“great food - careful what you order if you don't like it hot”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

I've been here a few times and love it. The food is always fresh, the flavours always interesting.

On our last visit, I ordered a green papaya salad which I could eat with rice but it was so hot it gave my wife an out of body experience. If you don't like hot food, just check with the waiter but you should still go.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

This is really two restaurants. Upstairs is the more casual section. Downstairs if the fine dining. Have eaten at each a couple of times, but the downstairs one really shines with superb food, very attentive staff. The room is a little loud, but the whole experience is reliably excellent. Highly recommended.

“Excellent Thai Food at the Rocks”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We found the thai food in Australia the most reliable and always excellent. This restaurant is small but located at the Rocks its excellent for walks before and after. Shops or the Bridge Walk in the Rocks area, or after head to the Sydney Opera House Bar for a drink and excellent views.

“Consistently Wonderful”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

This restaurant is as great now as it was three years ago. Patrons are warmly welcomed, and served in a professional manner. The food is delicious! The clientele , on the two occasions that we dined there a few weeks ago, was a wonderful mix of tourists and locals. A must dining experience when in Sydney!

“Tasty thai”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

We went to this restaurant the first night we arrived and the last night before we left. It is very convenient to the Four Seasons and offers a good menu. We really enjoyed the green curry beef and pad thai. The portions are large so I would recommend sharing.
