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 were greeted by Yai who was so accommodating. We had the Pad See Yu and green chicken curry...the servings were huge and the price average reasonable. The food was great and we had to takeaway some. I would recommend this restaurant highly.

Dropped in for a quick takeaway. This is some of the best Thai cuisine you will find outside of Thailand! Absolutely delicious!

Ordered takeaway, sat outside, but in view of staff. After about 30 minutes went inside, noticed a take away sitting there. Made eye contact a couple of times, but it wasn’t busy so I assumed it wasn’t mine. About 10 minutes later she picks it...up and hands it to me. I’m like really? Walk back to my hotel room, half the order is wrong and of course it’s cold. Only saving grace was the fish cakes were nice.More

The green curry was curdled and did not have much flavour. The Pad Thai had too much sauce and no lemon. The chicken sticks were nice and peanut sauce tasty. The coconut rice was bright yellow and did not taste like coconut at all. Good...size portions but unfortunately I would not buy it again.More

After waiting 30mins (had checked after 15 minutes too) I questioned why it was taking so long and pointed out that people after me had been served their food the woman finally admitted that she had given my order to someone else. By this time...it was nearly 7:15pm on a Wednesday night, and she expected me to wait while they actually went and cooked my long awaited food with no apology or discount for the massive stuff around. I got my money back and left. I regret not finding out who she gave my food to and asking why they accepted an order that wasn’t theirs. Time to find another Thai, they keep increasing their prices so they are no longer cheaper than any other Thai restaurant in town, prices have gone from $13.90 to $17.50, it’s not worth going here anymore. Plenty of other places in town to go to, would not recommend this one anymore.More

Excellent great tasting Thai food. Had our 3rd takeaway meal from the Edmonton outlet which was very good indeed. Ordered 4 dishes, Thai curry Puffs, Satay Chicken skewers, Tom Yum Soup with prawns and Thai Beef salad. We were not disappointed with any of the...dishes here. The food was very tasty and not too sweet or too spicy like some other Thai restaurants in Cairns, just as we like it! Will be back for more - thank you Edmonton store.More

Great food and heat was just as asked for, ie hot meant hot. A refreshing change to hot meaning mild. Friendly service, good prices.
