A small establishment with only half a dozen tables but with a pleasant ambience. The food was well flavoured and, as least for us - their 1st sit down customers for the evening- reasonably quickly prepared. As the evening progressed, and the single waitress was...More

Yes difficult to tell whose going to turn up.. Our two waitresses are incredible so delays are usually a result of Pluny being the solo wok player and me making soups curries and entrees..because she cooks to order invividual requests. Eg "no capsicum or onion"...More

The food is cooked by an original home Thai chef and the food is very tasty. The surroundings are cramped, but the welcome is huge. We were first in at opening, but it got so busy shortly thereafter. The reasons are easy = flavoursome, authentic...More

I have dined at Pluny's at least four times in the last six months. It is a genuine family-run Thai restaurant. The food is great, and they are willing to vary the spices to your taste. The service is great, if a bit amateurish (which...More

We had the pleasure of enjoying a lovely dinner here. They were under the pump as they had staff away but the food was worth the wait. Probably one of the nicest penang chicken curries I've had. ☺ Highly recommend

We grabbed takeaway. Service was a bit scratchy- had to call out to place an order but no big deal. Food was nice- we ate it all up: Green curry chicken and ginger chicken. Can recommend.
