We went there after reading the reviews on TA and we enjoyed it a lot! It is more exspensive than the average Thai Restaurant but that is what I would expect when I go for imported food in Thailand. The fillet steak in pepper sauce with fries is 750 thb, that is still much cheaper than it would be in... More

We had a diner here with 4 persons and a child. We took the menu with a starter, main course and a dessert for 890THB. Starter was with scrimps and toast, the main course a perfect pre paired steak with nice sauce, potatoes the choice you like and after that an ice cream. Very taste full, friendly and quick service... More

It's rare to get good steaks in this part of the world but Karlsson's makes us feel at home. I had the most juicy rib eye here, it was perfect! Just the way a proper rib eye should be. Great wine menu. A bit pricey but it's worth it especially after too many days of tom yam and noodles.

Hankering for some genuine Swedish food; being a Swede living in Australia for the last 35 years, this is a restaurant I go back to year after year when in Phuket. They serve genuine and tasty Swedish fare - highly recommend the beef fillet pizza and their Skagen toast.

I went to Karlsson's on two consecutive nights and both meals were outstanding. I had a rib eye on the first night and a rump on the second. I could not fault a thing. The wine list is also extensive and reasonably priced. The staff are friendly and helpful, as is the owner. A great restaurant that I will definitely... More

Although hesitant at first this proved to be one of our favourite meals out. The drinks and meals are so well priced and for the sizes and value that you're getting it's really fantastic. It's down a bit of a dodgy looking alley but there's some nice fairy lights and friendly staff to greet you there. Definitely recommend - I... More

We dined in Karlsson's a few times on our recent trip to Phuket and let me tell you that they have the best steaks in Phuket!!! Don't go to the recommended place's that say they are the best because they are not, we did and regretted it. Double the price and no where near as good. HINT one is in... More
