“Delicious but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Had this as takeaway on a girls weekend away. It is pricey compared to other Thai restaurants, $21 for a main. But then again thats Daylesford for you. I had the Ginger Chicken and vegetables and it was very nice, you could actually taste all the herbs in the meal!

“Food was great and plentiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Four of us enjoyed a meal staring with entree followed by a few main dishes with Thai fried rice. Meals were authentic in taste and good quality produce used. An older gentlemen was hoveriing too much around the tables, should back off a bit and leave to the waitresses. We had Banana Dumpling for desert - was to die for! Premises and amenities were clean, dress warm for winter, a little chilly inside. Would come back again!

“Good food, reasoanle prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We fancied Chinese on the night we ate at Red Ginger but the good Chinese in town was full and the other Chinese up the road looked empty, which seemed like a bad sign.

Limited by options, we decided on Thai instead and it wasn't such a bad decision.

The menu is quite extensive and the food was nice, however the venue could do with a bit more 'Thai' decor in it to spruce it up.

The prices were ok, nothing great but you need to remember where you are. Most places in Daylesford are a bit more expensive that what you would expect back in Melbourne.

I'm pretty sure this might be the only option for Thai in Daylesford, so I'm not sure a comparison is available. Having said that, we would have opted for the Chinese up the road if we could get in.

“I've had better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Very exspensive wouldn't mind paying the money if it was worth it my husband and I eat a lot of Thai and this didn't even come close, wouldn't recommend it the pad Thai smelt like dog food? Made me feel sick, hubbies lamb massaman was tuff flavours good. Rotti bread was thick like Indian style bread?

“Great Thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Lots of options at this restaurant - Vegetarian, Seafood even Vegan!

Be warned, when on the menu it says hot chilli or spicy - its HOT!
