The vegetarian Pad Thai is to die for. So fresh and tasty. Don't have to wait long whether you dine in or take out. Easy parking. Good prices.

There are a lot of good Thai and Asian restaurants in Cairns but this is the best. Worth the trip out of town. BYO only.

Passed Thai Coins on Mulgrave Rd very often and promised to dine in some day. Now wondering why it has taken so long. The service was quick, the staff friendly, the prices very reasonable and the food was just delicious. We had the Massaman beef curry and Thai Sweet & Sour served with a generous steamed rice.

Tried 2 entrees and 3 main plates shared and they were all 10/10 down to the coconut rice and the sizzling meat plate was super tender. The squid plate was probably the best ever as well. It would be indeed, hard to top this place for the price that we were charged. Best yet it is byo.

Obviously people who have eaten in the big tourist cities of Thailand rate this. Sorry very average, expensive and not authentic, lots of good places locally that would kill it on price, service and authenticity.
