We went to this restaurant on a Monday night which is one of only a few places you can go in Thornleigh on a Monday. We were nothing short of impressed. The entrées were fresh and handmade. The main meals were huge and also exceptional quality. We will be back! Thanks!

Food was very well presented and an extensive menu to choose from.Seating is very crowded,which makes it very noisy & your chair constantly being bumped by waitstaff. Would not go here if you want a relaxing night out.Good for a large group of people as you would dominate the restaurant.

We were lucky to score a table on Sunday night without booking! The menu was very comprehensive with lots to choose from. We settled for Penang curry duck, orange blossom salad and green papaya salad with crying tiger. The papaya salad was probably slightly disappointing since the sticky rice was very hard and the meat was a little tough. However,... More

Have never had a bad meal here. Beautifully presented food! Good prices too! Love the steamed Dim Sims! BYO which is good. A little crowded and a little noisy but it is expected at this sort of restaurant! Best to book as usually full!

For less than 30 bucks each, the banquet was very nice. The starters and mains were both hot and delicious. There are only a few minor negatives with this restaurant. It was packed when we were there, and it was loud. You can't really have a normal conversation there. And the service is OK. There are a few long breaks... More

If you're after something a little different to your normal local Thai, the SEAT is for you. Softshell crab is amazing. In fact I don't think I've had a dish here that I didn't like! Can get a little crowded on weekends so best option is to book. Also great for weekend lunch.

Popular local Thai restaurant right at the train station. Prompt service, OK prices but if looking for traditional Thai you might be a little disappointed. Menu seems to cater to mainly those who don't like things too spicey, food can be a little bland but then this is probably the reason it seems to do well in this location.

This is one of my favourite restaurants, and my favourite Thai restaurant. The chef brings new Thai tastes to your palate and these are combined with fresh produce. The food is artistically presented and very appealing to the senses - yes, all of them. The snapper is truly unique and its worth the visit just to experience this gastronomic delight.

Such a great menu, quick service and so tasty m! Every dish was fantastic! However getting the waitresses' attention can be tricky. It's very crowded and they walk up and down the middle generally. The volume is loud so it's difficult to be heard. All worth it for the food though!

Thank Gloria Jean R
