I had dinner there and I was so disgusted the stir fry had frozen veggies and the curries were tasteless. There was no spice like I ordered. I can't believe there was frozen veggies instead of fresh ones. The prices were to expensive for what we got. Someone better call Gordon Ramsey to makeover this tired old disgusting place

The food was terrible. I had the massaman curry and it was tasteless. No flavour and no spice like we ordered. My friend said she bit into her meal and the vegetables were still frozen inside. I was so disgusted that there vegetables were frozen not Fresh. I'm not going there anymore. I'll go to Lom Talay Thai instead.

This is the oldest of two Thai restaurants in Nambucca Heads. They offer a very typical menu of all the Thai favourites offered by most such restaurants in Australia. There's nothing either exciting or innovative but this small restaurant has an intimate feel to it, the service is very friendly and the food is reasonable for the price.

Paid too much for food that was only half eaten, left with a foul taste in the mouth and feeling nauseous. This place needs to go on Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares!!! The owners should stick to a type of food that they are familiar with, it's obvious they haven't ever eaten Thai food because the taste was just wrong! It is... More

We really like this restaurant, we go weekly and haven't been disappointed. The waitress does struggle with English and the restaurant does need an update but that all adds to the charm of the place...... They are a young couple trying to "have a go"; they are friendly and just want to please the customer. Food is great - no... More

thai is my favourite food & unfortunately the smell of the 4 take away main meals tonight may turn me off forever. Couldn't even taste 1 of them from the stink. Four very hungry bellies looks like dip & olives tonight. I couldn't even give this UNTOUCHED food to a person in need!!! UNBELIEVABLE

After reading the reviews i nearly didn't try this place. Either people are giving bad reviews because they want to keep it a secret or the thai they have had is out of this world, i don't know don't care i will be coming back for more and more and more. Quality over quantity any day of the week for... More

Worse Thai I have ever eaten. We ordered with the chef upon entering however the young waitress came up twice asking if we wanted a menu after I said we had ordered. Although sweet she obviously couldn't speak very much english. If we weren't in a hurry to get back on the road we would have not finished our meal... More
