“Why is this No 1?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We decided to go here based on TA reviews, we now know that you are offered a free drink if you give them a good review on TA (if you come back for one!) The service was friendly & attentive, the food was very average, selection of dishes chosen for our table of 4 was calamari starter, pepper steak (nice steak, bland sauce), lamb shank on mash w vegies was ok but no particular taste overall, just ok!, (must say vegies with both steak & shank were v nice, but were minimal) spaghetti bolognaise with light tomato sauce, no meat, was v bland, creme brûlée for sweets was v average and certainly wouldn't order again. Rooftop area is great but can be crowded if buffet/BBQ dinner is on & is also v noisy, not good for intimate dining or conversation if too close to live music, would not go here again when so many other options that aren't as pricey

We do of course remember your visit to our restaurant and are at a bit of a loss when it comes to some of your comments. When you arrived it was BBQ night and the restaurant was very busy. We had live music on which we do only on Sundays.
The table was personally looked after by our manager and we were told you were very happy with everything, including the desserts for your children which were not on the menu. The gentleman even got up with the band and requested a song that was played at their wedding. You all stayed in the restaurant for over 3 hours watching the band.
As for the offer of a free drink for a good review this is emphatically not true. We have a special offer on at the moment offering customers a free starter or dessert with their main course if they revisit the restaurant in next 2 weeks of their stay.

“Very Impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Had an great meal in Patong last night, friends recommended that my wife and I try the food at the Climax Restaurant in the Bangla suits hotel. it was fantastic. We both had a calamari starter (highly recommended). I had the Filet Mignon as a main while Janet had the Rock Lobster. both were delicious. the whole evening was great though,. the friendly staff, stylish surroundings, not to mention the great views of patong in the evening from its roof top location. this defiantly gets our thumbs up and its safe to say it wont be our last visit.

“Great food, excellent atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

We visited The Climax Restaurant last Sunday night for their 399 baht all you can eat bbq dinner. It was great. Big selection of meat including prawns, kebabs, pork steaks, chicken and heaps more including salad. The atmosphere is great on the roof and if you go early enough you can watch the sunset over Patong. Plus this restaurant/hotel is tucked down a side street on Bangla Road and you can't even hear the noise. Staff were all very attentive & manager David was extremely friendly & nice. Even made sure to find us a table when we arrived to the pretty much full restaurant. Bbq starts about 7ish, either get there early or book first to get a table as it gets pretty busy. Bbq nights are Thursday & Sunday with other specials on different nights. Great restaurant and we will definitely go back again.

“Makes me wonder too?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

We found this place to be slightly seedy, a bit like an up market bordello. Having read the reviews, we headed up and were shown to a table. At first in the low light it looked ok, but when you sat down the fixtures and fittings were shabby to say the least. The service was ok, but the food was pretty much the worst we've had in Patong. It turns out this hotel belongs to a time share company, who has a large staff base in the locality. I wonder, just like the reviewer below?

We are of course all entitled to our own opinions but an "up market bordello" seems pretty far off the mark. The design may not to be to your taste but I think your comparison is ill founded. As for the food you are again in a very small minority of customers who enjoy the menu night after night and those who have left any comments on this board and others. We work extremely hard at providing a quality service and menu for all and welcome all points of view to enable us to improve wherever we can in providing that service.

“Amazing Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Amazing food and chilled out restaurant with relaxing atmosphere just off Bangla Rd.
I would say this is my favourite place so far. The staff are very good and the food exceptional, i had a tenderlion cooked medium and it was perfect, everybody in our party was happy and they even supplied a cake for my friend who's birthday we were celebrating. Top marks. We will be back soon.
