“Great pier restaurant”
Reviewed July 21, 2011

Went here twice during our stay in Hua Hin. Great food (you can order large or medium portions). Really good Thai Green Curry, and prices very good (800-1000 baht for four). Just don't look at the structure holding the pier up in daylight!

“Thai Mama”
Reviewed May 25, 2011

This restaurant is the best in Hua Hin. Shabby chic, ramshackle, plastic, who cares. It sits out on the water on a pier with tide lapping underneath and the fishing boats lit up out at sea its perfect. The lady who runs the joint is not to be messed with! She is Thai Mafia! A tight ship with great staff and never a mistake. We have been coming to Hua Hin for 6 years and this place never has an off day. We love the tempura prawns and crab claws the crab rice, pad thai noodles and king prawns with cashew nuts, we don't drink wine but for two peopleto be well fed the average cost would be £15 and that is a banquet! Please don't walk passed this place to go to the more expensive Chao Lay this is fantastic!

“great food”
Reviewed May 2, 2011

We ate here twice during our stay in Hua Hin and is was the best of all the pier restaurants we tried. The scallops in white wine sauce were divine! Excellent service and very cheap, even with wine!

“Can't believe this restuarant isn't in the top ten”
Reviewed February 2, 2011

On a short four-hour visit to Hau hin from our hotel near Cha am, we decided to take The Rough Guide's advice and enjoy a 'leisurely seafood lunch'. However after the Chaolay restaurant so lauded in the Rough Guide has been slated on here we were at a loss where to go.
We walked up and down onto the overcrowded beach and swiftly off it again, around the Sofitel area before eventually heading back to the strip of 'fishtaurants'. Ths restaurant was empty - but my hubby had a good feeling about it so we decided to give it a go. And aren't I glad we did. Service was swift and polite, great views and the food was superb. The crab fish cakes were divine but the star of themeal had to be the seabass in a lemon and garlic sauce - undescribably good - two large Singha, a beautiful fish, garlic and pepper squid, egg-fried rice, and two starters all for just over 800 baht. We are going back!!!!!

“Superb Seafood”
Reviewed January 10, 2011

We have been to this place many times during our stay in Hua Hin, the food is fresh from the sea and the prices are good. Menu vise it could be easier if there were one instead of two menus to order from (one with pictures and one without) that featured all food. Good food at reasonable prices and friendly staff makes this restaurant a place worth visiting.
