“Great food great service”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

A group of 12 friends descended on the Hot Wok Restaurant for an annual reunion( a different location each year) dinner. As you can imagine there was much frivolity and loud conversations but the lovely wait staff just went about their job in a friendly and competently manner.

Service was fast and efficient and the food was devine and appealed to all tastes. Prices were extremely reasonable as well and BYO was not a problem at all.

A very enjoyable evening and will go back next time we are in Cabarita Beach

“Great food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Located alongside other restaurants in the main shopping street of Cabarita Beach is the Hot Wok Thai Restaurant. It is the more "refined" of the two Thai restaurants. If you are seeking a romantic evening, this is the Thai Restaurant to dine at, though the restaurant does offer both take-away and dine in options. If you are wishing to "dine in" bookings would be recommended, particularly during the warmer and busier holiday months of the year. The restaurant currently offers either a range of Thai dishes on an "a la carte" menu and two "three course" set menu options (set menu - $20 or $23 per person). All menu prices are quite reasonable. On this occasion my husband and I selected the $20 per person three course set menu. Each of us were able to select entrée, a main meal and dessert from a select menu. Between us we selected vegetarian spring rolls (4), curry puffs (4), Panang Pork with Jasmine Rice and Chicken and Cashews with Jasmine Rice, a vanilla ice cream and a black pudding. The entrées were fresh, crisp and well seasoned. We would have liked other sauce options rather than the usual "out of the bottle" sweet chilli sauce, at other nearby restaurants we often get a range of traditional sauces. The main meals were well cooked with fresh meat and vegetables and had "full bodied" sauces. One criticism is that not quite enough rice was provided with each main meal. While the ice-cream was nothing spectacular and possibly out of a plastic container, the warm black sticky rice was very tasty and we found combining the ice-cream with the pudding at the table made a great dessert. Our only criticism is that the dessert serving sizes were quite small. Overall, a great night and the restaurant is well worth a visit if you are travelling along this laid back part of the coast.

“Below average ”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

Loving Thai food I was disappointed with this place.
Staff were ok a bit bored looking but the food was way below average.
Thai fish cakes were extremely rubbery and the mains were typical ready made sauce type of meals!
Wish we'd gone with our original choice of the Thai next door.

“Some like it hot”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

As with all Thai you need to appreciate food with a bit of punch to really enjoy Thai food. This is good food at reasonable prices and ou can ask them to offer less spicy options. They do a great Masuman and their traditional Thai food is very tasty.
