Not good ... Definitely NOT authentic

We weren't expecting too much as the decor is fairly simple but we did want authentic Thai food. Our 16 year old ordered Lemon Chicken. What came out was a cheap, thin, supermarket chicken schnitzel with lemon butter drizzled across it. For $24 that was disgraceful. My Thai beef stir fry was... read more

Visited this restaurant on the weekend with a family member. Had the Thai Beef salad & Thai Green chicken curry with steamed rice. Portion sizes & presentation were good. Happy with that. Would be fair to say it's not the best Thai Salad I've ever had. Beef was not rare in the middle & dressing not as 'zingy' as I... More

This place was OK, just. We were there on a Sunday night, the curry we ordered was unavailable, we chose another. We shared 2 meals, one was hot, the other was not. We thought both lacked in flavour compared to other experiences with the same food. Both were small on size, we were given one glass of water, we would... More

We visited on quiet night. Should have known. Ordered lemon chicken with rice which arrived more like a schnitzel. The chicken was about 4mm thick battered with an unaspiring dressing and what passed for a side salad. My other guests had thai green curry and chicken pad thai. The chicken was rubbery which my wife left. The whole bill came... More

Was The Hom Cafe but has new owners and a new name... Food was good - service not in your face but attentive. Would go again for a quick bite to eat.

Nice place for lunch or dinner on a weekday. Weekends can be a little hectic, but the food is worth it

This restaurant has little street appeal and is really amongst much more appealing spots to eat. It could do with a freshen up. The staff were lovely, friendly and helpful whilst obviously not classed as really professional. The menu was what I would class as eclectic, not really a huge selection of the usual Thai dishes with plenty of 'pub'... More

We ate here a couple of times when in Darwin, breakfasts are tasty, filling and very well priced. Dinner was a great Thai dish, can't remember exact name, but was very hot and spicy, so if you prefer not so spicy let the friendly staff know. Will definitely eat here again when in town. BTW - the sign out front... More

This hidden gem in the CBD has Great air conditioning, the best French toast, and does an awesome iced coffee! Lots of food on the plate - enough to satisfy the biggest eater
