I could see this place was popular with CBD lunch goers so after checking out the menu I was in. Went with the pork belly and rice. Delish, fresh and well balanced.

Met up with a friend for a lunch catchup. I decided on a Chat thai and decided on the bain marie selection. Two dishes with rice, so choose a fried spicy fish fillet and beef massaman. Prepay first and then the lady at the bain marie will serve you once you hand over the chit. The meal was very enjoyable... More

Super delicious Thai food where you might least expect it! There were plenty of vegan and gluten free items and the staff was knowledgeable. Everything was full of flavor and fresh.

We found a table here on a busy Saturday night. Good dumplings, decent dumpling soup, outstanding red curry with duck & fried squid. Huge menu and lots of drink and non-alcoholic options as well. Great buzzy spot if you're in the mood for solid Thai! Word of warning that there's a prawn shortage so several menu items weren't available but... More

Stumbled across this place when looking for another restaurant. Service and food were outstanding. And service was us know too. They didn't have a table for two as it was busy so We were offered seats on a larger table with others which was fine. Food was fresh and the drinks were cold. We paid around $70 for 2 drinks...

This feels somewhere between a restaurant and fast food. There is always a queue, so sometimes they seat you with other people. The menu is extensive but as others have noted, not all traditional Thai dishes are on it. Still there's plenty of good items to choose from, and you should consider designing your own dish as I did (see... More
