We ate at the Karon café a few times over our recent visit and was it was always a pleasant experience. The food is of very good quality and l suggest you have to try the all you can eat ribs - you have to be hungry. This restaurant caters for couples to families and has a great range of... More

An amazing Restaurant, fantastic staff with awesome service. We had Rib Eye Fillet Steak, medium rare just perfect 👍 This would be the best meal we have had during our stay in Keron. Thank you so much we will be back and we will be telling our friends 😀

After several days eating Thai food, we tried Karon Cafe for some non Thai food. The reviews on Tripadvisor had glowing reviews - which is what prompted our visit. We ordered steak / ribs / chips / burger. These do not compare to any western fare you'd get elsewhere in Bangkok/Kuala Lumpur/Singapore/Australia/USA. The steak was dry (despite being medium rare),... More

Been here a few times with my wife and teenage son, had lunch and a couple of drinks. We were really happy with the lunches we had. My wife had a couple of cocktails which were presented well. Staff were lovely and we found the place very clean and tidy.

The staff remembered us from 2 years before when we last visited.They have the most amazing seafood cocktails, the prawns are the biggest we have ever seen! All food here is of excellent standard, and they don't keep you waiting very long in between courses.

This place looked great on the outside, but failed to live up to reviews. Drinks were good, food was average. Fish had a orange batter and tasted weird. Steak was good but small. Both were meant to have coleslaw, but had a few weird vegetables. Kids had nachos and were not over impressed. Plenty of other places in area worth... More

Thanks for your comments. We will look into the fish and chips. Actually it's not a bad recipe and lot's of people love it. As for the steaks, we are one of the only restaurants in Phuket which actually sells Australian chilled beef as we advertise. Most places lie and serve you Thai Beef. Hence the portions might not be... More

Ate here twice as our 5 year old liked the hot dogs and salad bar. Husband enjoyed the steak one night (tasty and cooked to his liking, however fairly small) and ribs another night. I had chicken with cashews and fried rice and "crispy" fish and chips.... not crispy, but still tasty. On our 2nd visit there were 3 other... More

Thanks for visiting and mentioning we are not expensive. We are committed to providing a good food and beverage service with no bells and whistles or high prices. But we are getting ready for a major menu revision, but not a price increase. Being the oldest continuously open foreign owned restaurant in Phuket (since 1989) and combined with the fact... More

This was a clean and well priced restaurant. The food was tasty, but the steak was a little bit chewy but cooked the way it was ordered. Well worth visiting :)

Thank you for visiting. I would kindly appreciate you messaging me if possible and tell me which steak you ordered cause we use only Airflown Fresh Chilled Australian Beef and we'd like to track down why you felt it was chewy. And also, Thanks for mentioning we are well priced. After 27 years of continuous service we have a few... More
