I will be skipping our makan trip in Malaysia and head to our Thai Boarder, we start off our journey early in the morning 7am during the first day and eat all the way up north till Penang. Then we continue our journey again early next day to the boarder to avoid long queue in the immigration area as a lot of Malaysian are entering for the festival, as there is once my colleague stranded there for about 3 hours just to get the passport stamped.
It just took about 10-15 minutes to reach this restaurant from the boarder.
Dinner time, this place is usually very packed!
Next would be ‘Fried Fish in Tomyam Sauce’. The fish is very fresh as the meat is very soft that soak in the spicy tomyam soup and by just a few bite and sip we were drench in sweat and our mouth is on fire.
We love our ‘Seafood Tomyam Soup’ and with the colour we could really tell it is spicy, sour and its sweet with the seafood taste.
The best dish of all ‘Crab in spicy sauce’, unique in taste as we get to eat slab of fried egg, not that really spicy but very aromatic with the sauce and egg taste. The crab meat is solid too, that is why this is one of the best dish.
This is how we enjoy our meal with Kenji start to burp fire out of his mouth and Jonathan enjoying is every bite of crab or would more like ‘sapu’ing’ everything on the table.
During half journey of our meal, most of our lips had become sausage as its flaming spicy and in hot enviroment that makes us drench in sweat, Yen Ling, being very hungry and just eat what is available and Karen start to burp our fire too.
‘Singha Lager Beer’ is something we do not miss on our meal too cool us down in such a hot weather. Love the taste of it, not that strong in alcohol taste that makes it just nice to go along with spicy food.
After heavy meal, we need to water the environment, what capture our attention too was the toilet. Well docorated with enviroment friendly concept.
Mini waterfall is usefull during your relief moment.
Right now we just cannot wait to hop into our car. What we neeed is airrrr-coooonnnnnn…
This is our first time and would not be our last time, we will definately return if there is a chance. Water View Restaurant
The total damage in this place was around 1700Bhat which is equaivalent to RM170, with 3 bottles of beer it is not cheap yet nor very expensive but we had a satisfying, burning spicy lunch, would rate this place one of the best thai food at Hatyai boarder . .
Remarks: the food here are quite spicy and at night its packed with people.-= Ka Ching =-
Food Rating 8/10, Quite good~ Recommended~ -Stamped-

Do not have a specific address as it is located in the rubber tapping plantation area.
From what I do remember is, directly after the boarder, you look at your right, there are a few road entries, (calculate only the first junction entry to third junction, any of it can be accessible) find a junction which is less than 50m to make a U-turn to axcess into the small road.
Drive till the end till you see a very small T-juntion then turn right, just drive all the way straight through this small alley about 10-15 minutes and you will arrive at this restaurant which is on your LEFT which is very obvious (a straight road with plantation then suddenly you will see cars parking around a area)
