After reading great things about this place and being someone who loves Thai food I thought I would give it a go. Entree was Satay sticks which I did not like, the satay sauce was tasteless. Main we had red curry chicken, this was ok and we had stir fry chicken in satay sauce, this dish I thought had no... More

I am quite a fan of Pad Thai and have tried upwards of about 15 different places in Canberra. Thip's comes a very close 2nd for quality and flavour, but if we compare with price as well as Thip's is #1. The Pad Thai was $12 and absolutely delicious. Service was average but they were incredibly busy as people know... More

Thip and her husband have been running this business for more than 20 years. I remember eating here when I first arrived in Canberra. I am one of many fans who return week after week for delicious home style cooked Thai dishes. The restaurant is small and located in the Belconnen Churches centre close to the mall and opposite the... More

Really authentic Thai food. Thai restaurants in Canberra are everywhere, but this is the only one I have found that doesn't "Australian-ise" there food. Spicy, fresh, authentic. I travel from the southside just for Thip's, it's the best. If you are looking for somewhere with ambiance this probably isn't the place for you.

Everyone is correct in saying the decor is shopfront with plastic chairs. But the food is very nice and probably the best in Belconnen and possibly north side that I have tried. Good for a quick feed, but is very busy fat lunch time. Will go back as they ran out of beef with basil and chilli! One small and... More

I have been coming to Thip's Thai since 2008 and it has never disappointed. Yes, the setting is basic & outdated but the food is in a league of its own. Always fresh, authentic and full of flavor, Thip and Deng never fail to deliver on service and quality. Hidden away in the concrete jungle that is the Churches Centre,... More

This is our new go-to place for inexpensive Thai food in Belconnen! The food is prepared with care and the flavours are fresh and amazing. Thip is a lovely lady who is always welcoming with a big smile! They are just cafe tables but the atmosphere is always great! My Combination Pad Thai was delicious as was the Grilled Pork.... More

Fabulous seafood pad Thai tonight no complaints about service or anything it's cheap and cheerful my only issue is with the cash only policy. The nearest ATM is about a kilometre away on foot on the ground floor of Westfield shopping centre

If you want to experience authentic Thai food, you can't miss this Thai restaurant. My wife and I have been loyal customers of this restaurant since we arrived in Canberra in 2010. The food is even more delicious than some restaurants in Bangkok. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in Australia.
