Group of 6 of us went for weekday lunch. Myself and one other had the pad thai which was close to inedible: VERY sweet, lacking any real flavour and suspect meat within. Gave up less than half way through the dish which is not like me at all but this dish was a shocker. Did not feel good for the rest of the afternoon.

From the menu: “pad thai noodles with pork, bean sprouts, peanuts & eggs.”
Bean sprouts? well overcooked.
Peanuts? not present.
Eggs? not present
Pork? possibly past the use by date.

Having said that the rest of the (non-fussy) group gobbled their various dishes down hence the 3 star rating. Further grumbles would have resulted in a definite 2 **.

Will not go there again.

I went to this place last Friday. It is a small restaurant very friendly service. You can see their open kitchen. I ordered my favourite Pla Rad Prik fish with chili sauce. It was cook nicely with crispy skin outside and tender inside. I like the tamarind taste. I have few chats with staffs and this restaurant seems to be a local favourite. Price is also very reasonable. I must take my family for a change. We always dine in central city.

Delicious! Went here with a big group of mums for a night out. Wish I had have ordered an entree but the main was delicious!
Also on this evening two other large groups were dining (that time of year). I was disappointed that the staff did not do anything about one of the large group tables who came in and immediately began making a lot of noise. In the end (after much tolerance from all parties) the noise escalated so much that somebody from the other group table ended up going over and saying something to them.
Something for the management to think about in future. But the food was outstanding.

Very disappointed. I ordered the pork and chicken fried rice with season veges and cashew nuts from the takeaway menu. The pork was fatty, chicken quite pink, season veges were like frozen peas, corn and carrots and not one cashew nut to be seen.

Went there for the first time last week on a Wednesday. Used my deal voucher, where my husband and I had two entrees and two mains for $35. SO CHEAP.

It was so yum! Our 2.5 year daughter had the kids chicken strips and fries, she gobbled that all up

I ate the peanut satay chicken for entree and my husband had the scallops, both tasted DELICIOUS.

Then for my main I had the red curry and my husband had the sweet and sour and both were cooked to perfection. Definitely the best Thai place out and luckily for us they are only around the corner from us.

I’ve been here several times for lunch and love the food. I’ve ordered the tom yum goong, massaman while friends that I lunched with ordered the Penang curry, yellow curry, etc. – no complaints so far. We enjoyed our meals and the beautiful service too!

It does get crowded during lunch time (especially Fridays) so I suggest going early. The wait is a bit longer than expected during such times but when the food is out for your table, it’s all out at once, which is really nice.

Great food, reasonable prices with fast and friendly service. We get takeaway from here nearly every week which you can order right off their website.

My only suggestion would be to have a few more dishes on the menu, maybe some more noodle mains?

This place recently opened down the road from my work – it is delicious, they do a $15 lunch which is very generous and comes with a spring roll and curry puff. It’s very tasty! And quick to arrive.
The service is also fantastic, I’ve been here a few times now and will return again.
