This is our second, and last, visit to our local Thai in Lonnie. The food was tasteless and extremely poor quality - frozen prawns, gristly meat with bone fragments. If you know your Thai like the January reviewer said, go somewhere else - this will not delight your tastebuds. Disappointed again!

The food quality is very average, much along the lines of takeaway food that has spent too long in a bay-mare. Food servings are small and expensive. It will not poison you but if you love Thai food stay away. Of Launceston's three very average Thai restaurants this is the worst. Imagine dropping into a supermarket and buying Australian frozen takes on Thai food and serving that up and you have the cuisine.

It is a shame that Launceston has not a decent Thai food place as it is my favourite cuisine. Suggest you try any of the Italian restaurants instead if looking at mid price range food. Else, if budget not an issue, check out the Black Cow. Otherwise, any hole in the wall offers the same food quality at a lower price.

Cheers

Can't remember what I ordered. It said hot on the menu and hot it was. Too hot for me. My wife however ordered the beef massaman curry. She absolutely loved it. She said she’d have the same thing again if she returned which she indeed did as she works around the corner and did go back with her colleagues.
This is a nice cozy restaurant with polite attentive staff. At the time of this writing the place hasn’t had any reviews which I find surprising as it does deserve more attention.
