“Great Food by the Roadside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

This was our 3rd visit in 2 years and the first meal we had when we arrived at Hua Hin. Located at the traffic junction directly opposite the night market, its conveniently located. All the tables were occupied when we arrived at 7.30pm and the owner son has the uncanny sense of when you arrive and put you on the queue. The restaurant is very much a local coffee shop with tables spilling onto the pavement next to the traffic junction. It offers Thai Chinese food at reasonable price. Not to be missed is the fried fish in garlic and pepper that goes perfectly with a bottle of Singha beer. The kitchen is in full view of the diners and surprisingly the cooks all looked young to be able to cook so well.

“Worth trying”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

We had lunch at this corner coffee shop by chance. Though it was already about 2pm, there were still a no of guests having lunch. So we thought we could give this place a try. We ordered 3 items, fried rice, fried tung hoon, and seafood mousse. All 3 items lived up to its expectations. They taste good. And for the price we paid for, we can't complain at all. The only drawback probably would be the service. But overall, it's still worth a try!

“Good authentic food - low prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

This is a really good choice right at the Night Market on the intersection. And it's better than any choices around here on the Night Market, because many are pretty clear tourist traps.

This place though serves well-prepared and authentic Thai Food. Nothing fancy, but fresh and tasty. It's popular among Thais as well as tourists. My wife's originally from Thailand and she liked the food here too. A big plus are the quite low prices. You really can get your stomach full for less than 10$.
Don't forget to mention if you like to get some real spice in the spicy dishes, in case you get "farang"-plate.
We liked the fried crab meat cakes a lot. The Spicy Cashew Chicken(order it "ped ped" to get real spice) was a good choice too.
If you're around the Night Market then this surely is a great choice. On weekends be prepared to wait in line to get a table...but that's ok, because it gives you time to check the large menu. Since it's usually quite packed you might have to wait a while until food arrives....just kill a few cold beers during your wait!

“Not sure why there are only 2 reviews for this place - it is fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

I'm not sure if it is one of the best meals I have had in a restaurant but it is definitely one of the best meals I have had in Thailand - it is pretty much all you can ask for - the food is very fresh and of a very good quality - 200 Bhats for a main meal - I am not sure if that is expensive by restaurant prices but it is a quarter of our hotel price. The menu is expansive and the atmosphere is great - right on the corner of the night market. Try the crab sausages - they are amazing. Apparently very popular with the locals - and the choice of the locals seems to be the deep fried whole fish - we have been back three times so far and haven't tried this yet - I am sure there will be another time!

“Real Thai Food Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

My wife and I ate in this restaurant the first night we went into Hua Hin and it was definitely a real thai dining experience. All our dishes were amazing and the portion sizes were quite generous. Great selection of dishes to choose from and at great prices. The location is very convenient, just at the bottom of the night market. I would definitely recommend this as somewhere to eat when in Hua Hin.
