“Good food”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We went to Thai Carnation on Saturday (July 7) for dinner. Service was good. We ordered chilli basil chicken and cashew nut chicken with boiled rice. The serving was good. But the cashew nut chicken was a bit bland. This dish is usually adequately spicy.

Overall, we liked the food and would not mind going back again.

“Good food, well priced”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

I have had lunch here on a few occasions recently, service is prompt and friendly. Lunch price is well priced and a great feed!!! They are very quick to bring food out and the quality is fabulous, though on the heavy side!!
Food can be a little oily, but they are consistent and well worth a trip!

“A bit disappointing”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

The staff were friendly and the service was fast. However, our mains were slightly bland and my noodle dish was a bit gluggy. For the price we expected better.

“Best Penang in Town.”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

We go here about once a fortnight for lunch. The lunch specials are very well priced. I love the penang curry and have it usually with chicken but something with the prawns. It has a really nice flavor and a nice consistency. We alternate this with the Thai Beef Salad. The sauce is awesome. I think only once the beef was not as tender as usual but still really tasty. All lunch specials are served with rice. Nicely decorated though basic. Can get busy with workers at lunch time who pre book their meals. No real waiting time though. Friendly service. Highly recommended.

“Pretty Average”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

I came here with my girlfriends for a nice catchup. It was pretty quiet when we went and the wait wasnt too bad. It was overall a pretty average experience.
