A surprising find for newbies to Brunswick. Food was excellent, had the chicken chilli stirfry and goat curry, both delicious! as was the squid starter. Impressed by the personal service and maître'd's knowledge of wine. The happy hour from 5-7pm is great value! We will be back to try the roti which looked good from where I was sitting!

Horrible, HORRIBLE customer service and mediocre food. Tom phat has out grown it's boots and now that Brunswick is stepping it's food game up it isn't even in the top 10 Thai or Asian fusion places within a stones throw of its own front door. Also after I wrote a complaint email to the owner who promised me a call... More

Tom Phat is excellent for service, food and cocktails. One of the best places to eat in Brunswick. Fast service and the staff are always friendly. Food is fresh and tasty.

We were meeting friends for brunch and came here as our first option was too busy. We are so glad we did. It was just divine. I had black sticky rice which was amazing. The staff were very friendly and the place was roomier than other nearby cafés. It was a very good choice.

... and we chose Tom Phat based on a walk-by. Got there just before dinner crowd, and were seated right away (albeit a bit grudgingly) without reservation. No more than :15 later, there was minimum :30 wait to be seated. Cozy, but not small, place. Small waiting/seating area where I don't believe food was served - seated maybe four people.... More

Mid week dining with no prior booking. We were offered a seat and drinks menu while we waited for a table to be set. We barely waited 10 minutes before we were shown to our table. Interesting and varied menu. We chose 3 entree size dishes and 2 main size dishes together with rice which was plenty for 4 people.... More

I loved eating at this place. We had to put our name down on a list, but the front door dude was pleasant and got us a seat outside and a drink whilst we waited. I didn't feel the wait was too long, plenty of interesting ppl to watch as they walk down Sydney road! Delicious food and lovely staff.... More

Food was ok. I got the pork belly which was a little dry. I wouldn't go there for ambience as the place is quite crowded and very noisey. I would only go again if I was on my own and hungry.

True it was a busy night but the wait for the food was endless. Three dishes arrived then a wait before our friend got hers. One dish arrived cold and the Masaman goat curry had little goat and some bits were inedible. We asked for rice but when it hadn't arrived halfway through eating we cancelled it. It was left... More
