I'm very picky about pad thai which is what I ordered. It's not served in the traditional style, it didn't come with lime and there was broccoli and cauliflower in it. Was a nice stir fry dish but not pad thai. The waitress also got my order wrong. It wasn't bad but it wasn't memorable either

This place is usually booked out on a Friday night, so make sure you make a reservation.

We sat outside and as the evening was cool, we asked if the heaters could be turned on. Unfortunately the waitress was unable to do this, and instead put down the plastic side awnings, which made it only a smidgeon warmer.

The food was flavoursome, but unfortunately when it reached the table, was at room temperature.

The restaurant is BYO but charges $3 for corkage.

Reasonable thai, but service could be improved.

The food here is as stated very average. It lacks flavour & punch. I love Thai food but I didn't like the food offered here. I like my Thai food hot & spicy as it is mostly served in Thailand but I'm afraid the food here is a very bland, tasteless example of Thai food.
On my last visit (went with friends at their request) I ordered my food very hot & spicy. When it arrived it was neither of these, I told the waitress that the food wasn't hot or at all spicy, she tok it away & said she would make it spicier. When my food was returned all that had been added was chilli powder & it still wasn't hot or spicy, there was not a single piece of fresh chilli in any of the dishes we ordered & all agreed we would not be returning. The food is obviously not prepared fresh here & I'd say is best avoided if you want good Thai food.

We have been here 3 times in the past 7 months. On each occasion the food was nice. I really enjoyed it and I'm not a lover of Thai food more generally.
I did find the service slow though, we had to ask for a drink order to be taken and then waited another 20 minutes to be served. More irritating when a part of 6 arrived and got served before us... It's local and nice but not overwhelming

Had read good reviews about this place so thought u would give it a go. Found it to be average. Food was good but service was fairly poor. Took a few attempts to get our drinks and was waiting a while for them to take our food order. Food came out in a reasonable time and wasn't too bad but not spectacular either
