A very unique cafe situated in the main town of Hat Yai; having an array of options of food and drinks. The service was good, food was good and coffee was good too! The price was reasonable and was a good place to go for breakfast and for other meals too! A must go place!

Nice restaurant that has been operative over half a decade. And no wonder: food was really good and service impeccable. Lots of options for us vegetarians as well. Nice deco, old money from seemingly every corner of the world.

"Daothiam" restaurant (founded in 1959) is a terrific place to eat and is only a five minute stroll from the train station, straight up the main street from outside the station, on the right hand side. An old fashioned family run establishment where they speak good English. Their menu is pretty extensive and interesting. Food is served swiftly, is inexpensive... More

I enjoyed my visit here, relaxing feel, quiet and friendly folk. For food, I tried the chicken cashew nut 8/10 + a small rice and a small beer, total bill was 190 baht. Restaurant is air conditioned with good free Wi-Fi and opens 7am everyday. Located next to the "pub" 7.004263, 100.470855

I've eaten here many times over the years. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, I've never been disappointed. Big Thai-Chinese menu. On visit today I had an outstanding fried morning glory salad with spicy sauce and prawns. My companion had a very tasty chicken with cashew nuts (and mushrooms). Very genial staff. Spotless, attractive interior. Good value, as well.
