Entering this small family run restaurant is like stepping back in time. The menu is multi-cuisine with a Thai and Chinese focus and the food is ok. The displays of currency notes from various places around the world is interesting.

I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. I visited three times this week, everything is cooked fresh and service is very quick. Lots of different dishes to choose from. Air conditioning and cold beer is the bonus. The lady owner, third generation is a real character and lots of fun with a really great story to tell. Well worth a visit

This restaurant has been run by the family for 59 years--- and the founders still can be found in the kitchen [as well as daughters]. It serves all three meals and offers such diversity as western breakfasts, vegetarian favourites-- or using a bean curd meat substitute, and wonderful Thai Favourites!! The food suits all tastes and English is well understood!! It is also centrally located. Its a definite place to try--- and you will also probably wish to return!!

This is a fantastic restaurant in Hatyai. Family-run with great Chinese and Thai food at affordable prices served in a nice atmosphere. They also got plenty of dishes that are suitable for vegetarians. Open 7am-20pm and very popular during breakfast. I visited 3 times during a weekend, which says a lot.

Good, inexpensive food in a bright clean and blessedly cool restaurant.

Friendly service, cold beer, and interesting wall decor of international banknotes.

I was so pleased that I gave them my last R10 note to add to their collection.

More comfortable and better value than the open air sweaty noisy bars a few metres down the road.
