Consistently Great

I have dined here several times with my partner and with friends. The food is great. Staff are friendly and atmosphere pleasant. It is a typical takeaway/dine in restaurant. You can bring your own wine.

The owners come from Surin in Thailand if that's any indication of food style... Authentic Thai with generous servings... If you are a first time Thai foodie, then you may struggle with the lack of complete explanation in the food and understanding of what is spicy hot and what is not. BBQ pork and basil was a highlight. SomTum (Green... More

I love thai food and look around for authenticity! I chose to try here but was dissapointed, the porpia (spring rolls) were so pastry thick and floury due to thickness of the pastry. chicken and cashews: please dont put decorated carrot, brocolli and snow peas in it, that is not authentic, and please attempt to fry the cashews: not just...

It's that good that before other friends and family will put in orders for me to bring to them if they know I'm coming to visit. Friendly staff, great with kids and will do awesome vego options. If you want it Thai... More

A very tasty hidden gem! Spence Street (past Bunnings) wouldn't be the first place I'd look for an outstanding Thai but I am extremely glad I found it! The Thai Cafe is a basic but cozy 'restaurant eatery' with extremely friendly staff, a great casual atmosphere and some of the best Thai/Lao meals in Cairns. It's a dine in or... More

Came here for dinner with a good Laos friend who thought the food was just like back at Laos. The food was great , servings large and great friendly service. Definitely worth the trip out of town.

Good as you can expect from traditional thai restaurants. Expensive in my opinion though. It can also be the region, but in the big cities I pay about 2/3 the price
