“Nice tasty food”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We bought some vouchers off Grabone for this restaurant. The food here is very tasty for us vegetarians. Of course, without the voucher I would say that it is possibly a bit pricey.

“Good value”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

8 of us went there for a meeting and then dinner. The waitress was very accommodating and gave us a room away from the rest of the diners so we could have our meeting. Very thoughtful. The menu has a huge variety of mains which are about $4 dearer than their take away menu. Very tasty food but not at all chilli hot but I suppose we could have asked for heat if we wished to. Good sized portions. Be aware that rice is $2 extra and you have to order it with most mains. More came around if we wanted it. Desserts are typically Thai and concentrated on fruit and/or ice cream concoctions. I have had better Thai but this will suit me and I shall return.

“Average food”
Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

After reading all the reviews for thai in the area, we went here and service is good.
Mixed thai starters were ok but not real thai and were more like Indian.
Chicken green curry was excellent, however pad thai and stir fly were not authentic although my husband enjoyed.
If you don't know thai food, then this place is acceptable but for thai experts like myself, then you will be disappointed.

“YUMMMMMMMMM!”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Friendly service, consistently tasty, well-prepared food is the reason why we return to Herbs & Spice Thai Restaurant time and time again. It is the best Thai restaurant in town and, even though it is hidden in a side street away from the main dining area and the interior is understated, we come back time and time again to enjoy what they have to offer.

Exactly what previous reviews promised. After eating in house we bought their special oyster & satay sauce to go.
