“Typical seafood menu but done very well”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Sang Thai is clearly one of the most popular seafood restaurants on the shores of Hua Hin. It is always packed with local Thai families or those on a few days break from the capital. The menu is pretty typical of Thai seafood restaurants, but everything is done consistently well. The yam talay (seafood salad) is fresh, spicy and light. The salt roasted sea bass is well cooked and tastes like it has jumped out of the sea and on to your plate. Other dishes worth trying are the crab fried rice and the roasted shrimp.

Service is efficient and while the wine list is limited, it is well priced. However, the white wine is almost warm and needs a few extra minutes in the ice bucket.

Highly recommended.

“Superb seafood ”
Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for haute cuisine, then you are at the wrong place.

This is a local seafood place cooking authentic seafood and Thai food.

We went twice and the second time the waitress recognised us and provided good service. Compared to Thai restaurants it's not a cheap I place.

Food is delicious, seafood fresh and the local setting is just great, my the pier.

Don't miss it.

“very good - but....”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

great location on the water, and our steamed fish - wonderful, and asked for it not spicy - and that is the way it came... but....

we decided to have a shrimp (large creatures) - and little did we know it would cost close to $30 USD for one!!! and even then - grilled - it was almost completely devoid of any decent meat...

so we left - very mixed views... but definitely worth a visit - but dont get sucked in like we did!

“Fresh seafood on the water”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

There are several Thaistyle seafood restaurants on the water and we have seen this one Always packed with Thai people so we had to give it a try. We did order 4 different dishes and all was very fresh and cooked to perfection. This is a Place where the locals go, its simple but food very good and fresh. If you are out for seafood we would say this is the Place to go in Hua Hin.

“Great Seafood Meal!”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

We went to this restaurant as suggested by some local folks from Hua Hin. The menu was very extensive and had many choices of seafood dishes that are common to the area. We had 5 different dishes to share and experiment with and we were very satisfied with the taste and the value. The venue is a large covered and side open area near the sea. We were the only non-Thai folks there out of an almost packed house and always know that it is a good thing to eat where the locals do. We were so satisfied with our meal that we went there a few nights later to experiment with some dishes from the extensive menu. All in all, the service was excellent, the meals were served with lightening speed and the portions are large. This is a fun place to go with friends or family. A thumbs up from us!
