This is without question the worst Thai food in Sydney. The ingredients are mostly frozen and of poor quality. What's more it's incredibly overpriced. I have lived in Crows Nest for over a year, and there are many good restaurants in the area. This one, hands down, is the worst.

By chance we stopped near by and decided to pop in for a bite to eat. Greeting is your standard meet and greet. Nice touch with a bowl of spicy prawn crackers when you sit down. Vegetable spring rolls are very good, good flavour & texture. The Vegetarian Pad Thai was a good portion and tasty. The Crispy pork belly... More

I've shared a meal here with friends and family on a few occasions and each time have found something different and enjoyable to eat. The food is good, portions are great and the service is very good. There's plenty of choices on the menu and all your favourites are there. The restaurant is spacious and decor interesting.

This restaurant is very, very average and in a sea of restaurants on the Willougby Road strip it needs to lift its game. The mixed platter entree was probably the most edible dish on the night. The chicken and cashew nuts was full of capsicum and not much else. The crying tiger was crying out for flavour and the Barramundi... More

We come here all the time for their $10 lunch special, and every time the food has been flavourful and tasty. Recommended is the green chicken curry. Definitely visit here if you are in Crows Nest.

We always get the same things - eggplant, prawn stack, yellow curry and the duck curry - always good

Visited the restaurant with my cousin who lives in the area at her suggestion, not usually a Thai food person but this dinner converted me, beautiful selection of dishes, all exceptionally tasty and we could share between the 3 of us, their signature entrée dish was spectacular

The food was very nice but the restaurant itself could do with an update or a bit of a make over, A good place for a nice meal with friends or family, but not a good venue for a business dinner or special occasion. Staff where nice & service was ok.

Went to go to my usual Thai but found it closed Monday nights. Googled tall lemongrass and thought I'd give it a try. What a bonus, service was fine and speedy and the food was yum. Prices were a little higher than my regular but food was also another level in the right direction. So now I have a problem... More

I have had dinner here about 5 times and love it. It is Thai with a twist. Staff are friendly however service may be a little but we don't mind as it is a very nice restaurant with a great atmosphere. Food has always been amazing and everyone I have dined with have gone back for more. Best Thai in... More
