Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wonderful experience.. We have visited Dar restaurant on a number of occasions over the years as we've found the Thai food to be some of the best we've tasted. You can tell that the chef puts a lot of love and care into preparing each...dish, layering the flavours to perfection. The presentation of the dishes is also so impressive too. My husband and I love how Salina, the chef, incorporates such unique and flavourful ingredients, so much so that for the last few years I have been practically begging her to do cooking lessons. What stands Dar out against most restaurant and cooking classes is that Salina makes every paste and dish from scratch, the pastes are her own families recipes going back many years and they each taste amazing. Finally, Salina agreed to give me a cooking lesson. We first went to the market to buy the ingredients needed for the dishes I was about to learn/create. I had chosen what I would like to learn the day before and knowing that I am from the UK so getting certain ingredients can be challenging when back home, Salina came up with a solution so that I can create exactly the same dishes to what I would be learning. After getting back from the market we set about making 5 different dishes that i had asked to learn. The dishes were 1. Seabass with Salinas signature sauce. 2. A thai mixed vegetable dish called 'pad pak ruem' but using vegetables easily accessible in the UK and with learning how to make the sauce it tasted authentic, 3. Tom Yum goong, 4. Spicy seafood salad. 5. And finally for my husband, massamam curry. At the end of the lessons, we sat down to eat the food, each dish tasted authentic and absolutely perfect.. I should add that cooking is my passion and that I consider myself to be a good cook. In the 20 plus years of coming to Thailand we've been looking for a chef who will teach me how they cook from scratch, their techniques, their layering of flavours, etc. This is the first time I have found someone who ticks each of these boxes. Going forward, Salina is going to provide cooking lessons, if you can attend one then I highly recommend doing so.More

Heard great things about this place. It flatters to decieve. Whilst the food was good, there was not much of it. Portions are very small. I do not mind paying over the odds if the food is exceptional, but the food here is not much...different to some of the restaurants frequented by the locals.More

Best restaurant around the Cicara Market. Fantastic food which is freshly made from scratch with a focus on southern Thai kitchen and seafood. The staff is very helpful to pick the right level from Kindergarten to Doctors degree. We eat a lot of hot and...spicy food and were totally happy with Junior Highschool. The currys are just great and they even asked how you want your meat cooked. The Chef even came out and chatted with us about each individual dish she cooked for us. Highly recommendedMore

comunicacion skill has been the important thing for one restaurant, it means they can't provide delicious dishes. In fact, the boss and the waiter were really smiling all the time while I was dining, but not smile to the asia people, just to the europea...people or the white people. The smell of their dishes is really normal, or you can juede it soso, even worse the quality of every dishes was really small, I can't imagine 6 shrimps would be 280 baht. The location of the restaurant is really good, near amari and night market, but every white people came here like a sheep going to be killed, if somebody come again just be double killed 如果沟通能力成为一家饭店最重要的能力,那么这家饭店肯定做不出好菜,这家饭店就是。 菜量很小,6个小虾要280泰铢,而且最主要的是口味还很一般。 是我,我会选择I rice这家饭店,经济实惠。 再就是这家老板和服务员只对白人笑,对亚洲人没好脸色More

Would highly recommend this restaurant. In the menu you find every thai dish you could wish for and an explanation of the spicyness-level (friendly advice: i consider myself a spicy eater but I couldn't handle 55%) which I found very helpful and nice. The chef...herself introduced the dishes to us and gave us some recommendation, very nice and funny person. The other staff was very kind too. We ate Panang curry, stir fried morning glory and tiger prawns, all of it was so fresh and delicious! Will definietely come back :)More

This was our second visit to Dar we first visited prepandemic. They have moved to a bigger premises. The food was outstanding I had the duck penang cooked to my spice preference and my husband had Tom kha goon which he said was absolutely delicious....This restaurant is run by a husband and wife team.Service was impeccable by Rocky the owner who by the way speaks impeccable English whilst his glamorous wife cooks the dishes. The prices were very reasonable so hop into a tuk tuk and come out of Hua Hin Town where alot of the restaurants are over priced and geared up for mass tourism and eat here you will not be disappointed. Even Rocky rang a grab taxi for us to get us back to our hotel as he said it would be cheaper. Thank youMore

We went here based on the good reviews and we weren't disappointed. It was busy but we managed to get the last outside table. Food order was taken and we were advised on the spice level. Thank goodness we listened to them. We were told...to go 45%/55% and we reluctantly agreed thinking it would be bland. Seriously, 55 is plenty hot enough! It was absolutely lush. We had green curry and the signature prawn curry, both fantastic. Honestly, go for it, it is slightly pricier but worth it!More

We were delighted to discover that DAR restaurant had merely moved location as opposed having closed completely following the pandemic. We last enjoyed a meal at this restaurant in 2018 and during the two weeks we spent in Hua Hin in 2023 we returned four...times and each meal was superb. Fresh seafood, lobster, soft shell crabs, tiger prawns and sea bass prepared by Salina with her inimitable passion and desire to provide the best quality and unique taste for each part of your meal and delivered by Rocky in his own charming and charismatic way. This restaurant is unique, underpinned by the talents of Rocky and Salina who work exceptionally hard to provide an alternative to the dearth of restaurants available in Hua Hin. Salina takes pride in ensuring that her customers are completely satisfied and as you will see has overall responsibility for each meal prepared by her from scratch. She creates the menu, exploring tastes and textures so this will not be representative of the mainstream restaurants and if that is what your preference is then maybe the individual nature of this restaurant may not be for you. Personally, I enjoyed the atmosphere, the music, the engagement of not only Salina with customers but Rocky who compliments his wife as front of house ensuring service is provided with a smile, laugh, consideration and style (in additional to delicious cocktails).More
