The service is excellent . The food lacks imagination. Thai food can be a lot more exciting and creative. Put on some creative specials for the adventurous punter.

Although it’s on the expensive side for Thai food, Thai Pothong is always very good. The menu is extensive and the food is consistently good. Friendly and efficient service with excellent desserts. The mango sticky rice cocktail is also definitely worth a try.

We headed to Thai Pothong for a family birthday celebration and had a great time. Staff were very friendly and attentive, food was great and the birthday balloons etc were the icing on the cake. Will definitely head back again.

Great Thai food, service with a smile. I heard the owner spends a lot of time in Thailand and you can certainly tell as he brings back the flavours to his restaurant
