Excellent Food

My Husband & I dined at this restaurant recently for the second time. The meal was to die for!! I had previously reviewed this restaurant & had commented that it tends to be a bit noisy. The building has beautiful, ornate, high ceilings. Unfortunately that is why it tends to be noisy but it sure... read more

I've been to various areas of Thailand numerous times and the food at Bunja Thai is as good. The Tom Yum soup was fantastic. Lovely building with authentic Thai decorations. Good service. We dined on a Thursday night and were surprised how busy it was, not only was the restaurant full, there was a continual stream of customers collecting take... More

Whilst visiting Bendigo over the Easter long weekend we decided to try Bunja Thai on our last night so as to have a better look at the building it occupies. The old bank building is just as spectacular inside as it is out. An amazing piece of Bendigo architecture from the 1800's. We also love our Thai food having frequented... More

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

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.

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...
