This is one of my favourite places to eat a laksa or green chicken curry. Food is always top notch and atmosphere is wonderful. Although, I have noticed lately the service hasn't been the best. lnattentive and uninterested staff - not sure if something has changed here recently?
Even after this is still come back because the food is too good.

We rocked up here on a Friday without a booking and the staff were great and accomodated us with a table for 5 after waiting 10 minutes. We ordered an assortment of entrees and mains. The satays have one of the best tasting peanut sauces I've tried in a long time. The lovely little pork ribs were a great tasting entree as well. The highlight of the mains was a great tasting beef rendang with thinly cut, beautifully tender strips of beef. We bought a couple of bottles of white wine which were rediculously overpriced and at the end of the meal with a bill over $260+ for 5 people it was a bit too steep.

Had a group booking. They were booked out, the staff was very attentive, food was ok, but a bit too expensive for the quality. The drinks are expensive as well.
I would not go back. I could get better and cheaper Thai food else where.

We returned to Tongue Thai'd this time taking visiting family along with us who were keen to try it after we raved about it to them! They wanted to try the aubergine and the chilli jam and the other wonderful things we told them it had to offer.

Well it was lovely, we were served by Matt, one of the owners, who was quick to recommend things to try things we hadn't before, and also to recommend wine pairings as well, which were very good.

The service wasn't as quick as it could be, drinks took a little while, but it was quite busy, as it always seems to be.

As we were nearing the end of our wonderful food, Matt came out with a beef in basil dish for us to 'try' it was lovely!

Once again Tongue Thai'd exceeded our expectations, and we even got some chilli jam to take home too!

Went here after enjoying a few bands at the Semaphore Music Festival - had heard of it before, but hadn't ever got the chance.

Was very impressed - they were busy but still v attentive to us and the food (we had ppl who were gluten free- wasn't a problem)

Wine list could be expanded, but the food is why you go, and it was amazing! Had a friend who'd just come back from Thailand and they raved that they couldn't tell the difference! Fantastic - will be back, esp if there's great weather and you can stroll down the street to get ice-cream too :)
