“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2008

Australia is loaded with great Thai restaurants. This isn't one of them. Thai Pan claims to offer "cuisine from Laos and Thailand".

When I visited, there were kitchen problems that caused food to take in excess of 45 minutes for delivery. The staff was indifferent and offered no explanations or apologies. Three nearby tables vacated before receiving their food. The employees' reaction was only to quickly remove the empty water glasses from the tables and pretend they didn't witness the dissatisfaction.

The calimari stir-fry had no flavor other than ground pepper, and the pad thai w/ pork was simply the worst I've ever had. These were likely the result of the kitchen problems, but I don't know which is worse .. bad food or a restaurant knowingly serving dishes below their standards.
