We ate here as a group of seven family members as we were all craving a steak towards the end of our holiday in Patong. This was due to be a special meal, given that it is an expensive choice of cuisine. Upon looking at Trip Advisor we saw few specialist steakhouses in the area although decided to visit Karlssons...

Craving a steak on our vacation, we searched out our options but didn't want to pay an arm and a leg to eat. After reading the reviews we decided on Karlsson's and were not disappointed. After raising concerns about the steak sauces containing gluten to the waitress, the owner visited our table and advised the ingredients they used which put... More

Have been to Karlsson's Restaurant a few times on numerous visits and have always had great food and great service. Met the owner who remembered my family even the following year when we returned. Somewhat hard to find as it is down a back road, however the cowboy on the main road will always point you in the right direction.

We were welcomed with free mango dacquiris as it was my boyfriend's birthday which was a great touch. After 3 months of backpacking it was great to have a nice steak- and they didn't charge us for extra cheesy bread with the soup, nor did they whack on service and tax charges which was great (other restaurants in the area...
