Disappointing

My daughter and I went for lunch today it was a second choice to our favourite Thai lemongrass as it was closed ... We also found the ridiculous waiter with his fixed grin and an Aussie waitress who had no idea about Asian cuisine believe me when I say no idea!! The entrees were very nice we both... read more

Stopped in for a quick lunch break. I should of known not Seeing one thai person there that I was in for some sort of experience. Ordered a curry while a lady sprayed Ajax on the table in front of me and burnt my nose with the smell of bleach for. Dish came out dirty with cold rice. Chicken tasted... More

This used to be our favourite Thai restaurant and we were devastated when it changed hands. It is now run by someone (not Thai) who doesn't give a damn about the food quality or the service. It doesn't even taste like Thai food any more and the name is a total misnomer - there is no spice at all. The... More

We all liked the food but found the senior staff goofy so my teenagers wouldn't want to go again to this Thai . I particularly like the Green Curry here and would go again for that but not as often as I might have otherwise .

Went here once, ordered the chicken and prawn phad thai and couldn't eat the meat. The basic recipe was nice, not too sweet but the chicken just couldn't be eaten it was awful so I left it on the plate. For what chicken costs and the amount that is put into the dish I'm sure it would be worth spending... More

The ownership of this place changed about a year ago and the food quality has only gone downhill. It has lost its authenticity as Thai food and is someone's idea of what should appeal to the general punters. It has been de-chilli-ised and made very bland. The service is barely there and (on the night we were there) the person... More

We have a number of favourites including choo chee goong ( prawns in red curry paste), beef mad saman, pork with chilli lime and green peppercorns, deep fried fish... More

I agree with what others have said - it is definitely not a restaurant to go to if you are looking for a romantic night out. The restaurant can be a bit noisy when you have a few people in there. It can be seen as good or bad depending on what you are hoping for (a bit of noise... More

We had a group dinner on Saturday night and each ordered a different dish which we shared. Duck curry, chicken with cashews, stir fry veges in oyster sauce, special fried rice, massaman beef, pad Thai with prawns, etc. all dishes were terrific. Just a couple of small things, the pieces in the massaman beef were very large and the satay... More

Have been there a couple of times before and the meals were excellent. Today 6 of us tried the lunchtime banquet and it was very disappointing. The entrees looked and tasted like they had been re-heated from yesterday, the chicken in the soup had a foul taste about it and the pad thai was average. I will say that the... More
