Service and food were both excellent. Get a few dishes to share so you can try different things! Cocktails were fun and delicious. Pay your bill in cash and then use their "Pothong" money to buy something funky in their gift store!

Great food and quick serve. Prawn with betel leave as entree is the best. Baramundi curry is very nice for main course. Thai Pothong is the best Thai Restaurant in Sydney.
