Best Thai food in Cairns in my opinion. Bit more expensive then most of the other Thai restaurants but worth it. Super friendly staff. Lots of vegetarian/vegan options.

Ordered Chili Fish and it came very sweet. I mentioned that I wanted it spicy when I placed the order. This place is not an authentic Thai restaurant. Avoid if possible.

Thai food is my favourite and this was very disappointing. I dont think Ive ever left Thai food on the plate but definitely did here. Had three different dishes that all tasted the same almost as if the same bottle of very sweet sauce was overly used. All the vegetables were crinkle cut as if they were frozen vegies.

Just booked my wedding breakfast at this restaurant. The entire menu was available to build our choices of courses. Very helpful preparations with the wedding theme and whilst ours is not a large group (25) the inside and outside option was perfect. I wasn't sure of many eating preferences (vegetarian or vegan) and alternatives are available if required. They will... More
