Not terrible, not great, almost good. Service was particularly slow which doesn't necessarily bother me but when the staff gets around to you they made you feel like you were an inconvenience. I could have caught them on a bad night, but with so many other great options in the area I wont give them a second chance.

Outdoor is situated right on 2 main streets in Kata. Their menu is extensive and their prices are very good. As with most restaurants in Thailand, smoking is permitted at the table and this we found offensive being non smokers.

Our food was awful! I had pizza with hardly any topping which looked like a frozen one. My friend had spaghetti bolognaise that he says wasnt great. Service is poor without a smile! Very very noisy right on a junction so all you hear is constant motorbikes, cars and Tuk Tuks. Unfortunately we won't go back.

If cold, tasteless cheap food is your thing then this is the place for you. I ordered the BBQ ribs which were bones with some fat in between and some sauce poured over them. My wife ordered breaded fish and chips which was full of bones. Both meals came out cold but the laughable thing was the chips were microwave... More

We ate here twice as the menu choices are many and varied! The price is good too. Pizza and Pad Thai first time and both were great. Pad Thai (of course) and T-bone steak the second visit and the steak could have been a little more cooked, but it wasn't bleeding, so Hubby ate it anyway. It still was a... More

The curry crabs were to die for. Delicious!! The sauce for the grill squid and crab was very fresh and not from a can for sure. Will be back for other dishes.

Food was ok, nothing better. Prices were not great either. We ordered an extra portion of rice which was eventually brought out once we had finished meal. Much better places than here in the area.

I visited this place by chance as it was on the way into Kata with my wife. We were not sure where to go as this was on the way we stopped by and wished we had walked by. I order a pizza simple enough to make but it was horrible and did not taste as good. My wife ordered... More

I did and paid 390 baht for this small meal. I'm pretty sure it was a frozen pizza and the edge was burned to black. A dirty glass was changed without a word after i complained. Service was friendly when we passed by the restaurant, but when we were in, they didn't care anymore about us. Finished dishes remained for... More

Visited The Outdoor Restaurant for dinner. The place was always packed so thought it had to be amazing. Ordered a watermelon shake, pretty much just watermelon juice made to look fancy. Ordered tempura prawns as a starter. Way too much batter, not the best choice as a starter. I ordered Sweet and Sour Duck for my main. Was really good... More
