Ordered take away Thai from here tonight and it was delicious.. both my partner & I said it reminded us of the food we ate on a recent trip to Thailand so to say it's authentic is an understatement !! Highly recommend.

Rated as 2nd best in Australia. ..well, let me disaffirm the myth. A special dinner with my girls.....wine list abysmal, a simple lime and tonic was waited upon until they went and bought limes. ....no limes in a Thai restaurant! Flavour of lamb was unrecognisable and they admitted it tasted strange but still served it.....the prawns were frozen mush. It... More

Booked a table via the internet an hour prior to going - even had a choice of times to choose from. They were fully booked when we got there (even though the internet had let us book), however they set up a table for us which we really appreciated. The food was great and the service was fast and friendly.... More

Was staying at the Rumba Resort and decided to have Thai. After reading the reviews we decided to head up. And OMG! This is the best Thai food we have ever tasted. I went for their specialty slow cooked lamb (15 hours slow cooked) in red sauce - I could not believe the flavour that was exploding in my mouth!... More

Ordered take away via the internet. Was very quick. The pad thai was amaizing! The garlic and pepper chicken had a very strong marinade which was nice but slightly over powering. Overall though was very good and I would definitely go back.

I went back to this great Thai restaurant on Sunday night. The food was amazing as always. This time I noticed that they have a note on their drinks menu to say that they are keeping prices honest. They certainly have managed to do that! My partner and I had a bottle of red wine, 2 main meals and shared... More

Previous meals at this restaurant have been delicious but our recent meal was very disappointing. The staff were distracted, focusing on their mobile phones rather than on customer service. The soup was delicious but both main meals were average. There was little duck in the duck curry ( a lot of skin though) and the steamed seafood curry was dry... More

Good food and great online ordering tool which also gives a 10% discount. We had the Massaman beef curry and the Penang beef curry with rice. Both were very filling and very tasty. For a Monday the place was packed, apparently with a 21 st party. Definitely recommend.
