We arrived at 6pm on Friday night. The restaurant was about half-full, mostly people heading to Rod Laver arena for the tennis that night. We had to wait an hour for our food, which was really good food and tasty. The waitress seemed to be run off her feet and could have done with another pair of hands. When we... More

The place smelt awful, the music wouldn't play but the staff were very nice & friendly. The food was expensive & quite small portions except the steamed rice which was overflowing.

But staff were friendly fast and efficiant. And most happy to please when I asked for more spice and fresh chillies ect.. Better than a warm pie... More

We had dinner after the football (NRL) on a Saturday night with a booking. The order taking was quick and the food served within 20 minutes. The food was good with reasonable portions but the flavor was very western in terms of spices. If you are into true Thai ask for the heat to be turned up. Prices were on... More
