$64 for two mains and two cans of softdrink????? Absolutely crazy. The food is nice but not that nice. These people need to get a grip. No wonder the place was empty.

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.

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

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
