Took my daughter here last week for her birthday. We had entrees, Thai Seafood Salad, Thai fried rice with seafood, Massaman Beef Curry. The food was delicious. Absolutely. And I am fussy, very fussy. Nice setting. Parking at rear. The staff were lovely. It is not licensed but there is a bottle shop two door's down.

Great takeaway option for Ormeau residents. Always consistently fresh and tasty. Nice environment for dining in also. The waitresses are absolutely lovely and go out of their way to make you feel welcome.

Visited this lovely little restaurant today for dine in. Portions were of lunch size ( good) Fantastic prices $11.90 all dishes. Food was delicious it did take a little time to get our meals which could be an issue if you were on a timed lunch break. Food was exceptional and fresh as, service was very friendly.

Have eaten in and ordered takeaway and each time the food has been outstanding. The prices are mid-range, there are definitely more expensive thai places on the Gold Coast, and for the quality of food I definitely think it's worth it. As soon as I mentioned i was going there, 3 of my friends started raving about how much they... More

My husband and I have been going to this restaurant since we moved to the area 8 years ago. Sometimes we dine in, sometimes we order take away. We have never been disappointed, even when we have ordered 'something not on the menu' to satisfy our kids. The food I'd fresh and full of flavour, and I love that the... More

Just had a takeaway from here for the first time in a year or so. My wife loves Thai food but I can take it or leave it. My wife had a green chicken curry which she enjoyed. I ordered the chicken in oyster sauce. Sauce was very watery just tasting of soy. None of the sauce coated the food.... More

It doesn't matter whether you eat in or order take away what you order it is always of an excellent standard with generous portions offered. If you don't live in the Ormeau area and you really...

Been going to this restaurant since it opened years ago & it is always consistently good. We tend to dine in during the week as weekends are very busy & a bit loud. Definitely one of the best Thai places on the Gold Coast!

As the price you might expect the meal comes with better ingredients. Unfortunately curry was very salty and everything came in very tiny quantity. I only remember eatting plenty of sauce than actual food. Tom yum only one prawn and 2/4 of cup mushrooms. Vege curry only with 4 little piece of tofu and few extremely tiny cauliflower and few...
