This place has amazing food. So good we went two days in a row. The food comes out really quickly and is such good value. We paid about 1,500 BHT for 3/4 alcoholic drinks, plus a starter and 3/4 dishes both nights.

Food is outstanding but what let’s it down is the slow service & staff who look like they don’t want to be there! There is also (in my opinion) far too much choice.. quite difficult to make your mind up! Definitely worth a visit though...More

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.
