Came here for a BYO with friends and I think we all had a great night. The only downsides were that the portions were not as generous as many other similar quality Thai places and there was quite a delay in the food actually coming. But when it did come it was delicious! I would recommend the Pad Thai.

This popular family run Thai restaurant offers great food and friendly attentive service. Plenty of choices on the large food menu. BWYO wine but also licensed. Entrees are between $7.80 & $10.80 while mains range from $20.80. Favourites worth a look are the Chicken Satay starter, Tom Yum Goong (soup), Seafood Cashew nuts and the Sizzling Garlic Beef. Takeaways are... More

The place was busy because it only had two staff on. They coped well under pressure. The food was really good, a little on the pricier side but this isn't your average Thai place and well worth it. $91 for 4 with no drinks :)

This Thai restaurant has a huge menu which makes it hard to choose. But lots of people order sizzling garlic chicken and we understand why. Delicious. And the Red Fish Curry too was perfect. Some heat but perfect balance. Great value meal too. With rice and tea we paid less than $60 for 2 of us. They also have BYO... More

The portion were not as big as an usual Thai but very tasty and full flavoured. We really liked the spicy noodle. I would come back.

Good service and friendly with a ready smile - just what one needs after a full day. Food was very good - special mention to pad thai, prawn panang and sizzling garlic pork. My partner was raving about the spoon and fork - authentic thai utensils that adds to the thai ambiance.

Lovely food, out quick, hot and tasty. Our dinner for two including 3 beers was $94, pretty good in Ponsonby. Good service and noticed plenty of take aways going out too so obviously popular with locals also. Would recommend.

We have eaten at Thai House many times over the years. The service is always very good and the food consistent. The best way to eat is to mix and share. Three mains shared among four people always works well. They are happy to accommodate BYO.
