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 :(

This had to be the worst Thai food on the planet. The curry puffs were full of potato, and tough. The chicken sate was fried to death... dry and tough. The Tom Kha Gai was unrecognisable as such. When this was pointed out, the proprietor's response was...we've been selling it for 17 years and had no complaints. Bet none of... More

I am very upset to read your review. We do try very hard to provide food which is delicious and satisfactory to our customers, after all, it is very much to everyone's benefit when our customers are happy. We do get a lot of positive feedback which encourages us to continue doing what we are doing, but I can accept... More

Choose Chilli Bean for the food rather than the ambience. Location and setting is "Asian Basic" but their stirfrys have made this our favourite dinner stop.

Nice standard Thai cafe. Prompt. Polite. And reasonably Priced. I wasn't blown away but walked away satisfied and with a doggy bag for a late night snack.
