Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Walked up here from South Brisbane. It is small, unfussy, basic and just brilliant. The service is great and the food was really really good. It was so busy and we loved it here.

Wanted to try lunch found this place. Sat inside. Ordered a veggie and tofu. It was ok. Bit expensive for the amount. Chairs seemed too low as eating out of this huge bowl was hard to reach. But the main reason I would never go...back was the incredible deliberate noise. The kitchen is open and pots banging non stop. But the woman running the place was a loud Asian woman with a booming voice. Yelling out to customers instead of going up to talk to them. Greeting passers by in an elephant Thai voice. I couldn't wait to finish and get out. My friend and I could hardly hear each other talking over this totally unnecessarily loud woman's screeching voice. My ears were hurting and I was truly angry. A lunch ruined. I said to my friend we really should have gotten a table outside.or gone somewhere else. Going to West End Boundary street area traumatised me for a long time but thank God I've found better quiet cafes to dine in.More

Excellent Thai meal. A group of 8 friends, drink and food service was excellent- perfect. Jip led the team and was bubbly and super friendly. Highly recommended. All meals were exceptional. Ordering via Ipad or in person was easy and quick. Great value as well.

I lived in Highgate Hill until recently & used to regularly order Thai from Gala via Uber Eats. I also booked a table & dined in with my friend Katie when she was here from Sydney. The food is excellent & the dine in service...was fantastic. Slow cooked massaman beef & spring rolls for starters - yum! This is authentic Thai food & the business is owned/run by Thai people I believe. The hardest part was finding parking on a Saturday night but we succeeded eventually!More

Having eaten here many times I can say the quality of every dish is of the highest standard with amazing flavours always. The consistency of the dishes is always available and the service outstanding. Majority of my dining experiences have been for lunches with a...few times for dinner.

Thumbs up to Yip the owner. This place have amazing authentic Thai food. We recommend the duck tam as we get takeaway every fortnight and enjoy a wine/beer while waiting. The staff are attentive and know us by name. The service and food is phenomenal....If you are in West End I do recommend this place .More

Delicious Thai and Asian food with lots of vegetarian and vegan choices. When they say spicy dish they mean spicy unlike many restaurants where you can hardly taste the spice. The food is great and well priced. Very popular with locals. We will be back...to try more dishes on the menu.More

Brilliant service, fast, attentive and very friendly. Great selection of dishes - took forever for me to decide. Great ordering service, the tablet made it easy and saved the wait staff coming back and forth to take orders, instead they could concentrate on service delivery....Will be back for sure.More

We were greeted by a friendly waitress who quickly made us comfortable in the outdoor section next to a heater and offered throws if we started to feel chilly. She ensured we had checked in and wore her mask correctly. The starters of Chicken Satay...Skewers and Spring Rolls arrived at the same time as our drinks and they were delicious. BYO There were also many good choices for vegetarians, however we ordered the Crispy Pork Belly and Kai Lan, Duck Curry, Slow Cooked Massaman Beef and Duck Tam. Each of the menu items had hotness levels depicted for taste which I really appreciated. Every single dish was unique and well seasoned, making this a definite favourite to return to.More

We visit Gala Thai at least once when we are in Brisbane. It has become our favourite Thai Restaurant in Brisbane. Ask for the food cooked to your taste by adding a comment to the order on the tablet or talk to person, and the...chef will accommodate your wishes, (like green Paw Paw salad to your taste or not to add ingredients you don't like). BYO wine is a bonus.More
