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)...

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).

We are really fussy when it comes to thai food..... and this restaurant definitely passes. The quality and taste are very authentic. The restaurant is decorated very well, and has a nice ambience. We will be back.

At time of writing this there was only one other review.. DISREGUARD IT! This place is amazing! While we always wait a little while longer then most places and the service is a little slow, the wait is every bit worth it as the food is incredible! Not sloppy or ordinary like most places, but beautifully presented and tastes to... More

We have eaten here a few times and on the whole the food has not been too bad but always seems to be a little salty but very salty on the last visit. On a Friday it is very busy so best to book and be prepared for a little wait as service can be slow there always seems to... More
