“Terrible service, poor quality food, dusty and full of begging cats.”
Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

We were served tough chicken, a gin and tonic with no ice and tonic that was so flat I reckon it was days old. We had cats fighting under our table. We had two sets of hawkers come to our table which was strange in such an isolated spot. We saw our waitress being horribly shouted at by someone behind the bar for asking for ice for my drink. The decor is very dated and dusty which made the whole place feel unclean. The view is lovely but it is wasted on this dive of a place.

“Over rated-overview, overpriced”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

Third visit in four years and my last! Third time lucky - not here. Ever the optimist one more try, still bad service indifferent quality and dishes arriving in random manner, if you are lucky they may be the ones you ordered! As an annual visitor to Hua Hin I have found that restaurants this poor are not there next season!

“Authentic Thai Resataurant”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Had a fabulous dinner there. Place is very big, mainly frequented by locals and thai tourists. If you don't mind plastic chairs and just OK service but crave good seafood, this is the right place for a good dinner.

“THIS IS A GREAT RESTAURANT!”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

This was a wonderful experience. The food was very good and the location is something special being right on the water.

Very few Ex-pats visit this restaurant because they simply don't know about it.Most people eating here were Thai's so it's a popular place to eat for locals.

Prices are great and food quality is excellent. Give it a go, it's well worth it.

“Very nice scenic view of hua hin and very good seafood”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

First.. best is the nice restaurant with beautiful scenic view of hua hin.. absolutely a must see... also if only for a drink.

The quality of the seafood is very good.. Puu nim Softshell crab recommended.. not recommended are the steamed mussels.. too much cooked...

The staff is very friendly and fast working. Price is absolute cheap. A little bit (80 baht) more expensive than Platoo restaurant. But for the view worth to pay it...

go and try it out...
