We do a lot of Thai and this one was a little dismal food wise. It's actually a very nice venue. One of the nicest you'll see anywhere in Oz.... All the food arrived within 1-2 minutes ! I've never had food arrive that fast anywhere. This tells me it was all preprepared and just served up with minimum re... More

We ordered a couple of stir fries and a curry plus steamed rice to takeaway. The curry was watery and lacked flavour. The rice was not well cooked. The stir fries were only slightly better. We won't go back there

Terrible service and terrible food when we visited last night. Meat was overcooked and tasted from a frozen packet. The wine tasted like cask wine! The coconut rice was even terrible! Would not waste your time and we will be letting everyone know of our bad experience. $150 later- how ridiculous, we ended up down at McDonald's for double cheeseburgers!

When the food came I thought I was a contestant on candid camera. The first asian restaurant I have ever visited which is incapable of cooking noodles. The "food" here is subpar camping fare. Comically awful.

They always deliver authentic Thai. Chicken satay is fabulous as an entree and the Mussaman beef curry is delicious as a main. Much more to choose from. Been there many times and never had a bad meal.

Red curry had a strange taste. Sweet and sour wasn't like we've had in other Thai places. Tofu with cashew nuts was ok but also somehow a bit strange. Limited Thai options in Wangaratta...

Went here last night to get take away..not too late, about 8pm.... (As other Asian restaurant closed). Young girl at counter did not know difference between THAI or CHINESE dishes. Not her fault. Eventually got a special fried rice..some small 'fish cakes' with a dipping sauce as an entree type dish..and also a 'stir fry'. When we got home a... More

Very disappointing. The soup came out like brine and, when we complained came out like dishwater - we recognised the same chicken pieces and they had clearly tipped some out and added water! Pad Thai was like noodle soup and the green curry thin and one dimensional. Every dish had the same, pre-cooked chicken that had been warmed up in... More

Fast service, bizarre meals...in texture and taste. We got pad thai, massamum curry, coconut rice and curry puffs. The pad thai noodles were like fettuccine pasta...there was barely any vegetables and it tasted very bland. The beef in the curry was not as tender as I've had from other thai restaurants (and I've had a lot) and the potato tasted... More
