Good for western food 'hit'

If you've been in Asia a while & need a western food fix, Safety Stop is a good bet. Bangers & mash & burger were awesome! The prices are approaching western but that's the same everywhere. Cider choices are better than most too. I read somewhere it has a 'lucious beer garden' this is a bit over... read more

Good food all around and the burger and sandwiches are really great for diving breaks...the lemon mint drink is also very good.

Safety Stop Pub has a really good vibe and awesome food. I come here regularly to eat and drink and to hang out as the regulars and the staff are really friendly and there is always someone to talk to! The thai food here is a decent price, I highly recommend the chicken cashew nut and panang curry! I have... More

Stop here for a bite as soon as you get off the ferry, great thai food and very nice take-away sandwiches. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. Try the "Don Pedro", it's amazing.

If you're in the area and get a craving for some good old Western Food this could be the place for you, friendly staff, show the sports and decent prices what's not to like!

Are here several times and would highly recommend it to anyone in the vicinity. Nice chilled out location and a really impressive menu. Probably the best western food in Mae haad.

Decent western food for the island. Staff always generally nice. If you're hanging around the port in Mae haad worth going in.

I have been coming here for a few years. It is a great place to meet up for a beverage after diving. The food is great whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner. I also think it is the only place on Ko Tao that makes billtong, thanks for that Brian. Also if you ask nicely at 08:00 Am or Wan... More

On an island with so many restaurants, stalls, shacks, and bars the safety stop pub can always be counted on for a decent meal at a decent price. They're located right on the beach near the pier making them very convenient to find. I've eaten many a meal or snack here and never been disappointed in the food or the... More

After our delicious breakfast we decided to go for dinner. Big mistake! The wait staff lingered around waiting to take our order which became an annoyance. Our bruschetta was average. My boyfriend and I both ordered the pie, one chicken the other steak. My boyfriends meal came about 10 mins after the starter which was fab but mine never turned... More

Dear RBennett95, Thank for taking the time to let us know about your experience at Safety Stop. The waiter in question was fired after an unpleasant and short time with us. Thankfully he has gone. He not only messed up your order, but also was rude too. I found out too late unfortunately. I apologize for the bad experience on... More
