Looked good from the outside but the food let it down

We had spotted Som Thai and were looking forward to having dinner there. However the food was not great. I had jumbo, battered prawns as a starter and the sweet chilli sauce was out of the bottle and the prawn heads, which I usually eat, were black, never a good sign.

As Im a Asian food lover, nothing here to love about. Food quality compare to the price makes me feel a little expensive ( others may find it common in Broome) The only good thing to love about is outdoor set up. Nice breeze in the evening. Give it a go.

We try to get here for dinner every time we are in town - the food is amazing, second only to the real thing in Thailand! My husband had the chilli soft shell crab - always a great meal. I had the staple green chicken curry also very good.

I visited this restaurant on 3 occasions during my 4 days in Broome as the food was fantastic and the service great. Would suggest a great place to dine if you like Thai food.

Had house specialty Ginger Duck. Juicy duck with spices and lots of juice. Also had Chilli Seafood. Very hot but really well cooked. Initially sat outside but carnival in town and hard bench seating meant not much ambience plus a bit cold. Moved inside and very nice. Staff provided great service. Hint. Buy bottled sparkling water as the table water... More

The food at this restaurant was not very Thai unfortunately (I’ve been to Thailand over 10 times and eat Thai food each week). We ate the Red Curry Chicken, where the chicken was horrible and curry not Thai at all. The Barramundi in Curry was very overcooked. The better dish was the Beef with Basil, which was OK. Like most... More

I really enjoyed my meal as well as atmosphere at Som Thai. The meal was spectacular and tasty. I did not have to wait for a long time event though I was with a few friends. Not only that, the meals that we ordered came out at the same time. Also, all meals were excellent. I also enjoyed atmosphere and... More
