We arrived without a booking on a very busy Friday night during the peak period. Staff were extremely helpful and seated us inside while we waited for a table outside to become available. As having experienced Northern Thailand hospitality and food before I was looking forward to tasting an Aussie version of this food. We were told it was a... More

We haven't had Thai for awhile due to a string of poor quality restaurants in the past. We really enjoyed our meal here put our faith back into Thai restaurants and cooking in Australia. We had soft shell crab, a yellow chicken curry and prawn fried rice very tasty great service and a reasonable price.

I was having drinks with a friend in Portside when I started craving for some tom yum soup. My friend Google Maps-ed and found this place to be the closest so we went. We both ordered a tom yum each. I got a prawn tom yum while my friend got the chicken tom yum. We were the only customers there... More

Friends invited my partner and myself to have dinner at their favourite local Thai restaurant. Although it was quite small and the furnishings a little basic the services was very welcoming, the choice of dishes vast and the food very good. The dishes we had good flavours and the Panang Duck was excellent. The price was very reasonable as well.... More

Last Thursday night we went to this restaurant for the first time. My sister and her husband had been many times before, and had always said it was the best. There were six of us in the group Thursday night and we ordered our meals, so we could all share, and get a taste of a lot of different dishes,... More

Had had take aways from here here before so stopped with the family for a quick pick up. Unfortunately they were "busy" although the amount of food coming out of the kitchen was not much, I waited 40 minutes before getting our take away meal. Brought a chef special which was meant to be 1/2 a duck - all I... More

We found this by mistake..and how happy we were. The lovely server impressed us with her soft manner and her helpfulness. The food was delicious and on our return from up north it was our first stop before continuing our journey. It is just off Racecourse Road and worthwhile trying this Thai.

Ended up here on Monday night, because nothing much else was open. Stayed away from the 'usual' and ordered Northern Thai seafood, which was very tasty and not too hot. Price the same as everywhere else. Very good, friendly and quick service.

Been going fairly regularly for over a year and the standard is consistently good. The chef also has a keen sense of flavour balance, which is so important to Thai cooking. After living in Thailand for 10 years it's quite difficult to find Thai restaurants that haven't seriously adjusted their dishes to what the average Aussie thinks Thai food is.... More

Whenever I visit Brisbane it is always a treat to have dinner here. The setting is calm and quiet and being able to sit outside on a warm night is great. The food and service is consistently well above other Thai restaurants and servings are generous. We love any of the stir fries, and the northern curries. It is not... More
