I've visited this restaurant in the night market many times and usually eaten barbecued seafood. The restaurant is popular with Thais and Tourists and offers a huge range of dishes with barbecued seafood being the speciality. On our last visit we had Oysters, Barbecued prawns...and squid - all good. Seafood is always good quality and fresh. Service is quick, friendly & efficient. That said in pre CoVid times the restaurant was often full to bursting so things could slow a little. The restaurant is a Hua Hin classic which I hope survives the CoVid slow down- they deserve to.More

We ordered fish with chillis and asparagus but fish with black pepper came. The taste was just ok. All dishes were small comparing to the price. The place was dirty and the services were poor.

The seafood was so delicious that we ate dinner there 2 nights in a row! Rod Fai has a concession stand located on the street with a great selection of Tiger Prawns, Muscles, Fish, Crabs and others! You can pick out what you want them...to cook and they will weigh the items and give you a price. After ordering your selection, simply go into the open air building a take a seat in their huge restaurant while they prepare your foods. Great service and always a treat when we visit Hua Hin!More

I visited this place December 11th. I ordered grilled lobster. It looked quite nice but it was so rubbery that seemed almost impossible to eat. I struggled with the lobster for some time, then I noticed that under this rubbery part it was completely raw...!!! I showed the lobster to the staff, they offered to regrill it. Although the idea was stupid I agreed as I had nothing to loose. I got it back still raw but additionally coal- burnt on the surface. What about the staff , the owners , the cook ? Their only concern was to hide my plate as it was not a good advertisement for other guests. I didn't hear a single "sorry". So, my only advice is : BEWARE this place !More

I been all over Thailand for the last 19 years. I prefer spicy Thai food right now, and authentic Thai style. This is my top 10 places. I was really shocked how good food they have there. And fast cooking. No aircon but a lot...of fan. And they make a big fire show when cooking every 20 min. Fire go 2 meters up in the air... How cool is that. The prices are great, if you want a proper dinner.More

Went to eat with my wife. My main course came out with my starter and when I explained I wanted my starter first it was taken back and left on the side to go cold. Got my cold chop just as soon as my starter...was done and at least 15 minutes before my wife’s meal came. Tried to explain to the staff but they pretended not to understand’ Give this place a wide berthMore

The service is in very bad quality. Some staff are not really friendly and are kind of rude. The flavor of food is not worth waiting. Disappointed.

Visited this restaurant as there were plenty of Thai’s eating there which usually means worth a visit. Ordered two dishes , some noodles and some rice. Mains turned up in less than 10 minutes well done. After 20 asked for the noodles and rice?? Noodles...arrived 30 minutes after the mains apparently dispatched to the wrong table. The rice we never saw. Needless to say will not be going back.More

This was the best seafood we had after 3 weeks in Thailand and surprisingly ridiculously cheap too. Nice venue upstairs with lots of fans, good reasonably priced drinks too, including wine. Really wished we had found them earlier instead of at the end of our...holiday.More
