“Quality Thai”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Better than the typical cheap Thai that prolifereates in the area - quality of produce and more distinctive spice character. Some dishes are more suited than others but this becomes more evident after you have been here a few times.

“Great Thai on the North Shore - especially the entrees”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Really enjoyed our meal at Tapioca!

It was a family celebration and the first time any of us had been, but Tapioca had come highly recommended from some family friends. We now can see why!

We were there on a Tuesday night so it was pretty quiet - just us and one to two other tables there. I saw some other reviews saying it was really noisy but this certainly wasn't the case for us.

Friendly staff, nice décor, and hooray! It's BYO! (as well as licensed).

The entrees especially were to die for - we loved the chicken dumplings and "prawn mince wrapped in egg noodle' - just delicious! There was also something akin to money bags (but much fancier and more delicious) which went down a real treat.

The wagyu beef curry was also a highlight - melt in your mouth!

Pad Thai was nice, but exactly what you would expect from any Thai eatery - I'd suggest branching out and trying something else instead.

We will be back!

Be warned - the menu on their website is not 100% accurate, or has been updated, so don't get your heart set on something you see online.

“Delicious modern Thai - beautifully presented dishes full of exquisite flavour.”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Hidden gem on Military road. From the outside wouldn't have picked it as Thai. Reviews in newspaper posted in the window were spot on - excellent modern Thai cuisine. The dumplings were an art form in themselves. Scallops full of flavour. Mains were delicious too. A little more expensive than usual Thai but well worth it.

“Wow! It was like being at my favourite resort in Thailand”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

We tried it with a friend based on having heard it had gluten free options. It did, lots.

The lightness, taste, texture and service was just like being in our favourite Thai resort. The restaurant was spacious and not dominated by the traffic noise from outside.

Even the tofu was wonderful, stir fried with a variety of mushrooms.

It is not so much your average Thai restaurant in Sydney but a much more tasty and enjoyable experience.

We will go back.
