“Great restaurant, best steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

If i want to have a steak I go to Karlsson, best meat is to be found at Karlsson.

An other good thing - kids never been complaining about their food.... Doesn't happen too often ;-)

Staff there is awesome as well, welcoming and friendly.
its a really nice place to enjoy a great dinner.

I'll be back for sure

“Favorite spot in Karon Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

I have been going to Karon Beach for about 14 years now.I usually spend 4 to 6 weeks there.The beach is nice but it needs to be cleaned more at high season.My favorite hangout is Karlsson's Restaurant. It caters to the Swedish tourist market(which is huge in Thailand) and it has a great menu(which I know by heart)! They serve a great rib eye steak cooked exactly as one likes it.Their lunches are great also--the pizza here is really tasty.The service here is the best on the beach--very personable and outgoing wait staff who have been here many years with little turnover--a testament to smart ownership to keep great staff in a very competitive market. It is located on a quiet street with mostly foot traffic (good people watching) and there are no sewer smells that are very often noticeable at other restaurants.It is clean and safe here. Great value for money and many many repeat customers.
