We wouldn't dream of visiting the Sunshine Coast without lunch at The Spirit House. On this, our fourth time, we again weren't disappointed. There is ample off-street parking, then a meandering path leads through tropical landscaping, past Asian statues and a lake, to the semi-circular restaurant. It is a clever build-up to the warm welcome from the Maitre 'd. Service... More

I have been here a few times with my wife who has been a long time fan and cooks from the restaurants (very good) cook books. I love going for lunch as you get to see the full splendor of the grounds. You cannot go wrong with the menu but of note (for our next visit) was the fish of... More

Lunch for four and we all had the banquet, it was absolutely exquisite. Every course was just amazing especially the coconut soup and the pork belly, could not recommend it more highly. The setting is out of this world and loved the water dragons that wander about, but not to close to the diners. The privacy of each table is... More

Wow is a word that you often hear being muttered in the stunning gardens of this restaurant, the people responsible for Spirit House can be justifiably proud of the incredibly lush surrounds that add a genuine taste of Thailand in Australia. The food was delicious and beautifully fresh, I highly recommend this restaurant for a special meal.

Late August found us in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, reacquainting ourselves with the Spirit House and all it has to offer in culinary delight. Head Chef, Ben Bertei, continues to amaze diners with his excellent contemporary Thai cuisine and it was a pleasure to return to this unique establishment after two or three years. The Spirit House has only changed... More

Lovely ambience, it was a cool night and we were outside, heating helped but some overhead heating would be useful. The entrees were a taste sensation, could not fault. Whole fish is the signature dish and was superb. Two other mains were mediocre. The complement of thai spices, coriander, chilli and ginger, a taste sensation. Next time a visit in... More

We went for lunch, amazing! The fried rice was gorgeous. The duck dish was divine. Service was excellent. The place is unforgetable. We went back a second time before we left the Sunshine Coast. I cant recommend it enough. I think they do functions in the gardens. I said to my hubby (of 22 years) "I want to get married... More
