Firstly, let me emphasise the great service and friendly staff. The problem lies with the food and the over ambitious menu that does not deliver value for money. I ordered half a BBQ chicken with Danish style potato gratin and my vegetarian wife ordered the same potato gratin as a main course. The chicken was dry and the seasoning had... More

Good but not excellent, but for the price it's very good. The meals are very big so worth it. We had Thai food. The staff made it worth the visit as great with families. They entertained my children in there seats from the minute we arrived.

The staff are awesome! We was there 3 times åt our holiday. Food is good, with large meals. Service is excellent, price is ok. But the best part is the staff. If you visit more than once they remember you and give you extra service. They played with our kids, and sat down and had a chat. Go there! Espessially... More

We visited Butterfly Bistro a couple of times and had mixed experiences. Our first visit we found the staff to be super friendly and welcoming, and the food great, but less so on both fronts on our second visit. We ate Thai cuisine both times. Prices are reasonable and absolutely within the norm in the area.

We have been loving out authentic Thai food every night. We decided we better try something new. The greeters were aggressive but friendly. The menu tried to cater for every culture and need. We chose pizza and a hamburger. My pizza was ok with a very thin base. Unfortunately, our cocktail was not drinkable and the hamburger meat and dressings... More

The restaurant offers good food, the host is well spoken and the location is great. The pricing we did not find transparent and where charged 280 THB for a sticky rice and mango desert as this was not on the menu and found this very opportunistic. If you eat here be careful to check your bill carefully that you do... More

If you are in Karon you MUST VISIT this restaurant, we ate there every night during our 4 night stay in Karon recently. Just outside The Old Phuket Inn. CHAMP is a amazing guy so friendly. The food was great.
