I had takeaway from here but the ambience of the restaurant was pretty chill and they had nice-looking couch seating, reminiscent of Japanese or Korean seating with the tables sunk down and raised seating around them. +: fish cakes, roast duck curry, coconut rice, and Thai style fried rice were all quite nice -: ginger fish not very ginger-y, more...

Have dined here a couple times, twice on a girls only night out and again with just my family (hubby, and a son preschool) have always found the service friendly and the food tasty. Love their pad thai and chicken cashew curry. If dining with a large group last I went it was one bill per table so keep that... More

My wife and I eat Thai on a regular basis, decided to try this restaurant based on reviews. Service was friendly and quick considering it was slightly busy when we arrived. Serving sizes were good, however we found the Thai salad disappointing (our local pub creates a better one). Pad Thai was very bland (not taste at all), best part... More

The decor of the restaurant is beautiful and really makes you feel like you are in Thailand, and the food was delicious. It came out quickly to so you weren't sitting around waiting. Will certainly be going back!

Three of us went to Som Tam Thai Restaurant. The last time I went here was in 1997 when I was pregnant with my first son and the owners have changed. However we will now be back often. The service was warm and helpful, the menu and drinks were extensive and they had our 3 favourite meals - Massaman Beef,... More

Food is pretty good. Its not nice having people walk past diners on their phones picking up their take away. Not a cheap night out

Yummy food. Decore makes you feel like your in Thailand. We booked a booth which you had to climb into. It was at floor level. Very authentic. Went on a saturday night. They were very busy but the service was quick and the food was amazing. Will definitely be visiting again.

Grabbed takeaway from here and threw it out, beef massaman isn't hard yet it was way too sweet for a curry and you couldn't even cut the beef! Would not ever recommend and will not return!

I get a Pad Thai at every Thai restaurant so I have a base line for my judgement. Being $11 for a takeaway pad thai I didn't have high expectations. But I was definitely surprised! The pad thai has heaps of flavour and generous with portions and meat quantity. It is also not dry and has plenty of veges and... More
