There have been mixed reviews of Don’s Café over the years, but one thing is for certain: the guy makes a killer steak sauce. Don has built up a solid reputation for his Rawai restaurant, making it one of the more popular restaurants in Phuket among expats.
Most expats, after moving to Phuket, end up at Don’s Café within a few days to sample his spare ribs and famous barbecue. Don, a former NASA engineer, is usually milling about taking care of guests at his restaurant.
Don’s is perhaps one of the most famous expat restaurant in Phuket, certainly in Rawai. Don’s features a good range of Western dishes, Mexican food, pizzas, steaks and Swedish food.
It’s all about the smoked barbecue ribs, however, marinated in Don’s famous sauce, the recipe of which is a well-kept secret that very few people know.
On Sunday Don serves up a traditional English roast dinner.
