Enjoyable Thai food in a suburban Brisbane restaurant with attractive modern decor, attentive service and indoor and outdoor dining spaces.

First impressions, ambience great, beautiful well cared for fish tank. We were seated right next to it & it is certainly a lovely feature. On arrival greeted well & seated. Drinks offered promptly. Didn't mind that we ordered entree's whilst deciding on mains. Did offer a couple of suggestions, so that was good. There were 6 of us & we... More

We love this place and have been going there many times over the years and it is always excellent . The food and service is brilliant and to a very high standard . I wanted to order some curry puffs for my relatives funeral as this was her signature dish . When I went into Modern Thai the owner immediately... More

Living up to its name this is a team of Thai chefs who like to experiment with their food, give their diners quality, colour and flavour. Ordering the Banquet B for our family of indecision makes the task easy and a surprise element of adding naans to enjoy with the curry was well, not expected in a Thai menu. Good... More

Great ambience with dimly lit interior and an aquarium full of corals and fishes. Really scrumptious curry and can't go wrong with the red curry with lychee. A tad bit expensive for Thai and I thought other dishes apart from the signature dishes were average.

Wherever the staff at this restaurant were trained, every other restauranteur in Brisbane should send their employees there. When the only pinot grigio listed as "sold by the glass" on the wine list wasn't available, they apologised profusely, opened a bottle of another that was on the menu as "sold by the bottle only" and poured two glasses. When one... More

We received great service from the get-go, especially the girl who can speak Vietnamese who was very helpful and friendly. There were only 2 waitresses on duty on the night and they managed quite well without leaving us feeling being left out. Food was a bit of hit and miss and a bit on the salty side. Nevertheless, we did... More

We had a group dinner at Modern Thai mid-week for a group of 10. The food was lovely and the service great too. We were the last in the restaurant at the end of the evening yet the staff remained polite and service was great. Several members of our group come here regularly and say the food is excellent and...

This suburban Thai restaurant was a very pleasant find. A very nicely appointed restaurant with good staff, good service and excellent food. We shared a variety of dishes and enjoyed them all. We went mid-week and it wasn't overly busy but with this standard of food I imagine it is very busy at weekends. We left our booking recorded on... More
