We came to Red Café for lunch & it was extremely disappointing, I just don't get where the high rating comes from.

Three of the meals we ordered came reasonably quickly & were fine. My husband & son's meal took so long we almost gave up on them. Eventually the last two meals arrived & my son's meal was fries with hot dog & the fries were burned to a crisp, they were inedible.

This place is pretty cheap but the service here was poor & not what I'd expect from a place rated so highly on tripadvisor.

Hello. I am sorry that you got this service and that the fries was too crispy.
On monday 13:th january we are going to have a dedicated chef for that kind of food. We are also going to extend the menu one or two step further. I wish you come back another time, the lead time will for sure be quicker then.

Ate brunch here a few times during a recent 2 1/2 week stay in Kamala. Loved the breakfasts. Service was great with the staff being friendly and helpful and the food was a refreshing change from hotel breakfasts, being fresh and tasty with a great variety of fresh breads etc.... Take a walk and enjoy

I stopped by this café and was impressed by the courteousness of the staff. Their Swedish coffee is excellent! It is on a narrow street, so I had to park my car in the next soi, but for the average tourist who is walking, it is very accessible. The eating area is outside, with the area covered by canvass tent material. But even with the fans turned off, in the middle of the day there is a pleasant breeze.

Usually we dont argue about customers reviews, but in this case you are lying. We have an AUTOMATIC eggcooker which means the eggs cannot be overcooked, ever. 2 reviews about breakfast at the same day in two swedish coffee shops far away from each other in kamala? And you rate both with terrible rating? Come on, who are you actually? For your information we have around 30-40 people, locals, tourists, repeaters who eat our breakfast everyday. No complaints from them what so ever.
