Choo Chee Goong is one of my favorite Thai dishes, this little restaurant serves one of the best you'll try, do yourself a favor, with many other great dishes on offer this is a great Thai experience

Went for lunch special on a week day. Waitress was arrogant, rude and extremely unfriendly. The food was ok so the kitchen staff are obviously real Thai. I for one will NOT recommend this restaurant and will not be returning if the service staff remains the same.

I went there with my friends after returning from Great Ocean Road. We thought of ordering dishes and steamed rice to share among us but end up we could only order individually. I ordered Pad Thai and my wife had Special Fried Rice. My pad Thai taste good but portion is small, however my wife's fried Rice had big portion... More

Was able to make a booking on short notice which was surprising considering the place was full all night. Great prompt and friendly service. The food was fantastic and fresh! The only thing we didn't like was that the table was quite small for 4 people and we had to juggle things around throughout the meal. Would highly recommend the... More

Had read recommendations for Green Chicken Curry so went with that and Barramundi dish. Both truly excellent. Along with entree, rice and roti we ordered too much so got the doggy... More

Family friendly Thai food feast for the whole family. Green curry chicken was great, the chicken skewers are a favourite with the kids. The stir fry with veg and cashews was sublime. Nice fried rice too. Great wine collection. Check it out now!!

A regular lunch spot for me and work colleagues. Advisable to book and order ahead if you're coming as a larger group or on a Friday. I had lunch here with a friend today, it was quite busy and when it is the service tends to be rushed and not as friendly! We ordered quite quickly, but then had to... More
