Looking for Asian cuisine then this is a good start, quick service we dined in but they do takeaways as well. Portions are generous plenty of flavour. But I would give the so called fish cakes a miss, not sure what was in them but I couldn't taste the fish and they where oily and tough. Apart from that the... More

Headed to Cafe Thailand and let me say you won't be disappointed. The food is excellent, tasty / great mix of flavors together with excellent customer service - with a smile, price was competitive but really quick service. Don't dismiss this place my friends, would recommend it.

However it was nice enough for us to want to return which we did and... More

#1 - The fish cakes 😩 i started with these 4 little oil soaked red rubbery things that were nothing like Thai fish cakes. The store bought sweet chilli sauce from a bottle was the best part of this dish for $8.90. Absolute rubbish. #2 - Chicken fried rice 😨 was strange to find chunky broccoli and carrot in what...

We were walking by and the menu looked pretty good so we decided to give it a try. The yellow curry was very good as was the stir fry dish. The chicken satay was average - not a fan.

Not being sure what I was looking for I stopped in here and was pleasantly surprised. The quality of the meal was fantastic for the price with ample amount. It is a quick meal, boardering on fast food due to the speed of service, though the quality of food is not indicitive of this. You are able to enjoy your... More
