I ate here a few times during my stay, lunch times only. The wifi was free and quick and the menu was broad. I only ate Thai dishes here which were all tasty, if a little under spiced!! Prices were good and staff were lovely and friendly

“Excellent casual family restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Butterfly bistro was one of the standout eateries in Karon. Generally I found the local restaurants looked very unappealing, but was very happy to find the Old Phuket street with a few decent looking options. Butterfly was recommended and lived up to the recommendation.

The staff are the main drawcard - very happy, smiley and friendly and really go out of their way to make you and your children welcome.

Food is good and very reasonable. If you like spicy, make sure you let them know as they tend to tone down the traditional Thai dishes to appeal to western tastes, but will make it spicy if you prefer.

Good Singha beer on draught as well which is nice after a week on bottled and canned.

“Friendly staff and delicious food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

Very friendly staff, listened carefully our wishes for the food. When the restaurant is full, you have to wait a bit for food, they also said that all of the desserts cannot be prepared. Worth the waiting though!We went here many times!

“Yummilicious meal...!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

Loved eating here. Food was delicious and appetizing. The pizza was yummy with a crunchy crust. The burger was big and sumptuous. The service and quality of food were good. Value for money. Certainly would recommend to others.

“An amazing bistro with happy, friendly staff and delcious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

We chose this bistro based on the request of two tired children wanting to veg out and eat with the view of the cartoons on tv and boy are we glad we chose this place. The food was absolutely beautiful and the staff were incredible! My daughter was mainly eating the salad from her meal so they brought out another whole plate of salad for her to eat much to her delight!
The staff also played the connect 4 game with our children and were so great with them overall. It also offers free wi-fi. We had a wonderful experience here and wish we had more time to be able to come back for another meal!
