Do yourself a flavour

We wanted to enjoy lunch before heading off to a show and found House. This unassuming restaurant, just around the corner from the Capitol Theatre, away from the hustle and bustle of George street packs a punch of flavour. Issan Thai food, wonderfully exotic, really cheap - prices range from... read more

Had dinner here after walking y and looking for something for dinner. We remembered having dinner here a few years back and enjoyed the night. Walking in we were disappointed with the tired run down look. There was a car park parked in the middle of the outdoor courtyard out door eating area. So disappointing. Such huge potential outside.

Loved this place so much - it was near our hostel so we ate here one night - cute little place and we sat outside with heat lamps. The Mussaman curry is divine and the lemon (lime) iced tea was beautiful too.

I'm not quite sure who eats here. The food is so insanely spicy it almost blew my head off. The decor is pretty uninspiring. I just don't get this place? Their sister restaurant Spice I Am up the road is much better.

If you like your Thai on the spicy side then House is just wonderful. All the food was very fresh and well prepared. The services was terrific and the beer nice and cold. Loved the grilled pork skewers and the Massamam curry was a highlight!

Would definitely recommend the beef strips (Nua Daed Deaw) to start, the sauce (Jim-Jaew) is the perfect accompaniment. Soups are well presented and although the serving size doesn't look too generous the chicken curry (Aorm Gai) was very substantial/thick - and satisfying - good flavours, perfect (chilli) heat The crispy cat fish salad (Yum Pla Duk Fu) was probably our...

I had lunch with friends at "House" after reviews on TA and we were delighted. Comfy seats and prompt professional service. Thai being my least favourite asian food I totally loved this. Give it a go.

We had fond memories from a couple of previous (over two years ago) visits. A big disappointment this time of this unusual brand of Thai food that the House has on offer. The lovely flavours experienced on previous visits were gone and the service was a bit lackadaisical too.

Sit on a stool on the street and the bar is right there. Craft beers and entrees were great. Service won A1!
