Came highly recommended and decided to order take away. When we got home and started eating we were very disappointed. Spring rolls were ok, red curry chicken very bland and creamy and the tamarind stir fry was tasteless. Free prawn crackers though.

Looking forward to thai on out road trip from Airlie Beach to Cairns. Went out of our way to look for the place at 3 pm and found it closed. Only open 5-9pm. Waste of time and hugely disappointing.

We are huge fans of Thai food and have been to Thailand multiple times and I can honestly say this is the worst Thai food I've ever had. We got takeaway and the pad thai was terrible. Tasted like bicarb. The curry had a nice flavour but it was mostly sauce (no content). The crispy money bag entree, which we... More

This is our local Thai and it's outstanding! We get it weekly and have never been disappointed. Great curries and stirfries, plus their pad thai is to die for!

They no longer have dine-in and last time we tried the take-out they messed up the order. i used to like the ambience of the restaurant but the food has always been pretty average.

A little out of town but ideal location for where we were staying. Excellent menu and willing to create a dish to suit your taste, and will add vegetable to meat/ chicken dishes if requested. Good range of beers and wines but do allow you to BYO
