We ordered the prawns with basil and chilies, pad Thai and for dessert we both had deep fried ice creams. The prawns dish was nice and spicy, just the way we like our Thai food. The pad Thai was quite sweet and tasted more like stir fried noodles and the deep fried ice creams tasted average. Overall the food tasted average, however overpriced to the point we felt the need to finish everything we ordered. We will probably travel further to find better Asian food next time.

Arrived at Spicy Thai in anticipation of beautiful Thai experience. Unfortunately it was ordinary in the sense of we were seated at plastic tables with no cloth or plates. Place mates and plates did come but we could hardly talk to each other for the noise of the bull frog in the pond below us who sang to us all night. Food was reasonably fast coming, but was very strongly soy flavoured (all dishes). Nothing special for the $133 for three people. Would recommend elsewhere.

This thai place was ok for dinner but was a little on the expensive side for main meals. We shared some entrees only, but the presentation of them was fantastic which explains the price. The staff were friendly and welcoming.

We ventured here as we had friends close by and our accommodation was also nearby. There were 4adults and a two yo who went in and we settled in to an empty restaurant which stayed that way all night.......we now understand why.
The staff were rude and seemed to be in a hurry to move us on rather than service the only eat in customer they had all night. Whilst all enjoyed their meals $27-34 for Thai food is over priced in every aspect and the meals were OK at best but the most disappointing aspect was we did not feel welcome or comfortable in the environment. We believe they have two but this is not their flagship and whilst it is only 30m from our hotel the main st area has plenty more to offer and with far friendlier staff.......we would never return.

Went there on a Sunday night, it was quiet with nice views. Food came out quickly and was very tasty. We had no problems at all with this restaurant.
