We came in after a long journey with big backpacks and we're automatically catered for. The food (a mix of Thai and American) was to die for. I recommend the burgers! The host was extremely hard working and spoke great English. Would come again in a heart beat 😊

Had lunch here and opted for Thai. The food and drinks were good and pricing was decent. The standout feature was the excellent service and gracious attitude.

Meals - burgers, sandwiches, pasta, thai - were OK, reasonable selection of basic drinks. Nothing wrong, but not a place we would come again.

We stopped there for coctails while staying in Phuket. The coctails were super delicious as well as their presentation. The prices are high, but you also get exclusive coctails! Highly recommended if you are looking for nice spot to chill, enjoy a drink or two.

We visited Rider Cafe in search of good burgers and ended up going back two more times. Not only were the burgers some of the best we've had in a long time, the service was phenomenal and the atmosphere pleasant. The staff worked tirelessly to make our dinners memorable and Rider became our "go to" stop for outstanding beef burgers... More

Wanted a burger for a change, so read the reviews and headed for the cafe. Upon entering, the interior didn't match the pats we had seen, nor did the menu we were expecting. The waitress/owner explained they had bought the place two days before, so the menu (and decor) were basic. So no burgers, only pizza and pasta. We stuck... More

Hi! Sorry you were disappointed. To be fair with the new owners, they are fixing the place up and at the point you were there, still not really ready to open. Give them a break and a bit of time. Many businesses in phuket are struggling during low season, and need every baht... they will be ready by early November... More
