Amazing Thai Food

The food is amazing, the portions good, and the ambiance is very young and trendy! I really enjoyed the Tom Yum and the Butter Chicken. I've been here 3 times already and I've never left disappointed or hungry! A great place for a person looking for great Thai food on a budget.

What a lovely little place! My family and were just looking for a place to get a bite to eat and we stumbled across this gem. Meal portions are really big and you get your money's worth. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Food was full of flavoursome Thai-ness:) Would recommend this place to anyone.

I feel like this isn't quite a fair account of mooki. It's a solid good, but definitely not very good and certainly not average. I guess as a student going out for lunch my main problem with my meals I've had here are largely to do with size. It's not usually a reason I mark a place down, but when... More

A local restaurant, close to where we live. Ideal for a quick informal meal. Food is fresh and delicious.

Small and quaint restaurant with more than just noodles. I have had the coriander chickem curry twice now and it is delicious. Not a fancy restaurant more a neighbourhood relaxing place. Very casual vibe but lovely for a different type of date. Owners are super friendly and make you feel welcome. The salads are also really different and amazing.

This place was such fun with such a lovely vibe and great staff. The food was tasty - I highly recommend the halloumi starter, which wasn't our first choice but it's not going to be my last visit so I look forward to trying the calamari starter (which was recommended to me) next time.

great spot in glenwood - you can relax with a starter and no-one pushes you to order more. their noodle choices are so awesome- and their curries are so god. freshly prepared in this tiny kitchen spilling over with smells and chit chat. love the decor and their cool facebook posts! great team doing an amazing job!

This smaller establishment is a must visit for anyone who enjoys Thai or Vietnamese foods. Great food and great hosts. One drawback is that it can become unpleasantly noisy inside if there is a larger table booked so sit on the deck for a fantastic meal. They also accept BYO. (Try the steak or ribs)
