Great, inexpensive food. Drinks are well priced too. I need to learn to order as we eat, otherwise all the food comes at the same time, my fault. Chicken satays, garlic and pepper prawns ( more like salt and pepper), beef massaman was tender and tasty,special fried rice with pork excellent. Food service was a little slow, but the ladies...

Dear richard g thanks for giving us a good review, well received and I will make sure that all our staff know that their efforts are appreciated. Apologies if your food didn't come out as quickly as you would have liked, we were probably very busy cooking for other Chinese customers who traditionally ask for seafood meals which take longer...

Description
Nan and Dave Wilson invite you to join us at the Halfway Inn, a family oriented Thai Restaurant and Sports Bar in Patong located approximately 500 metres south of the Bangla Road Entertainment Zone in the Soi Kepsap triangle, directly opposite Jang Resort. The restaurant and bar are fully air conditioned (there's a smoking area outside) with a very clear "No drugs" policy. For your entertainment we have 5 independent satellite TV's showing Live Sports (AFL, EPL, NBA, NFL, NHL, NRL, Super 15, etc) at the weekend (Thursday to Monday), dart board, perfectly level pool table, and a selection of bar games. Our English speaking staff will keep you and your family entertained with stories and games. There's a pool competition every day from 8pm, the more the merrier. Every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday there is an awesome "FREE" BBQ from sunset to 8pm - there's no catch, we only ask that you enjoy a few cold drinks to cover the cost. The fact that we are packed on BBQ nights is testament to the quality of our food, and the pleasant environment we have created for you to relax and enjoy your well deserved break. Our a la carte menu is prepared by very experienced Thai chef's. With over 100 dishes to choose from, you can have your meal prepared to your own level of spice tolerance. For the kids or less adventurous, we also have a selection of "Farang" food - Aussie meat pies, cheese and ham toasties, fried egg sandwiches (egg banjos), nuggets and fries, and fast food delivery from Mc D's, Burger King, Pizza Hut, KFC.
