Sunsetdinner at Lae Lay Grill
As all other tourists, we always try to find the best of the best, and for us that also means finding the best place to reload calories.
We were recommended the restaurant Lae Lay Grill in Ao Nang, from some other travellers that we met on our kayaking tour at Bor Thor, and decided to visit the place to celebrate….. that it was time for dinner.
The restaurant is located in the hills just behind the main part of Ao Nang, and offers you some of the most stunning views over the sea that you can find in the area. Lea Lay has an open kitchen, two levels with seating, and some of the tables are placed on the outside terrace. They also provide shuttle service, directly from your hotel, so you not have to break a sweat getting up the hillside.
The food is typical thai-food, and when you read the online reviews, the quality of the food is said to be heavenly. To be honest, we didn’t had quite the same experience – the food was ok, but nothing special. Perhaps we just ordered the wrong dishes – so if you go there you might get a lot better result.
But is this place something to go for then? For sure yes! Because the location will leave you staring at the sun setting in the warm thai sea, and while this happens, you could be eating anything and you would not notice the taste, because all your senses are focused at the views. The service is, like almost all places in thailand, spotless and the only misunderstanding we had, was when we were ordering dessert, and the waiter didn’t quite understand that the undeciding tourists couldn’t choose from the menu, and had to order 3 desserts for 2 persons. But that was not the waiters fault.
Remember to book a table in advance, this place seems really popular, and if you would like a front-row-seating, you must be ahead in time.
