In the Night Markets of Hua Hin this is one of a number of seafood stalls with fresh fish, lobsters and shellfish in ice. I had red snapper which at 280 baht for a 600g fish was a bargain. Cooked to perfection on the barbecue it was a great meal. My wife was able to enjoy chicken. Good service and... More

Walked to the night market and found Bird Chilli. The restaurant was full for that night, however, we returned the following night and managed to get a table. The atmosphere is manic but very efficient. I chose a huge lobster thermidor my wife chose rock lobster thermidor, both with fried potatoes - all of which was delicious. Was so good... More

You stroll through the market, stop and choose your seafood plate, go to the restaurant and a short while thereafter you have it on your plate. We had a nice experience there, good quality, nice setting and environment in the midst of the night market.

Drawn by the expertise shown by the bbq chefs, but found the service once seated a bit slow. By far the cheapest meal we've had-£15 including drinks. We shared a plate of oysters , crab meat curry , pork pad Thai and the now obligatory chicken green curry - spiciest one yet and we weren't asked if we wanted Thai... More

Six of us ate dinner here and the food was excellent and reasonably priced. However, four of us were served and the other two waited about 20 minutes. It transpired that the waitress had forgotten to order two of the dishes. Other than that very good.

This is my 1st ever bad review so not done lightly. We were drawn inside by a lovely young lady. My 14 year old son and I. 1 beer 1 orange juice ordered while we looked at what food we wanted. The beer average price, orange 60 baht usually is about 40 or 50 baht. So little more than normal... More

Slap bang in the middle of the night market, if you want good cheap thai food with an excellent atmosphere this is the place for you. Look out to the hustle and bustle of the night market and watch them cook your fresh seafood right on the street in front of you! Don't miss it!
