We came on a week night and it was almost full but we managed a table. A great menu, we chose quickly and didn't have to wait long for the food to arrive despite the restaurant being full. It's not the place for a romantic meal as it has little ambience and very echo-y - you could hear many conversations as well as clanging in the kitchen. But if its a quick, tasty meal you are after then you are in the right place. They don't serve spirits, though, so it was lemon, lime and bitters for us which came in small bottles. Under $50 for a meal out for two in the beautiful seaport of Williamstown.

We had read good reviews, and also had personal recommendations for this place. Our experience was somewhat different. The food was average and the place was very crowded and not comfortable. We waited ages for our meal to the point where we actually nearly got up and walked out.

For Thai in that part of the city, you cannot go past Fresh Chilli in Laverton, and there is also one opened now in Wyndham Vale outside of Werribee. The Laverton one is in the middle of a shopping strip however is packed every night and the food is outstanding, and good value for money!

Sadly I was left very disapointed by my visit to this much loved restaurant. We are not really fussy people and its rare that we walk away feeling let down - but we did.

We went for our Anniversary dinner - really we should have stuck with our favorite Thai restaurant in Laverton - Fresh Chilli is far better.

We started with crispy corn fritters and the steeet style her patties - the patties were Ok but the crisy corn fritters were pretty much a deep friend ball of batter and tasted like a chicco roll.

We then had tamarind prawns and the seafood sizzle plater.

The prawns had no taste and were really watery - like they have come from the freezer and then deep fried.

The sizzle plate was Ok, but there was not much of it.

No spirits are served but the wine list is Ok.

Really disapointed, if you want a good Thai meal head up the road to Laverton.

We were visiting Williamstown and went to this restaurant (without knowing anything about it). It was the best decision of the evening! The food was authentic and delicious. Staff was very friendly and efficient. If you want to have great Thai food this is the place to go!
