Why do Darwin's Thai restaurants feel it necessary to include on their menus hamburgers, pizzas, fish n' chips and who knows what else? It's not as though they have mastered the Thai repertoire and now seek new and greater challenges, not here at least. Anyway, I've cooked Thai food for years and Mellow's version of it is a dumbed-down, inauthentic... More

I have been to Hom/Mellow for lunch with friends a few times in recent months, most recently this week. I have so far been reluctant to comment based on only one or two fleeting visits but now the trends are emerging. Another reviewer used the word eclectic to describe the menu. Good word. Hard otherwise to see how Atlantic salmon... More

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 totally rubbery and clearly had not been freshly... 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
