Very charming place, with perfect customer care. We were warmly greeted, got served in record pace, and our food was absolutely perfect! The prices are very reasonable, and you get big servings of really good food for a very nice price. Our favorite in Patong!

Good Thai food and service with a smile,waiter is married to a Brit so speaks good English. Very generous portions and lovely presented. The only shame was 2 older British men and two Thai girls playing pool whilst shouting loudly across the bar which ruined our meal. We have left as soon as we could after one of the blokes started to become quite physical with one of the girls as we didn't fancy watching it whilst eating. Also for some reason there were very worn boxers hanging on the wall adjacent to our table - quite off-putting. 3 starts go to lovely food and service though

Dear Veronika G

It's a shame you couldn't work out which of our 2 properties you were eating at before you posted your review to the WRONG LOCATION so I would like you to FOCUS as I have a few things I'd like to say in response.

1 You actually ate at our original Thai Cafe / Sports Bar in Soi Kepsap, listed as 'Halfway Inn (Sports Bar)' in the 'Things to do, Nightlife' category and NOT 'Halfway Inn (Restaurant)' which is our new bamboo themed 130 seat Thai Restaurant on the hill heading out of Patong as you drive towards Karon, which would probably be much more to your liking.

2 You were eating in a Thai Cafe / Sports Bar where people, mostly men, go to drink beer, play pool, watch live sport and interact with the locals. The reason they were being loud was probably because they were enjoying themselves! However, I will act on the fact that we lost marks in your review and will talk to all our staff and customers and ask them to tone it down when there are people eating during the day. But, after nightfall it's time to party!

3 If you had looked a bit closer at the 'worn boxers' you would have seen that the logo is 'Super Dad'. They were given to me by my daughter and have pride of place on the wall.

thanks for your comments about our food and I hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday.

from me (Dave), my lovely wife and Head Chef (Nan), 21 month old son (Dan), our ferocious (!) Shitzu guard dog (Freddie) and all our delightful Thai staff.

Nice little spot. The owners are really friendly and the food is great. Seems to be a local spot with the occasional tourist to go there for dinner etc. Would go again to get some drinks, have a chat and great food.

Dear Aequitas81

thanks for taking the time to give us a highly rated review, I do however need to clarify your comment 'seems to be a local spot with the occasional tourist to go there for dinner' as the implication is that only Expats hang out here which is definitely not the case. We get plenty of people coming here on TripAdvisor recommendations.

Safe travels and we hope to see you again in the near future.

The Halfway Inn is a great place to eat or to just have a drink. Dave, Nan and all the staff are so hospitable and make you feel so welcome.The food prepared by Nan is sensational and it was a pleasure to have a great meal and a few drinks on numerous occasions. Cant wait to see you all again in February.
