“Great food in Karon”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We returned to Karon Feb this year after dining here a couple of years ago and having great food there.
As usual they did not dissapoint, we ended up going there 4 times over the week the first time we had Thai food which was lovely, the second time the tables were all taken but we waited in the bar to the side and a table became availble pretty quickly.
I ordered Fillet Mignon and my husband ordered the Shnitzel, both were good but my hubby saw mine and wished he had ordered the same. Not to worry we went there again and he got his Fillet Mignon. The staff are good there and very swiched on.The guy who runs this restaurant runs it very well.
I would reccomend anyone visiting Karon to go there as it cannot be beaten for value and quality, I like it much more than the Buffallo Steak House and the crowds who flock here speak volumes.

“A great eating experience!”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

This stylish restaurant with its barrage of fans to keep you cool is just outside the Old Phuket Hotel & close to the beach strip. We went there 3 times during our 5 nights at Karon Beach as we found that the food was excellent, the portions big, & the staff friendly & helpful.
The owner, a Scandinavian, was most charming & makes a point of talking to all the guests.
The prices are quite high but so was the standard of the cooking, so we did not mind paying.

“It was ok, a bit overpriced”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

This place was ok but nothing special. We ordered two pizzas. They were ok. The service wasn't great, not very friendly.

“good food, surly service”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Steak was great, if a little cold but the wait staff looked miserable to the point of being reluctant to even come to your table to take the order. The free salad they offer with steaks ordered is best avoided unless warm coleslaw and soggy limp lettuce is your thing.

“Good food, but overpriced”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

Situated within walking distance of many hotels and less than 100m from Karon Beach.
Food is of a high standard, but compared to most other restaurants in the area, it's a bit pricey.
Recommendation: shop around, other restaurants offer better value for money.
