I must say I used to live directly behind this restaurant. The wonderful smells of spice would waft through my kitchen daily. It was like living in asia. Out the back of their kitchen is an extensive garden growing chillies, Kaffir limes, thai basil and other herbs. I watched as these were picked daily. I also saw the cars come... More

Whenever I am on the Sunshine Coast I make an effort to come or take away from Som Tam Thai. I alway enjoy the dishes but particularly like the beef massamum curry paired with coconut rice. I havent found quite as good anywhere else and this is what keeps me coming back. Eating in is a treat with a large... More

We have dined here several times and found the food to be delicious. Can highly recommend the Garlic Pepper beef ( not garlicky or peppery, just perfectly flavoured, and the yellow curry chicken). Licenced or BYO wine ($3.50 corkage per bottle). The decor is very attractive and staff friendly but painfully SLOW service! Asked for more water on table which... More

Ordered chicken chilli and basil and beef oyster both the meals were bland and the meat was tough to chew. Service was also very slow even though it wasn't busy, staff weren't friendly.

The service was good and the staff were friendly. The food came out promptly and tasted really yummy. The restaurant itself was very nice. Would recommend to others.

Well I read the reviews and went anyway. I popped my head in the door saw how Thai themed the resultant was and thought couldn't go wrong. How so wrong we were. Yes as per previous reviews curries were very sweet. Ordered a "hot" green chicken curry and had very little taste let alone spice. I dined with my wife... More

Went to Som Tam on 1st February, beautiful decor, lovely wait staff but some one in the kitchen must be trying to get rid of the sugar. The entreė was very good and tasted as should have been, but all three main courses were so sweet and sickly. We did mention it to the waitress but all she said was... More
