“Really good steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We went to Karlsson's with friends in Phuket as we all felt like a steak - we have 2 kids and they have 3.
All 4 of us adults ordered steaks and they were fantastic. Big serves, cooked perfectly and we really enjoyed them. Prices were reasonable
Kids found nice options for dinner and were happy. The staff were lovely to the kids and even made them balloon animals and gave them lollypops.

The only downside is that the restaurant is really open at the front and numerous sellers approached us at our table while we were eating our meal. I think the staff should attempt to prevent this - I don't mind sellers on the street but to be hassled while eating is rude and annoying.

“Great Steak”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Just next door to Patong Beach Hotel down a little side street on right (right next store to Banana Walk Centre. Food great drinks a bit pricey (oh well) some staff do really need some training. Realise u have to learn - what for four years and still hopeless - to be fair only one or two.

“Good value, good food,”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We eat here a couple of times each visit to Phuket and have always found it to have good quality food, good size servings at very good prices...overall good value, whether it is Thai or European, it is always good. The staff are very friendly and speak English quite well. The only negative thing we come across is the number of people who smoke whilst you are eating, we try to take a table outside.

“Superb”

We both had the fillet steaks. I had the garlic and my wife had the pepper sauce. Both were out of this world.
