“Great Thai place”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

I have been to many Thai places around the world and this one is definitely one of the best I've been to. Everything I ordered (spring rolls, fish platter, sweet and sour king klip) was very tasty and their peanut sauce is fantastic! My order took a little longer but the food was well worth the wait. I will definitely visit this place again next time I'm in Johannesburg.

“Nice Time”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

I have eaten there about three times and every time i was served good food with a smiling staff.
I always enjoy myself when i go there and it is a place i recommend to my friends when we go to Monte Casino.
The prices aren't cheap but they are very far from being expansive.

“Thai food at its best”
Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

Excellent Thai food, from starters to desserts. The decor is very authentic and the calmness of Thailand is definetly present here. The service is good but the food is fantastic. The menu is diverse and for someone who has visited Thailand many times I am very happy to eat here and recommend this to first timers. Kapounkaap

“The best Thai food in South Africa”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Definitely the best Thai food in South Africa, with a great atmosphere to compliment the food. Personally i enjoy the original one at Olivedale the best.
