“Excellent Food”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

I was interested to read the review from 1mightmouse - maybe a bad night or something??
This was the first time I have been here and I love good thai food. As I am an Entertainment Book member, this restaurant was a newly featured restaurant. We asked to taste the wine first, which the waiter gave us effortlessly, he told us it sells well, tried it and bought a couple of glasses. Food - we ordered Miang Hoy (scallops in betel leaves), & Lon Moo (pork mince in coconut milk& peanut sauce), it was cooked beautifully and full of flavour. Mains we ordered a beef green curry & chicken stir fry with steamed rice. Rice was light & fluffy, chicken dish was the right amount of chilli and curry (according to my husband) was beautiful. We could not fault the food and will definitely be going back, but this time we will be taking some friends. My only gripe is that it was a bit cold. We did ask for the air-conditioning to be turned up which they did. I would recommend, but bring a jacket

“food catered for aussie taste buds”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

receiving 50% special on food deal, we arrived with big expectations having read reviews on its authentic fine thai cuisine. firstly, we found the restaurant did not have adequate heating, secondly, there was not enough staff to cater to a busy night, thirdly, the green paw paw salad on special was more grated carrot than green paw paw accompanied by syrupy dressing (however, the soft shell crab tempura served with the salad was so good, we ordered a platter of it), fourthly, although the duck curry was cooked to perfection again it was too sweet and lastly, so was the coconut rice.

please, thai restaurants - it would be so fantastic if you would stop putting sugar in your dishes!
