“Disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

On arrival we were told that kitchn was about to close, hurry and order, we waited 7 minutes for them to take order after asking twice for menus. Should have known better, as no XXXX Gold beer only hahn, coopers and cascade, which is a good indication of suspect eatery.
Chicken satays arrive 2 minutes after order, they were microwaved, tough, chewy, nice peanut sauce on bread? We were hungry, ate and shut up.
Beef randang looked and smelt great. Suspect though as it arrived 10 seconds after satay's were whisked away.
Microwaved, Tough, chewy and tasted like slop.
What a shame, we went there after reading good reviews.
It reinforces my opinion that all thai food in Australia is manufactured in a central kitchen somewhere and shipped to thai restaurants in drums, to microwave?
Will try steak tonite

Hi, Thank you for you review. And sorry that you are disappointing in our restaurant. I do remember both of you on that night. There are few points that not quite a facts in your review. First, we already closed when you arrived we are just try to be helpful by not letting you leave with empty stomach (which I regret right now). Second, we are not a bottle shop we definitely can not carry every brand of beer under the sun in our restaurant and XXX Gold is more like pub beer not quite a restaurant style that is why we do not carry them. We do offer quite a few varieties you can choose which you mentioned. Third, chicken satay is grilled you can tell that can you? I am not aware of any microwave that can do grilling? Perhaps you should make sure you know what you are talking about before make it public. As for beef randang it is reheated in a pot and it was slow cooked for more than three hours if you still think its tough you must be the only one as no body else seems to share you view. As for a speed of the food you get your food fast because you are the LAST customers we want to clean up and go home so we hurry it for you and you said waited 7 minutes to take an order I really doubt that, Granted that only one waiter left at the time it may take few minutes but seven? don't think so. Anyway, lesson learnt, don't take in customers after kitchen closed. Thanks again for your review.

“Love it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

Still hands down the best thai in town. Its a must do every time we home back to the mount. Had a family dinner there last week before we got married. No complaints from any of the 10 family members. Great value, the food was fantastic. Staff were attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Love this place

“exquisit cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

You would hardly think that behind that door an exquisite dish will be served. I can recommand anyone who is traveling throughout south australia to make at least the detour, even if it takes 100 km, because it is worthwhile. I have been around places and nowhere I have eaten better than there.
Not only the food is perfect cooked but the staff is nice and friendly. The inside of the restaurant is good-looking, only at the outside there is nothing inviting about the place which is a pity.
