Had a lovely first experience at this amazing traditional Thai restaurant surrounded by beautiful decorations, you feel like you've stepped into THAILAND! The staff are very attentive and hospitable and the meals were extremely generous and DELICOUS. Fresh is definately best! After lunch, we ventured over to the in house gift shop to buy some memorabilia. Thank for a great... More

Visited here last night on a company outing going with a custom banquet (a few variations from the $48 Samui). The whole thing from beginning to end was great. The standout dish was the red duck curry, the best I've had yet in Sydney. Mild, creamy, with a generous amount of pineapples, lychee and lean duck slices! Value-wise I think... More

Great Thai food which is VERY hard to find in sydney. Yes it can be quite noisy because it seats about 300 people and there are some interesting decor fixtures. However the food is fresh and full of flavour, ( I'm partial to the duck curry) and the service is very efficient and attentive. I just love this place and... More

the thai restaurant is the best thai dish that i ever had, not one of. just the best. in Chinese it sounds like 太普通,which means so common. But no kidding, it it so not 太普通。 you should try. the crispy pork and Chinese Broccoli is tasty. and scallop is one of my favourite.

Can not fault the service one bit. 15 people for a b'day party. Our server was around all the time whenever we wanted anything. They under charged for the corkage for our group, we got two extra dishes for free, they didn't add on a service charge for our big group and they didn't charge extra for the large birthday... More

The food here is great, and if you want somewhere to go that is full of sound and movement, then this is the place. The food was the best part about it - including the very good range of tasty vegetarian dishes, and the ability of the staff to adapt dishes for people who are vegan. The service was great,... More

Best Thai I've had, even as far as to say, better than what we had in Thailand. Great location in Newtown, and couldn't recommend enough.

Thought this place has a lot of glittery merchandise to sell and display, the food is quite nice and the service good. We don't eat Thai out much as it is often sloppy and soupy rather than carefully done. Pothong has a comprehensive menu and caters for coeliacs as well. A reliable place to enjoy

We came here on recommendation of our daughter - it did not disappoint. Although the restaurant is a no frills interior it just added to its charm - the food was second to none. We had yellow curry, pad thai, and chilli prawns and would throughly recommend all three. The service was polite, quick and efficient. A return visit is... More
