“Hot Stuff!”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

We tried this restaurant in March 2013 as a result of reading TA reviews and its great fun with great traditional Thai food. We found the food much spicier than in other places so if you don’t want a mango salad that makes your eyes water make sure you ask them to tone down the chilli. We had seafood, fish and large prawns cooked on the kerbside barbeque and it all tasted fresh and delicious. We ate at a table closer to the main market thoroughfare so it’s a great place to eat and people watch. The downside is that as a place to eat it’s as hot as the mango salad and sticky as the rice! and despite many cooling beers we ended up overheated as well as over eated! Definitely a place to try if you’re not too far from some air con!

“Good food, but sold out?!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Went here based on recommendations. Arrived quite early but sold out of cockles and king prawns already... If you wanted prawns had to pay market price for tiger prawns! Food was excellent. Whole fish was delicious. No question that food wasn't good, but felt it was a bit dodgy that they were already sold out of cheaper options before 8pm. Next time I will ask before sitting down what is sold out.

“Just average”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

I'm a massive seafood fan but was travelling with others that aren't so on an evening where we went in our own direction my husband and I made a beeline for Hua Hin Seafood. Unfortunately we were a bit disappointed. The restaurant is in a good location in the middle of the night market and you can certainly do some good people watching from the tables that are side on to the market but the food wasn't up to the standard we were hoping for. The taste was great but it was let down on our visit by the cooking of the seafood which was all overcooked for our liking.
We had the thai fishcakes and spring rolls to start which came with a selection of 5 different dips - the guy serving explained that they went from mild to hot and we thought this was a nice change to the usual offering of 1 sweet dip. For mains we went for the fried red snapper with chilli sauce and tiger prawns in a curry sauce - as mentioned, the taste was lovely but both were well overcooked and as we were meeting friends straight afterwards we decided to stick with what we'd been served rather than asking for new dishes.
I think I would give them the benefit of the doubt and give them another try but with so many other places to choose from it will have to wait until another trip!

“Great food, fair price, comfy environment”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

One thing that stood out was the fluent English of the head waitress. We were not too particular if we hadn't travelled with a 2.5 year old daughter but the language made it easier to order food suitable for her (generally you say no spicy it's still too spicy for toddlers!). The food was delicious and the environment was comfy. The prices were fair and the selection was also varied. Not a bad restaurant and will definitely return.

“Great restaurant @the nightmarket”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Really good and fresh seafood. Everything for a good price. Located in the middle of the nightmarket so also nice for peoplewatching.
