It was our last night in Coolum and one of the only places we hadn't visited was Coolum Thai Spice despite the fact that every table was full every time we walked past. It's a very simple restaurant that is almost entirely outdoors. The inside is really a counter for paying and a kitchen that is... read more

We called in for lunch today, a busy Sunday at Coolum. The waiter, older guy who I assume is the owner, was very polite and explained the menu in full. Lunch is cheaper than dinner, starting at $7.90. My wife and I had curry, Massaman and Red curry and they were fantastic at $10.90 each, what a great meal for... More

We were fortunate that the owners were able to modify to our wishes including spicing it up and making us salt and pepper squid which was much appreciated.

We were passing this restaurant looking for place to have lunch. Friendly, mature waiter explained the menu and prices and we've decided to eat at this place. Food was very tasty, very nice presentation, service excellent. Prices for lunch are lower than for dinner, this was explained to us. Very good value for lunch meals with professional staff and service

Bought takeaway last night, terrific customer service from a male, I guess he may be the owner but not sure. The food was sensational and so much of it for a great price, even had a quick beer while sitting outside watching the world go by. Very quick with meals and lovely and hot. Keep up great work.
