Carabao Thai Restaurant is located in Johor Bahru’s CBD, next to the New York Hotel.
The restaurant has only outdoor seating. They spray mists of water and use shade and fans to help keep things relatively cool. I think the setting is the best reason to chose Carabao, as the food is only decent as is the service.
Even though it is downtown they do a nice job of situating the restaurant on the back of the lot with some shade trees so you do get a bit of a feel of escaping the city. They also have a large parking lot.
The food is decent, I prefer Tera Thai Restaurant but this is another good option for Thai food in the city. I would put Carabao on equal footing with Soul Thai in Jusco Mall @ Bukit Indah. And I prefer Carabao to the Thai restaurant in KSL (it is a chain and the food is, at best, mediocre – the service is good).
