Duck curry with lychees and a side of coconut rice. I was going to have a seafood dish but the couple beside me raved about the duck. Thinly sliced and beautiful. Not sweet at all with the lychees. I asked for chilli and got a fried dish with the best oily chilli side. It's so busy here on a Tuesday... More

This is our 4th return visit. Tastefully decorated, this place provides great ambience for a suburban restaurant tucked away in a nondescript shopping strip! I rate this place in my All-Comers Top-12. Fantastic offerings. Tongue tingling taste sensations. Extremely flavoursome. Very friendly FOH staff and super-efficient kitchen. And to top it all off - this place is EXTREMELY reasonably priced... More

We had an impromptu lunch here with family members (about 12 people) adults and children, with a variety of dietary requirements. The food was delicious and very generous in proportions. Everyone was delighted with both the cuisine and the service.

The cheesy name and dismal location in a run down strip mall would lead you to believe that this restaurant wants nothing more than to be the "local Thai". Once inside, it is a comfortable room, crowded but not overly noisy (wood panelling and carpeted floors help here) with lots of brocade decoration. The entrees ($12) were the usual assortment...

A very impressive meal! I had the whole barramundi with chilli jam. I also had the Penang chicken curry. The food was bursting with flavour. The fish had crispy skin and covered with coriander and other fresh ingredients. The Penang had a great balance of flavour. I went on a Wednesday night and it was busy. Definitely worth booking. It's... More

In Centre Rd just away from the main shopping precinct is this gem of a Thai/Burmese restaurant. Fully licensed or byo wine this establishment offers the most comfortable seats in a warm inviting environment and just wait to sample the food. Second to none whether a curry,fish dish or noodles. Great starters lead the very extensive menu and the service... More

We have visited a few times now and enjoy the food. The red curry is delicious and we like to ask for it hot and spicy. The Burmese beef curry was a new dish for us and it was surprisingly delicious. Nice ambience, a little hot when busy.
