One of my faves

Have been visiting Doytao for many years, and they have provided some of the best Thai meals I've ever had in Australia.

Fabulous food, very fast service, excellent prices and wonderful Thai food, a large restaurant which is great as you do not feel like you are sitting on top of other people. I would highly recommend doytao thai in Newtown.

Having lived in Thailand and visited many times I am always sus about Thai in Australia being too sweet and not replicating the flavours they produce but Doytao does a good job. I especially liked the authentic fish cakes and the curry puffs were great. All mains yummy too from duck salads to pad krapow and generous so kind makes... More

We've been coming to Doytao since the Newtown restaurant was the only Doytao in existence and considerably smaller than it is now, and have worked our way through various dishes on offer. The quality is always good; the service has varied over the years (which is expected I guess), and price has definitely increased - again to be expected, and... More

For many months I walked past Doytao and wondered why it was also so busy, especially because it was more expensive than some of the other local thai restaurants. But after trying it out it has now become our go-to thai takeaway place. They are fast and the quality is always great. I especially like the fish cakes.

The restaurant is unpretentious and simple. Bring your own atmosphere. Food is prepared quickly. We get take away from this restaurant once or twice a week. Love it. We prefer the stir fries, eg Plik King, which has lots of fresh veggies. Also Basil Fish Fillets, curries and noodles are good. We have never come across better Curry Puffs.

Had heard all the great reviews-yer food is okay-Expensive for a "Australian tasting" Thai. But the service is completely unacceptable. It was Lunch time Wednesday-the restaurant had about 4 people when we arrived and that blew out to about 10 by the time we left. They got the order of th meals wrong they completely forgot my wives meal. So... More

My friends raved about this place the first time I visited them back in February 2014 but sadly, they didn't have time to take me there. However, on this trip we made it a point to have dinner at Doytao. It felt like I was having a feast. We had 3 different entrees (moneybags!) and 3 main meals plus the... More

This is an unpretetnious and good value restaurant. The food is plentiful and tasty. The spice level seems to be a bit detuned. It's a cheerful spot to drop in for a meal and the staff are helpful. It is what it is.
