Cosy little restaurant in Penguin. We had three dishes plus some fried rice. The food was of a good standard. It is also a BYO. Our friends had dined here several times, good choice.

We loved our little visit to the gorgeous seaside town Penguin and we were pleasantly surprised that there was a little Thai restaurant. The food was excellent. The location is up on a hill where you get a feel for how the locals live here....More

The thai ladies are great. The food was very traditional and they were very friendly. It wasn’t over expensive. But it is BYO. A great place for Thai food.

Loved their number 20 on the menu - chicken with vegetables and a wicked sauce. They have moved from Braddon Street Penguin about two minutes away to Mission Hill.

A small establishment with only half a dozen tables but with a pleasant ambience. The food was well flavoured and, as least for us - their 1st sit down customers for the evening- reasonably quickly prepared. As the evening progressed, and the single waitress was...More

Yes difficult to tell whose going to turn up.. Our two waitresses are incredible so delays are usually a result of Pluny being the solo wok player and me making soups curries and entrees..because she cooks to order invividual requests. Eg "no capsicum or onion"...More

We decided on takeaway dinner. The food was definitely worth the wait and the staff were lovely. It is quite hard to get genuine Thai food cooked well outside of Thailand but Plunys do this extremely well. The only suggestion that I would make is...More

Always a pleasure to dine at Pluny's. First time was eat-in at the old Arnold St. premises. This time, at Mission Hill Road, we were getting takeaway. Generous servings, tasty and very good value. There was a bit of a wait, but they do give...More
