Thai-Tastic takeaway

I often get takeaway from Thai Carnation- either a fri or sat night, and I have to say it is always very good. I usually get the mixed entrée at $8.50 you get four different samples, a spring roll, curry puff, fish cake and satay chicken. and comes with a small container of sauce to pour on. Then I... read more

Good food prices fair. The seating was not good with packing in too tight but fixed the situation quickly. Do not agree with corkage at $3:00 per head which these days is just a rip off. Would we come back? I doubt it as there are many other places who dont charge corkage here in Wollongong.

Visited this place several times and they've been consistently good. Good and friendly staff members too. Recommend their pad thai. Can be a little hard to find a park sometimes but it's definitely worth the effort!

Took the family here for a dinner recently. Having been many times with my wife, we felt the kids might enjoy it and they did. Started with some appetisers of chicken skewers, curry puffs, and the specialty, crying tiger. We then had a chuck curry and prawns with peanut sauce. All dishes were fantastic and the service was great.

You know when you head back to your home town after years away and you hope that one of you fave restaurants is still there? This was a moment for me and my husband recently. After a pretty bad experience at a restaurant the night before, I was desperate to show my man that Wollongong was worth it in the... More

One of my favourite restaurants in Wollongong when I lived there! Recently visited again - and service was prompt and unobtrusive. The menu choice was great - food served was delicious. Would highly recommend- if visiting - centrally located and value for great money!

Across from our hotel in central Wollongong we had a choice of cafes and restaurants. On a cold Tuesday night, the Thai Carnation had lots of diners. We ordered an entree and a mains each. The servings were generous and not expensive. The food was fresh and colourful and full of flavour. We enjoyed our meal very much.
