Description: There are a number of good restaurants along the wharf area. Saeng Thai is a very good option. We tried Chaolay Seafood as it was recommended by one of the local residents of Hua Hin. It was an excellent recommendation. Before climbing the steps into the main restaurant you pass a large selection of fresh fish. Once on the pier, there is an army of staff to seat and serve you. My colleague and I ordered a scallop appetizer, a whole fish main course and a large fried rice side dish. The food was very good and the pricing reasonable, less than $30 for all of the food and 4 beers. Chaolay is worth a visit.

You have got to check this place out. Many wonderful surprises are in store. Cat fit eggs in hot and sour soup? Who would have thought they would be so delicious. Manta Shrimp in Garlic and Pepper? Yummy. Oh I miss Thailand! :-) :-)

Having been to this restaurant a number of times over the years and had a great time on every occasion, I made sure that I gave it a try once again this time. I was not disappointed.

Certainly, the decor and furniture and so on is very basic, but the location on one of Hua Hin's famous piers is excellent and the view, especially in the evening, is superb. Staff is unfailingly friendly and accommodating and the food is very reasonably-priced, "plain" Thai at it's very best. Not surprisingly, fresh seafood is a specialty but there are plenty of alternatives on the menu. A pleasant experience, not to be missed.

I have been to this place plenty of times with my family, friends and colleagues.

It is right at the water close to Hua Hin city center. This is one of the places that is completely full every evening.

Though you need to sit on plastic chairs and the table setting is not the nicest the food is close to excellent.

The seafood is fresh and you can watch some of the crabs and prawns in the restaurant before the dinner.

This is a very enjoyable experience.

We have eaten here a few times when in Hua Hin. One of the 'pier' restaurants, it seems to be the busiest, particularly at weekends when the town is flooded with Bangkokians. The food, whilst fairly basic, is tasty and good value and the setting is delightful.
