I'm not sure what it is but I just couldn't go 5 stars. The food was great everything was presented well and exactly how we asked for it to arrive. Gluten free, mild curry etc. We sat inside as the outside tables were reserved. It was OK, and cosy bordering on tight/ cramped but acceptable. Everything just didn't make it... More

We have only had takeaway from here but we are extremely happy with what we've had. The soft shell crab is outstanding and the curry duck and penang chicken is great. We will go back to eat in one day soon.

Found the food to be a very basic attempt at Thai food. Lacked flavor. Service was also very average. Do not think I will be back.

This used to be one of our favourites. But since it was sold the food is terrible and the service is worse. Two weeks ago we called in for a quick meal. Ordered at 6.40 p.m. At 7.50 we asked for it to be put into a takeaway container as our 4 year old was falling asleep. They hadn't even... More

Such a shame this used to be a great affordable place to eat. Unfortunately now the food is ordinary and the service even more so.. Waiting times are terrible as you are often left to sit there for over 30 minutes waiting for your order to be taken while take away orders are being attended to promptly, perhaps if priority...

A small, local restaurant in Cooroy main Street, the Serene Thai serves up considerably good meals. We had massuman curry, Penang chicken, satays and spring rolls, all which were tasty and nicely presented. There are a few inside tables,xand others outside on the footpath. Inside is decorated so it's colourful and informal. Takeaway's are offered. We've been twice now,xand will... More

Seated outside under the heaters on a cold winters night with tasty Thai food. Delightful. We didn't have a booking for a Thursday evening but that wasn't a problem. Service was friendly and attentive. We ordered mixed entree, red curry and a basil stir fry with coconut rice. All dishes were delicious (beef was a little tough unfortunatley). Portion sizes...

This little Restaurant offers a lunch special for $10.50, I hadn't been here before but will return, I chose the Chicken Pad Thai from a choice of approximately ten (10) dishes on the special lunch menu and it was delicious together with a good sized serve, very impressed.
