Most Thai restaurants in Canberra have been localized in taste. They are not authentic to Thai people. However, this place is one of the best places in ACT and NSW, and probably the best in Canberra. As a Thai, I can guarantee the food here is authentic Thai. As for Pad Thai, this one is the second best I have... More

Amazing food! It's like I'm back eating in Thailand! Great prices and good size servings. If you haven't been before definitely worth a visit.

After reading great things about this place and being someone who loves Thai food I thought I would give it a go. Entree was Satay sticks which I did not like, the satay sauce was tasteless. Main we had red curry chicken, this was ok and we had stir fry chicken in satay sauce, this dish I thought had no... More

I am quite a fan of Pad Thai and have tried upwards of about 15 different places in Canberra. Thip's comes a very close 2nd for quality and flavour, but if we compare with price as well as Thip's is #1. The Pad Thai was $12 and absolutely delicious. Service was average but they were incredibly busy as people know... More

Thip and her husband have been running this business for more than 20 years. I remember eating here when I first arrived in Canberra. I am one of many fans who return week after week for delicious home style cooked Thai dishes. The restaurant is small and located in the Belconnen Churches centre close to the mall and opposite the... More

Really authentic Thai food. Thai restaurants in Canberra are everywhere, but this is the only one I have found that doesn't "Australian-ise" there food. Spicy, fresh, authentic. I travel from the southside just for Thip's, it's the best. If you are looking for somewhere with ambiance this probably isn't the place for you.

Everyone is correct in saying the decor is shopfront with plastic chairs. But the food is very nice and probably the best in Belconnen and possibly north side that I have tried. Good for a quick feed, but is very busy fat lunch time. Will go back as they ran out of beef with basil and chilli! One small and... More

I have been coming to Thip's Thai since 2008 and it has never disappointed. Yes, the setting is basic & outdated but the food is in a league of its own. Always fresh, authentic and full of flavor, Thip and Deng never fail to deliver on service and quality. Hidden away in the concrete jungle that is the Churches Centre,... More
