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.

Such a friendly, jovial host and front of house staff! I had beef salad and friends had Ginger chicken, after we had shared some spring rolls. Prompt service, everything was beautifully cooked and presented.

I hate to give poor reviews but unfortunately cannot say we enjoyed our meal at all. This was not like any classic Thai food I've ever eaten. Fish cakes were like rubber and tasteless! The Green Curry was meant to be medium hot but was...blazing hot, we can tolerate Hot spicy food but this was overkill and not enjoyable at all. Way too sweet for a Green curry too. Tom Yum Soup with Prawns was exceptionally sweet, it was like someone had forgotten how many tablespoons of sugar was put into it. Prawns were overcooked. Pork Larb was meant to be medium hot but once again blazing hot and way too sweet. The minced pork was stewed in juices and grey in colour instead of stir fried to give colour and rendered taste. I've worked in Thai kitchen and know what classic Thai food looks and taste like, unfortunately I cannot say this was enjoyable at all. We were very disappointed given the reviews on Trip advisor. Advice to Thai Coins staff lay off the sugar, be mindful of the amount of chili, the cook time of prawns and watch not to stew the meat.More

Simple Take Away order of Pad Thai and Thai Beef Salad. Ordered them Medium heat for a bit more spice. Pad Thai was SO HOT it looked like they had dumped the dried chilli jar in it and thrown in a cup of sugar syrup...(SO SWEET) for good measure. Inedible. Thai Beef was grey braised fatty beef. Binned both. Sorry guys no excuse to hear are simple dishes.More

After ordering our meals we waited for an hour, the waitress then explained they had run out of chicken. All our meals included chicken. Still charged us for 2 beers. 🙁

My husband and I were up in Cairns on a weekend trip and decided to check out Thai Coins.... so glad we did. It is away from the main streets in Cairns maybe a 7min drive but totally worth it, the staff and owner are...so friendly and lovely. we ended up going to eat there twice and the food was so yummy and full of flavor. We will be back for sure!More

Great Pad Thai and duck curry! Takeaway Pad Thai is a challenge but they nailed it. Pleasantly surprised by the balanced sweet/ salty/sour flavours. Mr G, a tough critiquer of curry gave a firm thumbs up to the duck with red curry.
