The only place around, which allowed the dreadful "store" to outrageously overcharge. An ice cream bar cost $5.50, With very questionable hygiene there, in general,. i would never brave using the restroom. We groaned whenever out guide brought us back there.

It's weird to find Thai food in Ubirr. But the food was really good compared to the expensive restaurant at Katherine. Easy to find this place and some people were unhappy to find Thai food there. We certainly found it delightful....

The food here was amazing. I love Thai food and they got it spot on. Lovely little shop with very friendly staff who were very helpful.

Went to the shop for lunch- ordered thai dishes and hot chips. Love the chips and coffee. Thai dishes are just ok. Unfortunately the toilets are across the road (troublesome with young kids) and tap for hand washing not working.
