“Best Thai food I've had in a long time”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

Having had a memorable experience dining here a few years ago (enjoying both the atmposphere and the food), we were determined to visit on our next Hunter Valley sojourn. Due to time contraints and the temptation of a $10 lunch special, we opted for take away during the week, ordering the spring rolls (not cheap at $9 for 4) which were delicious, fresh and worth the expense. Possibly the best spring rolls I've even had! We also ordered 2 x $10 lunch special chicken penang curries, and the flavours were fantastic. Definately some of the best Thai I've eaten in a long time, and service was very fast (though we did appear to be the only customers on a rainy, miserable day mid-week).
To dine in, the entrees and mains are not cheap, but then again, not much in the Hunter Valley region is! To sum it up, fantastic flavours, fresh food, definately worth visiting.

“Best Chicken Satay ever had”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

A group of 9 recently dined here for lunch - we had a set menu banquet - the food was amazing - Patrick, the Manager, was very accommodating with organising our reservation prior to our Hunter Valley trip and allowed us to have our own set banquet - we had curry puffs, chicken satay and spring rolls as our starter - then for our mains we had stir fried chicken with cashews, a beef massaman that melted in your mouth and Thai seafood fried rice - they have a great range of beers and wines and the restaurant has a modern Asian decor - the waitress we had was Thai and very sweet. We all walked away raving about out meal and were still talking about the food days later.
