Restaurant details
Good for: Romantic
Dining options: Late Night, Breakfast, Delivery, Reservations
Description: The correct dining options are: ONLY Reservations and Romance, no large groups! Our Motto since 1999 - More than just an eating place! Just 7km west from the Hua Hin City. Hin Lek Fai is the first community west of Hua Hin town and has 12 villages. The mountain of Hua Hin is known only from foreigners like this. Sometimes foreigners think they know more than the Thais! For Thais the vantage point is known under the name Khao Sanam Kop. It is 170 m above sea level and has 6 viewpoints. There has never been a restaurant with a view! Enjoy a romantic dinner in a beautiful environment in the sub-district Hin Lek Fai. Our restaurant (former Pasta Factory) is recommended in many travel books, magazines and telecasts. Note: Closed on Tuesday. Do not call after 5pm, this is the busy time. Thank you!

“Soft Thai prices for excellent Thai + European food”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

First, when it's 'high season', don't forget to make a reservation, some days ahead! The place is well away from the city center, but it's worth the 10min. drive. The team consists of a couple (she Thai, he Swiss, but very 'Thai') and their son. Very friendly, like friends welcoming you back. You'd think you're over 10years back when you see the prices on the menu (pictures of all dishes). It consists mainly of Thai dishes, but there are some European specialties. The price (remember: low)/ quality (high) ratio must be unbeaten in the area. And, and, the decoration of the place is on its own worth a visit, you'd think you are in a 'Thai life' museum. Thank you for your kindness, and for the great food, see you again!

Dear Faqtor. We needed to go some days to the North of Thailand, so the answer comes a little late. Thank you that you’re traveled 7 km to our restaurant. It’s great that the food was worth the trip. Thank you for the excellent rating. hannes w.

Dear Brettomax. Thank you for your visit in our restaurant. What sauces and “Wiener Schnitzel” concerns: Most enjoy it "natural", as it is and without sauces. Some like mayonnaise, ketchup or tartar sauce. Guest from northern countries sometimes ask for a mushroom sauce. The tastes are just different: Please let me know the next time, which sauce you want. As for the fish to your wife: We have first served a "Green Mango Salsa" because a bit spicy was required. On demand, the homemade and really very spicy seafood sauce "Nam Jim Talay" was served. Thank you for taking the time and writing this very good rating.

“We decided to try número uno”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

We found the restaurant with no problem and parked right by the door where we were greeted by the man in charge. We were seated immediately.
We ordered our drinks and our meals very quickly. However, our drinks didn't arrive until after our appetisers. This wasn't too bad as we weren't particularly thirsty.
The bruschetta was delicious. After our pasta dishes, we ordered banana flambé. Again, delicious.

Dear RAGE_715. Most visitors find their way to our restaurant without problems, except some taxi drivers, who unfortunately have no training here in Hua Hin. We are pleased that you were very satisfied with our offer, except “The forgotten beverages”! We were distracted by new guests and have forgotten your drinks. Apologize again. Thanks for the very good review. hannes w.
