“Expensive but worth it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

I was invited here by friends who have been coming to phuket for years the food was amazing thats if you want something different than thai food for a change. But what ever you do, DON'T ask them to do anything different than what is on the menu. I asked them to slightly change a cocktail that was on the menu and that was so complicated that in the end it was easier to just have the one on the menu. But i will go back as the atmosphere, decor and staff were friendly enough!

“Great food and wide selection of wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We've tried everything from Thai dishes, through pasta and pizza to steaks and Wiener Schnitzel. None of them disappointed! The huge selection of wine from Wine Connection means you're spoilt for choice and don't pay through the nose either. BYD Lofts is also a great place to relax with a bottle of wine after a meal elsewhere. You'll be made very welcome even if you're not dining.

“change specials”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Would like to see the specials board changed regularly and better description of what the dish is. Wine list is limited but have found that everywhere in Patong, a lot of sterotyping of variety: Sav Blanc for NZ, Chard and Shiraz for Aust which is a shame, appreciate that cant cover all the bases but suggest mix it up a bit with Pinot Grigio, Rieslings etc

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

We found this restaurant on our 2nd day in Patong Beach and enjoyed it so much we returned there several nights in a row. Located under the BYD Lofts apartments in a quiet street the restaurant provides a wonderful calming atmosphere. The staff were so friendly and helpful especially Jessica and the manager Harry. Every meal we had was delicious from western to thai food and reasonably priced. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for amazing food and excellent service.

“Not For Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The first time we ate here was for lunch and the 4 of us had various typical Thai dishes with chicken and beef which we found delicious and therefore decided to return for dinner one night.

Their apparent signature dish is the Seafood Hotplate as displayed on boards out side the retaurant and on menus. 2 of us had that and 1 just the prawns but sadly it all turned out awful , and dried out due to being overcooked.
If at home in Australia we would have sent these higher priced dishes back as they were barely edible.
Stick to non seafood dishes and you should be OK and in pleasant open air surroundings.
