I last reviewed this restaurant in 2014 when based at its last location. Once again the food was excellent, in my case the steak. Would recommend this to all. For those who have not found its new location its more or less opposite the Hilton.

We had been recommended to this place by an expat who had lived in Hua Hin for many years. We made a booking by email. No response, so we called them. They had no record of our email booking so we made a booking again by phone. When we arrived they had both our email booking and our phone booking! We brought our own wine, they asked for a much higher corkage fee than every other good restaurant in Hua Hin, but we negotiated the price down to a more reasonable level, even though it was still much more expensive that other places here. Whilst we were half way through our appetiser, the manager came to us and told us the owner disagreed with with what the manager had agreed with us, and the corkage price had to almost double! We were asked by the manager to talk on the phone to the owner because the owner was not able to be at the restaurant tonight. The owner didn't seem to be interested that his staff had previously agreed to a price, and insisted that we pay the (almost) double price. How embarrassing for the local manager, and for us. As we had already started our meal, and had already ordered our main courses, we felt we had no choice but to agree. Things just got worse after that. The food was fair (certainly not good!) and our guest who ordered fish said it was awful! The Australian steaks were quite good, but nothing special. We asked for clean and empty wine glasses, for a different wine we had brought, and they brought us the wine glasses, but with their (undrinkable) wine in them! We repeated that we just wanted fresh, empty wine glasses, but they still charged us for 2 out of the 3 glasses they brought us. Unbelievable! Finally, they brought us some desserts, which we had ordered, but the apple pie was nothing like an apple pie! After some complaint from us, they agreed to take it away and replace it with a fairly ordinary different chocolate dessert. What a disaster of an evening, we will long remember the attitude of the local manager and the owner. This is clearly a tourist trap, and I would recommend that NO-ONE goes there! If you look at other reviews I have written over the years, you will see that most are really positive. This place is truly awful, and it was a very sad evening for my good friends and myself, on our final night in Hua Hin. How sad....

If you find you feel like a change from Thai food and are in Hua Hin then Prime is a good choice. The steak from Australia and New Zealand is excellent, not cheap but well worth it.

The wine list is also superb but again pricey.

The restaurant is very popular and its advisable to book unless you are happy to queue.

Be prepared, as I have alluded to this restaurant is not cheap, THB6000 for a 2 course meal for 2 with wine and coffee. But very much worth it.

My only criticism is the food comes out very, very quickly after ordering.
