“Tastes like Thailand!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

Came here because the price list was less scarry than in some of the places near by. The staff is friendly, the service fast enough, the general ambiance is laid back. however, the food.... beautiful. We both loved our mains (a soup and a massaman curry) and the portions are large enough for a hungry man... whch is saying something! One dissapointment, i'm too full for dessert though i"d been eyeing a couple ones.

“Bit hit or miss but never bad!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

We tend to come here once a week, due to the proximity to city and a friend's house and this place is either absolutely brilliant or just ok but in truth, in at least ten visits, I've never had a bad meal here. Mid-week tends to be better than weekends in terms of ambience, service and food (we use the pork belly as a marker).

The service and food is always quick and fresh and the beer and wine list is actually fairly good (there's even a good Argentine Malbec on there!). The serving sizes are also pretty generous and so we only ever order 1 rice between two people. Finally, the prices are unbelievably good given the location!

All in all, a nice spot to grab a quick meal at Darling Quarter and we wouldn't keep going back if it wasn't so reasonable.

“Trendy, real Thai restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

This restaurant, located in the series of restaurants behind the Imax theater in Harbourside, was hopping with business on a mid-weekday night. I was with a friend from Bangkok who did all the ordering, so I don't know the names of the dishes except for the sticky rice dessert, but my friend assured me the menu was authentic Thai. It all was delicious. For those interested, Nok means "bird" so the English name would be Bird Bird. The fish dish was artfully arranged on a fish-shaped dish (look closely at the pic).
