This place is my go to for Thai in Cairns. They're usually very busy - with good reason! The best Khai Thom Kha (chicken galangal coconut soup) and the chicken cashew is heaven!

Ordered #7 (cannot spell it) on the lunch special for $13.90 which is a Crispy Pork Belly on rice. It also comes with a soup. Meal was outstanding! And service was fast. Add a Coke Zero and total came to $16.90 Will be back for sure.

Ordered delivery while staying in Cairns and was very pleased with the food. Quick delivery for a few dollars more and was very happy overall. We will definitely order from here again!

Great flavours, but the take away box was not even half filled. Ordered 2 stir fry noodle dishes. Very disappointing and very measly servings. And to be charged $5 for delivery and minimum order of $40. Meal was worth $20. When we called they weren't even interested in talking to us

Lovely service at this quaint restaurant. It seems quite popular. They have such a range on their menu it was hard to choose but it's great value for money. You get so much food! My noodles were delish and satisfied my Thai craving. When they're busy there is a little bit of a wait but that is understandable.

Fantastic food, truly. Mumma is the best in Cairns. Well worth the drive to North Cairns. Cost is usually below $40 per head with heaps of take home. 30 odd choices for menu fav's or give them notice and anything is available. ....If you want "Pet", (spicy) you'll get it here...

We found this place walking back home from the grocery store and we were pleasantly surprised by how great and authentic tasting it was. We ordered the pad thai, pad sew, and spring roll dishes and they did not disappoint. When we got home the next night from a hard day of canyoning, we bailed on going out for dinner... More

My son took us back here after our first visit last year. We love it. The menu is extensive and offers exciting choices that I just don't seem to get our local Thai. Food was fresh and delicious. Nice staff who offered containers for our leftovers. Highly recommended.

We ate here twice, once before we departed on a dive trip and then we came back again with some friends from the dive trip for another meal (8 of us in total). The food is awesome and service pretty good. This is a BYO so you can bring your own beer / wine etc., and it was very pleasant... More

I am just sorry it took me so long to add a review for this fantastic place. I frequent it quite often and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent plentiful and well priced. You would be hard pressed to find a better lunch special anywhere.
