This restaurant in the center of Hat Yai and near to Lee Garden Hotel. Its very popular restuarant for Malaysian to eat and continue shopping.

Its a sweet soup with dried longans, lotus seed, gingko nuts, sweet potatoes, yam, jelly and a lot more ingredients, 60baht a bowl (very expensive but worth it)
The Palm Court Restaurant: Serving Thai Buffet Lunch

Just like the seafood restaurant and the street food, in Hat Yai, there are plenty of the restaurant selling only birds' nest healthy drink as there are so many tourist come for this. It is an attraction, try it, may be a small bowl.
in Hat Yai: Seafood Restaurant
Walking in the city centre, you can easily attracted by the by yellow sign with two big red Chinese charactors with the meaning seafood pronounce as " haixian ". These are the restaurant selling fresh seafood chilled and displayed at their front entrance. The dinners choose the type of seafood they want, mentioning your favourite cooking style or up to the chef to decide the best way of cooking. I haven't try any seafood dinner in Hat Yai as I came from a town near to fishing village. The dispaly seafood are all fresh though I prefume in a business environment like this, the cooked food must be expensive too.Related to:

The bird nest restaurant: Spicy Tomyam
I can't remember the name of this restaurant. The restaurant do sell bird nest soup, shark fin soup, and you can also order other food. In this restaurant we can see their female workers processing the bird nest, picking tiny bird feathers from the bird nest. Bird nest is very expensive delicacy, I bet you won't eat it if you know the bird nest come from the saliva of swiftlets.
Anyway, we are here to eat their TomYam and fried pineapple rice. Both are very good.Related to:

Fuji Restaurant: Japanese food in Thailand
Ok, this may sound a bit crazy to recommend a Japanese restaurant in Thailand. But it is worth trying if you want a break from Thai food for once. Gret taste with low price. A bento set is less than 200 Baht. Great value for your money. It is definitely cheaper than any other Japanaese restaurant that I have been to.
Favorite Dish: Try one of their selections of bento set. You won't be disapointed!
Namaste Orange: A little taste of India
Let's face it, whether you're just breezing through Thailand or living here full time like me, you get sick of Thai food. You feel too guilty going to a chain restaurant like KFC, McDonalds, Sizzler or Chester Grill, but you still want something UN-Thai.
Namaste Orange is a pleasant diversion and not too far off the mark from Thai food. Their food ranges from mild to excruciatingly hot and spicy, but you can ask them to tone things down a bit, if you're a big chicken like me.
Going with the Hindu tradition, you're not going to find beef or pork here, but in regards to the restaurant being Muslim Halal, it's not. They do sell spirits here.
Namaste Orange is a delightful little "open air" type of restaurant with tables both inside and out. English is spoken and the menu is also in English, however, unless you're Indian, you're not going to understand what some of these dishes are...so, outside of bugging the proprietors, they have a handy "chart" hanging on the wall, which gives definitions of the Indian terms (example: Bhundi = Okra).
The ambience is nothing to write home about, but the service is good and the employees are pleasant. My only true complaint is the fact they have no air-conditioning. On a mid-April hot, humid, sweltering Thailand day, I tend to begin going over my mental list of air-conditioned restaurants. But overall, it's definitely worth stopping by, as the food is damn excellent.
Favorite Dish: I've eaten at a grand total of three Indian restaurants in Malaysia and Thailand, Namaste Orange included, and the first two located in Kuala Lumpur and Penang, Malaysia. So, although I can't claim to be an expert on Indian food, I do know that the food here at Namaste Orange is really, really delicious. After first finding this delightful little restaurant, I've been back three times, all within a two week period.
The dishes I've sampled, which just about runs the gambit of their menu, are as follows, with descriptions:
Mutton curry: Lamb-on-bone in a thick curry sauce. Great for dipping at with a handful of Naan or Chapati.
Dry chicken Masala: I've ordered this twice and both times it came to my table made differently. Basically a spiced chicken that is either breaded and fried or mixed with spices and shredded in a thick sauce.
Chapati: Whole wheat flour "tortillas" or flat bread.
Naan: White flour and egg flat bread with some interesting ingredients added.
Chicken Tikka: Dark colored croquettes of minced chicken and other ingredients to excite your taste buds. They are dry, so dip them into one of the assorted curries or spicy tomato sauces at your table.
Spring rolls: Contains potatos, sauce and peas and is delicious!
Samosa: Similar to the spring rolls but has a taste of fennel that is really delicious.
Aloo Methi: Fenugreek leaves with potato (Take your Naan or Chapati, add a bit of onion slice, some Aloo Methi and some spicy mint sauce...YUM!
Aloo Matar Paneer: Peas with potato and some interesting spice combinations...like a thick stew and great with Naan or Chapati.
Shrimp Masala: Beware! Unless you ask them to turn down the heat a bit, you'll be dripping sweat onto your table. Delicious wet dish of a thick tomato sauce and prawns, but I wish they would remove the tails!
I've yet to try the Bhundi (Okra) as they were out of it the last time I ate here, but I'll definitely be back!Related to:

Chicken Rice: Kao Mun Kai
Chicken rice is called 'Kao Mun Kai' in Thai language. It is similar to Hainanese chicken rice found in Malaysia and Singapore. In Thailand, it doesn't have bbq chicken like in Malaysia. It only comes with poached chicken (white chicken). The special part of Kao Mun Kai is the sauces. One is made from fermented bean and soy sauce, another sauce is made from ginger. Yummy!
Favorite Dish: Kao Mun Kai
The Pubb: Rat in the Kitchen
This was one of the first places that we came across and decided to eat here. The food was fine, it was just as we were about to finish a large Rat scurried in through the room and into the kitchen. Nobody seemed bothered. Put us off going back.
Favorite Dish: Not RatRelated to:

Restaurant 108: Ee-San Food
Ee-san food is one of my favourite food in Thailand. It is originated from north-eastern. There are many salads to choose from. Usually you eat the dishes with sticky rice served in a woven bamboo containter. Ambiance of this restaurant is good. There are bamboo tables and benches with dried leaves roof. There are plants around. Nice environment.
Swensen's: Wonderful Ice-cream
Everyone who visit Thailand should try Swensen's Ice-cream! They have many branches throughout Thailand. Their service is good and ice-cream tastes awesome! So many flavours to choose from!!
Favorite Dish: I love their special, "Chocolate 59"!! I had also tried their special "Mango Sticky Rice" and love it too! Too bad that was only a temporarily flavour.
