We were looking for something a little different from the standard fare in Hua Hin and decided to try out the Deya Deli, which in fairness isn’t really a delicatessen, but it is a fine eating establishment, who genuinely aim to provide top quality, well presented, tasty dishes, which they certainly managed during our visit.
Located right next door to Villa Market so it is easy to find and there are plenty of parking spaces - a real plus in Hua Hin. However, if you do choose to sit outside, despite there being some well placed plants, it is hard not to feel like you're sitting in the car park!
The owner and her son did their utmost to make us feel at home. The staff have extensive knowledge of their menu and specials boards. They were only too happy to answer our questions and recommend dishes, they are keen and eager to please. When we mentioned that it was one of our party's birthday, the service was definitely stepped up a notch and the birthday girl was presented with a summer fruit pudding, complete with candle, at the end of our meal. A lovely gesture! (and it was on the house :-))
A Mediterranean themed menu offering a fantastic variety of dishes with a brilliant vegetarian selection - many unusual and well thought out dishes, shame about the rather average drinks list, with a small selection of bottled beers, red and white wine available by the bottle or glass and fruit shakes.
All the dishes we ordered not only looked stunning but were made with quality, fresh ingredients. Colourful, beautifully presented dishes, bursting with a wealth of flavours. The carrot, ginger and lemon soup was very moreish as was the aubergine sandwich - grilled aubergine on an homemade yoghurt flatbread with cream cheese. The chicken was succulent and moist and the sea bass was absolutely perfect. Apart from the soup, the starters are as large as the main courses which would explain why they are similarly priced. Most of the starters would suffice as a main course, especially if you want to leave room for a dessert.
Overall exceptionally fairly priced for the quality and quantity of food.
