Skip the entrées, mains were great

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.

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.

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

This is a really tasty eating experience in a curbside setting. Reservations are essential. We find it great to eat early and follow it with a beach walk and a local gelati.

Late evening (for Coolum that is). Found this restaurant, on the sea front, indoor and out door tables. Was about to close, however we were warmly greeted, seated and offered the menus. We were not rushed, service was impeccable. We had an entree of salt and pepper calamari. Tender, moist and tasty. The mains were stir fried ginger veggies with... More

The Hot Chilli Bean has got it all. You can pick up a take away on your way home from the beach or stop, kick back and enjoy the great food and friendly service. If you like your curry hot just ask Pat to pump up the chilli and challenge yourself!!

Went there for dinner with family last week incl our 3 year old son. Phil who served us was so friendly and nothing was a bother, he was great with the kids and time for a laugh or two. The food came very quickly and our boy told them, that it was the best coconut rice he'd ever had. The... More
