Rapid service, good food, reasonable value. Combine with a gelato around the corner for a 'balanced' meal.

Food was good and tasty but i would say it was a little overpriced. On the door was a menu, we looked at it and thought it was average. As soon as we sat down the prices on the menu were about $4 more.

The owner, a Thai gentleman, is very nice and his wife apparently whipped the food up. The fried rice and beef dishes were good, but too many large uncooked onion chunks, maybe ask for no onions:) But good value for money, and tasty

After a long day's trip, we popped in Amazing Thai for a quick dinner. We had Pad Thai (noodles) with pork, roast duck curry and stir fried chicken with cashew nuts. They all tasted good, but the pork & duck were thick & tough. We had deep fried ice-cream which was just average.

We headed in quite late on a Monday night hoping just to get soem take away, but not sure if anything would be open. The meals we ordered were wonderful - even though eaten from take away containers in our motel room. The best Thai I have had in a long time!

Lovely food, tasty and fresh, lovely staff. Had the eye fillet which was cooked to perfection accompanied by a lovely sauce. BYO is a bonus. Lovely views to the bay, would definitely go back again.

This would get a 3 star review based on the average food, and sub-par service (the successful approach is to go and find your server who is setting a nearby table to ask for a drink, for example). But the kicker here was that the scallops in the scallop dish were sadly sub-standard. After mentioning this, and leaving the scallops... More

We are picky eaters and I am a gourmet cook. We liked the menu so we tried it. Tasty food and fresh ingredients. Pretty view of the water. Specify how hot you want it as it can be spicy. I ordered a mild level and it was still spicy!

I stopped over for their $12.50 lunch. I ordered basil chicken and asked for it to be extra extra hot and believe me it was exactly the right hotness I wanted along with a generous sized lunch plate. The food tasted really good and I who normally does not have lunch breaks will possibly end up in the restaurant tomorrow... More

My husband and I went to Amazing Thai recently in November. It was really well organised and the staff are all polite and efficient. Our meals were considerably large and very enjoyable!! I think the prices are quite high, but the service is great so we didn't really mind. The menu is well laid out and there are plenty of... More
