Has an odd atmosphere that doesn't feel very welcoming. The sandwiches and drinks are just as good as they serve in Patong, but the staff and surroundings don't quite cut it.

Come back! Come back!

Once the staff gets to know you, I bet you'll find the shop is as welcoming as any place in Thailand.

We had some specific problems/challenges with the new Chalong shop. It cost a fortune to get rid of the echo, but I think we've managed to do it. (You may not like the fabric pattern, though - I'd certainly understand that!) We built a meeting room that's rarely used, so we're trying to make it more inviting. It would've been nice to extend the wood floor to the whole shop, but it's prohibitively expensive.

Any other suggestions are always most welcome! woody (at) khun woody dot com ...

If you need a quick bite to eat and check emails then here is a good place to stop, offering custom built sandwiches as well as fresh shakes and good cofffee. You can relax and fill up while checking emails or just sit and read a book!

God am I sick of mayo splashed on instead of butter. Had the beef, not great. Gave the rest of my sandwich away. Way overpriced for the product. First and last visit, sooner have a meal instead!

Sorry you didn't like your sandwich! I've never had a beef sandwich with butter and no mayo - but you can easily order butter and no mayo on the order sheet. If the staff got your order wrong, let me know and I'll make sure it's set right.

I'm surprised you feel that $3 for a roast beef sandwich with all the fixin's is too much. I just spent a month in the US, and it was rare to find a good RB sandwich for less than $7 or $8.

We came here with a craving for a sandwich and were delighted with what we found. A foolproof ordering system, super clean environment, and gourmet ingredients made Woody's a diamond in the rough.

I had a footlong tuna and bacon sandwich and it was phenomenal. The bacon was super thick and perfectly crispy.

The WiFi was fast and they have two computers to use if you didn't bring your own. We sat on plush comfy leather couches and sipped on fresh squeezed lemonade. PERFECTION!

We LOVE Woody's!
