Excellent Pork and Steak menu (much more I'm sure but thats meat was what I wanted). Good quality meat and wine. Better value than I expected.

Dropped by for dinner when we were searching for somewhere to eat and we're really impressed with the restaurant. Servers were really nice and welcoming, we were there for the Friday all you can eat BBQ buffet and it was absolutely delicious. Absolutely lovely food, great service and beer on tap! What more could you want? Fully recommended!

We enjoyed Duck with Tamarind Sauce & Grilled Salmon. Inexpensive (as most restaurants here are) but lovely flavours and service

Visited this restaurant once and unfortunately it will be our last. I ordered a pasta carbonara and my wife Swedish meatballs, which was ok. But the pasta was almost unbeatable. I know that carbonara might not be what you order in a place like Patong, but if it's that bad it shouldn't be on the menu. It's a nice and... More

The thai food had a strange taste. We ordered thai food and a pizza. Judging by the time of serving, the food was already cooked from before. The pizza (tomato sauce, cheese and ham) was expensive, almost 10€. I think the Thai people have started "waking up" and overcharge tourists.

We have been to Karlsson's in Karon and have been satisfied always. This is equally as good. The food is tasty and the surrounds are clean. The staff offer friendly service and the variety of Swedish and Thai foods give a wide choice of menu items. Toasted Skagen ( shrimp ) is a good start with beef and pork dishes... More
