We should have realised not to expect fine cuisine when we were led to a table directly underneath a huge TV .. Which yes was on ! So the ambiance factor was zero . What about the service ? Well we had to ask for water ...Which wasn't replaced ,you had to guard your cutlery with your life ,because once... More

We had our meal delivered to our Hotel room which was delivered within the given timeframe by a friendly gentleman. We were delighted with our choice of restaurant to provide our meal as the food was excellent. Our meal was Chicken Satay Sticks and Sweet Potato Curry Chicken with steamed rice which was more than enough for 2 adults. Delicious... More

We went to this restaurant by chance and I am so glad we did. We always can rate a Thai restaurant by their coconut prawns and this restaurant delivers the best most tasty coconut prawns ever. This was followed by the duck salad which was delicious with the duck being quite lean and very tasty. The seafood in young coconut... More

Have been here quite a few times when we have travelled to Wollongong and enjoyed the food. Not quite sure what happened today. The service was almost non-existent and the food quite ordinary. Think we need to try another place in Wollongong on our next visit.

I have visited the restaurant twice in the last month. Overwhelmed by the authenticity and delicious taste of food. But the service was not top notch as in both the situations, our customised orders were not given any heed.

We live on the South Coast and our favourite restaurant in Wollongong is "Thai Carnation". It has a lovely atmosphere, the staff are very attentive and the food is always delicious. We have never had a bad meal there. We especially enjoy sitting by the window, watching the world go by as we eat heavenly Thai food.

I came here recently for a dinner with my close friends for my 21st birthday and it was an awesome night! Every staff member I spoke to over the phone and in person were really helpful and accommodating to making the dinner run as smoothly as possible. I made sure to pre-order the food I wanted as I ordered a... More

Thai Carnation has been a favourite of mine for my 5 years living in Wollongong. The food is delicious and they are generous with extra spice if you ask for it. I highly recommend dining in. The atmosphere is always good and the food is presented well. However, I don't rate their take away as highly. Somehow, whenever I pick... More

I have dinner here at least once a fortnight and it's amazing every time! We always get the Panang Curry and Pad Se Ew both with vegetables and tofu - perfection! The portion sizes are good and the prices are really reasonable! The menu is very accessible being that I'm vegetarian and I feel like I can order a lot... More
