I came with a small group of friends who love Thai food. While relatively local, I had not been here in a couple of years. In that time, they have lifted their game again. We had samosa and satays for entree - very good. For main we had crispy barramundi in a lovely well balanced sauce, pad thai noodles and... More

Decided to dine here again after 12 months and the food was still as good as it was the first time I dined here. Place was house full and people still coming through the door only to be turned away so ensure you make a booking particularly on Friday and Saturday nights. Was a little disappointed that the menu has... More

The night started with attentive staff but I was confused with why the menu was at least half of what the take away menu/pamphlet had to offer but we ordered from the take away menu anyways. After we ordered our entrees and mains. We agreed to order dessert after because we maybe too full. As the entree was served I... More

Decided to try this restaurant again after a few years, now recall why we werent in a rush to return. The restaurant itself has a nice ambience but bench seating on either side if the room means tables are placed quite close, so you feel like you are dining with the couple or group next to you. It is BYO... More

Went here for dinner 2 nights ago, only half the menu was available to order. Food was bland, had no flavour and was just not nice. Won't be going here again 😑

We ate at Som Thai tonight for my Birthday. I was disappointed with the size of the starter but the main meal was sensational. The flavors were just what we were looking for. The desert was also beautiful. I'm glad we chose to eat there.

I'd frequented this place several times. It appears that the menu had changed and shrunk during this latest visit. The salmon in a sweet and sour thai style source is new on the list for me. Tasted good. The twice cooked crispy pork belly with wok-fried gai lan in garlic and soy, one of my favourite here, still remains. Overall,... More
