The interesting thing here is this... The setting is very dull, the restaurant itself is not the best laid out and seems cheap, the food however was really great. We had great food and services well.

I have never been to an authentic Thai restaurant before, and we visited with friends. After reading so much good reviews I had high expectations but was very let down. The sushi was very good but the rest of the food was not great. I had Panang Curry and it tasted too much of lemongrass, and unfortunately it was not... More

I was very excited to go to Padbok for some Thai cuisine (as I longed for the dishes we ate in Koh Samui on our honeymoon) but cannot help but feel rather disappointed. The restaurant had a canteen-like atmosphere and could definitely do with a makeover. Our shared appetizer – Padbok Mixed Hors D'oeuvres – was the highlight of my... More

If you are looking for Thai dishes that are the real deal, this is the place. No fusion dishes in sight, and they even sell imported Singha beer. Phad thai is really good, as well as the appetizers (spring rolls,dumplings). For dessert try the fried banana and green tea ice cream. Paid parking is undercover and secure and is situated... More

Date night at Padbok Thai - the most fantastic surprise. The food was out of this world! I had the duck thai curry with pineapple, lychee and grapes - so fragrant, I enjoyed every bite and cannot imagine I will ever be able to order anything else. Hubby had Pork Panang and also enjoyed it very much. I can't wait... More

The title does not do it justice, Pad Bok Thai was amazing, the price for the food exceptional, the taste and explosion of flavours. What makes a resteraunt like this interesting is that they dont smother their food in Garlic to reveal the taste, the food and well placed spices do this for you. Inside is a little sparse and...

Almost all dishes are delicious. Even the sushi, like ikura, Padbok is the only restaurant who has. The owner herself serves you, ensuring the customer is satisfy with the food and services. Perfect!

Great place to go and reminisce about that time you went to Thailand. The food was delicious and tasted exactly as it did in Thailand. They have very spicy options too, if that's your kind of thing. Their prices are probably the best in town, but amazingly, the restaurant is usually very empty. We were the only patrons when we... More

Not the best Thai restaurants I've tried. But the service quality was so great. Our waiter was so friendly and always check if we're satisfied. The food was nice especially the fried rice but the chicken in Pad Thai was slightly overcook.

We have been coming to this restaurant since it opened and we do really love the food, prepared by a Thai chef. However, the décor has become a bit 'tired' and the staff seem tired too! Just needs a bit of a makeover I think!
