This place was clean, efficient and average. It wasn't the worst thai food I've had but it wasn't the most authentic. The waitress spoke very limited English and couldn't answer all of our questions but she was very friendly. Like most Montecasino restaurants, this one was VERY elaborately decorated. There is a lot going on inside. We went on a... More

So I love this restaurant. I have never had a bad meal here. It's SO good. I find it very difficult to resist the craving. They've recently had a makeover (over December). It's a smaller restaurant, perhaps not so mysterious anymore. But it's more vibey and much brighter. It's very pretty and still makes you feel a little transported. They... More

If you are into Asian food, this is THE place to eat. A huge menu offers every kind of Thai treat, and the place itself is a Thai experience, right down to the courteous serving staff and sumptuous decor. Great place for that special occasion, especially if you like this type of food.

We arrived at dinner to be waved (not escorted) in the direction of the upstairs dining area as the hostesses appeared to be engaged in a very important personal conversation. At the top of the stairs, at a small table, we encountered a large man (presumably the owner) counting his money!! After a cursory nod in our direction, he beckoned... More

We've been regulars over the years at Khai Thai. We tried them for the first time at their new location, the old venue for VaccaMatta at Montecasino. The old place had a certain tacky charm, overlooking the casino. The new location just feels like every expense has been spared, it's chintzy on a level that isn't charming - dark and... More

Went with high hopes but was sadly disappointed. The service was fine but the food was bland and no flavour or presentation. It was mostly lettuce. The Chicken salad looked like gray mince meat with a blandness I was not aware could be achieved. Not again

On arriving at the restaurant there was no one present although all doors were open. after 10min or so a person from the message place next door pitched up, he did not introduce himself but said he could make the booking....
