Just arrived in Phuket today. This was the first air con place we came across we were the only couple inside I should have known something was wrong
The portion sizes were tiny. We went to McDonald's an hour after eating here Over priced small portions of food and then a fixed 10 percent service charge plus a tip
If this place was not in a tourist hotspot it wouldn't last 5 minutes. When we left the Irish bar round the corner was full and the food looked really good when we were walking past.
My advice would be to eat elsewhere

Absolute Jung Ceylon Pub got new Chef and new Staff and should be much better noted ...
Was over there with friends, they got a 38 kilogram Merlin, from their fishing tour and Alain prepared us yummy Fish Salad as Starter and Fish stakes for 10 people !
Last week I was at this place with my French Friends and we opened a bottle of Champagne and took Dinner afterwards, very good and beautiful presented !

This bar in the back of the Millium Center, Patong Beach, is the blokes ideal haven in a forein land. This is a clean, airconditioned, friendly, and well managed bar/restaurant. Be served freezing cold beer of a number of popular flavours, including Shinga, by attractive friendly waitresses (not wanting to tag you as a client for the night). The food is sensational, prepared quickly, and includes a balanced mix of local curries and salads, with traditional western food, such as steaks, schnitzels sandwiches etc. This place serves exeptional Fries (French Fry style) and has the sensitivty to provide Tomato Sauce/Ketchup with them to match real western palate.
Solid background music based in Rock & Blues, provides a calm atmosphere in which to play pool on any one of the several regular size tables available. If the sheen does happen to wear off due to the need for a different brew, the Irish Pub is just next door, anyone for a Guiness ?

Absolutely terrible food, wouldn't even feed it to an animal.
Ordered a hotdog which by the picture looked edible, received a cold hotdog with plastic cheese and what seemed to be onion from the day before.
The only thing hot was the bun, and that's because it was burnt.
Ridiculous.
Overpriced and absolutely horrible experience, and a 10% service fee.. but no decent service. How hard is it to smile?
Steer clear, absolute waste of money.

My daughter and I had the bad luck of entering this place, that looks okay from the outside but once you are seated, wow, what a place.

From experience we asked if the ordered pizza´s were homemade and not microwaved, which the waiter promised was the case. Once food arrived we could see that the pizza probably was taken home frozzen from Big C, also in Jungceylon. We took one bite and left the rest. A thaifriend was presented with some thaidish, that she simply would not touch. She was afraid of getting a bad stomachache - as she put it.

We asked for the bill and - surprise - it was filled with beverages we didnt order. To set this straight they brought us the drinks that we never ordered ...

I ask for the manager - some french guy called Alain - that was almost threatening and very unpleasent. Dont think he showered for days even.

Stay away from this dump. Its a turisttrap of the worst kind.
