Description: The correct dining options are: ONLY Reservations and Romance, no large groups! Our Motto since 1999 - More than just an eating place! Just 7km west from the Hua Hin City. Hin Lek Fai is the first community west of Hua Hin town and has 12 villages. The mountain of Hua Hin is known only from foreigners like this. Sometimes foreigners think they know more than the Thais! For Thais the vantage point is known under the name Khao Sanam Kop. It is 170 m above sea level and has 6 viewpoints. There has never been a restaurant with a view! Enjoy a romantic dinner in a beautiful environment in the sub-district Hin Lek Fai. Our restaurant (former Pasta Factory) is recommended in many travel books, magazines and telecasts. Note: Closed on Tuesday. Do not call after 5pm, this is the busy time. Thank you!

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

My friend and I ate here tonight as it wasn't far from where we are staying and, based on previous reviews, we thought we would try the restaurant for dinner. We were not disappointed! The restaurant is very nicely decorated with an ambience of calm and elegance. We shared starters of spring rolls, pork satay and bruschetta, all of which were freshly prepared and extremely tasty. This was followed by duck a l'orange for me and wiener schnitzel for my friend. We both commented on how delicious the food was and how friendly the service was. We will most likely be back soon!

This restaurant is definitely worth trying and I am sure you won't be disappointed.

“Great Place to go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Even though you have to get a taxi to the restaurant it is well worth the visit. My family had the pizzas and I kept to the thai both of which were lovely.
Food was freshly prepared and the service was great. Very good value for money. Nice to get out of Hua Hin.
I would advise you phone in advance to book a table.

Dear mageedee. You're right, you have to take a taxi, because there are indeed seven kilometers from the city center up to us. Most guests see the positive as you: A bit away from the busy city. Especially if it is worth the way. In your case this was so. That's our goal. All are satisfied. I also find it important to note that you should book a table. Thank you for this great review. hannes w.

“Consistently excellent and tasty food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

We went to Hin Lek Fai restaurant on july 28 and 30. Ordered spinach pizza (requested for it to be spiced with a little chilli padi) as appetizer. It was done to perfection. Must order! Some of the dishes we had : papaya salad with fresh prawns, cordon bleu, mixed vegetable/ tofu red curry and stir fried prawns/mixed vegetables with chilli and holy basil leaves and fried fish cakes. The ingredients used were very fresh. Gave each dish alot of depth in taste. The prawns were succulent and tasty. This place definitely has very good, tasty and hearty food. We truly appreciated the attention to every detail, service and taste.

“more than expectation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

last weekend, we a group of 10 golfers visit this restaurant, recommended by a friend, we just think , it will be a restaurant with some good taste food, but in this small cosy restaurant, we are warmly welcomed by the owner, after a short discussion on the menu, we decide to let the chef do her recommendations, every dish on the table, we just can't stop eating, even we are all full, we still order the dessert, it turn out to be the best meal that we have during this trip.
we definitely come to HIN LEK FAI, whenever we visit Hua HIn again.

Dear Frank L. Thank you and the others in the group for the visit in our restaurant. It is ideal for us to create for bigger groups different Thai dishes of our choice. First, because the group will benefit from various courts and secondly, is served what is done. The kitchen is so less stress and you all have something to eat. Food belongs to the most pleasant things in life - you've really enjoyed it. This has made us much delight.. We thank you for this great review. hannes w.

“Excellent - highly recommended!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

If you are looking for a restaurant with great food, great ambiance and excellent service don't look any further! It's the attention to detail that makes a lot of difference and the owners thought about everything! Already the interior is designed and decorated very tastefully, which gives you a very warm and cozy ambiance. When we sat down, the owner brought wooden puzzles and games to keep the kids busy - very thoughtful and effective. The service is very attentive and a nice selection of Thai and Italian highlights. I tried the Pizza "Go to hell"....awesome! So I truly can recommend this restaurant, prices are very fair for the great quality and I guarantee you it will be a special night out! We will definitely be back!

Dear Benjamin S. It gives us great pleasure that our "More than just an eating place!" has made our guests happy. Our way since 1999: Special atmosphere, very good food and a special service. Children are special guests who also want to be satisfied. When they are happy, the parents also will be. Thank you for the great review. hannes w.
