Pluny's Thai (now moved to 27 Mission Hill Rd, Penguin) has spectacular authentic Thai food! Of course!! Since discovering Pluny a few months ago, we've been there many times - tasting our way through the menu. I kind of settled on Penang Chicken (an absolute hit!), whilst the rest of the family drool over Pluny's Chicken Pad Thai. The portions... More

I have dined at Pluny's at least four times in the last six months. It is a genuine family-run Thai restaurant. The food is great, and they are willing to vary the spices to your taste. The service is great, if a bit amateurish (which adds to the charm). Recommended.

We had the pleasure of enjoying a lovely dinner here. They were under the pump as they had staff away but the food was worth the wait. Probably one of the nicest penang chicken curries I've had. ☺ Highly recommend

I cooked the Tom Ka Gai.. And it was beautiful .. Your right it's not Tom yum ??..completely different.. As was the Tom sap.. The green chicken curry was good too,..Plunys servings are notoriously generous.. Once you'd ordered essentially 3 mains plus rice I imagine one could feel a little full..You would not be the first person to over order... More

We rave about Pluny's to everyone we come across so I thought I'd give them a good review here. We are locals since 6month and go to Pluny's about once a fortnight. Such a gem of a place for Penguin, a sleepy little town with few food options. The service and the food is absolutely amazing and it is always... More

We grabbed takeaway. Service was a bit scratchy- had to call out to place an order but no big deal. Food was nice- we ate it all up: Green curry chicken and ginger chicken. Can recommend.

Food is of good quality and plentiful. Menu has something for everyone. Take away option available. Cost is reasonable. Eat here on a regular basis so it can't be bad.

We were in Penguin on a Sunday night in June and the only restaurant choices were the local pub or Plunys. It's such a small town and, to be honest, we were kind of expecting pretty average (Australian) Thai food. Imagine our shock and pleasure when Pluny's delivered some of the best Thai food we've ever eaten! If you're in... More

This place was fairly average as Thai cuisine goes. Partner ordered a pork dish and the pork was tough. I ordered a chilli dish and couldn't taste any chilli. The place was heated with a small electric heater. Prices were good and service was good.
