Husband and I were really looking forward to some a Thai food, and finally found this restaurant after initially being unable to locate it. Was really disappointed to find it closed, despite their hours on the door saying they should be open. As with another reviewer, there was no note to explain why. Very disappointing.

We went there on Tuesday night when it was cold and wet in Hanmer Springs. We were greeted by a roaring wood fire and a very friendly lady, maybe the owner. The curries were good and really warmed us up. It was an enjoyable experience.

Beautifully cooked Thai dishes. We ordered 'medium' chilli, but found it on the mild side. The entrees came out just before the mains, so it wasn't really an entree. Great service at this friendly place.

Nothing wrong with this small restaurant, no liquor licence but that was fine. Excellent Thai food. No particular ambience except for asian hole in the wall.

Location: After walking around, we found the Thai restaurant in a hidden hallway. Very lovely place. Food: At the beginning we didn't expect the food was authentic but we were wrong. All food we ordered were quite authentic and have a real Thai taste. Hospitality: the lady owner is very friendly, kind and welcome. In overall we love this place.... More

We walked along the street and realised there were a few hidden restaurants off from the sight. We decided to try this Thai Chilli restaurant since we love Thai food. At first we thought it would not be so good since it's in a small town and do not have enough ingredients to make real Thai food. However, it was... More

We were really looking forward to have a thai meal, unfortunately the restaurant was closed despite advertised opening hours and no notice was visible to tell us why.... What a pity! It is hard to score in this case but it seems I have to dot something above for my review to be "done" ......

One of the best Thai red curries I have ever had. The food was fantastic! The atmosphere, was slightly disappointing, but easily fixed, background music would be much more pleasant than listening to kitchen noises during a meal. Both my partner and i were very impressed with the food, cleanliness and presentation.

This is some of the tastiest Thai food we've ever had. The curries and rice dishes were so tasty. If we could have eaten more, we would have. The lady taking our orders and bringing our food was very friendly. We would definitely eat there again, and wish that we had eaten here on all our other trips to Hanmer... More
