The staff service of Carabao is absolutely the worst in town. Internal fighting along staff. EVERY TABLE has 1 dish that is not served after everything on the table is finished. When you call for waiter they ask you to wait with impolite manners and...More

I have been going to this restaurant every week since my 6 month stay here. Brilliant food and very good value. The atmosphere is open plan and rustic that adds to the Thai experience. A must for anyone visiting JB

The moment you step into Kampung Carabao Restaurant, you will know that it is a very special place indeed. Made entirely of wood with interesting pieces of teak wood furniture, the ambience is truly relaxing. The restaurant can accommodate up to 200 person, whereby you can choose to dine on regular tables and chairs at the main dining hall or you may prefer to dine in a featured Chiangmai ”Kantoke” cubicle style seating (which is dining by sitting on the mats). The entire surrounding is very windy, and the choice of location evokes a sense of being on a beach resort. The architecture is a mix of Malaysians and Thai style inspired.
