Food was fresh and hot. Great if you love Coconut cream. Most dishes had a sameness about them. Service was underwelming.

We had booked a table. But when we turned up no booking there. They found us a table right away. Food was yummy, nothing outstanding, just normal Thai food. Appeared short staffed so tables weren't cleared as patrons were leaving. a very messy looking restaurant but they did tidy up as the restaurant emptied out.

Dined here last week with my family. We had dined here lots and always find the food great. Are favs are the guri puffs - yum. The servings are generous so much so we always end up taking it home. Food is tasty with a good variety.

We were recommended to go to Thai Talay, which is situated on the Hheathcote Estuary, and so we went in early to catch a bite to eat and catch up at the end of the day. . The first thing that I saw, was an advert for a manager, which to my mind was not a good look on the... More

This restaurant is quite a drive from where I live but for excellent Thai food, it's well worth the drive. The food is fresh, clean and delicious. Waits are never long. Awesome atmosphere. Friendly, helpful staff. Yum!
