“Amazing Thai Food at a Great Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

Amazing food. High Quality, spend just under $100 for about 7 plates of food to share with a family of 5 and we don't even finish it all. Know the owner and he definitely looks after his customers, which makes the experience even better. It is a little bit small inside very squishy. Definately get the coconut rice to die for :)

“Amazing Thai Cuisine & Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

This place is a little hidden restaurant with wow factor. Front the front it gives the impression of a take away place. However once you take that first step inside, you are greeted by a welcoming host and atmosphere of authentic Thailand. The menu is fantastic with great choices of pork, beef, chicken, seafood and so many ways of presenting. Noodles, laksa, rices etc. The price range is also great and being byo, well that's just an added bonus. The staff were wonderful. The only negative was that we all felt a little hot as the air-conditioner was struggling to keep the restaurant cool. We look forward to returning for another wonderful family night out when the weather gets a bit cooler.

“Authentic Thai Food with a great host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

Food is great and this restaurant is patronised by locals as it is a little out of the main area of Cairns tourist strip. Great Thai food, and a wide ranging menu to suit all tastes. Not a glamorous atmosphere, but very traditionally Thai which is what gives it a real taste of Thailand's charm. The owner is so friendly and helpful and the staff are friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The prices are excellent for the quality and quantity of the food you receive. The restaurant is extremely popular especially Friday/Saturday nights and booking are highly recommended. This is a BYO restaurant. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant for a true taste of Thai, excellent service and great prices. We had more than enough food, and left some as we could not eat it all, and it all came in at around $22 a head. Try it if you want to experience authentic Thai at its best!

“Thai Coins Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

Joel and the team do a fantastic job in this lovely little restaurant. Food is always great, the staff are friendly and being locals we do get acknowledged and looked after. But so does everyone in this restaurant. Great Thai Food and a very well priced restaurant also. We come as often as we can.
