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

This little gem is about the food. The service is genuine and the flavours are amazing. Anyone who has travelled through Asia knows that food is presented differently and in different time frames. This cafe is well worth the visit.

Best thai place in Cairns, that we've come across. My husband lived in Thailand for over 2yrs, and he knows good/bad thai when we have it.

For that clean fresh authentic Thai/Lao flavour it is right up there. They also seem to have a busy take away business. The price is right and it's... More

Had lunch here yesterday with my daughter, and meals were very nice,Honey Curry Chicken & Beef Maasaman Curry. It's very authentic(not the best Thai in Cairns though) and enjoyable but Cha Ba Spicy is my favourite.
