What do you want when you spend some hard earned cash in a restaurant? We went for a family celebration and had a great time, for great food and atmosphere; authentic and fresh, whoever is cooking in THAT kitchen gets a big thank you from us. This has got to be one of the best tasting Thai food outside Thailand.... More

One of the best Thai restaurants outside Thailand. I've tried many on the coast and I'm so thankful this little gem is so close to home. I used to frequent the GC's most well known Thai but no need to travel that far anymore. Very authentic and rich Thai flavours. I can't wait to taste the whole menu. Only been... More

We've been eating here for more than 5 years now & never had a bad meal. Our friends and family members also love the food. We love Massaman Chicken Curry - a stew of chicken maryland in a mild/creamy curry, the meat is so tender it falls of the bone. Another favourite is Choo Chee Curry Prawns - dried curry... More

We are regulars and absolutely love this place! Food is great. Bangkok chicken wings are to die for! Service is always good and very friendly. I think the ones giving a bad review just had a bad day lol!

This was a noisy restaurant. Seems very popular maybe due to the fact there is nothing else close. The food was not very authentic and was of a poor taste. More suited to those with a less adventurous pellet

Being a new local we gave this restaurant a go ordered pad thai with chicken which ended up having mostly noodles and egg. Decided to go again and explain this. The lady on the phone was quite rude and said if we want more chicken we have to pay more. We got our meals home and both pad thai and... More

We order from Thai River Kwai for the first time, for take away. We order the cashew beef... Which didn't have one single cashew in it. We also got the Pad Kee Mow seafood (a noodle dish)... The seafood was lovely but there was only a few strands of noodles and then we got the masaman curry with chicken. This... More

This friendly little restaurant has a good menu and the service is very homely. It has memorabilia of the Bridge over the River Kwai and you can dine inside or out. They have a special board for seasonal variations or new items. I have dined here a number of times over the past five years and the standard is always... More

This is a local suburban restaurant that would not be out of place as a high end city eatery. Shared three entrees and three mains with my dining companions last night (Saturday). The quality of meals and the cheerfulness of the staff left us wanting more. The cashew and chicken main was tasty, the spices just on the edge of... More
