“Great food and wide selection of wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We've tried everything from Thai dishes, through pasta and pizza to steaks and Wiener Schnitzel. None of them disappointed! The huge selection of wine from Wine Connection means you're spoilt for choice and don't pay through the nose either. BYD Lofts is also a great place to relax with a bottle of wine after a meal elsewhere. You'll be made very welcome even if you're not dining.

“change specials”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Would like to see the specials board changed regularly and better description of what the dish is. Wine list is limited but have found that everywhere in Patong, a lot of sterotyping of variety: Sav Blanc for NZ, Chard and Shiraz for Aust which is a shame, appreciate that cant cover all the bases but suggest mix it up a bit with Pinot Grigio, Rieslings etc

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

We found this restaurant on our 2nd day in Patong Beach and enjoyed it so much we returned there several nights in a row. Located under the BYD Lofts apartments in a quiet street the restaurant provides a wonderful calming atmosphere. The staff were so friendly and helpful especially Jessica and the manager Harry. Every meal we had was delicious from western to thai food and reasonably priced. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for amazing food and excellent service.

“Not For Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The first time we ate here was for lunch and the 4 of us had various typical Thai dishes with chicken and beef which we found delicious and therefore decided to return for dinner one night.

Their apparent signature dish is the Seafood Hotplate as displayed on boards out side the retaurant and on menus. 2 of us had that and 1 just the prawns but sadly it all turned out awful , and dried out due to being overcooked.
If at home in Australia we would have sent these higher priced dishes back as they were barely edible.
Stick to non seafood dishes and you should be OK and in pleasant open air surroundings.

“BYD Restaurant - Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

I ate here a few times when I stayed at the BYD in June and was surprised that they didn't have their restaurant listed separately. I'm not staying at the BYD this time, opting for somewhere less expensive, but I can't keep away from the restaurant which is excellent. I look for quality, value for money, atmosphere, service and of course good food, and this place has it all and in my view is one of the best in Patong. Their problem is that it's just off a side road, so many people would not see it, but it's well worth a visit. Presentation of the food is superb, budget wines are reasonably priced and good quality, and the menu has both western and Thai options. Both are very good indeed. I will be going back at least 2 more times before i go back and plan to take some expat friends with me.
