“Food ok, but nothing to rave about”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

This thai restaurant is always very busy so thought we would give it a try. Staff very friendly but found the menu was just a little boring. Meal portions are huge so don't go overboard as we did.
The flavour just wasn't there and think its just another franchise doing it by the book.
I just think they need to spice things up a little and add a few more dishes instead of the traditional stir fry stuff. They should also have a mixed entrée so you don't have to have 5 of the same things on your plate.

“Most enjoyable simple Thai lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This place is a little out of my way, but it's always good for a lunch. It's a bargain at under $9 for a meal with rice for lunch 7 days a week. Food is fresh, full of flavour, and staff are attentive with drinks, water, etc. It's a place I am at regularly, and recommend it highly!

“it wins”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Glad to report that Doytao Thai has won our family "best Thai" award. Having been there for many years, we decided to try out a couple of other local thai restaurants over the last month or so, before returning to Doytao to double check. Not the cheapest (and prices have gone up a dollar or so over the last year ) but the food is consistent good quality and service quick when not too busy. Parking is good. Winner of best dish was the crispy chili fish.

“Friendly & delicious neighborhood Thai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

A real gem to have in the area, it really is a friendly and relaxing atmosphere. The food is always great and fresh and it's also good value for money. I count myself lucky to have this place as my local Thai restaurant!

“Beautiful, fresh, value for money Thai!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

I love the Doytao restaurants including the one in Newtown Sydney. The food is cooked to order in an open kitchen and the service is friendly and very efficient. The meals range from $10 - $22ish and are excellent size portions. Also open late which is a bonus!
Will definitely return if in the area :)
