“At last - good food, good value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

We are a mature couple who got sick of low grade food and high prices.
We found a crowd in front of the restaurant - a good sign. Waiting time for a table was surprisingly short. The kitchen looked like organized, efficient chaos. The warm and loud atmosphere was welcoming and paradoxically relaxing. We ordered Vegetarian dumplings (very tasty), sea-food Pad Thai (great) and steamed whole Barramundi (divine). We couldn't help and had the sweet rice pudding dessert. The service was superb. All that totaled 97 AUD (including 1 bottle of Wine).
Thank you "Home"!

“Great Food, Great Value, Great Buzz”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

Home Thai was recommended by the front desk staff at my hotel. They told me I'd have to wait, but that the line would move quickly and that it would be worth it. They were correct on all three.

The wait to get a table was about 15 mins on a Tuesday night but the time passed quickly as you could watch the cooks preparing the food through the window.

The food was as good as any Thai I've eaten outside Thailand. The place was busy and buzzing with a lot of customers who looked to be students or young workers. I wouldn't pick Home Thai for a formal occasion or a business meal but for anything else, I'd go back in a heartbeat.

It's true they don't accept AMEX but at $42 for two mains and two starters, who cares?

“Best Thai Restaurant in Sydney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

OMG It's the most amazing thai restaurant in the city... If you don't have a reservation you'll have to wait a bit but is totally worth it. The people that work there are extremely nice. I'll definitely go back there.

“Good little restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Lots of local thais
NUMBER ONE FAUX PAS
No sign they dont take amex,
Every corp card is an AMEX
Idiots
Now there are two Homes
One is on Sussex the other is on liverpool ,I am told same owner in fact previously I have seen them run food between them.
Mr Home
Get on this planet
An extra 1 or two percent for an amex is fine when the Amex customers spend treble per head.

“I thought I knew Thai Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

San Francisco has lots of Thai restaurants, on all ends of the price scale. I thought I knew thai. Clearly I do not. This is the best Thai restaurant I've been to. It's busy, a little noisy, has lots of energy. A mixed crowd all taking it in and having a good time. Great food. Loved it and will go out of my way to go back. And not overly expensive. Good prices compared to other dinners in Australia.
