Top class. As an Irish 'local' in Patong, this is my favourite restaurant. I've been here with my wife many times and the food has always been exceptional, as has the service. My personal favorite is the cider roast pork belly, with the ribs a close second. A pint of lager is only 99 baht, the decor is authentically Irish (compared to other 'irish' pubs in the area), the staff absolutely lovely (I love Tiki), and the owner is a Dubliner. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable experience every time. If you're in Patong, I'd recommend a visit.

This restaurant has great decor and staff, but I wouldn’t recommend eating there. I ordered the Guinness pie and what a total disappointment. The first pie they brought to the table was brown on top pastry and raw underneath. The second one although better the pastry was still not thoroughly cooked, but at this stage I was so hungry I was prepared just to eat the filling. The filling was very bitter, I understand that cooking with beer can make food bitter but this was particularly bitter. Not only did the filling have caraway seeds in it (unheard of in a Guinness pie) but the potatoes were not quite cooked and they should have been deliciously soft. The gravy was not thickened so the consistency was more like soup. Then I bit into a piece of meat which was burnt to a cinder and I couldn’t get out if there fast enough.

The staff tried to make excuses by saying the chef was new, but making a pie is pretty basic for any chef. There was no sign of management at all.

My partner had the Tuesday rib special which was tender but served quite cold. These are obviously pre-prepared and warmed up in an oven before serving but in this case not enough time in the oven and were presented somewhat cold and soggy.

Local beer prices were average for Patong (which are expensive) but stay away from the Guinness, as at B342 with tax for a “pint” (maybe 500ml at best) AUD14.75 it is robbery!

I was most disappointed as the restaurant had come recommended by other hotel guests.

Irish pub with all you want from Ireland. So of you are craving this, that's the place you want to go. Not the cheapest place but if you miss it..... you have it all. Didn't really like the food, to greasy and portions were small. So value for money not found. The Guinness beer was not available..." they didn't deliver" how is that possible.... not such a good experience. But luckily there are many Irish pubs on the Island.

Just returned from Phuket where we visited this restaurant a few times for dinner. The staff greet you with a smile and make you feel very welcome, especially the children. Yes it is in the Jungceylon shopping centre and you probably do pay a premium however the menu is extensive and the food arrives at the table piping hot. fresh and full of flavour. Cleanliness and hygiene also appear to be to a high standard. Definitely recommend.

A very good central location in Jungceylon. Good decor, cosy and interesting. Staff were friendly and the beer was very good. Food was of good quality and well priced. Worth a visit.
