Authentic good quality food served fresh every time, nicely presented and great service at an amazingly low price that easily rivalled some of the more expensive restaurants in Phuket. Waiters were always friendly, attentive and definitely service delivered service with a smile, it was so good we landed up eating here 3 times during our holiday.

We had lunch here on our last day. We were actually shocked at how cheap it was! I had Pad Thai Chicken that was 60 baht and was very tasty! My boyfriend had a delicious, generous chicken burger (70 baht) that they didn't even charge us for extra cheese. Excellent value and great, tasty food with very very good service!

delicious cocktails for 99 bt, authentic food, well presented and served quickly. The seafood and curries all excellent. Fantastic vantage point on the Main Street near the temple. Waiters were friendly and knowledgable. Second time here in our week stay in Karon.

We had really enjoyable dinner here. Choose our own fish, prawns and calamari from out front. Delicious flavours with ample sides. Free salad bar was good. Waiters attentive and happy. Great vantage spot for the busy street and very reasonable price. Will return.

The food at Sweet & Sour is very tasty and reasonably priced - Pa Nang Chicken (100 baht), Tom Yum Chicken (100 baht) and fruit shakes are 60 baht. The only issue is wait time. We waited 45 mins for our food in a restaurant that was only a third full. We almost considered leaving but just as we decided... More

We are currently staying near the Karon beach. During 1 week of stay we visited different restaurants to try and compare Thai food. Yesterday we tried Sweet and Sour Restaurant for dinner. I saw the reviews about bad Western food in this restaurant, but I'm not sure why one would come to Thailand to have Western food! My rating is... More

My fiance and I have been here in Karon for more than a week and have eaten at a different restaurant for each dinner. We have not really had any bad experiences but then again I don't bother eating any western food because really, why come to Thailand to eat pizza or fries??? I can't say exactly why, but I... More

We ate here a couple of times during our stay in Karon, both times the meal was excellent, free salad bar for starter and two for one cocktails meant a very reasonably priced evening meal with a couple of drinks

We had lunch here one afternoon. We chose this restaurant as it looked nice. Both myself and my husband ordered Thai food (I had chicken with noodles and he had a Thai green chicken curry) which was perfectly acceptable. The bill was very reasonable but not sure we would go back. Service was okay.
