Favourite Restaurant's

Recommended Posts

One of my favourite restaurants in Hua Hin is Natta's on soi 88. They serve excellent steaks at supricingly reasonably prices and have also delicious Thai food.

Another favourite is the Vietnamese restaurant Madame Nu located on Petchakem Road between soi 88/1 and Market Village.

I second both of those suggestions stgrhe... especially Natta's! I tried it last month (twice) and had the delicious (295 baht!) fillet mignon steak both times (once with pepper sauce and once with Bearnaise sauce. They were both excellent and the best price in town in my humble opinion for a steak of that quality. My wife had the same steak with a mushroom sauce and it was also good (it's listed on a different page of the menu for some reason). I was intrigued by the size of the menu for a small place like that and there are many interesting items on there I want to try if I can ever go there without getting that great steak.

For those who live in the south end of town looking for something inexpensive and good, there is a new very small restaurant (remodeled recently, new owner) on Soi 116 that is worth a try. The're open for three meals a day (close early though, I think around 8 p.m.) and have full western breakfasts for 95 baht and lots of foreign and Thai dishes at very reasonable prices. It's called Sabai and is on the right side about three hundred meters up Soi 116 (south of town a kilometer or so past the flyover). I've tried the fish and chips and the weinerschnitzel and they were good. The fish and chips is not the usual English style beer batter but the batter used (same on the weinerschnitzel) is good and not dripping with oil like some places. The chips are also not the English style but are the crisp thin French fry style better known in America.

There is also a new bar called the Garden (had their opening night last week) opened on the same Soi (116) across from Sabai and up about 50 meters. It is a nicely laid out place with a new pool table and a good selection of beer, wine, and spirits. I've been there twice, once for their opening night celebration (last week with a free buffet) and another evening for a couple of beers and on that occasion they provided free snacks (chips or crisps in the "Queen's English" and nuts) along with our beers.

Both places are owned by foreigners (or their Thai wives/girlfriends); both Scotsmen I believe.

You whetted my appetite for steak when you mentioned bearnaise sause being available at Natta's, so I think I'll drive down from Cha-am and check out Hua Hin as well, probably staying a night in each city and do a dinner at Natta's also. Do you have a recommendation for full English breakfast in Hua Hin also? :)

I know this is a very late reply, but I cannot see any recommendation on this as yet. May I suggest 'The Victoria', absolutely excellent Full English breakfast, with really good pots of tea. The place is run by a nice chap called Barry. It is situated on the right hand side of Phetkasem road some 300 yards from the traffic lights, on the same side as Municipality building as you travel south from HH.

They also do very good liver and onion.

I just went to a brand new restaurant last night on Soi 90 (also accessible from Soi 94). It's called Terrace90 and I highly recommend it. They have a huge menu bound to satisfy most people and are open all day starting with breakfasts at 45 baht with a full American at 75 and a full English at 130 baht.

They have steaks, American style ribs and pulled pork sandwiches, Italian food, Mexican food, and an extensive Thai menu (from what I noticed the Thai dishes range from 59 baht to 100 baht), all at very low prices for a restaurant of this quality (very nice with outdoor or indoor air conditionned seating). The selection and prices of drinks seemed good too compared with other similar restaurants. I had a very good bottle of California Zinfandel (a type of wine that I have not seen at any other restaurant) for 699 baht. To go with the wine I had the rib eye steak with pepper sauce on the side (jacket potato and steamed vegies included) for only 259 baht. My (Thai) wife had two of her favorite Thai dishes and gave them two thumbs up as well.

As yesterday was opening day, you can expect a few minor problems until they get settled in (last night they had a power problem in the middle of our meal but it wasn't a total outage and there was still enough light to enjoy our meal and they were quick to arrive with floor fans on extension cords to keep us cool).

The restaurant has very good (romantic) ambiance that you would not expect to find away from the beach or at these prices. They have a second floor that one of the (Thai) lady owners showed us at my request that is not open yet, but they plan to have more seating a nice bar with bar seating and some soft live music up there later. They also have a parking lot adjacent to the property which is always important to me.

They said also that they are having a Cinco de Mayo celebration this Wednesday evening (May 5th). That's a famous Mexican holiday. They intend to have a ribs and Mexican buffet for 199 baht. According to the web site reservations are recommended.

The place is on Soi 90 but it is also directly at the end of a small soi that runs from Soi 94 (2nd soi east of the railroad tracks. You can look down that soi and actually see the restaurant two or three hundred meters away.

They already have a website up with extensive information about the menu, events, and location Terrace 90

Just to let Americans who want to celebrate the 4th of July know (and Brits who want to celebrate getting rid of the U.S. colonies :) ), I just noticed (from their web site "events") that Terrace 90 is having a 4th of July (Independence Day) buffet that sounds interesting. It is typical American 4th of July fare for anyone missing home like BBQ pork, hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad, cole slaw, baked beans and corn bread in an "all you can eat" buffet format for 199 baht.

Other than the above all I would need here is my family and some fireworks to celebrate with to make it official! :D

Best steak so far was towards Kao Takiab

head towards Takiab from town centre, past the u-turn bridge (stay in left hand lane), keep going a little further and it is on the same side of the road as the big temple, directly across from the 2 Thai Karaoke bars. 180 Baht with french fries and Salad (or veg). It has a Thai name, would go back and have do so many times. laugh.gif

Also does anyone know of any decent Moo-Kata? I have tried the one on Petchkasem Road heading towards Cha-Am, wasn't too impressed bah.gif

I believe NHkidCudi is talking about the Butcher Shop which is located just opposite Hin Nam Sai Suay on Petchkasem Road close to Soi 6. It's the same kitchen/menu as the three Mr Burger restaurants.

Yes, that sounds right now that I think about it. That is the location of the first Mr. Burger, I believe.

On the water we like Krua Medsai. In Cha Am beach road north and as the pavement runs out you'll see the big sign.

Cheap, fresh and steps from the beach.

We also used to like this place. But on our recent visit the crab in the khao pad pboo was stale and the prawns were mostly head (not that the mother-in-law minded: It's the best bit for her :D). Add to that, the fresh crab that my wife ordered turning up a couple of minutes before the chek bin, and the generally surly attitude of the staff, and this place is on our avoid list now. Plenty of good places on the smaller beaches south of Khao Takiab, so we won't be giving any more of our hard-earned to this place that has become too big for it's boots.

Made it to this place on our recent stay in town. The owner still has some work to do but, overall, it gets a big thumbs-up from us. The garden setting for breakfast is lovely. The tea and coffee are as good as you'll get in this town. The English breakfast is a bit of a 'curate's egg': The back bacon is great, eggs fine, sausage poor and under-cooked (surprising considering all the options for good quality English-style sausages available in town), toast with jam and butter fine, hash browns (American style!?!) absolutely delicious. The premises, inc toilets are very clean.

We went for dinner one night. There was a buffet on downstairs. We ate upstairs, where there was a duo playing a very pleasant, easy-on-the-ear vocal/acoustic guitar set. I ate the fillet with fries and pepper sauce, my wife had the yam pla duk foo shredded catfish dish. Both were superb. The wine list is excellent and the prices are bafflingly cheap, but they need to keep the whites refrigerated: We ordered a good quality Aussie brut sparkling which was served at room temp, then shoved in an ice bucket! It was starting to taste quite delicious toward the bottom of the bottle. We had a couple of cocktails to finish, which were great.

Despite the minor problems, we liked this place a lot and will be back next time we're in town.

^ Now besides their Friday Night 199 baht international buffet, Terrace90 are also serving an all you can eat Mexican food buffet for that same price on Tuesday nights. It starts this week and I can't wait to try it as Mex is one of my favorites.

There is a new restaurant in Khao Takiab that I like to recommend. It is called "KISS TRO" and is located on the right hand side when driving from the town about 100 metres after the Hyatt Regency intersection.

Kiss Tro is an international restaurant run by a French guy who has many years experience from being a chef in five star resorts and this guy really can cook and present his food the food very nicely. The price level is moderate but the quality for the money spent is nothing but excellent. I have now eaten there three times tasting meat, fish and pasta dishes and all have tasted fantastic. For me to say that doesn't come easy as I normally is quite choosy about food.

Thai food is also available and cooked by a Thai lady, but my wife said it too is tasting very good.

Kiss Tro also bake their own bread and it is also the best bread I have tasted here in Hua Hin.

Give this restaurant a try fellows, you will not be disappointed.

Stgrhe,

Do you know if Kiss Tro is open for lunch?

Yes they are and I had lunch there again today. Actually they open quite early as they also sell fresh good quality bread. Also, I forgot to mention in my earlier post that the name "Kiss" has nothing to do with kissing but comes from Kissond, the owner's name.
