“Excellent German food and drink in a nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Went with a small group. The restaurant is at first hard to find.... make sure you take down the location from this site and note the telephone number.

Food and service are excellent. Good selection of German beer. Outstanding selection of German Schnaps (liquor) at great prices.

We had the sausages, pork knuckle and spare ribs.... all were excellent and well worth the price.

Great value!

The owners also came by the table and we had a nice chat. Will definitely return.

“A little slice of europe in asia.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

I've been a regular customer here for almost two years and i gotta say i'm pretty well hooked on the place.
The gaps burger is just the ultimate comfort food for one that is homesick and just totally hits the spot. (Just make sure you go on an empty stomach to appreciate the true awesomeness of this)

The service is great and you really feel at home there as the staff are so welcoming.

The food can take up to 40 minutes to arrive but its so worth the wait as you are getting true german homestyle food.. (plus with the vast european salad bar to help yourself to while you wait.. your main course arrives before you even know it)

The price is more than reasonable for the quality of the food.
(try getting a 100% steak burger in europe for less than 5euros)

All in all i'd say im hooked for life.

It's worth a visit to hatyai for this place alone.

“Amazing experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I went to this restaurant for the first time 3 months ago and just keep going back! Its a really nice laid out place, the atmosphere is very relaxing and the owners and the staff are absolutely lovely. The food is always delicious, everything I have tasted has been good and worth every penny. The food is very gourmet, in Europe would be extremely expensive, but here is reasonably priced. It is also such a treat to get really nice wine!

“SUPERB FOOD WITH THE BEST GERMAN AND BELGIAN BEERS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

I discovered one and half year ago this restaurant by accident and I have been going there regularly every since. During this period of time I have almost tried all the dishes and drinks on their menu and can only compliment the Chef about the superb quality of food,German and Belgian beers.The meals in Gap's restaurant is as good as a restaurant in Switzerland so that is saying something. The portion of the food is huge so you better be on a diet before deciding eating several menu courses.Besides this I have taken friends from England,France Germany, USA over there and my friends want to return back again over there to try other meal. Go in there and take a beer or a glass of wine while you are waiting for your meal and enjoy your evening with good food wine and beer.You cannot expect to cook a haute cuisine in 5 minutes so do not complain if your meal takes 40 minutes to an hour if there are many people inside.Service is very friendly and the owner is a great guy to have a nice chat with while you are drinking or eating. We are damn lucky to have a Gap's Garten in Hatyai!

“Nothing but the best - Be there!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

I remember that night, when Sandoot (see his review) and friends spent some time at the Gap's. They did not eat there, they complained about the time they had to wait for the food and the restaurant was full. So what?

The Gap's is NOT a fast food restaurant. Every dish is made freshly or as we say "a la minute". And that takes time, effort and passion!

Whenever you go to Gap's it is something special. You and you friends will start with an apéritif and enjoy the evening. The food is absolutely fantastic, actually the best German food I ever savored in Thailand. My favorite are the "Rouladen", the "Spaghettis with salmon", and my daughter loves the Schnitzel with French fries. All dishes are served on exquisite plates and with appealing cutlery.

The selection of beer they offer is amazing. The owners and service staff work hand in hand to secure that your presence becomes a personal event. The Gap's is always worth more than one visit. Watch out, you even might get addicted.

As nothing can be 100%, here I must complain a little. They do not serve Campari Soda as an apéritif. But actually this is not a typical German drink either.

My friends and I will be coming back, whenever we feel like going to a decent place to eat out.
