My daughter saw this restaurant today. It was about midday, saw the lunch menu, $9.90 menu. We both chose chilli basil chicken. We didn't have to wait long about 5-10 minutes and it arrived at our table. Large portions and absolutely delicious. One of the best I have tried. Will definitely go back. Highly recommend.

We visited Shelly's Thai again this Saturday for lunch with the family. This time we ordered the Pork Belly, Duck and Soft Shell Crab - all the dishes were fantastic and very fresh and well prepared. We'll be back!

The service was good, The hours are poor for us southerners they close at 8! but to be fair the whole street shuts. The food was flavoursome, price ok but not traditional more a blend of Asian flavours you decide if that's good or bad? I prefer pure.

This is my go to Thai at Coolum. I always have Satay stir fry with chicken and jasmine rice. Can't comment on dining in..as always have takeaway. Never had a bad meal here. Mixed entree is always good as well. Good takeaway. No complaints

Visited on a Tuesday night - middle of January, so maybe holiday mode was in full swing and hence the terrible service to diners. First impressions - Take away seemed to flow nicely with no one waiting more than a few minutes in comfy seats that could of housed dining patrons - clearly this establishment has enough turnover to leave...

Have been to Shelly's Thai Restaurant in Coolum Beach a few times now, and never been disappointed. The menu offers a good range of the usual Thai food options and the meals are cooked and presented exceptionally well. Service has been beyond reproach on each visit, and I am more than happy to recommend this establishment.

Definitely one of the best Thai takeaways I have ever had. Chicken fried rice, coconut rice and the beef Penang was simply - amazing .. fish cakes were terrible but the curry puffs delicious also - will definitely go again !!!!

This was some of the best Thai food we have had in a while. Really tasty and full of loads of crunchy vegetables. We didn't ask for mild/medium/hot and came out fairly spicy so make sure you ask for mild if you don't like it hot.The serves are very generous, and I think 2 between the 3 of us would... More

Last visit to Coolum (over two years ago) we ate here and unfortunately the food wasn't that great. Decided to give it a try again. Fantastic service with very friendly staff but the best thing was that the food was very tasty. Freshly cooked with enough spices to be just right (in my opinion) for the Australian palate. If you...

On a quiet Monday night we had dinner with friends, another couple at Shellys. Service was good and the food we selected was fresh, tasty and really good value.
