I love authentic, high quality Thai foods. Friends invited us for dinner at In 2 Thai last evening. Slightly out of the CBD of Cairns city where many tourists congregate for their evening meals but this little gem of a restaurant makes a twenty minute walk or five minute taxi ride well worth it. My partner and I shared a... More

This place was incredible! We walked in on a rainy night and were met by their friendly staff. We had the yellow curry, panang curry, and coconut rice. Honestly one of the best Thai meals we've had. The curry came out nice and hot, medium spicy was perfect! The portions were huge - big yummy bowls of curry to fill... More

Finally, after 5 years of living in Cairns we have found the perfect Laksa. I asked for spicy hot too - and it was. My wife had Pad Thai and it was perfect as well - wonderful taste, seafood (prawns) were good quality. Place doesnt look much from the outside but dont let that deceive you - it is fantastic....

First time visit last night having been to every place in Cairns and if it is authentic you want you must visit here. Generous portions, very well priced, gracious and knowledgable hosts and a pristinely clean restaurant. We won't go anywhere else now. Off the beaten track a bit but worth it. Thanks for a great meal.

Visiting family in the city and they took me here with some friends. It is BYO with free corkage which helped make it excellent value. We had the mixed starter, special duck/lychee/pineapple red curry, coconut rice, Pad Thai, beef with rice noodles (for our gluten intolerant), plain rice, satay. All excellent. The place was very welcoming, service friendly and fast.... More

8 of us oldies were booked in for dinner & nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful waiter. We all had something different & once again the kind waiter worked out how much rice we would need to share rather than ordering one each. My prawn yellow jackfruit curry was divine as were the whole Barramundi dishes & satay... More

I've eaten there twice recently and have not been disappointed. The service is casual but efficient, the food is tasty and served in a timely manner. I will return.
