“Good Food, Good Service, Nice Decor and Good Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Green curry chicken, Chicken with chilli jam and cashews, Panang chicken - all yummo with plenty of chicken. Some Thai restaurants serve up plenty of vegies with a dash of chicken but the Som Tam serves up plenty of chicken with some (but not too many) vegies. Much better value and much tastier food than Sang's South Eastern Asian cuisine.

“Great Thai on the Sunshine Coast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Great Thai restaurant on the Sunshine Coast. The standard is always consistent and service is generally good. Our favourite dish is their prawn spring roll. However, make sure you dine in whilst the food is served hot!

Food was so excellent and well priced. Try the chicken sesame toasts. Delightful. Chicken fried rice was also very nice

“Inconsistent - such a shame”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

We have eaten in and had takeaway from Som Tam for many years and noticed in recent months that the quality of the food is quite variable. We had a takeaway Red Curry a few weeks ago that we have had at least 20 times before and it was so hot none of us could eat it. Their website is also down. Hope things change.

“One of the best Thai meals I've had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Fantastic meal. Heat of the dish was as the menu said. I like it a bit warmer and asked for some fresh chilli, this came with the meal and warmed it up nicely.
Very authentic meals.
We parked out the back and were pleased to see them growing a decent sized veggie/herb garden.
Although it was at the top end of price for Thai, it was well worth it.
