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.

Cheap eats, Great Thai food, big menu, lots of locals and lots of take aways. Small restaurant not many tables, quick turnover. Not licensed. Authentic Thai. Flavoursome food as hot or mild as you wish. reasonable prices. Busy atmosphere.

This quaint little resturant was awesome. The service was excellent and the food even better. Authentic Thai you would have in Bangkok. Delicious. would definitely return here on our next visit to Cairns. Loved the decor too! Make sure you book as it was really...busy and don't forget to bring your own alcoholic beverages!More

We happened to come across this wonderful place our first night in Cairns. The food was so tasty and we walked out very happy customers, so happy in fact we went back again the next day and tried something new and because we loved the...atmosphere and the staff so much we went back for our third and final night. We didn’t want burgers or fish and found this delightful little place to satisfy us for our visit. Highly recommendedMore

We have visited this small Thai restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. We have tried different Thai dishes and found each were prepared quickly and tasted exquisitely. The Pad Thai and chicken with cashew were especially delicious. The crumbed fried oysters are to...die for!More

We were visiting Cairns, after exploring the Esplanade and finding most places to eat were only offering burgers, we decided to try a street back and found several good lunch options. We chose IMM Thai cafe. Menu has good, order and lay at the counter....We chose to share a dish, Penang curry with seafood and jasmine rice, we were asked how spicy we wanted the curry, we chose medium, which was a good choice. Our food arrived promptly, it was a good serve and well presented. The curry was delicious. Good food and service and reasonable prices, highly recommend this restaurantMore

Busy little café, well organised – select, pay, sit & eat and your food is served in a timely manner, which the bulk of the food must be prepared well in advance to come out so quick with the amount of people they are serving....The food is very oily and greasy and not very pleasant to eat. The small piece of lemon just does nothing to cut through the grease. Both dishes we ordered Chicken Pad Thai & Beef Pad See-Ew were both very greasy and you could just not get the greasy coating from inside your mouth.More

Authentic Thai food. We ordered Chicken Larb; Kra Paw ( Chili basil) and Penang. All superb. Other recommended dishes include the papaya salad and of course Thai milk tea.

Absolutely awesome food. Quick service, so worth the wait if you have to line up for a table. Large servings, so put 20c in the jar for a takeaway container for remaining rice and main course.

We were just casually passing by at lunch and were hungry. It's basic, but serves excellent Thai food not dumbed-down for Australian tastes. Later passing by in the evening, we saw a long line of people outside waiting on the footpath. This was a good...sign.More

I walked past this small shop coming out of my hotel. Very busy so I thought that was a good sign. Ordered a pad see eiw and sat down to wait. Food came so quickly and it was one of the nicest I’ve ever had....It was so good I came back the next day and ordered a park prik chicken with cashew. Again, fast cooking and super tasty. Very cheap (half the price of my hotel’s room service) and far tastier!More

We ordered takeaway: stir fried vegetables with seafood. The flavours were delicious, the serving of vegetables was generous and varied but the additional portion of seafood was small. Not unreasonable, considering the low cost.
