“Good Sports Bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

Nice place to what sport, friendly owner and good food.
Seemed like a few local expats were there, which is usually a good sign of consistent quality.

Open front so was a bit hot but nice place.

“No food because we arrived very late but so friendly, helpful and great staff!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

We arrived into our villa in BangTao late Saturday evening to be met by an electrical black out so decided to go for a walk and try to find somewhere open with a generator... First and only stop needed was Sugar Reef, cold beers quickly provided by smiling staff and then Jamie the owner came over to say hello, we asked about food but he explained kitchen had been closed earlier (it was midnight by then!!) however nothing is too much trouble for this bar, one of the girls jumped on her moped and arrived back 15 minutes later with a feast of Thai food from a recommended local eatery, more beers and the food were washed down whilst watching the premier league football on the giant screen (1 of a few) Jamie then even dropped us back at the villa which had then had the power restored. We popped in again a few days later to maybe hook up for a friendly golf game that the bar organise, once again unbelievable attentive service but sadly the trip took over a bit and we never got enough time to get back!! Sorry Jamie but we will return and one of our first stops will be your fantastic friendly bar...

Sugar reef is a great family run bar/ restaurant with a friendly warm environment and excellent food. I Had a wonderful Xmas day there and the food is fabulous and good value, definitely worth a visit if you're in Phuket

“How to screw up a hamburger”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

In short - one of the worst places we've been to.

The longer version is that the only semi decent dish was the onion rings. The rest was not tasty and especially the hamburger patty which tasted tasted like onions and definitely not like a hamburger. I didn't have anything to eat in 10 hours so I ate it but my kids showed more character and declined it all together.

Service was poor as well but to their credit the manager took the dishes we returned off the check.

Very dissapointing

How embarrassing! If I had seen what the kitchen sent out beforehand then it would not have been served.
After the great reviews we have recieved for our burgers the most recent being The "Think Design" review to say I am appalled is an understatement.
I am personally reviewing the recipe that the chef used and will be making any adjustments that I think are neccessary.
I offer you my most sincere apologises that you had to experience such a burger!

Tropical Regards

“Sunday Roast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

We visit Phuket annually and we always make a point of having at least one meal here. This time we had Sunday dinner which was excellent. Jamie is a great host and the food is good. We'll keep going back! David
