“Not as good as it used to be”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

We have eaten at Shelley's every time we have holidayed at Coolum (4 times in the last 18 months). First time in February 2012 the food was fantastic. Middle two were okay but nothing like the first time and this most recent visit the food was very average. We even threw out the left overs which we have never done with Thai food before! Try one of the other Thai restaurants.

“Up and down”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

You never know what you're going to get here. I have had fantastic meals at Shelley's, and very forgettable ones a s well. Of late, it seems to have gone off, though. Service also a bit up and down.

“Value for Money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Good friendly service and very tasty food. Other than they had run out of duck we had an enjoyable dinner with a mixed entrée and then shared a sizzle plate (which seriously sizzled) and a Massaman curry. Happy to recommend and we would return when next in Coolum.

“The best Thai meal we've had on ages!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

My husband and I decided last minute to try one of the local Thai restaurants in Coolum. We picked Shelley's and we were glad we did! The food was great (we shared a mixed starter, followed by steamed red curry with seafood and Shelley's Sizzling stir fry with chicken - which wasn't sizzling when it arrived at our table, but the flavours were still good). Our waitress was friendly and we found the prices reasonable. Will definitely be going back for more.
