We walked past the restaurant and decided that because it was so busy it must be good. We started our meal with a salad bar starter and then had Entrecote steaks, chips and salad.
We noticed that the price of the steaks was twice that of our hotel restaurant and the Papayas restaurant where we had previously had a lovely pepper steak but we thought that perhaps the size of the steaks would justify the cost.
However, when they came we were disappointed they were smaller, not as tasty and were not as tender. There was nothing on the plates to justify paying twice the price of our usual restaurants.
We won't be going back again.

Excellent food!!! I could not expect more out of any restaurant in Thailand. Be aware of the restaurant next door that that tries to do some kind of a bad copy of this good restaurant.

We decided to try the Buffalo in Karon on a friend’s recommendation because she raved about the steak there. I was eventually surprised by our experience because I rarely find good steak cooked well in Asia. When we arrived the place was packed and we were worried that we would not get a table. We were greeted quickly and luckily a table near the front became available. The table was quickly re-set and we were seated and given menus within 5 minutes of arriving.

We ordered the Australian Sirloin Medium Rare with Garlic Sauce and Idaho potatoes as well as the filet minion on a bed of mashed potato. The meat portions were a little bit small but this is not unusual in Asia. I found the sirloin was slightly under cooked but was tender and delicious while the filet minion was perfectly done. The garlic sauce was tasty and did not overpower the flavour of the meat and the Idaho potatoes were great. The mash potato was delicious, light and creamy.

An interesting side note was that our table at the front of the restaurant was literally road-side with a narrow 1m wide footpath and a low balustrade separating us from Patak road. We early learnt that dogs roam freely throughout Phuket and although perhaps not protected by religion, culture or law seem to have free run of the place. Halfway through our meal two separate dogs looked up at us from just the other side of the fence.

Terribly cute with sad forlorn “please feed me” eyes it took all our will not to toss something over to them. Mindful of other patrons and perhaps drawing the ire of the maitre’d we resisted the temptation but noted that the staff were not interested in what the dogs were doing even when they passed through the balustrade. Later after paying the bill I found one of the scamps sleeping on the floor behind my chair!

I read with interest some of the other more negative reviews but fortunately that was not our experience. Despite the presence of the dogs we had to agree with the recommendation that brought us to the Buffalo and would happily recommend the Buffalo Steak house in Karon to our other friends, Enjoy!

We has memories of a bad dining experience at this restaurant 4 years ago and have not been back since. But my wife convinced me that 4 years is a long time and there were a few people sat outside eating, so we thought we would give it a go.

We are a party of 4 people and we stood by the front doors for about 4 minutes before a lady came over and asked us if we wanted a table. We said that we did and we pointed to an outside table for 4 and we sat down. A few minutes later she bought a menu over then threw one down in front of each of us and disappeared back inside - we wanted to order drinks first whilst we perused the menu but ..... never got a chance to ask.

After a wait of almost 10 minutes, no staff had returned to our table (and they were not even half-full) and we watched one couple read the menu outside, look to come in and because no-one approached them, they walked away.

Finally, with no-one bothering to come back to us we decided that it was time to go and promptly stood and left - to STILL no-one acknowledging us.

I can only guess that this restaurant is in the fortunate position of not needing patrons because the way it is hemorrhaging patronage is comical.

We will not - even in four years' time - give this place another chance!
