“great restaurant”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

I am not a specialist of Japanese cuisine but still, I can see that this is a restaurant that is on top of its game. Not only is the food very tasty and well presented, but you can feel that the top management of this restaurant has been working hard on the overall design, concept and staff training as the whole team works very smoothly providing exceptional service for a great experience. Will be back!

“Excellent food & atmosphere”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

We have been to Hagi recently to taste their Japanese food and I must say we were very pleased with the quality served. We didn't had the teppaniaki table but we could see that the Chef there was making quite a show! :)
Apparently the restaurant has been recently renovated, after discussion with the manager and they have a roof which can be closed or opened depending on the weather.
They also do have a nice Lounge area where you can enjoy some nice cocktails and also listen to their DJ who is playing later in the evening.
Service is very good, well trained staff which are not too obtrusive but friendly.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant for families, couples who like good Japanese food and a nice atmosphere.

“Great Service and Excellent Food”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Can't pretend to be an expert when it comes to Japanese food - this was only the third such restaurant I've ever been in anywhere. But Hagi was certainly the best. Fantastic food, service and a location that makes it convenient to the centre of town.

“Recommended for excellent taste and friendly wait staff”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

My wife and I had dinner at Hagi on a drizzly evening while staying at the Centara Hotel. We thought we could enter from the hotel grounds, but we were mistaken; you can only enter from the street. We sat under the eaves on the terrace where the view of the rest of the terrace was good but not exceptional. We tend to judge Japanese restaurants by the quality of their rice and the taste of their agedashi tofu. Both were excellent at Hagi. The unagi was more firm than we expected, but it was very tasty. The wait staff were exceedingly friendly without being intrusive, helping orient us to the Hilton-Centara part of Hua Hin and the Night Market, perhaps because it was raining in the early evening, and there were not many customers. The price was typical hotel price for the food, and we felt it was an excellent value considering the friendly and helpful orientation that we received from the wait staff, the taste of the food, and the fact that we could charge the meal to our Centara Hotel bill.

Dear Sir ,

Thank you for your comments regarding our Hagi Japanese restaurant! We do appreciate that you have experienced a great evening!
We have just renovated the restaurant but as you mentioned, we are still waiting for our retractable roof cover to be placed within October in order to protect the outside terrace from the raining season.

Once again, thank you for the positive feedback and hope to welcome you in the near future with an even better experience as we are always striving to improve our services and offers!


Sincerely yours,
The Management
