This is a small, modest establishment with just five or six tables that is run by a family - looks like dad at front of house, and mother and son in the kitchen. (Son also waiting tables.) It is quite nicely decorated though would not say ambience is in abundance. Where it does best is with its food and its... More

A quiet little place, love the thai decorations and mementos on the walls. Relatively cheap and generous servings - plenty of leftovers. The vegetarian pad thai was particularly delicious!

Food is lovely and the prices are awesome. It is a lovely quiet place to sit down and have some great food. Our book club meets there and we can hear ourselves talking with no background noise.

The food was good and very tasty. Went there with two friends for their $9 and $10 lunchtime deal. The restaurant is run by the chef, who does everything by herself. No waiting staff during the daytime and she runs the restaurant well. At the end of the meal we were anticipating a bill for around $30, however, the bill... More

A birthday do brought us here. As other have said, it won't be winning any awards for its ambience. 9 of us for dinner on a quiet night with only one other table occupied. I have never seen a Thai waitress more disinterested in what was going on. There was no offer to help us open our beers so I... More

The quintessential small Thai family restaurant! Thought I was back in Thailand with the atmosphere and offerings! The service by family members was warm and efficient. As for the food, it was plentiful and authentic. No loads of sugar here....just straightforward authentic Thai food from Isan province.....the jungle curry and the somtum and larb salads were terrific. This spot does... More

It's a funny place this, the decore and ambience aren't great, it's a dingy old premises but they've made some attempt to pretty it up Thai style without doing any substantial works. The food has great flavour but is a kind of rustic version of the kind of Thai that many in Australia will expect, heavy on in-season vegetables which... More

This restaurant has a wide choice of menu options, so many that it was difficult to choose. My wife and I eventually settled on dishes that were elegantly presented, were made from good quality produce and were well cooked and combined with delicious sauces. The proprietor was welcoming and we discussed, at some length, his strategies for ensuring high quality... More

Ordered Chicken wings, "Masman" Beef, Pad thai and satay chicken skewers, 2 orders of rice - $51.50 "Masman" beef was nothing more than terrible beef stew. Kind of tasted like massaman beef but not really. A little bit of sauce, well water, was in the stew but it tasted like it was half finished. Really bad. A 7 dollar pre-made... More
