Confusing concept. Is it Thai or Aussie? Why is there open face sandwich in a Tgai restaurant. Menu is confusing. Their Thai food is not proper Thai. This restaurant cooks and serves to Aussie taste. If you are Asian, don't waste your money.

We've been here many times and today was for Mother's Day. The restaurant was really full and busy as you'd expect but the staff, although certainly under pressure, handled themselves well and maintained a cheerful attitude throughout. Three of our party had Salt & Pepper...More
