Could not fault the food. Every dish was amazing. Very popular place, with all tables full, even on a Tuesday night. The staff were first class. BYOB a bonus too!

This was our first visit to Thai Pothong and we would definitely go back. The food was great, service very good. They really made you feel welcome. The only downside is that it was very noisy especially being a Friday night with a full restaurant

Incredible food - fantastic efficiency and friendly service. Thai Potong is the best Thai in Sydney; possibly in Australia. Blows you away every time with the authenticity of the food. We will go back again and again.
