Went there last night with family and friend. The restaurant has a nice look and atmosphere. Nothing worse than noisy places where you cant talk to each other. The waitress that served us was very friendly and polite. Our food was prepared in reasonable time too which was great becasue we were very hungry. The best meals were Pad Thai... More

Piyada is not a stereotyped Thai restaurant. It is a bit quirky and a busy spot, The food was excellent, although the hard working staff had difficulty coping with their workload - more waiting staff needed

Myself and my lovely girlfriend came here and loved the atmosphere. The food was near perfect and served very quickly. We took our time and watched as people came and went satisfied and of course happy. Would recommend this to anyone. Very pleasant staff and everyone was smiling in this place... Fantastic ....Thankyou for the experience.

Our visit to Piyada Thai was a reasonable experience. Service was polite and quick, started with spring rolls and curry puffs, rolls where average and the curry puffs needed more zing. Had Mussaman curry with beef (Lamb not on menu). Was ok but seemed to lack something. Stir fried chicken with ginger was superb. The par of us where hungry... More

Food is ok. Service is swift but definately don't take your children! We were in and out within 45 minutes. When we are paying $100 for dinner, we don't want to be rushed and we definately don't want mains on the table when we are still eating entree. I have tried going with friends and no kids but even then... More

This is the best Thai restaurant I have found throughout all my travels in Aus! We used to eat here once a week when i lived in Melbourne and have not been able to find a place that competes on flavor and price. The panang curry is easily my favourite!!

Being a lover of Thai food , I'll jump at any chance to eat it, This is a tiny and unassuming restaurant tucked away on a service road , decor is a bit dated, maybe a little cramped, BUT.... the food and service made up for it, good sized helpings and very authentic, will give it another go when i'm...

Our family was the first customers of Piyada way back when & it set a good standard right from the beginning. Its menu & service have remained great for years. As in my title, this is a local favourite & we love it.
