“How can it get more than 1 star???”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 via mobile

How is this place could possibly be rated higher than 1 star???
Its the worst food i ever had to try in thailand during my 3 visits here.
Caprese salad is made with soft sliced cheese for burgers ( yeah, those in plastic wraps you get in any store). Fries were oily and old.
Pizza was so decent with more dow rather than stuff on it.

Absolutely no go!

“Quality!”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

Hakan’s is a Swedish Restaurant in Karon Beach Area. We have eaten here on a few occasion over the last 2 summer trips. It is small restaurant complex just off main Rd and the beach. We stayed each summer in a hotel close by to Hakan’s and would pass it every day so it was inevitable that we would eat here and I’m glad we did. Each time we ate here the price got more reasonable, the staff got friendlier and the food quality kept getting better and better. The menu had a wide variety of choices with some Swedish dishes (try the Swedish meat balls) and very good Thai & Italian food as well.

The beer is chilled and cheap and the cocktails are tasty. There is small open air sports bar area too.

See you again Hakan’s!

“take care with pricing”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

what a rip off, be careful of the spruiker and the specials. they are only worth the 95 Baht price as they are smaller in size. beware beware the price of the drinks!!!!!!!! it is 2 X that of the bars around the corner from the roundabout.
service is nothing special compared to what is available in karon.
will not be eating here ever again, and we visit every year.
