Another delicious evening, this is my restaurant of choice for Thai in Airlie. The satay chicken is so delicious, lots of chicken, heaps of fresh crisp vegetables and the satay flavour packs a tasty punch with a nice hit of heat. The view from the balcony is worth a visit in itself. Always made to feel very welcome, had a... More

Airlie Thai is situated right in the heart of Airlie Beach. It possesses top quality views. The food was mid standard for Thai food. The staff were marvellously friendly. A tad overpriced.

Service very poor,waited a while for order to be taken. Had two entrees,very average if that,mains were awful. Went here two years ago,food was very nice. Won't be going there again. Too many other options in town to waste money here.

We ordered the Sizzling garlic prawns and Jasmine (non sticky) rice. We were very surprised how fast it arrived at our table, almost like they were lurking in the kitchen waiting for an order. Sizzling plate means sizzle, not warm water. Everything had that boiled taste except for the prawns, they were tasteless. The only flavor was the salty minced... More

We went here for dinner. The service was great, the food was tasty. We had curry puffs, duck red curry and a chilli beef dish. My biggest complaint is that the wine list is pretty thin and not a good selection. They do offer BYO with a corkage fee, so I would recommend that if you want a good wine... More

We were here during the Whitsunday festival and sat right on the balcony as the fireworks were going off outside. It was the best seat in the house and a great place to eat in Airlie. There wasn't a great amount of options on the menu and my order tasted different to any Thai I had before. It had a... More

Although not visible from street level this place is definitely worth a trip up the stairs Very accommodating to my Gluten free partner. The Red Curry & Pad Thai were both delicious & very generous serves. Service was a little bit slow.

The staff is fast and serviceminded, however if you're looking for authentic Thai food, this is not the place. The food is ok, but even the most spicy dish ordered, was quite weak. But the food is plenty and served quite fast, so if this is the criteria, the view from the terrace is quite nice.

5 vegetarians, a couple with various allergies, and these people sorted us out perfectly! The woman serving us knew which dishes had fish sauce already in them, and which could be made properly vegetarian. As a result we ate amazing and delicious Thai food. Spicy and flavoursome. Excellent!
