Consistent tastiness

The restaurant is comfortable and there is a friendly atmosphere. The staff is attentive and sophisticated. The food is of a consistently high standard. It is a good idea to go with a group so that various dishes can be tasted. A great place for an intimate dinner or a group occasion.

I like this restaurant. I like it's simplicity and a bit of the ridiculous decoration attempt to be Thai (a lot of gold and statues!). But most of all, I like the food. It's basically very tasty and well presented. I've been here twice and both times the food has been exceptionally good. Not ambitious or surprising, just what food... More

For a Thai restaurant of this size the food and service is good. You get the feeling that it is a little rushed though - they run the place like a machine, I suppose they have to with so many tables. Would go back again but not that intimate, a bit too commercial. Would recommend for a large party -... More

As a frequent comer to Newtown, EVERY time I walked past Thai Pothong it was ALWAYS full. I decided to celebrate my birthday here with family, not expecting too much. We made a booking for 6pm and were seated immediately, mind you, the restaurant was already buzzing with people. Without fail, every waiter/waitress that walked by our table asked whether... More

Last night was my first of many visits to come, this restaurant is simply spectacular. The prices are fair for the amazing quality of their dishes and the service is outstanding. Staff are onto every detail and they make you feel at home. We ordered the Pad Thai and the lamb Massaman and they were to die for. We saw... More

From the moment you step into the restaurant you are greeted warmly by the staff. Our table of six consisted 5 adults and a 5 year old cheeky girl. She was given crayons and colouring paper to keep her happy and amused. Good was sensational. We went for the $31pp banquet. It was more than enough. Desert was lovely too.... More

We eat in this restaurant regularly as well as get take always and it never fails to impress! The curries we usually get are yellow and Panang and both are just so tasty with really generous size portions(usually enough that we get to bring him out leftovers for lunch) The chicken spring rolls with plum sauce are also delicious as...
