Great Value for Money

Thai Coins is our go-to restaurant for delicious Thai takeaway yet also an excellent option to eat-in with large groups. The curries are our favourite such as the Massaman and Panang however the noodle dishes are also very good. We always get the chicken satay with Thai Coins peanut sauce.

I can't emphasise enough how many restaurants in Cairns that serve 2nd degree cuisine and yet charge you 5 star prices. Thai Coin is certainly not one of those. I can't say it's the best Thai food I've had but certainly it's the one of the best restaurant in Carins that you can feel comfortably have a tummy full meal... More

We are locals and this is the restaurant that we always go to (and every other local who comes). You must book in advance as they are always full. The food is so fresh and we have had every meal on the menu and we haven't been let down once!! Joel is a great owner and he greets us (and... More

This was the very first restaurant I tried after moving to Cairns and we were very happy with our choice! We shared a Pad Thai, Massaman Curry and a Chicken Stir Fry (#33) which were all excellent! The Massaman especially was as good if not better than those we have had in Thailand! Staff were friendly and attentive, meal sizes... More

I was pleasantly surprised about the food at Thai Coins. We ordered a soup and salad for entree (had some soup left over) and two mains. I had the Pad Thai and usually I don't have anything left, this portion was substantial enough for me to fill a take away container after my meal. I will definitely eat here again... More

This place became popular about three years ago as the food was well priced and of reasonable quality. Recently we feel they have slipped, the price used to bring the crowds but now they are the same price as every other average Thai restaurant in town. I was disappointed to see the store bought curry pastes at the back of... More

the decor may not be 5 star but the food and the service certainly is. You walk into this restaurant and you immediately feel like a member of the family. You are greeted with smiles and the service is wonderful. the food is second to none. I would recommend this restuarant to anyone.

I am happy to report that I am a Thai Coins groupie. Good food at the right price and the owner is usually about to have a laugh with. My favourite dish is Crying Tiger which comes sizzling to the table with a wonderful flavoursome sauce.
