Very nice clean English Thai restaurant, "Sweet Sawi," with both Thai and Farang food. Wonderful steak with fries and salad.

On the beach about 15 minutes on good highway from Sawi, in a pretty Thai setting. Good prices, and English spoken.

Hi, I was recently back in Khanom and was happy to go see the nice people at Dusty Gecko Restaurant. They are number 1 on Trip advisor for a reason you know!! If you want some western food that you have been yearning for since you left your home country, then you'd be as mad as a box of frogs NOT to go to Gecko. Moose? Crocodile tail fillets? And not a bad pool player either. (Check who's name is under the table!!) 10/10 on food and service with a smile!!

What other places do you like to eat about and around the Kanom beach area?

The most awesome place to buy food is the evening market by the bridge, by the fishing boats, north of Khanom town.

If you have your own plates, etc, it's not just it's cheap as we end up with three times the amount of food than a restaurant. You can find lots of unusual dishes - way better than any Thai restaurant.

I'm looking forward to Vaughn opening his steak house in replacement of The Hive.

Have you been over to Sunset Cafe over at Ko Yor ?

Although it's not too convenient to go and see the sunset over the fish cages, you can pick up some great steak to cook at home.

The pies are pretty good too ..

It's a bit of a hike, but thanks for the suggestion regarding the steak and pies!

Entertaining friends visiting for the weekend saw us visit two old favourites and two new restaurant/bars in Hat Yai.

The two old favourites are both Thai restaurants the first 'Kan Eng' on Kimpradij Road not far from the BP Grand Tower hotel. Pork is the star here with both the braised pork leg and deep fried pork knuckle being our favourite choices. It's a no nonsense family run business on two floors. Service is quick and the restaurant is nearly always full. It's a must visit for Malaysian and Singapore Chinese tourists. The cost of dinner for six, total of six dishes plus rice was Bht1,500 (we weren't drinking any alcohol).

The second is the Samila Sea Sport Restaurant on Rajyindee Soi 6 this is the sister restaurant to the Samila Sea Sport on Samila Beach in Songkhla. This is Thai seafood and the seafood is fresh and cooking excellent, service is a little more measured but dishes keep coming at a the right pace for you to enjoy the meal. The restaurant can variously be packed or near empty as it's away from the city centre and the main cluster of hotels. Cost of a dinner for six, that was eight dishes plus rice, including two whole fish, two large crab, and four langoustine, was Bht4,000 again no alcohol, we took our own wine and they had no problem with that.

The first bar/restaurants was Quigley's Irish Bar & Restaurant which is in town on Sanehanusorn Road just south of the BP Grand Hotel, so not far from the Kan Eng. It's not really an Irish Pub as it's small and full of tables, more an 'Oirish' themed restaurant. But it was busy and the food looked great, the menu is extensive and very reasonably priced but we didn't eat there, a mixture of Thai, Chinese and British pub food. Most importantly the draught Guinness was very good, certainly a better pint than the Post Laser Disc which is the only other place in Hat Yai that I've drunk Guinness. The place was busy with mostly Thai families and a very light sprinkling of farang.

The second bar/restaurants was Gap's Garten which is out on Thumnoonvithi Rd heading east past Thanon Rajyindee, look out for the yellow neon gecko sign near the Daza Bar on the right hand side travelling away from Hat Yai. Gap's Garten is about 100m down the soi. It's a big open plan space with plenty of comfortable seating, it wasn't too busy the nights we went in and the customers were all Thai. Restaurant is German/Thai the owner is a German with his Thai wife. No draught beer but a huge selection of German and Belgian bottled beers. The beer menu is almost the size of the food menu. Beers aren't cheap but it makes a great change from the usual suspects available everywhere else. Service is excellent, beers come in their own special glasses served just right. We didn't investigate the food beyond a plate of German sausages but we'll certainly go back for a meal one evening.

There are several in Thung Wua Laen Beach (Pathio, Thailand). But I will name 2.

1) Take A Seat Cafe. The sign is down, but it is located near White Beach restaurant, right next to where the Curry Shack (Jasmine Bar) used to be. They don't have a large menu, but what he does he puts a lot of pride into. The only place I know that does french fries with fresh cut potatoes. Currently open for breakfast and lunch. He plans in the near future to have a separate dinner menu with Thai food and close earlier in the day, reopening 17:00 or so.

2) Nit's Kitchen. Great spot to get coffee, western pancakes and breakfast, french bread/rolls, pumpkin / banana cookies, brownies, chocolate chip cookies (and sometimes oatmeal), and cakes also when they were doing it. Also have pad thai, fried rice, noodles, and a couple of other thai dishes. They are located near the Saphli Market after the 7-eleven (opposite side).

Wife has pointed out that the cost of dinner for six at the Kan Eng was Bht2,500 not 1,500 as I said.
