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.

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

OMG... Could the staff (I think it was the owner) be any ruder.. And while the food is ok, the decor and service to not worth the costs... During a reasonably quiet night, during last week , I think there was only about 3other tables or two or three, we waited more than 45mins for entrees, and when asked about... More

Looking for somewhere to have dinner we came across this thai restaurant by accident but it was a truly memorable experience. The meal was delicious and the staff were so friendly we would certainly return next time we are in Brisbane. After dinner there is the best icecream restaurant around the corner where we bought dessert but unfortunately I don't... More

We love this place......authentic Thai with great service and helpful and efficient staff. It doesn't look much from the outside, but it's one of those "hidden gems".
