“Traditional Thai food in an A1 spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

There are more up market restaurants around Williamstown but for tasty Thai food at a reasonable price, BYO wine with good service you can't go past this Thai cafe

“Losing it's appeal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

This place once had the best food in Willi, not any more We were very disappointed with our meal. The tastes have been toned down catering for the western palate. Not spicy at all, the phad Thai noodles were especially bland. You could easily make a better curry at home.

get a table away from the door, it can get very breezy.
We also Tried take away and the results disappointing. We would recommend cooking at home.

“Excellent food and service - a winner every time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

I have been dining at this restaurant for 18 years and have never had a bad meal. I have sampled everything on the extensive menu and love it all. It's always packed, so I recommend that you book early. If you love authentic Thai fare, then this is the place for you.

“Noisy but tasty!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

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.

“Disappointing after what we had read”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2012

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!
