“Nice Thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Went with a Voucher for entrees, mains, rice and a bottle of wine. The food was very tasty, a good mix of spices and good portion sizes. The entree was the chiefs platter with curry puffs spring rolls and money bags, again very good the only small thing was the money bags a little over cooked. It was good value for money the only little thing was the bottle of wine was only a small bottle holding about 2 glasses of wine not the standard full size bottle. But it was still good value, the staff were nice and smiled often.We enjoyed our meal and would go back.

“First time perfect, 2nd time just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

Visited this place for the second time round since mid 2010. First time we were so impressed and raved on about it since then.After moving out of the area it was a mission to get there so made a special effort this time round for my hubby's bday.
Management has changed so small details are overlooked. ie. menus were dirty and falling apart and taped together, even drinks menus have black marker all over crossing out prices or things that are unavailalbe. I mean surely printing a couple of menus and laminating is not that expensive. Food portions are large and tasty for the price. Did not enjoy the satay skewers which was like a solid piece of chicken on skewer and seemed quite deep fried and dry. Struggled to get off skewer so much so that my hubby ended up with a piece of wood stuck in his throat. Prefer it when the chicken are in bite sized pieces and sauced up with extra on this side. This however was just on the side.
Yellow curry was lovely but very limited chicken in the dish, I counted 7 pieces in total which meant the onions and potatoes over took the dish. Green curry was beautiful.
Also behind of their reception desk area thats in view of clients hsould be more tidy, there were random things standing and looked extremely cluttered.
the man who seated us was the same man who was stood at the front door on a smoke break dressed in dirty old jeans. the waitresses are very good and on the ball but all in all if they looked at improving these small points then it could be so much better.
Also the wet towels given to you needs replacing. If you come there before dark it looks old and grubby almost blue in colour and not white like it does when its darker.
BYO corkage costs $3 per bottle and you get unlimted rice for $2.50 pp. Also the previous owners played lovely instrumental thai music in background but now it was westernised, old and just killed the mood! Value for money but unfortunately small things put me off this place and sadly will not be going back there again nor recommending it to friends.
