“Nice Thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

We had an enjoyable meal here. The food was very good with an extensive choice.
It was a shame to be sat next to a loud family, when there was alot of choice for tables.
The pricing is a little on the high side.
Generally a good experience.

Hi

Thank you for your generous review.

I am sorry for what happens I will investigate this, it might be because the other tables were also booked especially Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

However please accept our apologies for this inconvenience.

“Regular customer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Love this place - quick, fresh, easy thai meals. Lots to choose from and, apart from one busy night that took a while for meals to come out, I have had great nights dining here. Dining or take away, this restaurant is highly recommended.

“World class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

World class food, absolutly beautiful. They have some funny names on the menu, I had Sexy Little Duck, Pauline had Naughty Little Pig, the flavours are just magnificent, atmosphere and decor very good, the prices are excellent (you get more and better high class food than what they charge for and drinks are at a good price) they even pick you up and drop you back to your motel for no charge. THE BEST Thai food I have ever eaten ANYWHERE. Rgds Pete Levett Woodstock NSW Oz
