Sometimes you just get lucky with amazing food been right at your door step. Try anything and you'll be happy. My personal favourite is the duck salad, the kids love the chicken satay and the Massaman (our test for a Thai take away) wins hands down.

We are lucky to have this Thai takeaway around the corner as the meals are magnificent. It has great value for money meals. The chicken ribs are to die for and the mains are fabulous. Nice customer service as at really busy times they will call you when your meal is ready to pick up. Definitely worth ordering. Do yourself... More

Just moved into the area and tried the takeaway. Were impressed, quality and flavours were great. A little more pricey than some (about $17 for a curry I think), but it was worth it. A local gem.

We have been meaning to write a review for a long time on Original Thai. Recently we had the special of the whole Barramundi and it was spectacular. It came with a chilli and tamarind sauce the was the right balance of heat and sweetness - it was like you were in Thailand.

We're fortunate to have some terrific Thai restaurants and takeaways around Bayside, but this fabulous place, tucked away in "the Golden Triangle" area of Cheltenham, is (in my humble opinion) the best without doubt. The red/green curry is always tasty, delicious and just the right level of spice. Both the Penang Curry and Red Ducky Curry are terrific. The Pad... More

My mum and I went for their Thai cooking classes and OMG it was sooo much fun and the food was delicious. The day was full of laughs and we learnt so much that we decided to create the same recipes for my grandpa's 70th birthday, our food was a hit!
