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.

Been here over several years. Still blows me away. Best betel leaves ever and delicious papaya salad. Worth the extra pennies. Gorgeous servers as well.

We were headed to another restaurant when our friend spotted this place. I'm always a little suspicious of large restaurants. Well this place was not one of those places. The staff were so very polite, courteous and helpful. We arrived when the place was about two thirds empty, but by the time we had mains, it was packed! The food... More

My number one recommendation here is to BOOK IN ADVANCE. This is a very popular restaurant and as such will require a booking if you wish to visit on a Friday or Saturday. I had dinner with my friends here last Saturday night. We were 3 couples in total and situated in the middle of the restaurant. I had booked... More

This was a favourite when we lived in the area, and we get back when we can. The food and service are fantastic, as is the atmosphere and decor. The place is huge, but doesn't feel like it, and you can enjoy an intimate dinner or a huge party. It was our birthday go to place for years, with our... More

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
