Scouted out a Thai restaurant the last couple of days wandering the streets. The decor is Thai and a fork and spoon are the only utensils provided. Our tour down the Queensland coast is documented in our not for profit blog havecarryonwilltravel.com. The food was very tasty and a good blend of flavors. We ordered a chicken dish and it... More

Visited here for dinner last week. The menu isn't complex, but has some really good options. The staff are friendly enough. The real highlight is the food. The curries were spectacular and bursting with flavour. The one thing I didn't think much of was the coconut rice: it was orange, and upon asking found out that it had a stack... More

Short walk from my hotel, this restaurant is quite quaint, staff are very friendly, restaurant was clean & food was fantastic. No liquor licences, BYO only slightly disappointing for the business traveller. Will eat there again without fail.

My wife and I dined Saturday night. Great value BYO and very attentive staff. The duck dish superb and aptly titled "Lucky Duck" Pity I did not leave room for one the soft shell crab dishes. Will return soon.

Enjoyed our food here. A simple place with flavoursome food, we had a couple of fish fillet dishes and asked for a little extra spice. We got what we wanted with chopped chilli added to one of the dishes. Food servings were a large size and service was attentive on the quiet night week night that we dined there. Not... More

My first dining experience here with new Thai owners and staff. ESL is always an issue with multicultural Australia and poignant when ordering à la carte. Once past these communication challenges, the meals were really delicious, though service still has issues to resolve, hopefully with time and patience from customers. The enormous menu selection is perhaps overwhelming? Nice al fresco... More
