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.

My girl friend was getting her nails done so I asked the lady owner what she recommended for Thai food. She said "Charleys" so I thought .. we walked down the narrow alley/street and saw ChaoLay and thought this was what she meant. It looks like a tourist trap .. huge .. on the water. We ordered fresh crab and... More

I would definitely say that Chaolay Seafood restaurant is such a great choice for travelers. It is located not far from Hua Hin beach so that you can easily walk to the restaurant. The high light of this place is the seaside terrace which will absolutely make you enjoy a perfect view of the sea. However, some areas in the... More

This is our go to sea food place in Hua Hin. It's always packed and is popular with Thai people which is always a good sign. It's a no frills set up, but the food is always great. Well worth a visit. Sadly supposedly on the list to be removed due to land encroachment so get there before it goes.... More

Food was OK but nothing special. The serving Edinburgh was the worst in Thailand we have experienced in over 25 years. Young waiters were keeping back left over food and eating it from where I was sitting this seems to be a practice among the young lads and is not something I wanted to watch when eating me meal. My... More

One of the many seafood restaurants touting for tourist trade in the centre of Hua Hin very popular for some reason with diners packed in elbow to elbow with sea views for a lucky few. Stick to the fresh seafood lobster, prawns, fish and be prepared to pay for it everything else on the menu is pretty bog standard. Check... 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.
