I have lvied in Asia for 4 years, my partner for 10 , both have visited Thailand on many occasions and we guarantee that the Blue Galangal is as good as sitting on a street corner of Bangkok! The chef is an amazing fellow and he runs the restaurant with his family. Food is amazing and intensity of flavour is... More

Compared to all of the other Thai restaurants around this is probably the cheapest. A few different entrees were worth trying out, particularly the 'not' curry puffs. The pad Thai was a bit sweet and bland but the mussaman curry was tender and terrific. Don't expect a flash setting, the lack of flash is made up with quality of food.

This quaint little 'hole-in-the-wall' in Camberwell used to be my local Thai place. I eat a lot of Thai food, as it is my go-to takeaway option on the nights I can't be bothered cooking. So it's with high praise I say this is my favorite place in Melbourne to get a Thai curry. The Beef Massaman curry here is... More

Very extensive menu with plenty of variety beyond the normal Thai restaurant offering. We sampled a number of different dishes which the passionate chef prepares in the visible open kitchen. I must admit I cannot remember enjoying a Thai meal as much for a very long time. Quality thick sauces and marinades bring the food to life. Very reasonably priced.... More

Well priced and as spicy as promised. Had a few dishes as they are intentionally quite small (think Thai street food portions), but you cannot deny how tasty they are. Another surprise was the service. Friendly, fast and extremely accommodating. There is a seasonal meal they make with mangoes. They aren't getting mangoes in till later in the season but... More

Fantastic Thai Cafe - great service and food is delicious. Perfect place for a group/family meal. The chef is very accommodating in terms of the 'heat' factor! We love it.
