Fast service and a terrific Thai menu. Every dish is perfect. Tip.... the lamb madras is a whole lamb shank. It’s wonderful. Thanks to all the staff for another great night.

Good and tasty green curry, king prawns was good size, succulent and very tasty. Red chicken curry was also good, but lacking actual chicken. Waitresses were great and service with a smile🙏🏽😁Deep fried ice cream was average. Try the Promised Land pinot noir🍷

Here we had very good and inexpensive lunch. Chicken Satay and fried rice with beef, each for $ 10.90. Friendly and quick service.

A top spot in Shoal Bay for Thai! We had a large group of 8 and were served quickly and efficiently on a busy Friday night. The food was top notch. Delicious and authentic! We’ll be back for sure :)

This restaurant (both Nelson Bay and Shoal Bay outlets) does massive local advertising about how great their food is, the fast service and how "regulars flock for the authentic food". THE FOOD IS NOT REAL THAI AND DEFINITELY NOT THAI FLAVOURED. I know and love...More

I would check in winter. They weren't open last time we popped down there (a Tuesday night in off-peak season.)
