Has anyone got GPRS coordinates for the pizza place, i have seen the signs, its got to be 2 minutes from my house but i cant find it, however many times i ride up and down that road.

Hmmm..... I don't know the name of the road , but it is "the old road" Hat Yai - Songkhla, and around the halfway point (very near Wat Kok Sung) is a steak place called Steak Nai Suan. IS that the same place? I've been thinking of going there.

Yes, I have no familial connections with Isaan, but I do like Isaan food,,,would be good to know where to go.

We go to an issan restaurant in Ked-Pet, the road that Sotus / Paragon are on, opposite side of the road, not far from garage with 7-11. On the corner of paradise bungalow resort road. The Som-tam is good, along with the BBQ fish.

There is also Sukothai 'jim-jum' place, not far from you, on the back road to Big C, Th. Ratbumloong, Sukothai isnt really Issan but they have some nice issan dishes such as duck tongue, which you dont find too often here. There are also some issan 'gardens along the road but we dont rate them that much, a little too expensive, not too authentic, southern style (too much sugar in everything).

Mr.Steak .. We had a discussion at school about this chain, the kids came up with a word i never heard before - naa pee or ghost face to describe the staff. Anyway, along with Jeffers steak, best avoided if you think you are going to get a decent steak. However, we go the one in the soi kind of opposite Siam Nakarin. The service is a little better there and a better environment to the others in Hat Yai and Songkhla.

I just had a really un-entertaining night at Pirom Pizza,

The place wasnt exactly buzzing, just a couple of locals picking over a seafood salad whilst interacting through 'line'. The decor nice, the staff well turned out, i had high hopes.

I took the advice from the OP, steered clear of the hotdog sausage and ordered a ham pizza, the wife, a pasta and salad.

5 minutes later, the condiments were placed upon the table, and a couple of minutes after that, the pasta arrived with a 'carrot' salad garnished with that 5B lettuce they use to decorate street stalls.

We picked at the "salad" the missus wasnt impressed, she was mumbling about it not like the hydroponic stuff that some guy brings to work to sell, but i told her to pipe down as we were havin' a night out.

We waited … we waited .. we talked .. she finished her uneventful pasta .. we waited .. we watched and listened to the service girls 'torturing' a little kid in the middle of the restaurant, and the owner updated her fb profile on her ipad. Then everyone disappeared.

30 mins later .. the girl came to clean the table. The wife enquired where my pizza was ..

The girl gave that look of confusion, I knew what was coming next, I passed the wife my wallet and walked out.

Back home for cheese on toast. It's a sure bet that i will never get to taste a pizza from Pirom.

I'm amazed. Not at Piyom Pizza particularly, but at a business that on a quiet night could overlook an order. The girl that took (or didn't take) the order, the chef that ignored the order, or the owner who wasn't supervising.

At least you had cheese in the fridge. Cheese on toast is nice. Sorry about your experience.

May I suggest you right a review on their Facebook page....I'm still hopefull that your experience was isolated because I enjoyed the pizza wee had, very much and will return.

Very interested in the steak across the road from Siam Nakarin...there's two restaurants down that soi that I'm aware of...one on the corner of soi 19 and another just past it...both very standard the usual Thai stuff......Wife says her friend told her there is an Italian place somewhere around there....but wifey can't place it either.

Dont worry mate, its just one of those special Thai moments, I sat there quietly fuming that my wifes food was served 20 mins before mine. I like to give staff the benefit of the doubt, before I start to enquire as we were thinking they had to heat the oven up or something.

Dont blame anyone else other than the girl who took the order, she didnt think we wanted 3 dishes, so she ignored my request. Even tho' my wife also asked for the pizza too. Just bad staff training at the end of the day. We talked about it on the way home, a good restaurant will read back the order, this girl did not.

A good restaurant owner comes over and says hi, hows the food ? This one was so busy on her ipad that it wasnt worth it.

It was hard enough to get the missus to come out in the first place, we have an oven, flour on the shelf, a pack of ham, some moz in the freezer .. she couldnt work out why we were going to spend money outside, but i like to check these things out and support a local business.

BTW: Have you visited Gaps garden, on Thamanooviti by Chao Praya massage ? I hear its over-priced but nice .. there is also another steak restaurant around the area of the old tesco. I wouldnt get your hopes up on Mr.Steak by SiamNak, its just somewhere to get some cheapish western fare when we dont cook at home.

The use of iPads/smartphones/tablets for enjoyment by restaurant staff here seems to be much more of a problem than in other parts of Thailand I have visited.

Maybe it spread from the masseuses...

I much preferred Gap's when it was at the previous location. The current place is too big, especially when there are only a couple of customers.

there is also another steak restaurant around the area of the old tesco.

Probably Taste Add, just about opposite Baan Suan Coffee place - I can't think of any others in the area. You'll have a long wait if you expect the waitress to repeat your order though. whistling.gif De Van is the best option for steak in Hat Yai, IMHO.

I head regularly to Nakhon on business and was looking for recommendations of where to eat, either falang or Thai food at reasonable prices.

I am often on day trips so places open for lunch would be a bonus.

Just remembered that had a meal at kitchen plus at home pro in Nakhon last week and it was excellent value for money, a big serving and reasonable price.

Isaan food.

We were taken to an Isaan garden restaurant (and offered the air con room if we wanted it). I didn't get the name but the banner shows a fat woman with a tum grock. It's on the corner of the soi before you get to Big C Extra, if traveling from Siam Nakarin.

We had quite a few dishes...I thought the serving sizes were a bit small, but overall the food was good.

On the topic of Isarn food, I'd appreciate any hints on good ones in Songkhla Town...I have yet to find a really good one.

There are good places to eat north of Nakhon City in the Tha Sala area. Try Pang Pring / Pak Duat seafront where there are a number of Thai and Farang restaurants, including the newly opened <removed> (British) Pub & Restaurant (). There is also a range of accommodation to suit all budgets.
