The bar is set pretty high with Thai Nesia - consistently very good

Although we haven't visited here often, when we do, the standard is always the same - very high. If there's a bar set high, this restaurant's food, whilst the menu is small, the flavours and presentation and taste were excellent. We chose a Saturday evening after the movies.

Menu hasn't changed since it was opened in the 80s. The duck curry, massaman curry are always the best dishes on the menu. You haven't been to Oxford St until you have been to Thai Nesia. While Oxford St looks dead on weekdays, Thai Nesia is always busy. Rice is free flow and it's always good to go in a... More

Started with chicken wings stuffed with mince meat. Scrumptious. Went on to green curry and fried rice, absolutely delish! Staff was very friendly and always attentive. Best thai food experience I've had in Australia. Highly recommended. Best to book a table beforehand as the place is not big and it fills up quite quick.

Amazing dinner at Thai Nesia. Came here on tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed. The starters were great and the main course of Chicken Green Curry and Prawn Fried Rice were the best Ive had. Service wasn't to be faulted and the dessert of Brown Sticky Rice and Coconut Ice Cream topped it off Very Impressive

There is no doubt that the food and service at this restaurant is absolutely fabulous. We enjoyed it so much so that we returned twice in one week! But a huge WARNING to all. Make sue you check your bill if you are paying via Visa / Eftpos. Before you click 'ok' check that you are paying the correct amount... More

Thai food being ubiquitous in Sydney, it is a pleasure to find a restaurant that serves more than the usual suspects without charging a fortune for it. More interesting dishes such as pork and betel leaf and seared spicy scallops liven the menu up. My friend and I both ordered our food spicy and were relieved to find this was... More

Wow! Thai Nesia knows all about style, service and absolutely fantastic Thai food, sometimes with an Indonesian touch. Bring your own wine (corckage only $3 pp) and you will have a wonderful dinner with fresh, exotic, delicious food in a wonderful ambience.

Hidden away, not far from Taylor Square, sit this fabulous Thai, on the outside, nothing special, on the inside great and attentive staff. The food is fist class, the Thai Green curry was amazing, although the source was a little runny, also had prawns, steaming hot rice, a really good all around experience, it is a byo, and there is...
