If you stay at karon try this restaurant. I promise you can find best quality food and friendly atmosphere there. Make sure you try steak which is marinated well. I am sure you will go back there again.

I have been staying in Patong for a week. Eaten at this restaurant on multiple occasions. Customer service has been amazing and every meal has been delicious. All of the staff have been welcoming and a credit to the restaurant. The ambience at night is memorable!

We went there for dinner with some friends from Denmark on their recommendation. We were pleasantly surprised as we have been visiting Phuket since 1999 and have never eaten here. The Skagen prawns were divine and I loved the Swedish main courses.

HingHoy and I decided as we were staying in Phuket for a few days, that we would eat at a few restaurants and sample their delights. I can most definitely recommend Karlson's. We both enjoyed our food very much. The service was also Excellent

Excellent Pork and Steak menu (much more I'm sure but thats meat was what I wanted). Good quality meat and wine. Better value than I expected.

Dropped by for dinner when we were searching for somewhere to eat and we're really impressed with the restaurant. Servers were really nice and welcoming, we were there for the Friday all you can eat BBQ buffet and it was absolutely delicious. Absolutely lovely food, great service and beer on tap! What more could you want? Fully recommended!

Thank Jules C
