My partner and I visited this very popular BYO restaurant in November. This location in Surry Hills does not accept reservations and we just dropped by. As far as I know, they have several other locations in Sydney now (including one in Darlinghurst and one in Balmain) and none of them accepts that you bring your own bottle. We were... More

I stopped by for a late lunch in Spice I Am on my way to Sydney Central from Travelodge. Only had a chance to dine in once over my 6 days stay in Sydney. It opens from 11am for lunch but will have a short afternoon break before start serving again for dinner. Most of the time it was full... More

Amazing food, better than Thailand. Packs a punch those chilli dishes. The standing room only only adds to the ambience.

My wife and I have been here countless times but we don't even live in Australia. Of the 4 times we've traveled to Sydney we've been here probably 10 times. We live in the US and this is hands down the best Thai food that we've ever had! It is our first restaurant to go to when we arrive in... More

The most authentic Thai dinning experience you'll find outside Thailand. Well cooked tasty food at reasonable prices (for Sydney!) with quick service. Not a fancy restaurant, in fact it looks like a café but you just can't beat the food.

We passed this restaurant the previous evening and the place was jumping with crowds on the streets waiting to be seated. When we returned the next evening, we only had to wait a few minutes before being seated for dinner. Their policy is no bookings and walk in only. This restaurant is small but the staff are efficient and turning... More

Recommended by the hotel we were staying at the Central Station Hotel opposite the restaurant. It is very popular. They turn tables very quickly. The food is very good and reasonably priced. Keep in mind the restaurant is BYO and does not take credit cards.

I have travelled to Thailand many times for work..(70 times?), This restaurent is sure the best in Austraia if not BKK. However, This place is best for couple to din in rather family or ground, you will be given the same small round table as the couple even you have 5 people. ( do not ask for bigger or two... More

This has great fresh, healthy thai food with more than just a bit of spice. I ordered mild but it was still had a lot of bite - I really needed the yoghurt side that complemented my larb beautifully. It is also open late and close to hotels on Wentworth Ave which was great when we arrived late at Central... More
