Where do we begin.. Firstly, the state of the garden in the entrance is a good gauge of the standard of restaurant that awaits, with half dead plants greeting us in dirty cheap, black plastic pots.

We shared curry puffs and coconut prawns for entree then a yellow curry and red lamb for main. One word: Superb. All of it. And... More

Beautiful food is on offer with our favourite being the spicy crunchy pork. Meals taste wonderful and are very fresh. Unfortunately the restaurant itself is in need of a renovation. The staff do an unbelievably good job with what they've got to work with. The atmosphere feels a bit cheap when the food is soooo devine. We've been here countless... More

We decided on the Tom Yum Prawn Soup and a Chicken Stir Fry with vegetables. Unfortunately the entree and main meal was... More

This would have to be one of my all time favorite Thai restaurants, the food tasted great, was hot and on time. The staff were really friendly and we had a great night, I will be going back for certain.

Very plush interior with sea glimpses that was nice....we were seated next to the windows to look at the sea but it was overshadowed by a very messy courtyard with old cardboard boxes strewn all over the patio...there was a lovely fountain that could hardly be seen because of the mess....please clean it up! I had a nice vegetarian dish... More

This is a small restaurant tucked away in an upstairs venue off the main street of Caloundra, Bulcock St. The food is freshly prepared to perfection, with authentic Thai flavours. Often busy - but this is a good sign for me.
