Great value and service

We went here for dinner on a Tuesday night with another couple. The staff were fantastic - very helpful, patient and polite. They didn't hurry us out the door even though they were closing. The food was yummy, there was lots of variety and it was good value for money. The location is a short walk... read more

I eat hear regularly as I work nearby, never have I been disappointed. There is a large range of lunch specials for $9.90. My personal favourites are the Laksa and stir fry cashew nut. I am working my way through the menu and have enjoyed everything that I have ordered. Would highly recommend.

I've struggled to find a good Thai restaurant - well now I've found it! Lunch menu consists of 18 different dishes of which the 6 different meals either I or my friends have had have been sumptuously delightful. Full of flavour which upsets me when I eat it so fast that I have hardly any left. Equally the best Thai... More

My Wife and I and another couple who are great friends of ours enjoyed a lovely dinner at this restaurant during an overnight stopover in Brisbane. It was a reasonably busy Sunday night there and the service and food were excellent. We were all very impressed with the friendly staff and nothing was too much trouble for them and I... More

My friend and I had an early dinner here last night. The food was affordable and staff were very attentive—not sure if they would have been *as* attentive if the restaurant had been full, but I guess that is irrelevant in this situation. We shared curry puffs as an entree—I ordered a vegetarian stir fry and my friend ordered a... More

The food was great, we ordered pad thay and fried rice both with chicken and seafood. It was delicious. The price is reasonable and the service is good. We came two days in a row and no reservation needed since not many people come during dinner.

Good food, reasonably priced & friendly staff for 2 adults & 2 kids on a Monday night. After our meals were served, staff became very busy with takeaway orders. Our plates weren't cleared & we did not get a chance to order desert. So paid & left which was a little disappointing.

We went as a group to Tara Thai on the Friday of Chinese New Year. Everywhere near Chinatown was booked out, but we were happy when Tara Thai could squeeze us in. The atmosphere was lacking, the staffing was insufficient for such a busy time of year, and it took a long time to order and recieve our food. We... More
