I've never been so offended by a dining experience in my life. We found glass is our food, we had a huge delay in receiving our dishes and drinks that were ordered were incorrect. Disgusting service, no regard for the safety of guests even after the glass issue was reported to staff (we were laughed at?) and no manager apparently...... More

I don't often write a bad review but this place was just shocking. The food came out cold after we waited over an hour after we placed our orders. The waitstaff took back the food, gave it a zap in the microwave and returned it to our tables. Terrible.

We came here at just after 5 in the afternoon, and it was obviously just after opening, tables were still being set up. The service was a little bit slow to get started (10-15 minutes before we were asked what we wanted), but once we had ordered we were served within about 20 minutes - bearing in mind that there...

Was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. Pricing was good, $88 for 2 with 6 drinks. The food was very good but the staff were so friendly & it made for a great experience. I will definitely be back.

Recommend for a good Thai meal in brisbane-- Prawns were great, pad Thai was better. Service could do with a bit better customer attention but overall a good experience. Worth the long wait

Arguably this is the worst restaurant in Brisbane, it is difficult to describe how somebody can server such an awful food and call themselves "Fine Thai" cuisine. How can establishment like this still be operating? We arrived Saturday night and the place was very packed but being in Bulimba this is not out of ordinary. We placed order for 24.... More

Thai Pochana is not only our local Thai restaurant, but also our family favourite. Have just booked for New Years Eve - taking kids and grandparents to an early sitting. All of the food is great, but the Yellow Curry (with chicken) is not to be missed. Other favourites include Spicy Beef Salad,Pad Thai, fish cakes and satay skewers. Inexpensive,... More

We dined here for the first time last night. We chose the restaurant based on the great reviews but were sadly disappointed. The restaurant was almost empty, which should have rung some bells, but it was a Monday night so we forged ahead. The service was fine, staff very friendly, but the food was some of the worst thai food... More

Have often dined here on a Friday lunch time with a number of friends. Food is always good and the service is excellent.

We have been dining at the Thai Pochana in Bulimba since it opened - about 20 years! The family running it are authentic and are customer orientated. The food is always the same standard. Service is the best you can expect. We still dine there after all this time, so it must be good! it's located in Bulimba, which is... More
