Our third visit and it certainly won't get our last! We spent most of the day in Ao Nang eagerly anticipating our meal and it was well worth the wait.
It is always advisable to book a table in advance particularly if you want to have the best view of the incredible sunsets. The restaurant operates a free shuttle bus service so you can be collected and returned to your hotel or anywhere in the Ao Nang area. Don't take any notice of the sign that says Lae Lay Grill 100 metres...it's much further than that from the main road!
The superb and very professional service starts as soon as you step off the shuttle bus where staff meet you and escort you to your table. It was impossible to have any criticism of the service. You are given plenty of time to make your choice from the very comprehensive menu. After we had made our choice, we didn't have to wait very long for our food to arrive despite the restaurant being very busy as it was Valentine's Day. There were so many staff that any request was dealt with speedily. For our main course, we chose the seafood platter for two ( 2850 baht - lobster, prawns, squid, crab, mussels and fish with a variety of sauces). This dish was superb!
To add to our overall enjoyment there was live music which was not obtrusive and, of course, a brilliant sunset.
This restaurant certainly isn't the cheapest around but everything about it is quality. We've eaten in many restaurants in Thailand and the service here is the best in our experience. The food never disappoints and there is absolutely no doubt that we will be back before too long!

We had aperitiv-style dinner a few starter and tried some cocktails. Prices are higher, but everything was really good and the view is stunning. There is a proprietary shuttle service to take you up the hill to the restaurant which is great!

This quite small restaurant serves very good thai food with reasonable price. It best to book the table in advance.

I made booking this restaurant from BlueSotel hotel, then the restaurant picked us up in the hotel. We ordered some seafood and they're really good tasty. Nice restaurant with sunset view ( luxury more than Hilltop).

Reserved this place with high expectation for CNY eve reunion dinner, but ends up with disappointment. Not recommend.

Reached the place at 6pm on CNY eve and ordered at 630pm. Waited 2 hours for the Grilled Platter to come, 2 hours, with starving stomach!!!! How could a restaurant let its guests to wait for so long?!? And it is not only us, but almost all guests on that day, all waited for 2 hours!

Understand it is CNY eve and lots of guests, but it is unacceptable for us to receive such bad service. After 1 hr I kept checking with waitress but they just cannot do anything. Asked for manager (even that took more than 20 mins) to make complaints.

Manager has good attitude and apologized. He gave us 10% off on final bill but it really cannot make up for the bad experience on our important CNY dinner.

Food wise, platter is ok but squid is too rubbery. Pineapple fried rice is really good, and the best is the soft shell crab. However, again, really not had good mood to enjoy the food after long waiting.
