Real average - as I say - Simple Home Invented Thai (work the acronym) - and so disappointing. Asked for some heat - i.e. like you get with Thai food - complete let down. The Penang curry was atrocious - I could buy a Penang paste from the supermarket and do better - seriously. Thai food is the new Chinese... More

I've been eating take away Thai in Sydney for many years but this is my go-to place. The meals are always clean, fresh and not oily like some Thai, and the service is really fast. I have eaten in as well which was also a great experience. This place has been in the same location for over twenty years which... More

Really great food and a reasonable price too. Promised to take my sister out to the local thai here in Dee Why. She had walked past questioning my choice of venue, given that during the day this restaurant is empty. At night, it comes alive. All tables full at 7.15pm on Friday. Thankfully booked. Amazing views and well the food... More

The efficiency of the staff, despite a massive New Year's eve crowd of dine-ins and take-outs, was simply amazing. The quality of the food was as amazing as ever. Prices reasonable, and well worth a re-visit on a quieter night.

We were tired and hungry when we arrived and ordered only 2 items but they were both the best Thai food we ever ate . Crispy double cooked pork and chinese broccoli and a thai beef salad and rice .The fresh herbs and flavourful dressings made us want to eat here every night of our stay.

We had the chicken pad thai and cream basil chicken. Best we've ever had. Service was also very good. Great view of Dee Why beach. Then off to walk the beach. Great date night.

The tradicional Thai food is tasting for a fair price. The management needs just training the staff, they are not very friendly.

If you like Thai food this is the place. I have tasted lot of Thai food but this blew me away. Everything so so fresh. Staff were really wonderful even under pressure. This restaurant is always busy but nothing is ever a problem. I saw a lot of people taking their own drink but we drank from the wine list.... More
