Thai Pothong proudly displays its Tripadvisor 4.5 star rating at its door, 4.5 stars well deserved. We were a group of seven who arrived for Sunday lunch without a booking and though we'd normally book, this presented no problems. Later, while we were dining, some guests had to wait for a table. This is a large restaurant with a decent... More

This is the cruise ship of the Newtown Thai places. It's consistently good, consistently popular, and deservedly high ranked on Trip Advisor. It's not you tiny local 'find' of a this hole in the wall place, but it's good, well priced, reliable, and worth a visit.

Been to Thai Pothong a few times with my wife over the past year, each time we visit Sydney. Our only wish is that we'd discovered it earlier! The food is excellent, great flavours and good serving sizes. The wait staff are attentive enough and come if you need them but don't loiter which suits us. Personal favourites are Penang... More

I have had the pleasure of dining here several times, and each time has been a delight. Not only are the meals so yummy, but the service is excellent. It is a little on the "pricey" side, but well worth it. The fish cakes are an absolute must!

FIrst time back here for about 15 years. The space has expanded, the food and service remain as good as ever regardless, even if the extra numbers and the bare wood floors make for a very very noisy meal.

I had two meals at Thai Pothong last week and they were both sensational.The restaurant is large but spacious and the staff are very attentive so it feels quite intimate and you feel well looked after. However the food is the real star attraction as it should be. The Roast Duck Salad was the stand out dish for me but... More

I just love Thai food and this is a real little find in Newtown. Great service, fresh good food, Panang duck curry, yum, Pad Thai excellent, banana blossom salad, Devine, to top it all off mango coconut ice cream they made that day. What a wonderful experience enjoyed every mouthful and can't wait to go back!

I love this restaurant. The food is so fresh and comes out so quickly. I've often stopped here later at night (around 9pm) on my way home to catch up on dinner. As I never finish my meal, I take the leftovers home to have at work the next day. They always reheat just as well and all in my... More
