Finally, after 5 years of living in Cairns we have found the perfect Laksa. I asked for spicy hot too - and it was. My wife had Pad Thai and it was perfect as well - wonderful taste, seafood (prawns) were good quality. Place doesnt look much from the outside but dont let that deceive you - it is fantastic....

I have been to Thailand few times and love their food. I finally found a Thai restaurant delivering authentic and excellent Thai food with the relaxed atmosphere to go with it. Yum Yum Yum

First time visit last night having been to every place in Cairns and if it is authentic you want you must visit here. Generous portions, very well priced, gracious and knowledgable hosts and a pristinely clean restaurant. We won't go anywhere else now. Off the beaten track a bit but worth it. Thanks for a great meal.

Visiting family in the city and they took me here with some friends. It is BYO with free corkage which helped make it excellent value. We had the mixed starter, special duck/lychee/pineapple red curry, coconut rice, Pad Thai, beef with rice noodles (for our gluten intolerant), plain rice, satay. All excellent. The place was very welcoming, service friendly and fast.... More

8 of us oldies were booked in for dinner & nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful waiter. We all had something different & once again the kind waiter worked out how much rice we would need to share rather than ordering one each. My prawn yellow jackfruit curry was divine as were the whole Barramundi dishes & satay... More

I've eaten there twice recently and have not been disappointed. The service is casual but efficient, the food is tasty and served in a timely manner. I will return.

Nothing wrong with our meal but it wasn't the best Thai we ever had . The other reviews made us think it was going to blow our mind and it did not . Staff and owner where great and friendly meals where good size . I think this Thai is more original flavour to Thailand than being cooked the way... More

Thankyou for your wonderful comments. Yes our food is aimed more for original Thai than Australian-Thai as this seems to be what the majority like. Thanks for coming. Chris More
