We are regular diners at this thai restaurant with freshly made food and sauces. Always great service - we have taken all our interstate and overseas visitors there for a meal and they come away raving about the great food. Highly recommended. Also BYO and no corkage. You can also buy drinks there too

We had had lots of good recommendations for this Thai restaurant but were sadly disappointed. The money bags were tasty, the coconut rice was fluffy and in plentiful supply but the red curry duck could have done with a bit more 'zing' and The papaya salad was very ordinary. The service was excellent - up until they whisked the plates... More

Thank god the Fat Man has gone, he scared a lot of customers away, and was quite embarrassing for the poor owner/chef, Charntra, who still hand makes all her entrees, curries and sauces. The Red Curry Duck is to die for, the Duck Spring Rolls are outstanding, and the Pad See Ew or Spicy Noodles with Duck are recommended (yes,... More

Have been here several times over the last few years for dinner with my family. Most recent visit was on a Friday night and fortunately we had booked as the restaurant was busy. Service was friendly and efficient. The menu and food are the highlight and we enjoyed all the dishes we ordered. Prices seem to have increased recently but... More

Returned to this restaurant after a couple months to find that the inimitable "host" is no longer there. BUT ... not to worry: not only is there no change in the kitchen, but the impossible has been achieved - the flavours seem even better!! It is no exaggeration to say that EVERY dish is SENSATIONAL. If there is a better... More

We try lots of different restaurants in the greater Melbourne area and this was a great find. It is ironic that we had owned a property about 300 meters from here yet had never visited before. We joined a group of friends recently for the special muscle night which is held every Tuesday night. At first I was a little... More

Finally got a booking to this popular local. It was worth the wait as the food is very good and the flexibility of the kitchen to be commended. Prices are fair and the menu is full of yummy dishes. My only negative is that the time between starters and mains was far too long, they need to think about this... More

I had passed this restaurant each day whilst travelling in the tram along Riversdale Road and decided to give it a go with my husband and we were not disappointed. We booked and glad we did as walk ins don't get the "welcoming" treatment on arrival. Clean, crisp decor, the proprietor is at the bar and welcoming the guests while... More

Have visited Charntra several times, right from when they just opened a few years ago to the present time. Food quality is consistently very good, but I sense the prices have increased quite a bit from the early days. I wonder if the good reviews they have received in The Age foodies reviews has encouraged the increases?
