“great Thai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

This is one of the best, if not the best, Thai restaurants in Sydney. Always a big queue so it is advisable to book. The regulars are mainly Thai which says a lot for the food. It is a BYO unlike its sister restaurant in Castlereagh Street ( where the food is also outstanding) so it makes this one better value.

“Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

The food was tasty. The place is cute but tight and busy. Service was ok- not great. Also had a little bit of a language barrier- my daughter ordered chicken Pad Thai and was talked into two skewers of chicken. Tried to understand if the chicken is ordered separately to no avail so we just went along and realized it was actually extra skewers of chicken as a starter even though we had already ordered and finished our starters...no big deal, it was tasty.

“Consistently good thai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

...No matter the hour of day nor crowd. With friendly helpful service too. This nicely outfitted branch is definitely our to-go place for Thai in Australia, especially for the sheer variety of dishes and desserts. The sangkaya dough fritters were a surprise delight!

“We've been regulars for 10 years!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

Having travelled extensively through Thailand over the past 24 years, we have a good grasp of what is good thai cuisine. This is very good. And we eat here at least once a fortnight. Love the desserts too.

“It's the real deal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

It was our daughter's inside knowledge as a Sydney resident that helped us find this restaurant. No booking system, just put your name down and wait for a table to become available which in our case was only a few minutes as we got in before the rush. It would have been worth waiting however long it took. Authentic Thai food in a great atmosphere with fantastic friendly service. The best ever Thai beef salad and the other dishes including Pad Thai were also delicious. We would definitely recommend.
