Once upon a time you ordered fried rice and that's what you got. Now you order it, pay $17 and get a half fried rice with a salad garnish. The duck with bone is average , bland and overcooked. The tom yum prawn is still to die for. It's now just hit and miss and appears to be living off... More

This is the best thai food on the Gold Coast. I have been here several times and the food is always amazing. The staff are friendly and everything looks very traditional. The outside seating is lit by both torches and lights. Very nice... Avoid sitting outside by the sidewalk as we seen a few Australians that were drunk makeing rude... More

Very authentic experience, decor, staff uniforms and naturally the food. It is totally Thai all the way. Located on the Gold Coast Highway with numerous other Thai restaurants dotted along the way, this is by far the pic of them all. Good value, super banquet. Parking at the side

We were staying nearby and used Trip Advisor to select the "best" Thai takeaway close to our hotel. What a disappointment! We ordered satay sticks for entree, the chicken was not moist nor succulent and the amount of sauce we were given was tasty but insufficient for four sticks. Duck red curry was delicious, duck was cooked to perfection. Mixed... More
