Very popular and the taste is the reason. These guys are awesome and the food is worth a trip to Karon in itself.

Great food but it's a busy and noisy road. Service is quick once you get a table but don't expect any charm.

A good restaurant on the main drag in Karon. A long wait to get in due to it's popularity (probably from reviews on here), but the food was good and the prices were very reasonable. Having eaten at many other places close by I can't say that Red Onion was outstanding in comparison but I understand the appeal at having... More

Very busy place, small queue but did not wait to long. Service very quick, pleasant staff. We had a grilled fish with the sauce on the side, which was fantastic. If you are in Karon it is a must try, may not suit everyone but we enjoyed it.

Don't let the title fool you, I can't categorically say it's the best in Thailand but it is certainly the best in the area around Karon. The food tastes fantastic, service is fast and polite and the price is fair. You may have to wait a little but it is worth the wait!

Recently had a delicious lunch there, the staff were lovely and attentive, and most of all the food was amazing. Every dish we had was flavoursome and appetising! I will definitely be back! Thank you Red Onion.

If you don't get there early,you are given a number and have to join a queuing system. The service is very quick and the food is lovely. Very cheap... More
