“Best burger in Phuket”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

Everything I have tasted in this cafe is great. I have eaten the Thai, the breakfast and of course the burgers..all amazing. I tried the Tom Yam soup and it is made fresh..each bowl. I'm just not sure which is better, the service or the food.
Bottom line it's not a cafe to miss.

Thank you to Sunisa for making us feel welcome. Best coffee we have had in Thailand. Loved the background music and bike memorabilia.

“Best Burgers this side of the Pacific!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2013

Food and service at this restaurant can't be beat. We ate at Rider Cafe more than once while we were in Phuket. Burgers were very good, freshly made meat patties (I had a double patty-one beef, one pork) toppings were generous, fries were crisp. We returned for a Thai style breakfast which was equally enjoyable and to top it off, we were remembered and greeted as friends. I have only good things to say about this restaurant, its staff and owners!

“What a treasure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

We had the pleasure of having the best burgers in Phuket last weekend at the Rider Cafe! The double burger (1 beef/1 pork patty) was amazing, the beer was cold, the atmosphere was perfect for casual conversation with friends and the owners are two of the greatest elements to this local eatery! Had the pleasure of eating there 3 different times over the weekend and each time it got better and better. Great prices, great food, and great people, how do you ask for more?

“Nice food, good prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2013

We have been living in Phuket now for a few months. I recently read about this place and wanted to have a look, last weekend went there with my family and we really liked it. I had the Vtwin or something like that burger and it was great and the price was very good too, beers are cheap, my wife had a salad very nice too.
Great little place, I want to go back to try the breakfasts that looked good on the menu.
Location is good too on Yawoarat road between Phang Nga and Thalang right at the centre of Phuket town.
