This is the kind of restaurant who got a little big in the head due to its popularity. After reading about the hype and looking at the queue every night, we decided to have a late lunch here to avoid the crowd. We were seated pretty quickly as there was no crowd. But it took ages for them to take... More

The food was lovely, but had just as good meals in the surrounding restaurants. The reason that it's so busy is because of the prices.... it's cheap. But I'd rather pay a bit more and sit in a restaurant that's clean. It's a bit grotty and smelly. Enjoyed the food wouldn't go again. Don't stand in the queue and at... More

About an hour later, I was first in line and the staff refused to seat me since I didn't take a number. There is no staff greeting you telling you... More

We waiting 45 minutes, excited about trying for first time. When we got to the front of the line, we noticed they were calling numbers. There were signs saying no... More

Worth the wait incase its fully occupied. Every thing we ordered was very good. Try their steamed fish in lemon chilly and tom yum soup for sure. They have a vast variety and its quite good.

Waited half an hour to get in. Food was overrated, no better than elsewhere in Karon. We had the prawn & chicken with rice in a pineapple and the beef panang. The panang wasn't too bad, but don't order the mild else totally tasteless!

We decided to visit the red onion after seeing people queuing. You pick a number up from the bar if there is a queue. Very busy restaurant. One of the best we visited the massamun curry was fantastic. All the food was very tasty and brought out speedily. Good prices for food and drinks.
