Excellent and Different Thai Food

We just found Pomegranate walking by. In the east end of Balmain away from all the busy area, but what a find. Dishes are so different than your typical suburban Thai. Make sure you have the massaman curry and pork belly. A little dear than normal but serving are large. The boss takes your orders... read more

Was not expecting this! Random little restaurant in Balmain (right across from Sydney proper). Local friend took us here and I was blown away by how tasty the food was. Wish these guys were closer to my hometown.

12 of had dinner here on New Years Eve ahead of watching the fireworks. A really enjoyable meal - great food from an extensive menu! The only challenge was with so many people that they brought all the food at once rather than staggering it - we were all sharing so too much really in 1 go BYO so we... More

Cam here with family at their request, booked ahead for a Friday night seating. All dishes including meat and fish were nicely flavoured and spiced and freshly prepared. Service friendly and efficient. Portions generous as they tend to be here, but prices certainly reasonable.

Our group of 4 agreed that Pomegranate offered the most delicious Thai we had each eaten in years. Really distinctive layered flavours from the betel leaf starter to the chili fish main.

Fabulous well developed flavours. The experience of the owner and chef is evident. The duck choo chee was a standout. We tried a variety of dishes and all were good, different flavours, and some were just excellent. On the edge of Balmain so parking wasn't too difficult. We wil be back for sure.

My mother's group gets together at this restaurant 5 -6 times a year and we end up having a great night every time. Being a local I also love to choose here for takeaways when it's "my choice". The starring attraction is the Pla Grob starter and I'm not sure what would happen if they ever dared take it off... More

The food at Pomegrante is sensational especially the Pork Belly and the Spare Ribs. The Banana flower salad is mind blowing. The downside is the noise levels on a busy night - but hey it adds to the ambience. I am a devotee....
