This is a popular Thai restaurant in the northern suburb of Mt Hawthorn. It gets busy during weekends. Booking ahead is recommended. Generally, the food is reasonably authentic although several dishes have been toned down to suit local tastes. Take Pad That for instance. Being a regular visitor to Thailand and familiar with Thai dishes, the Pad Thai served here contained broccoli. I haven't experienced it in Thailand. I am assuming it is a variation to suit local taste. The service was professional and outstanding despite the crowd, and food ordered was delivered in good time. We have had dinners on several occasions and will continue to patronise it.

We were taken by friends who talked this place up….we noticed that the menu said “all our dishes are served medium hot”. I have to tell you that it was all only OK, no trace of heat or significant taste in the chewy chicken I had and my wife was initially served with the wrong dish. All very noisy and we came to the conclusion this was simply not the place for us.

Can’t understand where the reputation comes from, bland food served, at best, adequately is the best I can say.

This is the 3rd time eating at this restaurant with friends and the food is great,must try the soft shell crab ,the pork belly and there pad Thai is really good.the service this time wasn't as good I think because they are so busy they need to get some more wait staff on the floor.
Oh and have the sticky rice with mango for dessert,nice and refreshing after the meal.

This is a nice restaurant offering great food, cost of dishes was a little more than we expected.
Busy place and very noisy, 2 of us it was hard to have conversation.
Galloping Horses (Mar Hor) entree as very nice, tom yum soup as expected, green curry main was lacking many snake beans and very runny sauce. Pad Prik King Goong also lacking many veges and coconut rice was rather expensive per serve.
