The portions served were quite large, so we had enough leftovers for lunch the next day. Food was tasty and sevice was friendly. There are two Mod Thai restaurants, one opposite the woolies in Nelson Bay, the other opposite Shoal Bay beach.

Great lunchtime specials, food was fresh and served quickly by friendly staff. Chef was happy to make a minor change for one of our party. It was a super hot day so was really good to sit in air conditioned comfort.

Food was great and plenty of it. Chicken & Cashews was awesome. We will be back next time we visit Shoal Bay. An excellent atmosphere as well. Seeing the staff busy in the kitchen added to the experience.

We visit Nelson Bay multiple times each year but this time was with a new born baby. We rang ahead to book and advise we'll have a pram. The people were very accommodating and mentioned they would move tables around to ensure we could fit our pram. In addition to this, the staff were very friendly and the food was... More

We ate twice here while staying at the bay - once was takeaway and the second was in the restaurant with our family of five. Both food experiences were great. All of the dishes were of very high quality and we do love our Thai food. It's a very busy place but the staff do a great job and were... More
