Good taste, good varieties. Menu with prices. Reasonably cheap. Very prompt service, considering the large numbers of customers at meal times. Seats are available on the 1st floor too.
Popular among the locals and tourists. Just tell any tuk tuk driver " Kan Eng " and you will be there in 5 to 10 mins.

Highly recommendable.

This is a restaurant that you must visit in Hatyai. The food is so delicious! Four of us ordered Tom Yam soup, mango salad, fried fish cake, braised pork leg and a vege. It only costs us about 750 baht in total including of white rice for four (60 baht) and a jug of sugar cane (65 bath). If you want to save more, don't order sugar cane, they will provide free sky juice for each table.

The dish I like the most is the braised pork leg. It has the smooth skin, the layer of fat that melt in my mouth and the tender meat! I know I shouldn't take too much of animal fat, but I just couldn't help with it. It is so yummy! I hope I could burn those fat with my frequent walking in Hatyai.

Tom Yam Seafood soup is very nice too. It is not too spicy and the sourness is just nice.

The mango salad is good too. The mango is crunchy with sweet and sour taste.

Fried fish cake is just OK, besides the nice aroma, nothing is special about it.

I would definely come back to this restaurant again as there are still many good dishes out there for me to try.

Kan Eng Restaurant must be one of the best in Hatyai because the place is almost full. The menu with picture and price has many varieties. But the menu is mainly in Thai language and limited English. This is not a problem as the server can speak English.

The food is generally tasty and delicious but a bit salty. We ate tom yum seafood soup, crispy fish maw salad, braised petai, fried fish cake with rice. Plus a bottle of sugarcane. It cost about RM50.00 for 4 pax.

Kan Eng Restaurant is located within walking distance (about 10 min) from Lee Garden Hotel. We went there on a wednesday but it was closed. So we went again on a thursday for dinner at 5.00pm. Kan Eng Restaurant signboard is written in chinese only.

I will definitely recommend to friends going to Hatyai.

Kan Eng Restaurant was highly recommended by both the tut-tuts and the bellboy in the hotel. It's not hard to see why. The place was packed with what seemed to be locals and tourists, and the service was fast and efficient. More importantly, the food was delicious and affordable. My family had their tom yam, fish maw soup, vegetables, rice and an extra dish I forgot. Together with their sugar cane bottle, the meal came up to about RM70+, which was very affordable considering the portions were generous and the food delicious.

Definitely a must stop for all visitors. Take care to go early, preferably no later than half an hour after opening (12.30pm for lunch I think, and 6.30 for dinner) as otherwise you may need to wait for a seat.

Also, they have a second floor open too, so be sure to check upstairs for seats.
