As first time visitors to Thailand staying in Hua Hin we were looking for the ideal restaurant to sample the delights of freshly prepared authentic Thai food. ChaoLay did not disappoint. Perched perfectly on the seafront, there was a relaxed atmosphere, busy bustling ambience and...More

We had a really good dinner at Chaolay. You can get a nice breeeze or a fan so it's comfortable outdoors. Service was prompt. We ordered prawn spring rolls, fish cakes and mussels for entree, then pepper and garlic squid, steamed sea bass, pineapple rice,...More

Absolutely packed full of Thais at Songkran. People were queuing but only for about 10 minutes and nobody seemed to mind as the staff were obviously working hard. Lovely food. Obviously very fresh as they were selling so much

The curry fish was amazing. Great food and service. We ate at lunch time and it was still reasonably busy. Could see the live seafood downstairs.

Please don't listen to all the hype or be fooled by the busyness of this place. Whilst most of the staff are kind and courteous, the attitude of the woman with the blue Adidas top and black mask was appalling. Apart from her being extremely...More

After hearing so much about this place, we went over for a seafood lunch but we found that this place was over-rated. The fish was overcooked and scallops were only so so... We would not consider coming back again.

We ate here a few times during our 3weeks, the seafood was excellent, King prawns, rock lobster ,scallops & crab legs. It was a lot cooler eating out on the pier especially with the humidity.

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.
