What a great restaurant. Not to be judged by its lookes as its just a very plain restaurant but the food is amazing. They have great thai dishes but also have a range of other meals as well to cater for all palets. Very well priced and very safe to eat at. this is a restaurant you will find lots of Aussies at as word of mouth its safe to eat at! Agree 100% Ate here several times! Try the spring rolls - delish!

Thanks for your kind comments. AS you say word of mouth,,,, People say to me when you feel safe with a place. Go with it, We do have a great Aussie following as well as the other down under places, SA and NZ.
During the high season December to April, so they say we are full with the europeans, all share the same great food and keep coming back. I hope the rest of your vacation was as good for you,

Have been to Sweet twice this trip. Food is generally fantastic. I haven't had any issues with my food and loved both the curry snd red chilli chicken dishes. On our first visit another table seemed to have an issue with their food, and it appeared to be easily resolved (unlike some restaurants that serve overcooked and sonetimes inedible foid that try to charge you twice for the same meal).

Our second visit while good wasn't as good, the service was much slower and lacked the professionalism of the first visit. I put that down to the owner not being there that night. Having said that it was far better than many restaurants we have eaten at this trip

Thankyou for your kind comments, Its easy to provide excellent taste with Thai Food, managing the level for the western taste is the interesting part. Our kitchen staff do wonders meeting everyones taste, Sometimes we do er with the level of spicy but a few minutes sorts that out, Our main difficulty is when a large group mixes western and Thai food, trying to get the food to all in a reasonable time is the challenge.

Ate here regularly when we travelled to Thailand in 2011
Great tasty food with lots of Thai and western options and cheap prices - would feed 2 adults and 3 hungry teenagers drinks and 2 courses for $30 - 40 AUS so we ate here often
Pad Thai was fabulous although the Thai Green Curry a bit hot

There is also a DVD shop in the back room of the Hello Kitty shop across the mall from this restaurant that we had been recommended to and they had a great range - none of the DVDs we bought there are dodgy either

Its nice to get feedback from family groups, The staff love the interaction with our customers especially the kids, They take it seriously to make sure their food is as spicy as they want, not blow your head off spicy, while looking after the experienced diners, Thanks for your comments, Wal

The best places to eat are often the best, and The Sweet was no exception!! We discovered The Sweet toward the end of our stay, so judged it on one meal - and what a meal!
I think "mine host" was mingling with the diners the night we went, making the visiting US navy guys feel at home - which was great to see.
I was hanging out for some "solid" Australian food - although The Sweet has a wide range of local Thai dishes - and tucked into the Mixed Grill. On the menu it's said to be a "big meal" - and it lived up to its name. Pork chop, lamb chop, sausage piled onto the plate, and inexpensive - in fact The Sweet was way cheaper than anything I could get at my local club.
My wife had the chicken schnitzel - and there was more than enough - add to that a Bacardi Breezer and Chang, and you have a great, filling meal for under $20AUD.
The place is clean, staff friendly (as are most Thais), and it was great. If you don't want to be pestered by street sellers, sit inside - but half the fun was sitting outside, enjoying the Patong experience!
I recommend The Sweet highly to lovers of food - and those yearning for a big meal. BBQ night is on Thursdays - it was a pity we went Friday!!

Thanks for your kind coments, My staff really appreciate the feedback. Most people judge us on our Thai food not the Western Menu. Its always good to get your meat fix at the same value as Thai food. I hope the rest of your vacation was enjoyable. Wal
