Reviewed December 27, 2013

Staying at the Pacific Club Resort, we used our 10% coupon and ate at Karon Cafe. We enjoyed all our delicious meals at Pacific Club so we thought we would try Karon Cafe.

We ordered steaks, ribs and pizza. The steaks were good and juicy. You can't expect 5 star steak at such low prices. It curves the craving for steak and ribs if that is what you are craving. The cheesy potatoes were delicious. My husband also had the same problem with his ribs - we repeatedly had to ask for his sides. We had to ask a few times before all three sides arrived (corn, beans, coleslaw). Not sure why they are not on the same plate as the ribs. The beans were not bbq flavour. Other than that - food, drinks and service were good. Nice location to people watch and listen to music.

Hi Ruby

I am pleased to read that you took advantage of the discount coupon. Thanks for letting us know that we have slipped up with one of our most popular dishes. Rest assured that this has been addressed. Just to be sure I will be regualarly ordering them myself (any excuse, I love them!).

“Average - By UK standards”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

I am not sure why the review below raves about the Steak & Rib combo I had this, my wife had the Rib Eye, and our daughter had a burger.

I am not sure if this is a good place by Karon standards which is why I gave it 3 stars, but by UK standards it was poor. I would have given it 1 star if this were a UK restaurant based on food only.


- The steaks were well seasoned and very tasty.
- The music opposite was pleasant
- No unpleasant after effects the next day.


- The Ribs were not very nice at all. Little meat and poorly seasoned.
- The steaks are only 200g which is tiny, and they cost about 450-600bht. £9-12
- I had to repeatedly ask for my BBQ beans and Corn on the cob, which came 10mins after the main meal. The beans were then standard beans and not BBQ type.
- There is no option for larger steaks which is strange in a Steak House.
- Toilets worst I have seen in Karon. No paper hand towels and one for Men and Women.

The Thai restaurants in the area are a fraction of the price and in my opinion much better value for money.

The burger was again ok.

I would not return here, and will be trying others in the area.

This is the first time I have left a review on TA as I felt that the glowing testimonies were wrong.

“Best steak ever”
Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

Me and my partner went here on our holiday after TA reviews well what a wonderful experience we had steak combo the ribs were so succulent cooked in there smoke house fresh. I've eaten in gaucho restaurants before and this even beats there steaks. Very reasonably priced also and the staff were very lovely. Ou won't regret a visit here.

“Good food”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We ate here and were generally pleased, Steaks were good, I would say there is better around though. We ordered starters which after 20 minutes were delivered just after our main course, which was a bit odd, we were 1 of only 2 tables in there at the time. May just have been a one off, i would go again to give them another chance to impress.
