I came here for a lunch after reading some of the reviews on here, the European man at the register (who I presume is the owner) barely acknowledged me when I entered, and the waitress who seated me was also very emotionless. I had order a Swedish sandwich and the meatballs, I requested the sandwich was brought to me first... More

If you want a great steak in Patong this is the place to go. The fillet steak and pepper sauce is a must. Great staff and service also. I highly recommend this place.

I've reviewed this restaurant before in years gone by, but worth another review as we always return here at some point during our holiday for a nice steak. I think the portions have shrunk slightly to maintain the price which isn't cheap. However the steaks are still very good as are the sauces. We always have ribeye with either bernaise... More

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

Serving was quickly. Next year we are going to book a room in this... More
