Since last visit this place has lost it's charm for us. Still very busy but no atmosphere, average food and staff. Would not go back again as better places in Hua Hin.

Of the coast side restaurants in Hua Hin this is perhaps the most expensive by a considerable margin, but with a fresh fish and seafood shop sitting below the restaurant it has a unique way of drawing in the tourists. The reality is not as good as promised. The food expensive and no better than anything which is offered at... More

Whilst the food was OK the overall experience was very bad. The young lads who should be serving were constantly looking at their mobile phones and talking to each other. The worst thing was our table was near their work station and I had a very good view of what they were doing. When clearing tables they inspected the left... More

It was my second visit here since 4 years ago - I loved the food here before and wanted to come back here again but was utterly disappointed. The waiters were rude and you were able to choose how you wanted to cook the food but this time, it was a no we are too busy so you choose from... More

Bad service, ok seafood. Check out Sang Thai instead. Anyway, won't matter much as the whole area is being vacated for a new swanky lifestyle mall.

During an evening walk in the area we just decided to step into one of the restaurants and it happened to be Chao Lay. Not being too picky, but the place was a disappointment. The atmosphere was emotionless. May-be it would have been better during daylight and with less wind so that one could enjoy the view to the sea,... More

Sorry to say but we were very disappointed with Chao Lay Hua Hin. We were there late afternoon, the place was empty. The staff were not interested of us at all - very bad service! The fish we ordered was dry not good. We will not go again. Have been in Hua Hin years ago, and remember then that really... More
