This is the best Thai Iv'e ever had. The food was cooked just perfect with matching great service. Great value for money. Coolum Thai Spice is now my favorite Thai restaurant to visit in Coolum. I will be back many more times.

Lovely food, went with a large group and everyone was very pleased with their meal. Accommodated those who like it a bit spicier and great for the kids as well. Great location and lovely staff. Will definitely go again!!

Fresh, fast (even during peak times), amazing flavours, extensive menu, friendly staff, value for money especially (especially the lunch specials on Fri sat and sun). Can't recommend this restaurant highly enough.

Don't judge this restaurant by it's cover. It may look average but it is the best thai restaurant in Coolum Beach. Low pricing, decent serve sizes, friendly service, and delicious. I won't get thai anywhere else in Coolum Beach now.

Some of the best Thai food I have tasted. I was most happy with some good vegetarian options. Could not fault friendly and helpful service. Food well presented, good portions and great flavours. Very happy to recommend and to return.

All the boxes are ticked, the Service, food and location, you can't really go past this establishment. The lunch specials are such good value, under $10 for an amazing Thai dish. The owner is just lovely which has meant our family just keeps going back. Highly recommend the calamari and satay chicken. Please keep up the amazing vibe staff!

Yes the satay chicken and calamari are very popular and I am pleased you liked these too. See you next time. More

Went there for Boxing Day tea - had HOT chilli prawns - they were great, the place was very busy but worth waiting for.

busy - school holidays - coped well with rush - had previously well reviewed for lunch, and dinner just as good - Bill and his team scurried around competently and cheerfully - funnily enough a new asian restaurant up the road a few hundred metres had people waiting on footpath but there was still seating available and wondered initially if...

My husband and I drive about an hour for this Thai. The man running the show is always friendly and makes the effort to have a chat. The food is always fresh and beautiful.
