Had lunch here yesterday, staff were great and food was fantastic, if you like authentic Thai, then this is the place to go...lots of pretenders (note the last fake review here) around but this is the real deal...

My first dining experience here with new Thai owners and staff. ESL is always an issue with multicultural Australia and poignant when ordering à la carte. Once past these communication challenges, the meals were really delicious, though service still has issues to resolve, hopefully with time and patience from customers. The enormous menu selection is perhaps overwhelming? Nice al fresco... More

The meal was very nice I ordered Thai beef salad and curry puffs and would recommend them. I didn't dine so cannot comment on the table service, my meal was ready when I called to collect and...

I ordered take out Yellow Curry Chicken made with potato and green beans. I have to say it was a very disappointing meal. There was very little chicken or beans, the potato was well undercooked and the sauce was way too sweet. In fact it resembled a soup more than a curry. I have eaten here in the past and... More

I live in Thailand and was transiting Brisbane so decided to try Northern Thai. I wanted to order authentic cuisine but was extremely disappointed. They do did not have basil which is an essential ingredient for several simple tasty dishes which I wanted to try. The tom yam khun had carrots in it, in fact everything I tried had carrots!!!...

Authentic, nice atmosphere restaurant in a nice neighborhood in Brisbane. If you are staying near the port, don't go to the overpriced riverside restaurants. Stroll over to Northern Thai and have some delicious, inexpensive choo chee curry or other dishes. The jungle curry was very bland, but the other dishes we tried were all very good. Service was excellent. They... More
