“Good food in a buzzy atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Ate here a couple of times. Western style food was excellent, Thai style was great the first time, not so good second time around. Good sports bar atmosphere. Liked the look of the accommodation also.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Ate here a couple of times and the food was great. Highly recommend the grilled skewer with beef, pork and chicken. The pizzas are also pretty good. The restaurant is themed around motorcycles and the toilet, in a good way, is a must see.

“Awfull”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Hate doing bad reviews but this time i have to,,,Heard a lot about this place ,, read some of the reviews and looked forward to going there,,A group of 4 of us ( all bike enthusiasts) went for a meal and were very dissappointed and felt it not worth the time spent there,, the food was ordinary,, and the staff stood around very close, looking over our shoulder the whole time as if we were going to pinch something,, made us feel very uncomfortable,, definately would not go there again

“Not what it was”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

We visited here many times in our last two visits to patong in February and October and this time we looked forward to the new renovations. We went once for a drink to book a table for latter in the week for TA members. Found there were a lot of new staff and only Nicky and Kai were the only ones we knew. The new manager is very nice and helpful. The place has changed and can't put a finger on it but just not the same. On the dinner night one couple ordered food and nobody else asked so we ended up all eating at separate times. The pizza is still good but I had chicken with basil and it was too hot with chillies for me and also the chicken was dry. The company was great but the atmosphere was just not there this visit so unless it changes we won't be back I feel.

“Thanks Nicky”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Do yourself a favor and have a meal here. The atmosphere is unique with the selection of bikes around the place. We had Marsaman and Penang Curries one night and they both excellent. We travelled with four nineteen year olds and they said the burgers were awesome as well. Don't think you could go wrong at this place. Fully recommend it even though it is on the street so no air con.
