“Lovely food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

This place serves the most delicious food in Stellenbosch. My family thinks I am crazy. OK, granted, I love hot food. Their Tom Gha Ka (spelling) soup is delicious. The green thai curry is fantastic, same with the red curry.

The standard of the food is always the same (good), the service is fast and the place is clean and tidy.

I always buy take aways there as the sit down area is rather small (although I always see other people sitting there).

My daughter loves their spring rolls

“Authentic Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Had a sit down meal at Thai Cafe with family and friends.....Great value and truely good fresh food with loads of flavour. Will go back. Service was not up to scratch as the wiater was new and did not understand the menu. Nevertheless, a good lunch spot that will certainly deliver good value for money.

“Good food - weird plates!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

Food was good. My wife who is Thai asked for it Thai style and was happy. However, the portion size for her dish was way too big, even for a Thai and she said 3 people would have struggled to finish it. Mainly the dish consisted of noodles so just cut back on those and make the dish smaller or price it accordingly.

“Tasty meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

I love the flavour in all their meals. It really is proper thai cooking and the portions quite big. I never sat in their restaurant and always had the food delivered. The service is quite efficient and quick and they do the extra bit to satisfy their customers. Definitely a yes from me!

“The closest thing to Thai food I've had in SA”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

The closest thing to Thai food I've had in SA with all the authentic ingredients like kaffir lime leaves and galangal that I enjoyed so much in Thailand. Some of the food had a little too much sugar but overall it's great on taste and value.
