Great Food

Went to Bunja Thai 4/12/14 for dinner with 8 family memebers. We all had different meals and all the meals were fantastic. Entree and mains were quiet large. The price is reasonable the same as hotel meals. Haven't been there for awhile but will differently go back again soon than later.

We come to this restaurant often, it is my absolute favourite. The food is always excellent. The beverage service is a little slow when they are busy and I'm not a fan of their wine list so I usually BYO. I would recommend booking early in the evening because they wrap it up around 10pm

A wonderful welcome from Jon who also delivered attentive professional and unobtrusive service throughout the night. He was assisted by the equally professional and interested `Trainee` though we suspect this is not her real name. Both made us feel like welcome guests in their home. We were seated in what was like a private room in this beautiful, ornate former... More

We had a group of 10 people for dinner. Every single meal was delicious, and came out on time without waiting for ages. Yummo, we will be going back there.

My wife and I have eaten a lot of Thai food and this was certainly some of the best. We passed through Bendigo over our Christmas break and found this restaurant in an amazing old bank building. We were so happy to have found it and was our highlight of our stay in Bendigo. It is a unique mix of... More

On a visit with my partner and her adult daughter, we were bitterly disappointed on a number of fronts, and will NEVER go there again. The service was pathetic, with a waiting time of over an hour before an order was even taken for drinks, despite 2 approaches to the counter, and even then the waitress walked away mid-order while...

We arrived at Bunja Thai on Saturday last week. Were greeted by their wait staff with a friendly smile, very polite and took us to our table. We ordered and got our meals quite quickly. As we love our herb and spices - Bunja Thai delivered the dishes on a high note! Our bar waiter made us the best Pina... More

We come to Bunja whenever we are in Bendigo. Food has consistently better than the popular Thai restaurants we go to in Melbourne. We've always had good service, when its busy the wait for food is always a little longer but that's expected. The Panang Curry Beef was excellent, as was what I stole from my wife's Pud Thai Chicken... More

Waited forever for our food. Still waiting for my Masseman curry. Hardly an apology or recompense. Place needs a good clean, especially toilets. Overpriced and overrated. Don't bother as food is not spectacular.

I come to Bunja in April for a work dinner. Where our table was placed the air conditioning kept blowing in all of our eyes therefore we asked for the flow to be moved or turned off. All night it was kept on after asking several times therefore we gave up & tolerated it. Food was ok though not overly... More
