short drive from our hotel and a driver comes to collect you if you book in advance.

The menu is fantastic - very varied. Many of the Thai places in the area sell very similar dishes but this one had a far better selection. Their starters are much more varied than other places too - although they are big!

The menu is large so make sure you look at it fully from start to finish so you don't miss something! Make sure you take a trip to the loo as well - you walk past the frenetic kitchen and see all the food being prepared!

Staff are lovely - the friendliest in any place we ate in in the area.

Make sure you look at the wine list - it's pricey but everywhere in the area is. There are some lovely bottles though if you want to push the boat out more than a beer.

Can't recommend this place enough - we had a wonderful night. If you're looking for cheap, this place isn't for you but it's not extortionate and will be a very special night.

We have just returned from a superb holiday to Thailand, combining a week in Krabi and a week in Puket. We tried to eat in as many different restaurants as possible in both locations. I would say that Lae Lay was my favourite.
The restaurant was extremely well managed, as shown by the courteous and attentive staff and the freshness of the food. Lae Lay was being renovated when we ate there, building a new decking to see the wonderful views as well as new toilet facilities. Having said that, the renovations didn't detract from a lovely evening with magnificent views over the bay at sundown, great fresh thai food and attentive waiting staff.
We find it increasingly hard to get authentic thai food these days so were thrilled to find Lae Lay. Highly recommended!

We had a excellent night at Lae Lay, on 21 Jan 14. We were picked up promptly for the sunset dinner we had booked. Food service and staff all excellent. It was my husbands Birthday and I secretly asked the staff to put a candle in his desert so my daughter and I could wish him happy birthday. Next thing we know all the wait staff came to our table singing a rendition of "We will rock you" and then sang happy birthday. They presented my hubby with a large fruit platter with a singing and dancing bird that seemed to move in time with the staff singing. A little embarrassing but what a great surprise.
The food was excellent the special for the night was stir fried crab which was delicious. Well done and thank you for the great night.
