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.

I have been going to Raya regularly for the last 3 years and have never had a bad meal or experience. That includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is excellent and beautifully presented. Service is the next level up. There is generally unobtrusive live...music in the evenings. All this a very reasonable prices.More

This is probably the best (& most expensive) restaurant in a pretty dead Cha Am. Unfortunately, from a locals perspective, it reflects the towns current demise☹️. The setting indoors & outside garden seating are very conducive to a great evening out. A couple providing live...music (playing to themselves😳). Food is good (we had fish & chips, Thai fried noodles, seafood pad Kaohsiung) & now only limited wine selection. Service was not good - considering we were the only ones eating (Halloween night).More

I had a pasta dish that was reasonably priced, nothing special but good for Cha am. My wife ordered a pork chop dish that arrived 10-15mins later than mine that she enjoyed although the smooth mash was a little greasy. They asked us if we...wanted our wine with our meal, we said ok, but they forgot to bring it and when they did it was white instead of red. We were the only people there!More

I lived near to Cha Am for almost three years and eaten at Raya Restaurant at least twenty times. Visits have ranged from dates to large, group dinners. Food, cocktails, wine, atmosphere and service have been consistent with each visit. - For food I seriously...recommend the tower of ahi tuna or the mango salad for starter and the duck leg for main, the latter is unreal. The 'cake of the day' is almost always cheesecake, which is fine with me. It's a mix of western and Thai food, which is usually best for pleasing the crowd. - Wine and cocktails are reasonably priced for this kind of place in Thailand, there are some great reds on the wine list. - For dinner there is usually a duet doing live music covers, mostly western songs - they're actually really good and add a nice ambience to the place. - Service, as mentioned is great - some of the staff speak fluent English whereas some (understandably) don't speak it to well. All however put great effort into providing customer service, which for me is what matters the most. Unfortunately I probably won't be back in Cha Am for a while, but when I am I will definitely be heading back to Raya again.More

By local standards, the prices are a bit high, but this restaurant creates dishes of such quality and freshness as to be worth every cent. We were primarily focused on the seafood and it was so good we had to go back another evening. Don't...miss this.More

Every time we are in Cha Am, we make it a point to eat at this restaurant which is probably the best in the area. They have a large menu of Thai and western food. The decor is very nice and refined. Our favourite dishes...are the snow fish and fish and chips. I also tried their angus burger which was excellent. For sweets, I recommend the lava cake and the caramel custard. The service is pleasant and efficient. Prices are very reasonable considering the quality of the food served.More

We had been at the Raya for two times during our 11 days stay at cha-am and nearly tested all the surrounding restaurants. For our opinion the Raya is on it's own level in Cha-am and even Didine or Rang Yen cannot compete with. Of...course the Raya has its own price level, but in our view this is justified. On the second evening we had papaya salad with crabs as starter, then the Raya Rice and rice with pineapple and all dishes were excellent. Just as great were the pineapple shakes, which were freshly prepared. For this reason, we can recommend the Raya very clearly, if then due to price reasons only perhaps not for every day.More
