kind, friendly staff, very good seafood, fairly consistently. We had several meals there, as a couple and with large groups as well. My friends were also impressed and wanted to go back to it.

The view and the food are great. We stopped in for lunch and had three excellent dishes, spicey blue crab salad, stir fried shrimp and scallops. The food was well prepared and served quickly the basket of fresh veggies and herbs was a nice touch.

The seafood is very fresh, but then it is on a pier. The restaurant lacks really stand out food and the service was very poor. The lengths he had to go to get a waitresses attention were quite funny. This at a time when the place was almost empty. Im sure there are better places to eat in this area.... More

We went there for late lunch, the place was almost empty. Very pricey, might be the location, food is ok, very small quantity compared to other places we'd been. Not really my favourite place to eat out. You are paying for the view, not the food.

Went to eat here to celebrate my husband's birthday and it was worth the visit. We had shrimps and crab and more seafood and it was very tasty. We can recommend this place

Chow Lay Seafood is one of several seafood restaurants on Bang Bao Bay Pier, on the extreme southern tip of Koh Chang. The pier juts some 600 meters into the shallow waters of Bang Bao Bay.

We had 2 shrimp dishes. The shrimp was old, tough, and tasteless. The sauces were not good. We were very unhappy given our experience with the seafood at the restaurant next door. It was great. We recommend you go next door.

On the pier, what else can you have but seafood? Slow service coupled with average food in a nice setting would describe this place in a nutshell. You will pay a premium for the location. There are plenty of much better places around for less money.

For a Chirstmas dinner we went to Chow Lay to taste crabs, but in the end we also ordered some grilled and steamed fish. Everything was amazing! The crabs are not very meaty, so it's a delicious starter, but you won't get full with it. What we were really happy about was the fish. The way they prepare it is... More
