Have beautiful food, Thai is lovely and they have a lot of gluten free options. Previously before they changed hands service was great, however I feel that it isn't as good now. Some meals can be quite expensive for dinner. Good ramp out the front for wheelchair access

We had a birthday dinner for one of our group and it was a great night. The service wasn’t as quick as it normally is but the food as always was worth the wait, great quality for a fair price. The price of the meals at dinner time are more expensive, as you would expect, but the serving sizes are... More

We were 6, and attended Vanilla Bean for a lunch mid week. Six different dishes ordered from the lunch menu, and all 6 dishes were on the table in ten minutes, incredible service. If you are time limited for lunch, consider a visit to Vanilla Bean, the service was amazing and so was the food. Most of the meals chosen... More

We recently went here for a business lunch and a colleague requested to make a slight change to the menu due to her allergies. From then on, the service we received was rude and demeaning. This is disappointing, as previous experiences have been good. We now feel very reluctant to recommend or dine at Vanilla Bean because of the embarrassing... More

We went there after a late change of mind and we were delighted with the food and service. I have no trouble recommending a dinner date.

Located in the old Red Cross Hall, the building has been renovated and works well as a restaurant. There is a good ramp at the front for wheelchairs which was very helpful for my father in law. Service is good for a busy restaurant and the staff are friendly and helpful. If you have the choice a good tip is... More

We used to be regulars before it change hands. It didn't matter if you were there for the first time or 100th. We moved away, and was passing through so decided to go. No smiles, no warm greeting. Shown to our table. Order taken. Plates were plonked onto the table and the waiters body turned away. No eye contact. No... More

I feel like a regular. Each week, we usually decide to make the vanilla bean our lunch of choice for catch ups. Service is very quick. Depending what you order & how busy it is, your food could be on the table in 5mins. I always go the Basa at lunchtime. The Thai dishes are delicious too. They do takeaway... More
