Great little place

During our week in Darwin we went here for dinner two or three times and had breakfast here a few times. As other reviewers have mentioned the menu includes all sorts of dishes not only Thai dishes. I think the owners are being smart catering to guests in the hotels just behind on the Esplanade who... read more

We came here with a large group of people (8). We waited to be seated and then ordered. It took a good hour for the food to finally come to our table. The food itself was nice, but was ruined by the fact that on the television there were some horrific images that were not appropriate for a family restaurant.... More

The food was fantastic, all dishes were authentic and very tasty! Service was very slow for a large group (8) also the content on television was totally inappropriate for a family restaurant. I would come back, but with a small group.

Breakfast at Mellow is very good with lots of choice. Eating in the warmth on the street is heaven. Dinner is also very good and the cakes for dessert which I was able to take away was to die for.

Friendly staff, and the place has a quieter but nice atmosphere where you can sit inside or outside. Quick service too. I had the honey chicken and I was quite disappointed, waaayyyy too crunchy so I think it was well over cooked. There didn't taste like there was much chicken either, but this could've been because any chicken was too... More

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

Visited here on a busy Saturday night. We were seated promptly and provided with comprehensive menus. There really is something for everyone here from the usual Asian dishes to pastas and traditional fare. Meals arrived quickly and were fresh and delicious. Great for a quick, fresh meal and good value.
