Decent value steak

Had a pretty good steak here and was good value too. The steak was not top, top quality but was good enough and the bearnaise sauce was ok. Service was good and ambience was nice enough. You could do a lot worse in Patong.

I have visited karlssons many times and have always been impressed with the quality of food and friendly atmosphere of staff and Mr Kent the owner. The price is reasonable and the ambience is above average. 😊

Our friends skip this restaurant due to high prices, but we went to check it out. Food was avarage, you get same also in plastic chair restaurants. Not bad, but nothing special either. This is place for you if you miss swedish people.

We went and ate dinner here. They literally took two minutes to bring the food to the table. We ordered pork fillet it obviously takes longer than that to grill pork. The meal was cold and awful. Been to this place six years ago and the food was much better. Guess the swedish owners have made to much money and... More

Tucked away at the back of a "soi" off the beach road, serving steaks, pizzas, other European foods and Thai. The European man in charge is very personable and service from the Thai staff is efficient. Prices are normal for the location and I can recommend the steaks and Thai, though did not try their other offerings.
