Have mostly got takeaways from here and haven't had a sit down meal in ages. Went with some friends for dinner last week as it was a central point and reminded myself why we usually go elsewhere. Staff are pleasant and i like the ambiance better than Thai Chef which is a bit ""over lit". But the meals were sub... More

Food was average and the service was alright. The waitress seemed to be new but was friendly :-) However I do prefer the Thai Chef Resteraunt around the corner as the lighting is much better. I ordered the swimming Rama which should have come with satay sauce. However I was disappointed with the minimal amount they put on the stir... More

As a person who enjoys Thai food, I found this experience didn't meet my expectations. The restaurant looks well set up and maybe a nice experience. I ordered a Take Away and wouldn't recommend it. The food was sitting in what seemed like heated water, not a thickened gravy, and it lacked the traditional Thai flavour and zing. Sorry folks,... More

The dinner prices are pretty stock standard and I think they fairly represent the price of the meal you get . The food is good , not amazing but consistently good , I don't recall... More

Thai Rain Forest Restaurant. Our group of eight visited this restaurant on New Year’s Eve. We ordered two different four person banquets in order to increase the food variation. The food we received was great, and the quantities were more than adequate for our group. The service staff were very friendly, and attentive. Water was supplied without asking, and our... More

We only ever order takeaways from here, which at $14.50 per dish it's not the cheapest but at least it tastes ok

Decided to try out Thai food while celebrating friend's birthday. The atmosphere is good as that night wasn't much customers. The food was average. It's the sauce which made them taste good. Especially like the satay peanut sauce. Although wasn't spicy as what I think is should be, but it really taste good. Their curry is good as well, though... More
