We visited on our last night in Phuket for dinner. My partner had the all you can eat ribs and steak, I had a coconut curry.
He really enjoyed his dinner and had plenty to eat, my curry was unfortunately a little bland.
The restaurant itself and staff could not be faulted, we also enjoyed listening to the singers across from the restaurant whilst we ate.

Dear Jane_od12,

Thanks for visiting and sharing !!.

We will spice up the curry a little bit as general rule. We serve so many nationalities who don't like very spicy food it makes things difficult to know which Guest likes more spicy. But if you like super spicy please request to have extra spicy.

Thank You,

Team KaronCafe' Steak Thai

Karon Cafe is one of the oldest steak and grill restaurant in Karon, me and my family live here nearby so whenever we go out to eat for western foods, this is the place to be. The services, the staffs here are very kind and polite and of course the food is also outstanding. You should definitely come to try here once!

Dear Baramirai,

Our meal here was reasonable if a little more expensive than a lot of other nearby restaurants. We were the only people in it as we were eating later than normal. As a result we had very speedy service and staff were attentive. But I can't say the meal was overly memorable.

Dear Annalieb2018,

Thanks for visiting.

I think if you compare to the most popular SteakHouses in Phuket our prices are at the lower end. And for a restaurant with cloth napkins etc. we'd love to know where is cheaper. We serve only AirFlown Australian Chilled beef for 30 years now. So we're not sure what you are comparing too.

Dear Michael T,

Thanks for visiting. Dry Smoking ribs takes 5-6 hours and so we smoke our ribs and then keep warm on the side of the charbroiler. We're sorry if your's weren't hot enough, it is a balance to keep them tender and warm at the same time. For 30 years we've been serving the All You can Eat Ribs Special. We can try to make sure yours are warmer next time.

On my many visits to Karon I have found it hard to get decent food as the Thais have a habit of over cooking everything. This place is an exception. After eating there multiple times I have consistently had high standard food. Prices are reasonable too.
