Palm Court Restaurant at JB Hotel

Comments: When I was new to Hat Yai in 2003 I used to eat at Palm Court fairly often to satisfy my cravings for Western food. Their Western food was pretty good. I stayed in an apartment close to the hotel at the time and it was an easy walk.

I then moved and it was no longer convenient to eat at JB so I didn't go for many years. My parents visited from the UK in March 2011 and I took them for the restaurant's Sunday buffet-style brunch. At the time it cost Bt238 per person.

To be honest, it wasn't very good. It was better than the buffet at Lee Gardens but nowhere near as good as the buffet at the Novotel.

Diner Comments:

  • The Thai food at Palm Court was ok but the ingredients were not that fresh especially the roast duck in red curry (gaeng ped pet yang) the duck meat was already in the fridge too long. One can taste the "fridge-taste". Overall, I was quite disappointed with the F&B outlets in Hansa JB hotel. (July 2012)

Comments: This restaurant is aimed directly at the visiting Chinese Malaysian and Singaporean tourists. It's located just opposite the Sakura Grand View hotel (one of their favourite hotels) and the menu is in Thai and Chinese only with no English.

It's a pleasant enough place with friendly staff who I often chat with as I walk past when they are sitting around doing nothing.

The food is biased towards Chinese tastes and in my opinion the prices are high for local rates. I've considered eating there a few times but have always decided I can get better value elsewhere. Local Thais would appear to feel the same way and it remains primarily a place for tourists.

Comments: Located near the Amarin hotel and just a few yards away from one of Hat Yai's red light 'Karaoke' districts, this place is very popular with visiting Chinese Malaysians and Singaporeans.

I have walked past hundreds of times but it just isn't the kind of place that appeals to me personally, so I have never eaten there. However, an e-mail I received from a Chinese Singaporean visitor praised it highly so I am including it here.

Diner Comments:

  • ... we had two steamed flower crab for 294 bht it may sound pricy.. the crabs were both double shelled which is about to change shell and the meat is at its best at this stage. The other dish is stewed pork ribs with bitter gourd for 100 bht, it is soft and succulent as it should be and pork chunky. The last dish is deep fried soft toufu stir fry with chinese leek (looks like gaint spring onions) with generous slices of lean pork, this cost 60 bht.

Google Maps: Street Map or Satellite View

Comments: This restaurant is located in an attractive setting. It is situated on the road that runs alongside the university. I've used the transliteration that the restaurant uses but everyone uses a different version, such is the beauty of Thai to English transliteration.

The restaurant is a large wooden building sitting up on Kor Hong Hill. There are two floors and there is also seating outside. It is very pleasant and one of the only places in Hat Yai where you don't hear the constant roar or motorbikes and pickup trucks that have had loud exhaust pipes fitted by their considerate owners.

Previously you could get freshly made pizza but when the current owners took over they did away with the pizza and just concentrate on Thai food. The food is very good.

To get there go along 'Bpuu-na-gun Road' past the large convention centre and you will see the restaurant on your left. In fact, you may only see the sign to the restaurant because the actual restaurant is set back from the road a little way.

If you see the sign to Prataat Jedi you have gone too far.

The opening hours are from 10:00 to 23:00.

Address: 71 Soi Kraungam, Hat Yai, Songkhla, 90110

Comments: Restaurants in Hat Yai run by Thais that serve Western food fall basically into two categories. There are the cheap steak houses that serve a piece of meat and half-a-dozen French fries at a very low price. At the other end are the more upmarket places that serve higher end cuisine. Pun, which only opened in 2018, falls into the latter category.

The location isn't somewhere that local residents will find easily, let alone tourists. If you are a tourist in Hat Yai you have zero chance of stumbling across this place and locals who know about it only know through social media. If you want to visit, use the Google maps link above.

The restaurant is small, but with a pleasant ambience. The owner also runs a pottery business (hence the name) and ceramic pieces are used to decorate the interior. Apparently, you can also buy pottery at the restaurant.

The menu prices won't shock Europeans or Singaporeans, who are used to high prices, but I was quite shocked to see main course dishes for Bt1,200. Admittedly, this price was for wagyu steak from Japan, but - even so - it is expensive for Hat Yai.

I opted for the roast duck confit, which came with some salad and some potatoes that were so small they were hidden under the duck. The taste was OK, but nothing spectacular and because there was so little I left feeling quite hungry.

It's the kind of place you might go if you have something to celebrate or if you are hosting friends, however, if you want to go to eat because you are hungry and want something filling there are better choices in Hat Yai.

The opening hours are 11:00 to 22:00 Tuesday to Sunday and the restaurant (the same as many restaurants in Hat Yai) appears to be closed on Mondays.

Comments: This restaurant served (past tense) the best pizza in Hat Yai. Their burgers and pasta dishes were also good. I was so impressed that I added it to my list of Ten Good Places To Eat In Hat Yai.

I love good pizza and I really object to the things that chains such as The Pizza Company refer to as pizza.

Good pizza is easy to find in Bangkok and also in some of the major tourist resorts, but difficult to find elsewhere in Thailand. This applies to Hat Yai, but Puri Pizza was an exception.

And then, all of a sudden some time in 2018, for a reason I am not aware of, it closed. The shop is all closed up with the pizza oven disconncted and sitting on the floor. There is no sign outside to say that the shop has moved elsewhere.

So sad.

Quigley's Irish Pub

Comments: In my home town in the UK a lot of traditional independent pubs have been demolished and replaced with houses. Meanwhile, the High Street has become cluttered with pseudo Irish themed chain pubs that have the atmosphere of public toilets and attract chavs and thugs. It's really sad to see what has happened.

I've been to Dublin and experienced real Irish pubs, which are fantastic, but my natural tendency is to avoid faux Irish pubs. However, I am pleased to say that I was very pleasantly surprised by this place.

I sometimes question my decision to live in Hat Yai because of the dire Western restaurant situation. There are so few places that offer real Western food as I know it, and most of the time when Thais prepare Western food it just isn't the same. Any new restaurant that serves good Western food is therefore welcomed warmly.

The selection of food on the menu is very good. They have steaks, burgers, sandwiches, soup, pizzas and other British favourites. I took the opportunity to order Cottage Pie, which is something I haven't eaten for years and impossible to find elsewhere in Hat Yai. They also have some Indian Madras curries. This isn't the most authentic Indian food you will find, but with the dearth of Indian food in Hat Yai this is something else that is very welcome.

I'm not a drinker, but they have a selection of Irish beer on tap and the soft drinks are good. The interior decoration has been done very well and my wife was impressed with the toilets. I always regard the condition of toilets in Thai restaurants as being a good indicator of the overall condition and cleanliness of the restaurant.

There are also rooms to rent on a monthly basis. I was told that the rooms have A/C, but they are very basic. There is no fridge, no TV, and no hot water. The cost per month is Bt3,700 and the deposit is Bt7,400. There is a three month minimum stay and if you don't stay for at least three months you won't get your deposit back.

If you want some decent Western food in Hat Yai and don't want to spend a lot it's a good place to visit. The location is just behind the BP Grand Tower hotel on Sanehanusorn Road. The other end of Sanehanusorn Road where Central and Lee Gardens are located is the very centre of Hat Yai's tourist district.

Depending how fast you walk, you can walk to the Irish Pub from the central tourist district in five to ten minutes. The location is actually very good. It's close to the centre of town, but whenever I have visited I have been able to find a parking space right in front of the pub.

The Irish Pub opened around the beginning of 2013. For Western expats in Hat Yai who crave Western food, and also for Western tourists passing through Hat Yai, it is a very welcome addition to the Hat Yai restaurant scene.

It is open for lunch and dinner, but closed all day every Monday.

Diner Comments:

  • Agree about VFN, but as a real Irish man I was appalled to see the Union jack flag in one corner, French themed posters all over the walls and Scottish plaid table coverings !! That said, it is a cheap watering hole and very clean. (December 2013)
  • One year on .. not much has changed. the plaid tables are gone (TG!!) the menu is vast ... beer is reasonablly priced (100 Baht a pint of Tiger !!) Union Jack and Cross of St. George flags still hanging (Grrr). service was a LOT slower, maybe a off evening. (December 2014)
  • Wow...someone IS reading this I Guess! Union Jack has gone. Service is decent again. now all they need to do is get shot of the silly framed French style posters and we are almost there! (Jan 2015)

Google Maps: Street Map or Satellite View

Comments: Hat Yai doesn't have the greatest variety of cuisine in the world. Thais like Thai food and most tourists that arrive are ethnic-Chinese so there is lots of Chinese food.

Western food is available but it's not great and there aren't that many places serving it outside of the central tourist area.

As you walk past Rim Taang, you would never think it is somewhere that serves Western food. It looks like a perfectly standard Thai eatery and there is no signage outside indicating otherwise.

However, there are steaks and hamburgers on the menu - and there are even English menus.

It's similar to Taste Add but not quite as good. The food isn't quite as good, but in its favour the service is a lot quicker. Prices are about the same or maybe a little cheaper.

I wasn't keen at first but it's a kind of acquired taste and now I go there quite a lot.

If you don't know where the restaurant is located it can be a little tricky to find. The way roads are laid out in Thailand is highly confusing and all the Niphatsongkrao tanons and sois are numbered very confusingly. Here are my easy to follow directions.

From the roundabout and clocktower, go along Phetkasem Road towards Carrefour. Before you get to Carrefour you will see a large building under construction which is the new Siam Nakarin building. The road running alongside the new construction is Niphatsongkrao 5 Road.

Go down this road and after a few hundred yards you will come to some traffic lights. Turn left at the lights and just as you turn left you will see the restaurant on your left. It's just around the corner.

Comments: There is nothing written in English at this restaurant, including the name. Everything is written in Thai and Chinese only, for reasons that might become clear as you continue reading.

The first clue is the name of the restaurant which translates into English as Siam Birds' Nest. The second clue is the pictures of sharks around the restaurant, and the bags of dried shark fins on display.

I received an e-mail from a Chinese Singaporean who felt offended about my references to Chinese eating habits with regard to restaurants in Hat Yai. He reminded me that not all Chinese eat sharks' fin and birds' nest.

I know that. Not only do many Chinese not eat sharks' fin and birds' nest, they don't eat any kind of meat at all as they are vegetarians. However, there is a big Chinese presence in Hat Yai and there is a huge trade in sharks' fin and birds' nest. These are just facts.

Sabannga Restaurant

Sabannga restaurant, Hat Yai - Click for larger image

Map: Map 1

Longitude: E 100° 25' 40.8" (E 100° 25.679')

Google Maps: Street Map or Satellite View

Comments: This restaurant used to be located in the area behind the university, but the owners moved to this new location in 2013. As you drive along the road that leads to Hat Yai airport it is located on the left before you reach the Palm Spring housing development. It is too far away from central Hat Yai to be shown the street map of Hat Yai.

The airport road used to be very quiet, but then it started to develop at a rapid rate a few years ago. Many housing developments have been built and more are being built. There is plenty of vacant land and flooding isn't a problem, as it is in central Hat Yai. As a result, land and property prices in this area are now quite high.

The restaurant building and surrounding gardens are very attractive. It's a big place with lots of seating inside and out and can handle a lot of customers. There is also a fairly large car park.

I waited a long time to go after it had opened. I had noticed lots of minivans and Malaysian tour buses parked outside and and suspected it was a typical tourist restaurant offering overpriced food to tourists.

When I went my suspicions were proven wrong. The interior is pleasant and the food was good. We ordered a steamed fish, which was fresh and very tasty. The other dishes - Thai chicken soup and mixed vegetables - were good, but the portions were quite small. Likewise the individual portions of blue rice they serve are very small.

The restaurant was obviously expensive to build and decorate and along with the fact it caters for a lot of tourists I was expecting our bill to be anything between Bt800 and Bt1,000. I was pleasantly surprised when we were charged Bt650.

The staff weren't over friendly and there didn't seem to be enough wait staff when I visited. They seemed to be too busy to smile or to exchange any pleasantries.

If you are looking for decent Thai food in a comfortable setting with pleasant surroundings it is worth a visit. The size of the restaurant makes it is especially suitable for dining in large groups.

Sabannga is open between 11:00 and 14:00 for lunch and then again between 17:00 and 22:00 for dinner. The restaurant appears to be open every day of the week.

  • I think the food here are over-priced. Taste is only so-so. Same goes to Hameed. Its clearly targeting Malaysian tourists. I'd save my money to eat someplace else. (September 2011)

Google Maps: Street Map or Satellite View

Comments: This large restaurant is located on the new road that runs between Hat Yai and Songkhla. As you leave Hat Yai going past Big C and turn right on to Lopburiramate Road, it is a few minutes drive on the left-hand side. The turning for the restaurant is about 400m after the PTT petrol/gas station.

There are clearly marked signs on the road telling you where to turn off for the restaurant. Finding it is not difficult.

It is close to the Songkhla central mosque, but located before the mosque as you travel from Hat Yai. The restaurant's proximity to the mosque is significant.

It is a Halal restaurant which has been built specifically to cater to the tastes and dietary requirements of visiting Muslims, most of whom visit the mosque. Visitors come from other southern Thai provinces, as well as from Malaysia.

All food served is suitable for Muslims and the menu is written in Thai and Malaysian. Unlike many other tourist establishments in Hat Yai, there is no English or Chinese.

In addition to serving Halal certified food, they have the Thai certificate for food hygiene and also claim to use no MSG in their food preparation.

It is spacious, airy and comfortable and the food is very good. I often stop to eat here with my wife if we are on the way to Songkhla.

From Monday to Friday it is open from 10:00 to 22:00, and from 08:00 to 22:00 on Saturdays and Sundays. It is closed on the third Monday of each month.

The owner is Khun Sommai Noonanant.

Diner Comments:

  • Popular among Malaysian Muslim professionals on a business trip to Hatyai and Songkhla. Like the pleasant ambience. Some of the waitress can speak Kelantanese Or Pattani Malay. I once went there and ordered yellow curry but forgot to mention Phet nit-noy, ended up my mouth got burnt... too hot even to my Malay standard. (May/June 2012)

Comments: The people who run the large Samila Sea Sport seafood restaurants in Hat Yai and Songkhla took ownership of Hia Kui (another large seafood restaurant) half-way through 2009.

I didn't notice the change for a long time because almost everything is identical, apart from the sign outside.

The restaurant is fairly close to the town centre and remains very popular with Malaysian tourists.

Comments: The original Samila Sea Sport is located on Samila beach in Songkhla and is the most pleasant restaurant of the many seafood places that line the beach in that area. I've eaten there several times.

A second branch was opened in busy Hat Yai but of course it is nowhere near the sea and not as pleasant. The food is still quite decent though and it's a large restaurant.

The road it is on is known locally as saam-sip met (30 meters) for some reason I still haven't figured out.

Diner Comments:

  • Choose your own fresh prawns, or other seafood, or eat from the menu. With a friend I ate one kilo of prawns for 1000 THB. That was ok, and their som tam is very good. On another occasion I asked for a dish with red chillies, and I was served something else. The Samila in Hat Yai is not my first choice, but when you go for fresh seafood, be there. (2010/2011)

Get The Best Deal On Your Hat Yai Hotel Room

Listed opposite are some of my personal recommendations for hotels in Hat Yai based on budget. I have lived permanently in Hat Yai since 2003 and my recommendations are based on a lot of local knowledge.

Each link will take you to the relevant page on the Agoda website where you can see photos, read reviews, and book on-line. I use Agoda to book all of my own hotels in Thailand and the Southeast Asia region. Agoda hotel rates are usually always the lowest and I have received good customer service, therefore I am happy to recommend the company to other people. Here is some analysis I did regarding booking hotels in Southeast Asia.

Booking.com used to be more expensive than Agoda, but when I have checked hotel prices recently I have found their rates to be quite competitive. Unlike Agoda, you don't need to pay at the time of booking with Booking.com - you can simply pay at the hotel when you check in. Also, Booking.com show you total prices whereas Agoda show you a price and then add on 17% for tax and service charge.

If you want to compare prices between different on-line travel agents (OTAs) for a specific hotel, you can use a company such as HotelsCombined.
