Good Food and Service

Good restaurant considering the hotel wasn't good. Good for kids and adults. Not ridiculously expensive.

We had been driving past all week and the out side looks so great with the carved wooden elephants and wagons we had to try it... The service was prompt and friendly very quick to bring drinks and menus, we ordered satay chicken and spring rolls... More

We arrived fairly late to the Gold Coast and as this restaurant was in the hotel decided to have dinner there. Friday night it was very busy, and as it was pooring rain, hald the tables were not in use as they were outdoors. They took us in without a reservation, and provided a very good Thai meal, at a...

We went to the restaurant with great expectations as it supposedly won many awards. Unfortunately the food wasn't great at all. Meat was rubbery and flavours not great. We love our Thai food but felt that this was the most unappealing Thai meals we have ever had. The smell coming from the kitchen also took us back to the outdoor... More

This has always been a fantastic restaurant and service and atmosphere still great. The prices have gone up and the food just slipping in quality I felt the last time I was here. Still worth a visit for first timers but don't expect a cheap meal anymore. The wines are just also so if you are looking for a nice... More

Chiang Mai is a beautiful restaurant & the food is always fantastic. I took my wife to Chiang Mai Thai for dinner on our first date & we just went back again on Valentines day to re-live old memories. Its definitely expensive, <$21 for a chicken cashew nut>... but if you're looking to impress, or celebrate a special occasion it's... More
