Reviewed 13 April 2017

Since my last visit with an avarage PhaThai, I been there at least five times for lunch.
Every time 10 out of 10.
I had Thai basil, chilli chicken, dry curry, crispy pork and crispy chicken. I prefere the pork over the chicken.
Always fast friendly service, sometimes a bit hard to find a spot to sit but for $ 13.50
I will take that risk any day. You have to get the food from the counter and bring empty plate back.
Real hole in the wall thai food experience at its best!
May I should not wirite this review and causing more chair shortage.

Value for money and really tasty, popular with the locals. Fast service and customer service was fantastic.
Love the fact that the lemon grass , chilli and lime kaffier was prominent in the dishes as that's what good Thai food is about

After reading here, how sensational their Pad thai is, I ordered with seafood for 13.90!
Generously portion with enough seafood in it. I know seafood Pad thai not what Thai would order.
The two mussels been tuff and the squid was not far behind. The four large, peeled prawns been nice. Large junks of egg, never had it that way, was pleasant surprise.
Overall it was good but I will order other dishes there.
Suggestion! May they lift the price to 15.90 and do Prawn only Pad thai with 8 prawns.

It's easy to see why this place is so popular - tasty fresh meals, generous portions, efficient friendly service and it's probably cheaper than eating at home! Take your own wine (and wine glasses), sit out on the footpath and watch the world go by.
