Food was very flavorsome yet the incense was intensely over powering through out the entire restaurant.

Thankyou for your positive comments on our food. I'm sorry you couldn't bring to our attention at the time of dining about the incense rather than posting online as it would have given us an opportunity to correct this on the night. Chris More

Dined here due solely to the positive reviews. I have never been served Pad Thai with cabbage in it and Pad Thai has tofu somewhere in amongst the noodles, doesn't it?? Nothing to rave about at all. In fact, I wont go back.

Thankyou for your comment. There was a Tofu option in the menu, perhaps you missed it. At in2thai if anyone is unhappy with any of our meals then why not bring it to our attention as you would have received a refund....but no, you were too quick to jump online instead. Thank You More

We look forward to eating here or grabbing take away when we get to Cairns, it's always delicious, vibrant and fresh. It's away from the hustle and bustle downtown so it's always easy to park close. Looking forward to trying a whole barramundi!

Brillant eating experience. Owner and Chef both happy to chat, answer food questions. Good vegie options on menu. The fried whole barramundi was delicious and presented wonderfully, recommend it! Very nice set up inside even though on a busy road, a delicious oasis

Tried this very nice & 'homey' restaurant with friends; service was great and very authentic Thai food; the sweet n sour fried fish was the highlight dish. The ginger & lemongrass drink was beautiful & refreshing to drink. A must to try.

First thing I noticed on entering In2thai was the traditional decor - just beautiful. We didn't have a dinner reservation but the staff were just so welcoming...and that's even before we looked at the menu. A great veriety of dishes on offer it was hard to choose. Had chicken pad thai, pad khing and a red curry. Good size servings... More
