Asked what they would recommend... suggestion was pepper pork. Got dry salted pieces of pork with dry pieces of garlic skin, dry steamed white rice and a salad without dressing. When I asked for dressing for the salad, I was given chop sticks. Burgers are...More

Our burger cost us around $10, expensive for Thailand and was not authentic. Tastes sweet? Just not so tasty. Fries were also not great... service was good and beer was cold. Just not happy with dropping $25 on a meal that wasn’t very satisfying. I...More

Clearly they have ambition to serve great food but the thai heritage shows and let's them down a bit. The burgers are good but the beef patties are too thick and it has a thai flavor that does not fit the burgers. Great and friendly...More

We had Thai food which was very good and the price was good. However the service was poor to the point we skipped coffee & dessert. It wasn’t busy but the staff on duty seemed to be focused on other things.More

With this being an Irish bar I expected a lot more personally, service was slow and English wasn’t very good. Food was very basic, ordered steak which was asked for well done and came out raw. Very expensive, lots of mosquitoes everywhere wouldn’t recommend.More

The double pooky is absolutely huge and extremely good. You can even make it bigger by adding egg and additional cheese. The salade and pork chop was also very good. I definitely recommend the place if you are tired of rice and noodle 😉More

We are a small family run business operating since 2013. Our local chef provides authentic local cuisine and quality western food. We opened Pooky's Place as a restaurant in late 2013 and evolved into a THAIRISH Pub. In late 2016 we took the opportunity to move to a bigger location and named it Pooky O'Leary's. Customers can enjoy food,drinks, music, live sports and free pool, wifi, darts. As the club house for the local D.M.F.C. team we are proud to have 2 trophy shelves. As of mid 2018 we are still growing into the new place. Last updated 24/5/2018
