Thoroughly enjoyed discovering this local Thai restaurant. Recommend for a mid week meal in this busy and popular little gem. It is only small and tables were full during the time we were there so we did book ahead. Service is brisk but friendly. We will return.

Oh my goodness, am I glad I came across this little gem! Popped in just before they were closing on a Saturday night and they were still happy to serve us take away. The entire restaurant was full so we assumed it must be good... we were right! Highly recommend the duck salad - TO DIE FOR! Prices were reasonable,... More

The place was packed on a Friday night with as many people picking up take away as eating within. It's not the place for an intimate dinner but it is the place to go for delicious and plentiful Thai food at a great price. The staff were really friendly and super busy.

This is a small restaurant (about 30 seats) which offers reasonably priced food (most main courses are less than AUD$20), friendly service and a family friendly ambience. It can be somewhat noisy when they're busy- as seating becomes a bit tight! The food ranges from the authentic to the crowd pleasing- so they cater for a variety of tastes. They... More

This small Thai kitchen is a gem and is constantly full of locals Wonderful Thai food prepared from fresh ingredients at a very reasonable price, you can't go wrong. Just be aware that if you ask for hot chilli, it's really, really hot!

We ordered 8 dishes for a family takeaway and everything was so awesome! The best Pad Thai ever - we should have got two servings!

Rena's food is fresh and authentic. I love that it isn't greasy and doesn't appear to be full of MSG. Rena is a friendly woman who always has a smile on her face. Yes, the place is small but that's what makes it feel so cozy! Love it. 10/10 any night of the week.

Thank Amanda E
