“Over charging on drinks”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

In all honesty it is an average Thai restaurant serving average food on the edge of town. All be it a bit better for decor. Only went there during the day but there are some pretty loud Thai music bars opposite and close by which would certainly intrude on an evening meal. We went there a couple of times during the day and only noticed on the third occasion that we were being charged way over the top for drinks in that location. They were prices you would expect to pay in town center locations. Just one example a large bottle of Chang beer was 100bt and in other restaurants in similar location it was no more than 65/70 baht. I really wish restaurants would not try and hide higher prices in their drink charges which are not immediately obvious.

“Pleasant restaurant, away from the main drag”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We stopped for coffee first whilst having a stroll off the beaten track, and the lady owner chatted to us for quite a while and she seemed very interested in our visit to Hua Hin and why it was our first visit to her restaurant after a number of visits to the town - as we told her we normally stay the other side of town and even a slow stroll in the humidity is too much sometimes.

We viewed the menu and decided to give it a try for dinner.

Across Asia chicken satay can so easily by dry and tasteless. Here it was excellent. Freshly cooked, as was all the food, and very tender. Our main courses hit the spot, but they did come at separate times, which did not concern us too much as we were sharing.

All in all a nice change from the hustle and bustle of the night market or Poonsuk Road.

“Fabulous Gem”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We found this restaurant towards the end of our holiday by looking on Tripadvisor. If we had found it at the beginning, we would probably have spent every evening there. We absolutely LOVED the food and it was great value for money. Add to that a stylishly decorated venue and an enchanting Mother and Daughter team who totally spoil you - you will not be disappointed. This would be our first stop if we ever return to Hua Hin.

“Wasn't special anyways”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Most of all the noise outside bothered me, okay most will say it's ordinary for a road restaurant but that was kinda defeaning. The decoration was alright. They just need to change the chairs, pretty uncomfortable. They had a small thai and western kitchen, which tasted okay. I just wish they would have some more plants or green in their decoration since there wasn't any garden or so. So all in all, it was "Acceptable".

“Too highly rated”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Visited 21.12.2012. Choosed the restaurant by reading tripadvisor ratings.
Yes, nice wooden chairs, clean and nice service. But if you want to eat thai food, this is not place for you.
