“Who's the Chef”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Mixed feelings about this restaurant. The location, just short of the beach and only a short walk to Old Phuket Resort, was excellent and the staff very helpful.
Of all things as a change I had a hamburger which was juicy and delicious, surprisingly fresh bun and a tangy sauce. I had it again the next night, hmmm, not so good, over-cooked, dry and a stale bun almost as if someone else had taken the apron and hat.
On a positive though well-priced and my wife's Thai Chili chicken was fine and so were the noodles.

Very nice food, Thai and European excellent service and the best chicken wantons, be sure to order them. Lovely spot to sit outside and watch the world go by and the sun go down.

“Good food for price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

My Father and I kept going back for Massaman curry, very good for foreigners who can't handle spicy. Favourite drink was definitely pina colada and I didn't find a better one throughout my stay.
As with many of the other restaurants affiliated with Old Phuket, the language barrier was terrible, very difficult to order but better than some of the other restaurants in which they served us the wrong dish numerous times.

“Pretty dire”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

Pretty dismal experience, nicely located on the seafront but for the overriding smell of sewage wafting in at regular intervals. Food mainly was average and a little overpriced apart from one dish which was absolutely inedable. The service was probably the worst thing about this place to get someone's attention was a mission in itself and then when you did getting anything you wanted understood was entirely impossible. Really felt unwelcome here when the staff were all too busy eating and drinking to serve the tables Never again

“Lovely food..staff communication difficult”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

This was the first place we ate at Karon beach. The position, menu and the meal were nice.. Staff pleasant BUT getting through to them that I could NOT have chilli in a meal was difficult. They put it in and when I pointed it out.. they took the meal away and actually picked the chilli out.. needless to say i didnt eat that night..since the sauces and meat was infused with it anyway.
Better of the places we ate at
