Wonderful thai flavours in all their dishes. Maybe a little pricey but very enjoyable
Recommend the thai fishcakes and the Lamb Shanks

“Best Thai in Melbourne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

Great authentic Thai dishes. Service was very good and ambience fabulous. Try some of the single serve meals if dining alone or two. For more guests, try the pulut panggang for entrée. The chilli fish was fresh and full of fragrant Thai spices. Will definitely return.

“Will be back Excellant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

I was told to go here several years ago and by chance strolling Lygon St chose to go in finally. What a fantastic meal. Great service - lovley wine recommended. We had a Green Curry and Masaman Lamb Shanks. Perfection. As were the entree we choose. The Masaman Lamb shanks were amazing. The decor is also authentic and the statues reminded me on time in Thailand.
I will be back next trip to Melbourne

“Frankly I don't know what the hype is about.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

Five adults dined on 4 August 2012. We were slightly late, not an issue. Meals were small . Pad curry cold. But the special grilled fish in banana leaves was indelible . Blackened , burnt tough. It was sent back. Alternative beef salad equally poor. Will not return

“Truly Authentic Thai on Lygon St”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

What a find this turned out to be, sadly we had been feasting on many culinary delights that Melbourne has to offer and particularly Lygon St and could only handle one dish each for dinner. We had a Phad Thai and a Green Curry, both rivalled any that I had enjoyed in Thailand. You will want to go here hungry to enjoy as much as possible. The prices are a little bit more than elsewhere but will certainly be worth it. They make their own pastes fresh and you will notice the difference from other Thai restaurants.

The decor is upscale and authentic. The staff are Thai and have the ever present Thai smile, friendly and professional service. I will certainly dine here again on future visits to Melbourne.
