It was a great night. I definitely recommend the whole tamarind fish. Only thing is we shared, so hard when it is so delish!

Turning off the Bruce Highway at Yandina you might think only the Ginger Factory is on offer, however, drive another five minutes and you will stumble upon Spirit House. An extremely unimposing entrance leads you past the cooking school and along a gravel path beside a large dam to the restaurant. Be prepared to be surprised as you stumble upon... More

I have wanted to eat here for years and finally decided to have a late birthday dinner here with friends. Originally there were only 6 of us but plans changed and I had to up the number to 7 which meant our 6.30 dinner became 8.30 however this wasn't an irritant to us. Being able to walk though the gardens... More

Yep, it's everything and more of what is written about it. Faultless. It ia expensive but absolutely worth every cent. You're not going every week (I would if could tho) so for a real treat, makes a booking.

Had plenty of people recommending this restaurant as a must while on the Sunshine Coast and I didn't disappoint at all. Went there for lunch, the food and service was amazing. Highly recommend the salmon soup and pork belly starter. Will definitely be getting the whole snapper on the next visit for main.

Last night attended Spirit House at Yandina for a 30th birthday celebration. Had heard so much about this restaurant and it did not disappoint. Food was divine - interesting mix of thai spices the most exciting. Party of 32 had the banquet which was five courses plus alternate drop dessert. Food intolerances catered for. The staff were outstanding. Do yourself... More

We had heard about the restaurants reputation many times over the years and finally went for a birthday celebration. Though I booked 4 weeks out, its popularity meant that the earliest I could get was 8.30 p.m. This just increased the anticipation and it was worth it. We had the banquet, which is 4 courses and it was absolutely delicious.... More
