I've been coming here for a few years now, having tried many, many thai restaurants in Sydney and even Thailand I would say this one is the best! Every dish has so much flavour and the service is incredible. All staff are so friendly and hospitable, I will continue to come here with friends and family. Thanks Thai Patong!

Attentive smiling wait staff and a colourful fun atmosphere make this a good night out. The food is very good, without being exceptional we thought.
