We made a welcome stop here for some ice cream and a cool drink. We found out later they are the same people who run the Unbinik restaurant in Jabiru. Friendly people.

Enjoyed some delicious food here while sitting outside in the garden area. The fruit drink was refreshing and the spring rolls yummy.

This place is the proof that remote locations can also excel in quality. It was definitely the best meal in high priced Kakadu, really good Thai food in a lush garden like setting. Service was friendly and food quickly served.

We stopped there for a drink. I really liked the outside seating. Good feeling and heaven a bit fresh despite the 35 degrees temperature outside. A bit expensive like everything in Kakadu National Park.

We had the muffins made by the lovely lady at this store, they were the best things we ate in Kakadu, they were delicious! I found the food in the hotel in Jabiru not that great so really pleased to find The Border Store!

Everything in NT and Kakadu is costly but $25 for a plate of Thai food is outrageous, no matter where you are or how good the food. My husband said “for 6 plate s of Pad Thai we could take an airplane ride over Kakadu”....More

After walking along Ubirr for hours this the place to rest before you drive back to your camp. Nice food (also Thai!) and very good coffee.........the kids will love the different ice slushes!

A friend recommended I stop at the Border Store after my walk around Ubirr and order the mint and lime crush to cool down. Perfect. Not too sweet, refreshing. Other food includes a long list of Thai flavours, coffee, and nick knacks.
