Thaila Thai, has a wonderful buzzing atmosphere especially in summer when this part of Lygon street is alive. The place is rundown, and could really do with a makeover. But the Food is fresh, and always tastes great. You walk past the kitchen when you walk in, the chef's great you with a smile, and you can see all the... More

Visited on a Friday afternoon after office. Seated outside, the environment was vibrant. The menu is quite simple. Ordered assorted starters, pad Thai, Tom yam. The taste was great, specially the chicken satay and Tom yam. It's not a fancy restaurant, but the quality of food is very good accompanied by great taste. They cook to order, so the food... More

We ate at TT again last night. It's been at least a year since we visited. I didn't bother with the menu, as we had already had our favourite dishes from many previous visits. We were not disappointed! The service was quick and friendly. The upstairs is more modern and comfortable. Go early if you can like us. It's no... More

A group of friends and I go to this place over and over despite it being nowhere near any of our houses. It may not be Melbourne's best Thai but it's pretty damn good and would have to be close to its cheapest, especially when you consider it's BYO and the corkage fee is only $2 pp. The service is...

My boyfriend and I went here on a Saturday night. It was super busy but we were lucky enough to get a table upstairs without waiting. It was busy. Like really busy. And noisy. The waitstaff are pretty short with you (which I attribute to how busy they were) and we were handed our plates/cutlery in a pile which was... More

The food quality, price and freshness at this Brunswick St Eatery is excellent. Service is friendly and ok. Parking anywhere in the Lygon St East Brunswick precinct is a NIGHTMARE and quite often leads to me eating elsewhere. Not the restaurants fault just the way it is.

Love the food! So full of flavour and so much to pick from its hard! It all looks amazing and so fresh... It's a small Restruant and always seems to be packed, great value for money. Highly recommend eating here!!! :)

This is by far the best Thai food I have had in Melbourne. While the restaurant is a little old-fashioned, don't let that put you off - the food is really good and reasonably priced. Serving sizes are huge so you'll end up with more food than you probably need! The staff are generally nice but a little disorganized. The... More

This small restaurant has good food, but I was disappointed when I went back as part of a large group... The place is much better suited to small groups of two or four.
