Excellent seafood eatery, situated on the pier side of the town. You sit out on the dock, and have excellent nighttime views, with the food all fresh and excellently prepared. We had fresh sea bass fried with garlic, som tham, garlic scallops, vegetarian spring rolls,...More

What a international set of customers and the Thai waiters deal with them all efficiently. It’s all good, all of it. The crab, the lobster, the mussels and the scallops. Even the veg and rice are great. Go early for dinner just before 6pm and...More

My husband and I ate here twice on our recent visit to Hua Hin. We enjoyed the food we ordered each time. Our order was taken promptly and was received quickly. The staff were friendly on both occasions.

The seafoods aren’t taste very good and rather overpriced! The nite market place which is near by has more variety and reasonable price.

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.
