Green Curry to die for

We had dinner here last night! My husband started with the Thai style Peking duck which was delicious and huge for an entree! I started with the very delicious crispy pork belly. We then shared a Prawn Pad Med, prawns were too small and way too much cauliflower, and a delicious chicken green curry... read more

Nicest food ever with plenty of range of heat or otherwise. Great service. Unbeatable architecture in an old bank chamber. Loved it.

Friends called at new year from Adelaide. Both are lovers of Thai food. As a treat we booked into Bunga Thai on New Year's Day. They love Thai food and tryout any restaurant that is authentic. They loved the building and the food was as ordered. The service was excellent. Altogether a very satisfying experience. .

My friend and I visited Bunja Thai whilst I was in Bendigo and she is always raving about it and as I love Thai food, I was looking forward to going. Firstly, the building inside is stunning. They have done an amazing job keeping it in good condition seeing it was built in 1887. I found the service at Bunja... More

We arrived for a Xmas breakup lunch we were seated and left there for 15 minutes no one came to service us and another couple were also wondering when they would get served. There were quite a large number of empty dirty tables which were not cleared. Very disappointing. We walked out and gave our money to the local hotel... More

I ordered a satay chicken, rice and roti. The meal was OK, but not as I would have expected. The satay was pretty watery and not a lot of chicken. I have had better at this restaurant previously.

The building was lovely, but that's the best I can say. Food was below par and expensive. Possibly we are spoilt living in Melbourne and having access to cheap good quality thai, but I found this to be a disappointing dining experience overall.
