The friendly staff couldn't do enough for me. Love Thai food and this restaurant didn't let me down. So much so that I ate here for two days in a row. Both meals were delicious and fresh.. Well done.

Quite clearly the advertise as been Thai food, having very little knowledge of how to cook. The beef currrys was a watery tasteless, with tiny slivers of beef and no vegs apart from pattatos and whole peanuts! Just yuck. The chicken curry very similar! Dry revolting chicken skewers, with a teaspoon of revolting peanut sauce! Roti bread raw in the... More

It was a horrible experience. The meal came with almost no meats in it, just big pile of rice. When asking staff to check if this is how it's supposed to be, they didn't even check and just returned the meal to me. It was $15 dish and definitely better spent in other restaurants for the same price. Highly NOT... More

Love this little place. Non descript little restaurant on Elizabeth Street deserved a return visit. I dined there with a good friend a few months back and loved it. This time, the son and I ate lunch there before he headed off to the airport. We ordered satay chicken skewers for entree and a red and green prawn curry for... More

Delivery was fast and efficient through menulog, however, the food was not really to our liking this time. There is a strong taste of baking soda in my stir fried beef dish and my friend's curry was made too spicy even though he asked for mild. My friend frequently orders from them and thus knows how spicy mild would be.... More

I had the yellow curry and the spring rolls. While the spring rolls were not the best I've ever had, the curry was really tasteful!! Morever it was quite a big serving, so if you're hungry and keen on Thai cuisine, I would recommend this place. It was fast to order and get the meal.

I had the Massaman Prawn Curry and Coconut Rice. Great food. The staff were friendly and the service was good. The menu here is keenly priced. A short walk from Melbourne Central.

Good Thai food in a cheap setting. A good variety of choices. Nearly all dishes are offered as vegetarian. Cash only...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
