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

Good service, fresh food but just a little disappointing with the flavours, or lack thereof for the family at Hot Chilli Bean. Nothing wrong with it really but just lacking a little flavour

Can't fault the service from phil. Was very accommodating to children which was nice. Food was nice too but its super expensive. $9.90 for 3 spring rolls (not large either) is absurd. Way more expensive than other Thai restaurants and due to that we will go elsewhere in the future.

2 adults 2 kids walk in, a good looking clean well presented restaurant. i am guessing it was the owner that showed us to the table very welcoming and genuine. Great fresh food served in good time., will be back again if we lived in coolum it would definitely be a regular.

we grabbed a takeaway from here and whilst my 'Chilli bean lamb special' was excellent, my wife's yellow curry was very ordinary, lacking either spice or flavour. Lamb special = hit :) yellow curry = miss :(
