“Excellent thai, byo”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

The food was very nice. We went for valentine's night, it wasn't busy at all which is surprising given that the food is nice and not expensive (not cheap either). I guess it's because it's a BYO and the deco is nice but quite basic. Portions are large and the staff is polite.

“Great quality, excellent service and tasty meals”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

If you enjoy Thai food then this place is a must whilst in Canberra.

Enjoyed some lovely entrees to start with - Money Bags and Geow Tord. Super tasty with the dipping sauce they came served with. On-to mains, we enjoyed Pad Kratiem Prik Thai (Chicken) and Pad Nam Mun Hoy (Chicken). Both dishes came with rice and we were not disappointed. The meals were of great proportion... like share plates which was fantastic. The food was extremely delicious and there was silence whilst we just enjoyed the food. All the meals are MSG and preservatice free and are very light (so you don't leave feeling like you've put on kilos and a food baby). Again another lovely touch.

It left us with no room for dessert and the bill was extremely affordable... for two people $40! We will definitely be back. Love the Thai from Alice Thai Restaurant.

If you are looking to come here, I suggest you park in the Canberra Centre and walk across. That way you don't struggle to find a street park (which is diifiult in the city centre).

We will be back!

“Great food and service”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

Ate here the other night - we are off to Thailand in October we wanted our son to have a bit of a taste before we go. We were not disappointed.

Great food, very fast service (although we were the only people in) and good value, $76 for 3 entrees (2 seafood) and 3 Mains plus an OJ.

Thank-you - our son is now looking forward to eating in Thailand.

“Super friendly, delicious, fresh and very reasonably priced. ”
Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

Came here 30 minutes before closing and the lady in charge (Alice?) old us not to hurry, just relax that she and her husband were in no rush. She directed us across the street for BYO, it was just such an all together pleasant experience. Food was hot and delicious. Lots of choice on the menu. Lunch specials were great- I had the green curry, hubs had the bee and basil chilli stir fry and we shared a delicious bowl of tom kai gai soup with prawn. We were very glad to have stumbled upon this place.

“Great Service and Excellent Food”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Alice Thai is a favourite place for a quiet lunch or a quick bite to eat before a show. The food is first class and has plenty of flavour. The service matches the quality of the food.
