“Thai Food at its Best”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The wonderful staff at Thai Nesia will always find us a table so I can tell you what a fabulous restaurant it is. Food with fresh and tantalising flavours is served with a smile in a comfortable setting. Our favourites include Crispy Salmon Salad with Thai Basils, Chilli Basil Duck and Fish with Green Mango Salad, when the latter's in season.

“My favourite Thai in Sydney”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

I'm currently holidaying in Thailand, busily writing restaurant reviews, when it dawned on me that I have never reviewed my favourite Thai at home!!

I have been eating at Thainesia for almost 10 years. To sum it up - delicious, quality (food and service), friendly, affordable. There are loads of regulars here - a sure sign of a great restaurant. The service is fantastic, both the waiters (who are all as camp as a row of tents) and waitresses (Hi June!). The food is the best and most affordable (at < $30 a main) 'Royal Thai' in Sydney. Highlights for me are the oysters (natural with tasty dressing), scallops in betel leaves, chilli basil duck, silken tofu with bean curd and the crying tiger (which is not always on the menu but always available if you should ask).

It's BYO (which means you cannot purchase alcohol there - you have to bring it ) but as there is a good bottleshop 2 doors down this is not a problem. Atmosphere is best downstairs rather than in the overflow room upstairs.

I unreservedly recommend this to anyone (locals or tourists) who want a delicious Thai meal in tasteful surroundings for a good price (in Sydney terms). It's a winner!!!

Always good, the money bags, satays, silken tofu with cashews, chu Che prawns, barossa chicken, delicious reasonably priced food, suggest you book. Great Thai, great atmosphere.

“Nice place for whenever you dont know where to go that night!”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

Good food, friendly staff and very noisy! It's always a good place where to start a night out but there are better places for thai in Sydney if that's what you are after

“Fantastic food!”

While on holiday we stayed in a hotel on oxford st and stumbled upon this wee gem.

I love thai and this was fantastic!

Staff friendly, slightly tired interior but the food made up for it!
