Most Westerners obviously rave about this place, my mum would love it! But.. If you like REAL Thai food, with spice and heat that challenges you're tastebuds, don't bother! The Isaan Som tum was not too bad, but every other dish we had tasted toooooo sweet and had no chilli heat at all, very Chinese tasting Thai. Note to chef...When... More

We had visited this restaurant on previous visits and it was, in fact, one of the reasons for choosing accomodation in this proximity. The food was as lovely as we had remembered. The choice is extensive and we have not yet had a dish which we have not enjoyed. Staff are friendly and helpful. BYO is allowed and overall it... More

After visiting here 5 years ago, I raved to my family about the food and service. Finally we took a family trip to the Gold Coast and this was the first restaurant we booked into. Amazing service, delicious food, friendly staff and we didnt have to wait long for our meals, which is great when dining with 3 children! The... More

Great atmosphere, inside is best although heaters set up outside for late comers. The food tasted excellent and the service was very good. Would definitely return.

Food is amazing and the customer service is great! We had a table of 10 and staff had such patience with us making complicated orders. If you are the kind of person who is always cold, like myself, I would recommend sitting inside during winter as it can be very windy and cold.

We found this restaurant right here on Trip Advisor and were pleasantly surprised. What an amazing restaurant with not only great food but the atmosphere and surrounds was a show in itself. We were shown to our seats which were actually all carved out of wood into the shape of elephants! So so good. The food was fresh and very... More

We went twice tho this restaurant and enjoyed it both times - a wonderful duck dish and coconut prawns really hit the spot! Staff were most attentive and the decor is amazing - we sat in beautiful wooden chairs carved into elephants.
