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

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!

We decided to go to this restaurant as it was close to our hotel and it had good reviews. When we entered we thought it looked very pleasant and modern. Things quickly derailed once we were seated. Being a group of five people we were looking to order a fairly decent meal. The first issue was that the server does... More

Great Thai food from House. We just chose a few random dishes for our takeaway and loved them all. Delicious!
