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 eat at Karlssons every 2nd week, since it is close to our appartment. The manager is very friendly and always comes over to say hi. Most of the staff has been working there for long and are always friendly. In the past 6 years I never had any bad meal here and for the quality (especially steak and pizza)... More

Nice and quiet location near at the beach. Popular with european travellers. Had set menu n:o 2 with toast skagen, veal and icecream. Was worth for money, tasty and enough for a dinner. Recommend for those not to be too anxious with thai food.
