Nice Thai food

Had a takeaway meal from here tonight... Was freshly cooked & prompt. Food was tasty & fresh. Had a curry & stir fry & was happy with both. Returned from Thailand two months ago so have been very spoilt with traditional food... so I think the food here is probably a little westernised...

We had take-away from this restaurant on the strength of reading TripAdvisor reports. To say we were disappointed is an under statement. We had Chicken stir fry and Thai Fried Rice. There were no Thai flavours in either dish. The beef in the rice was dry and tired and the vegetables in the stir fry were cut in huge pieces... More

Hubby and I popped in for an impromptu dinner on Friday night. I really wanted chicken and cashew or a noodle dish - so the new ladys suggestion - combine both, WOW. It was fabulous. Hubby enjoyed his oyster beef also. We again had Chilli Bean on Monday night, takeaway this time. Was disappointed when my order (which was to... More

I had the Pad Thai and my husband had the Red Curry Duck. While we waited quite a while for our meal it was definitely worth the wait!! Meals were a good size and not expensive. The customer service was very good. Staff very friendly. We'll definitely be back.

We ate here tonight and arrived about 5.45 pm. We had the best choice of tables but by the time we left the place was packed and the takeaway business was brisk too. The food was the reason for this popularity!

Amazing food, the best chicken satay I've eaten. The location is wonderful and staff friendly but it's the food that's a stand out.

The entrées all seemed like pre-packed frozen options and were a bit soggy, but edible. The mains were lovely. Creamy sauces which were quite sweet, good size serves with plenty sauce and crisp veg. Will definitely eat here again.

Yum! We went here for a girls night and had delicious food! I had the satay beef and it was time! Pricing is reasonable. Service also reasonable (young girls, but they weren't bad. Just a bit annoying that you could hear them chatting and laughing just near us). I'd come back. :)

Found this little place after coming out of the surf club which was packed and too crowded. Staff were very friendly and the beef massaman was good although I should of asked for a bit more chilli in it ( personal preference ). Good casual place
