Bistro-style dining by the beach
FACE any poet, writer or artist with a sweeping horizon, a gentle breeze, and the soothing sound of lapping waves, and they’ll invariably be inspired. Where sand meets sea, that’s the home of creative magic – and it’s even better when that home happens to be located at the front of a renowned
Rim Talay (Rim meaning edge; Talay, sea) is the signature beachfront restaurant of the Dusit Thani Hua Hin. Located right next to the sands and overlooking the Gulf of Siam, the restaurant offers alfresco bistro-style dining on an elevated deck, and the stunning setting is equally suited for romantic evening nibbles as it is well-earned gourmet get-togethers with friends.
The restaurant’s chefs have obviously found their collective muse in this superb location because they serve up some of the finest international fare in town. Among the highlights: a vast array of lip-smacking imported meats and local seafood – all sizzled to perfection on the grill and served piping hot by the restaurant’s friendly, knowledgeable staff.
Following an ‘East-meets-West’ concept, the restaurant’s regular à-la-carte menu has dishes to suit almost every palate, with a tantalizing selection of salads, pastas, mains and desserts, all blending Asian and European flavours to delicious effect. There’s also a tasty range of tapas to choose from, available by plate or sharing platter – and just perfect with a glass of wine.
Every Saturday night the restaurant serves up a fabulous Barbecue Buffet Dinner, featuring succulent slabs of beef, pork, chicken, lamb, prawns and lobster, several types of fish, and a salad bar and dessert buffet. At just B1,450++, it’s great value for money.
Another great deal is offered at Ladies’ Hour, every Tuesday, when all the girls enjoy cocktails at buy-one-get-one-free (7pm-9pm).
