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.

We've been to this restaurant twice recently, on nights out to see shows in Cairns, with my (quite fussy) mother. She enjoyed her meal on both occasions which means that Cafe Thailand has become our go-to eatery for dinners out with Mum. My husband and...I are vegetarians and the restaurant was able to accommodate our requests for no oyster or fish sauce to be added to our food. Our meals were flavoursome and the prices were very reasonable, especially considering the restaurant's location is so close to the esplanade.More

Not a bad feed here actually, only the second place I wasn’t followed along with the steak place the water bar and grill! I could actually sit there and take the time to enjoy a meal whilst spending my hard earned without someone being put...up to being smart or following me. Simple things like this don’t go unnoticed! Good portion size and very filling.More

I love this restaurant and every time I am in Cairns, I make sure I eat here. I had the Beef Massaman Curry and it was, as always, delicious.

The staff was attentive, friendly and efficient. Our meals arrived quickly and both were very good. We would definitely eat here again. It's not fine dining but provides good food at a reasonable price.

The staff provided excellent service - warm, welcoming and efficient. However, the food was VERY bland and was reminiscent of a reheated product from a fast food outlet. The Curry puffs were virtually tasteless and very greasy and our Thai Curry main courses (we ordered..."mild" just to be on the safe side) were almost tasteless with absolutely NO vestige of curry/chili taste, I will not return.More

visited cafe thailand on a wednesday night as agroup of eight adults. we were quickly shown to a table and that is where the service ended.after about 15 mins we asked the waiter if we could order to which he waved his hand in acknowledgement....he then proceeded to take the drinks orders from two other tanbles that had come in after us - we had not had a drinks order taken. 5 mins later he returned with their drinks and then proceeded to take their meal orders - all whilst we were still waiting.it was at this point that we got up and left. clearly he was not interested in the $300 or so that we would have spent as eight hungry/thirsty adults. avoid it like the plague if you actually want to be fed!More

Stopped here mid week for a light dinner- absolutely wonderful meal and the service was fabulous. It was a busy place filled with locals and tourists. We got the pad see ew, Thai green curry and coconut rice. The curry was super creamy (maybe too...creamy?!) but the flavour was delicious. The wait staff were next level, friendly and quick.More
