It styles itself as "Thai Street Food" and is not a flashy place. The food is excellent and is modestly priced. My Seafood Tom Yum soup and Beef salad was under $15. The service is good and water was brought to me before I had ordered. The proprietor was surprised when I asked for "hot", but not as surprised as... More

I have lvied in Asia for 4 years, my partner for 10 , both have visited Thailand on many occasions and we guarantee that the Blue Galangal is as good as sitting on a street corner of Bangkok! The chef is an amazing fellow and he runs the restaurant with his family. Food is amazing and intensity of flavour is... More

Compared to all of the other Thai restaurants around this is probably the cheapest. A few different entrees were worth trying out, particularly the 'not' curry puffs. The pad Thai was a bit sweet and bland but the mussaman curry was tender and terrific. Don't expect a flash setting, the lack of flash is made up with quality of food.

This quaint little 'hole-in-the-wall' in Camberwell used to be my local Thai place. I eat a lot of Thai food, as it is my go-to takeaway option on the nights I can't be bothered cooking. So it's with high praise I say this is my favorite place in Melbourne to get a Thai curry. The Beef Massaman curry here is... More
