Good food

We had mee grob, spring rolls, red curry, sweet and sour stir fry, coconut rice and a bottle of wine. Mee grob was a little disappointing...a dish made with very crispy rice thin noodles and caramelized sauce...was in fact devoid of crispy noodles and drenched in an overpoweringly sweet sauce.

This Thai Restaurant has food that is absolutely delicious and wines to match that are not overpriced. The special -Massamun Beef Curry is outstanding.If in Caloundra do not miss it.!!!!

customer service of gentleman behind the bar/counter is very poor- doesn't understand English very well and found it difficult to communicate- we then paid for our meals and found out we were over charged and the food we 'ordered' was not what we requested. Food was of good quality however I would not recommend due to bad customer service

Casual family dinner, saw some good comments on dining apps! Once we sit down we find the lighting are very dark inside, I could not read the menu. We order " jungle curry" from the menu, it said very hot but when it comes it actually a bowl of chicken and veggies in Thai spice juice and hot chili on... More

Six diners and only one enjoyed their meal.....the chicken in the cashew nut stirfry was dry and the sauce so salty it burnt my tongue......pork stirfry sauce was sickly sweet and red curry was bland......if this is an award winning restaurant and the best that Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast has to offer then we will head elsewhere next time....

Got take away here, after ordering online. When I walked in, the place was packed which was a good sign. The chicken satay sticks were superb. The spring rolls were average (when will we learn to stop ordering these overpriced morsels). The massaman beef really good, the vegetable noodles ok and the ginger chicken very ordinary. Portion sizes were great... More

Went here a couple of nights ago. The Tom Yum soup was tasty, quite a small serve but enough for me. We had the slow cooked red curry lamb. The meat was really tender and sauce tasty. Staff were friendly.

We had an interesting evening tonight. Food was beautiful, I particularly enjoyed the generous sized entree of dim sim, satay and spring rolls. The meal sizes were generous unlike a fancy Asian fusion place we went to in Melbourne recently!! What was interesting was our young waitresses! Eager to please?? I was still finishing off the last of my entree... More

Dined in this place several times over that last few years. Decided to get take away for a change. Disappointing....food was average and not as good as the meals we'd had recently at Num Wang Thai.
