We enjoyed a walk along King Street, which offers unique shopping, vintage stores, pubs and restaurants, then enjoyed a lovely dinner at Thai Pothong. Everything we had was excellent! Panang curry and fried rice with crab meat were our family favorites. High quality food, great service. Crowded even at the start of dinner (6 pm), so be sure to make... More

We last visited this restaurant several years ago, and was very impressed by the food, but this return visit was quite a disappointment. Certainly the bright, renovated interior and expansion gave the restaurant an atmosphere of vibrancy and grandness of scale. The service was prompt and impeccable, with the waiter/waitress paying close attention to our every perceived need and showered... More

OMG! I can not rave about this place enough. My family and I always go here for birthdays and celebrations. It isn't for people who want to go on a nice quiet romantic date. The restaurant is huge and loud but the food is incredible, best in Sydney by far. Vast amounts of vegetarian selections and whoa it is delicious!

The duck curry was delicious, the wine was magnificent. Good service, we were looked after very well, although it was VERY busy. Great location.

They do have great food but if compare to say Thai-nesia, they are not as great in terms of atmosphere, and food quality... somehow, we feel like eating in a canteen rather than a restaurant... (a bit harsh I know)... maybe just our preference... However, the services were superb on the night we were there, very attentive and service with... More

Our meals were dedlicious. Samosa, Prawn Tom Yum, Roast duck salad and a Chicken green curry and perfectly cooked rice. Food and pricing were very good but... More

We stumbled on this place and were drawn to it by huge number of people eating there. It was a Saturday night and we hadn't booked and we managed to get a table nonetheless. The food was excellent - my meal was veggie was totally delicious. The price was good and I would definatley recommend.

Probably the best restaurant in Australia. Great food, best staff and amazing experience above all most experienced staff. not the menu but the staff makes the difference that make customers come again and again. My 6 year old son was treated like a hero and several birthday parties at the same time. Will come again soon.

It was my privilege to dine at this institution in Sydney. The food, service and ambience were first class. Our order was delivered quickly and the service was attentive and friendly. I particularly recommend the Betel leaf entrees.
