Heard through the grapevine that this place is good. A few moans that they charge for leftover food not eaten on your plate. Simple a) don't have eyes too big for your (oft ample) bellies! b) it is clearly stated on the signs and c) money charged for leftovers is donated to the poor to alleviate poverty. So hush your moaning! Decent food, ample choice, hot (despite buffet format) and great value at 229Bt (just over £4) per head. Located about 1.5 km North of centre of Hua Hin on main Phetkasem Road on the left right next to the Shell petrol station, easy to find. Well worth a taxi motorbike or tuk tuk journey as probably just a little too far to walk from central Hua Hin in this heat. A definite recommend.

I am amazed to read the last two reviews of this restaurant were so negative. Certainly, judging from our experience User_Account_4592 must have been unlucky on the day to find servers that could not speak English. All who served us spoke it very well. More importantly, User_Account_4592 should not be surprised in Thailand to find a charge levied against someone that takes lots of food from a buffet and then doesn't eat it. It is a business not a soup-kitchen! If the Thai buffet food is not to your reportedly, high standards User_Account_4592, put your hand in your pocket and go somewhere that serves western food to western tastes (Sizzler; really?).

On Chinese New Year we visited this buffet and it was understandable busy with an equal mix of Thai/Easterners and Westerners. I always find that a restaurant that is popular with locals here is a good choice for quality Thai food and value for money. This restaurant was certainly both of those.

As we ate we both remarked on the quality of the salad bar and that it was being well maintained during the busy turnover. The grill had a wait of a couple of minutes after a big rush had gone through but the meat was very good quality and well cooked.

We finished our meals and received the bill. There was no charge for the small amounts of salad that we each left and the whole bill was 70% for the alcohol that we had chosen to drink (two glasses of rather nice wine each). I was confused by how little the bill was and asked the owner how much the buffet is each. She is a very lovely lady and was very polite and pleased that we had enjoyed our meals. 229 baht per head would be ridiculously little for a buffet of much less quality. We found this place to be extremely good value and had good service from the cooking and the servicing staff throughout. I guess the trick is to be polite, not to be greedy or take more than you can eat or things you don't like.

I visited Backyard Steak with my daughter, her boyfriend and youngest son . I asked if he was charged as a child and at first they said yes he could pay 100 baht, The food was ok,But the mashed potatoes were sour.When I mentioned it nicely (trying actually to be helpful) they were offended and charged my son adult price for the meal instead of the beforehand agreed upon 100 bt children's price. It was not the first time we ate at Backyard steak and most times it has been ok for the price you pay. But this time was a disappointing.
