A family trip with friends

If our friends had not taken us here, we would not have found it. Eating in our own little booths, the food was excellent, though it did help having someone who understood the cuisine. A bit too hot for my pallet, but the rest of our table had no complaints.

Interesting night out with friends, with amount of positive reviews and recommendations from people, I was expecting friendly wait staff, great service and amazing food. None of the wait staff looked happy to be there and our waitress had no knowledge of the food and was no help with the stupidly massive wine list!! I have never seen a wine... More

Great food! Very different from your usual Asian Restaurant. Our waitress was lovely, recommending food, as we were eating with our 3 children, one of whom is not very a adventurous eater.

From the street you wouldn't think anything of the bar, its well worth seeking out. The staff were all super friendly and knowledgeable on every aspect of the bar. The cocktail list was enourmous - something like 10 pages long along with a huge range of tap beers and ciders by the bottle. We picked a few items from the... More

Ambience - Not much to say really. It's just your standard restaurant setting. If you do get a chance, try to grab a seat outdoors. They serve cutleries Drinks - Mammoth selection of beers. Have not tried the cocktails, but they definitely looked tasty. Food - Quite surprised that they serve Thai food as the design of the restaurant clearly... More

We saw on [TripAdvisor] that a restaurant called Cookies served Thai Food and had a great selection of beers. We live near Asheville, NC, several times voted Beer City USA and enjoy craft beers, especially pale ales and IPAs. The selection looked interesting and we ordered a couple to try. We were not disappointed. Both were from nearby, Victoria breweries... More

This restaurant has a very strange layout. It does however have a great variety of different seating and allows you to hide away in various areas of the restaurant on a seating format that you like. It was quite fascinating just looking around the restaurant at the various types of seating. There were even balcony seats outside, where you could... More

4pm booking on a Saturday. Up the dodgy looking stairs and a very underwhelming 'welcome' from a grumpy front of house girl. Two of our party were already seated so we seated ourselves. It got better from here thankfully. Great service awesome food. We ordered the sticky pork belly, green chicken curry, red curry with pork and potato and a... More
