We got there, NYE, heaps of tables free, no "reserved" signs over any of them, we sat down and were told off by staff, saying they were fully booked for the night. Guess what? I called the phone from the outside and booked our table for 9:30pm. Got there at 9:10 and lots of tables available, and the lady had a yellow smile as nothing had happened. Food taste was not worth the value comparing to Brisbane's options. Lack of competition I suppose.

We went with anticipation of authentic Thai, but found the service a little slow and the quality of food not quite up to the usually excellent standard of real Thai people. Maybe we are a bit picky as we travel to Thailand a lot, but it seemed a bit more like Chinese to us.

The restaurant was very busy last night, we waited for a balcony table as it was far too hot inside.
We eat A LOT of Thai food so we know good and bad!
The Tom Kha soup was tasty, but certainly not traditional and lacking the coconut milk flavour that it should have. It was very nice, but not overly Thai.
The Penang Curry was also nice, a bit too watery, but overall fairly good.
Service was quite slow and Aussie waitresses a bit brash and bogan!
All in all a decent meal.

This place gives Thai food the WORST name. My bf and I thought we would try it because you can sit on the balcony overlooking the broad walk and the water. We should have left when we heard the two tables behind us talking about how terrible the food was, well they were right!! There was NOTHING Thai about the food. We made the connection that the restaurant is owned by the same CHINESE people who own the Chinese restaurant next door (same waitresses serving for both restaurants). The food is basically Chinese and so is the chef and when the people behind us complained the waitress said " You don't need to be Thai, to own a Thai restaurant". Personally i think in this case it would certainly help. There is nothing fresh about the food. It really was just Chinese food and the rice tasted like it had been heated up in the microwave. The beer was served warm. We LOVE Thai food and it is an insult to even be serving this type of food in a Thai labelled restaurant. The owners have just tried to bring more money in by having two supposedly different cuisines right next to each other.

DO NOT GO HERE.
