An Average Dinner

Find a parking space along the side road was fairly easy on a Tuesday evening. Few customers were in the restaurant. My friends & I ordered our drinks & entrées - Tom Yum Goong (soup), fish cakes & the recommended "must try" Talay scallops. Soup was average - just a bit too sweet; fish cakes were... read more

Had a leaving party held here with 8 friends, our table was beautifully setup, the staff were also beautifully dressed in traditional thai attire. The gentleman who was on the front (Tana) was very kind and friendly. The food was to die for, The Massaman Lamb was to die for! The chef also provided an extra hot sauce for us... More

A great evening for a group of eight. Our table was ready when we arrived. The staff were very efficient and friendly. Entree's were superb. We got chicken satay skewers, curry puffs and prawn spring rolls. All very hot and tasty. The mains we ordered two massaman lamb. These were the best of the night. The lamb was tender and... More

Good Thai food, but not enough variety. I would say it's slightly overpriced for the ambience and location. Good lunch deals, but takes lot of time for the dish to be served

Standard restaurant which offers halal food. Service was efficient and friendly. Probably because it was pretty empty at the time. Food was hot and tasty and arrived promptly for a group of 10. We were charged extra for rice which was unexpected. I was given a cake as it was my birthday. This was a nice gesture. Overall, a great... More

Our family ate here recently. The food was average and it was overpriced. On the positive side the staff were very pleasant but the meals were very slow to arrive. Disappointing. We won't be going back.

Ate here for dinner one busy Monday night and really quite enjoyed it. We had chicken with oyster sauce and a yellow curry plus curry puffs as a main and all were really good. They have some excellent wines as well. The restaurant itself is quite small but I suspect they have seating upstairs if it gets busy. Was quite... More

Service great but food hit and miss, duck curry had very little duck, mostly skin.Prices have gone up and now very expensive for what you get. All meals tend to have lots of cut up carrot and beans to fill up the dish. BYO a bonus. Entree curry puffs under cooked and loads of mixed vegetables to fill it. Roti... More

Rather disappointed, the sweet chilli on the entree was so hot it took your breath away.. The seafood in the "Nickies Ocean" was tired and not fresh. The calamari was so hard and rubbery it was almost like a scrubbing brush. Service was friendly and attentive. Restaurant is a bit dated and could do with a freshen up.

Have eaten at Nickies twice and both times were amazingly served and wonderfully cooked. Prices for lunch were very good ($12approx) and dinner not bad ($22approx). They catered very well for our large group and were very consistent but not annoying with checking up on us. The atmosphere was very nice with a nice authentic set up. Also am a... More
