The restaurant has a handy location right in town and is easy to get to with parking around. Having been so spoiled with Thai food, cooked by Thai friends over many years in Sydney, eating at any Thai restaurant has its challenges. We felt that the food here was nothing spectacular and rather pedestrian although the service was attentive.

Worst Thai I ever tasted. Entree money bags etc were frozen jobs you can buy at the supermarket, pad thai was very mushy and only tasted like sugary dessert,no sweet,sour,hot etc at all. Rice with duck tasted ashy and was inedible. I told them I didn't like my meal and they offered to cook something else which I politely said... More

We had a family weekday dinner here, the place was busy with a few large tables. Very noisy and not much atmosphere. Red curry was nicely seasoned but personally I don't think frozen vegetables belong in my curry, I expect the fresh stuff so was disappointed. Husband had sweet and sour chicken which was very bland. Perhaps it was due... More

Amazing service, the staff are very welcoming and if you haven't booked (which we didn't) they try their best to fit you in even if it's a full house! They always came around asking us if we were ok and if we enjoyed our meal, we even heard someone forgot to order a dish and they ordered it straight away... More

Pimarn has a lot going for it. Number one is the hostess who greets you when you arrive and all the staff actually are super friendly and efficient. I have always had great service at Pimarn on Rathbone street. The food is good. The peppercorn curry is to die for, you must have a strong stomach (which I dont) but... More
