Meal sizes are really large, my fav is the chilli chicken but we have eaten so many dishes here and never had a bad one. Enjoy

Had dinner with my Aussie friend, by the way I am Thai. Ordered fish cake, tom kha kai and ginger vegetable stir fry with pork. Nothing was authentic, fish cake was awful. I would give a pass for the stir fry, but my friend would not lol. The point is if the restuarant serves 'Thai' food, then we expect to... More

The service was great and the atmosphere fine. However, the food that I ordered really tasted bland and lacking that intense Thai flavour. I ordered the chicken satay sticks (which I order at every Thai restaurant) for an entree and they were massive but also dry and tasteless. The green curry for my main was similar to the entree. I...

Hello tysenheit, Thanks for writing a review. It was nice to see you were happy with the service and atmosphere at our restaurant and sorry to read you thought some meals were bland. Well the green curry is usually made "aussie style" so it may not have been as intense as you like. If you prefer more intense, just ask... More

Being a local to the area my family & i have tried all the local Thai outlets. This is our favourite by far. The food is fresh and flavours are great. They have indoor and outdoor seating with gas heaters for those colder nights. It also has a children's menu. The staff are friendly and polite.

This little restaurant really is up there with some of the best. I suspect it is family owned and run and the service and food is exceptional which is obvious as it is always full of locals. Good value dishes and often specials are available. If you can't dine in - grab a take-away. Highly recommended.
