This restaurant is located in Hardware Lane. We ordered the mixed entree and a red duck curry and a green chicken curry. The food was a good size and very enjoyable.

The only thing that can be off putting all the restaurateurs trying to convince you to come into their restaurant, they are quite pushy. I dont like to be hastled when i am hungry and looking for somewhere to relax and have dinner. So if you tell then that you are eating at Aloi Na Thai then they might leave you alone. Good luck and happy eating.

The steak I ordered turned out to be two steaks! It was delicious, the service was fast and friendly, and I had no problem getting a table on a Friday night with no reservation.

Walking through Hardware Lane is so in your face, so be prepared! The lady at the menu board of this restaurant was friendly, not pushy and knew the menu. The wait staff were efficient, attentive and made good food and wine suggestions. The food came out quickly and was delicious. My partner and I eat a fair amount of Asian and are always looking for somewhere new to eat that tastes great, has a good variety and is reasonably priced, this restaurant fit the bill. We had an entrée, main and a drink each that came to $50. We'll definitely eat here again and enjoy not only the food but also the ambiance that is Hardware Lane.

Got a table outside in the buzzing laneway on a Friday night, the outdoor heaters kept us warm. Great atmosphere, though was slightly disappointed with the food. The chicken satay to start was good, though the seafood tom yum soup with noodles and the other thai dish were sweetened far too much, making it more appealing to the masses, which spoilt the balance of flavours. There was hardly any seafood in my soup, though lots of fresh vegetables. The whole snapper was fresh and delicious, though again, the sauce was far too sweet. It was okay, but I wouldn't go here again especially if you enjoy authentic Thai food. If it's atmosphere and the setting you're after, Hardware lane has it, but there are plenty of other restaurants up and down to choose from.

Our meal was excellent with free drinks. We sat outside where staff seem to hover so no problem with the service. It is more expensive than your average suburban Thai but better than other Hardware Lane restaurants.
