Gorgeous Thai food, reasonably priced. Always packed out. Run a ticket system for those waiting for a table. Definitely worth the wait.

We recently had dinner at the Red Onion and the food was definitely worth the wait. Service was a bit lacking in personality but I understand that considering how busy they always seem to be. Food came out quick, hot and delicious - what more can you want!

This small restaurant in Karon is always busy and generally one have to wait for a table, but the wait is well worth it. The food is spectacular and the prices low enough to be described as budget. The service can at times be frantic but the size and quality surpass all expectations. Cheap beer and cocktails. I have never... More
