Nice little neighbourhood restaurant, fast friendly service. the food is really good when you eat in - I have read other reviews about the takeaway and it just isn't the same with most dishes. I had the red curry duck, it was delicious and they put the leftovers in a dish for me to take home, no problems at all.... More

Delivery food came and found short thick black hair in food. Thats enough to put you off an already average tasting meal.

This is a large restaurant and on a Friday night one would expect it to be very busy. Actually it was quite empty which should have set off the alarm bells then. We dined with two other couples. The offerings for a banquet menu were the boring old Thai staples of fish cakes, spring rolls, etc etc so decided to... More

Friday night out for dinner with four friends, where none of us had been before. The restaurant could seat approximately 60-70 but there were only 15 diners (including us) on a Friday night? Entrees appeared to be heated frozen food and not all that enjoyable. We ordered 4 main courses which were reasonable except for the 'The Sexy Lamb' which... More

This is without question the worst Thai food in Sydney. The ingredients are mostly frozen and of poor quality. What's more it's incredibly overpriced. I have lived in Crows Nest for over a year, and there are many good restaurants in the area. This one, hands down, is the worst.

By chance we stopped near by and decided to pop in for a bite to eat. Greeting is your standard meet and greet. Nice touch with a bowl of spicy prawn crackers when you sit down. Vegetable spring rolls are very good, good flavour & texture. The Vegetarian Pad Thai was a good portion and tasty. The Crispy pork belly... More

I've shared a meal here with friends and family on a few occasions and each time have found something different and enjoyable to eat. The food is good, portions are great and the service is very good. There's plenty of choices on the menu and all your favourites are there. The restaurant is spacious and decor interesting.

This restaurant is very, very average and in a sea of restaurants on the Willougby Road strip it needs to lift its game. The mixed platter entree was probably the most edible dish on the night. The chicken and cashew nuts was full of capsicum and not much else. The crying tiger was crying out for flavour and the Barramundi... More

We come here all the time for their $10 lunch special, and every time the food has been flavourful and tasty. Recommended is the green chicken curry. Definitely visit here if you are in Crows Nest.

We always get the same things - eggplant, prawn stack, yellow curry and the duck curry - always good
