What a charming family restaurant! Curries are fantastic and the owners were so kind and hospitable. They even offered to drive us back to our hotel when no taxis were available. We will definitely visit again.

I checked the reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to visit. It is a bit far from centre but with a motorbike, only took us 5 minutes to escape from the crazy Bangla area and enjoy this peaceful atmosphere. We were first welcomed by the little cute dog, the waitress was nice, the food was just perfect-first time not spicy thai... More

Stumbled across halfway inn whilst going for a ride. Great place to sit back, relax and have a drink with the fresh air breezing through. We were greeted immediately with friendly smiles from several staff. Got to choose if we wanted to sit at the bar, table or a bamboo cabana, needless to say cabana won!! I ordered the Penang...

  • Address: 19 Sirirat Road | (next to The Hill Resort), Patong, Kathu, Phuket 83150, Thailand

Description
We are pleased to announce that, on the 2nd October 2016, we relocated 'Halfway Inn' to the grounds of The Hill Resort, Patong, which is 450 metres past Christin Massage on the left hand side of the road heading South towards Karon, directly opposite PS Hill Resort. To avoid confusion the new place will be known as 'Halfway Inn - The Hill Resort' on popular social media. The old place will still serve bar snacks and drinks and is known as 'Halfway Inn Bar'.

The indoor covered restaurant has a very traditional Thai theme with 10 individual 6 seater salas (bamboo huts) for 60 diners, 12 standard tables providing seating for 48 customers, and a central 'Bamboo Bar' with stools for around 20 punters. There is also a large sports bar area with 2 pool tables, 2 large screen TV's, a 2 metre wide projector screen and enough space for a 5 piece live band. Outside there are a further 3 salas with seating for 18 customers and what will be a covered BBQ sala.

There is spacious off-road parking for up to 5 cars (or minibuses) and 30 motorbikes and easy access North (towards Phuket Town and Kamala) or South (towards Karon, Kata, Chalong and Rawai). There is also an access ramp for disabled customers at The Hill Resort reception steps (although, admittedly, it needs some improvement).

Customers, old and new, will welcome the fact that we have paid attention to the few negative reviews we have received on TripAdvisor (and constructive criticism from our regulars). There is now much more space between different dining groups, excellent washroom facilities, and (optional) segregation between the restaurant and sports bar areas (in one half you can enjoy what games are going on while dining and listening to the music whereas the other will be more discrete).

There are also comfortable rooms available at The Hill Resort, which is currently being renovated, bookings can be made online or in person. Bed and Breakfast prices are reasonable, the pool and rainforest surroundings are very pleasant, with a swim up bar, jacuzzi pool and kids pool. Some of the rooms on the upper levels have views over Patong Bay.

Nan is enthused by the fact that can now create her mouth-watering dishes from a very large, modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances, the size of our existing restaurant / bar area in Soi Kepsap. We are both excited by the opportunities this new property offers and we trust that all our customers, old and new, will enjoy their visit here.
