One of the best on the coast

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... read more

We love this restaurant. Its as close as you can get to being in Thailand while in Australia. The food is fantastic. The service is great and friendly. We live in NSW and always make sure we include a visit to River Kwai Thai when we're up here.

We've been eating here for many years with our families and friends. We all love the food and service. The restaurant is very busy on the weekends so I recommend booking in advance or go there during weekdays. Tasty dishes made from fresh ingredients especially their Choo Chee Curry Prawns. They use local tiger prawns from Jacobs Well. The chicken... More

My family has lived close to the restaurant for 7 years and have been enjoying their food ever since. We usually order take away food but have eaten in on occasion too. We are never disappointed with the food we order, although sometimes we have had to wait longer for food when they are busy. We would always recommend the... More

My takeaway looked and tasted disgraceful- won't be returning! Chicken came as a whole piece of breast & leg. One piece of potato. Chicken wasn't cooked through. Steamed rice was nice.

First I must say that the ambience and service here are fab. We dined early on a wed night to it was just us and we had great friendly service. The food is really tasty and flavoursome great but the portion size is really disappointing. We felt that a curry for $23 should come with complimentary rice, and a shredded... More

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

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
