We were in the street, discussing where to go for dinner, so i suggested Thai... a lady overheard us and said we had to go to Chiang Mai Thai. She said it was the best Thai food she'd ever eaten, so we went. we were not disappointed at all. I had duck and t was AMAZING! Everyone loved their food.... More

To be honest it was a good dining experience. The food taste fantastic and staff are friendly and look after you. The lighting is not enough though.

Amazing interior and great food! This is my second time here and I would say it's the best thai place in surfers. However make sure not to order "spicy" for your salads, the paw paw salad was dammmnmmn spicy!

Really delicate flavours, authentic Thai dining and very large range of choice. Inside & alfresco balcony dining. Not to be missed. Excellent for large groups, family or romantic evening. Parking limited restaurant gets busy so booking essential

We were having trouble finding an Asian meal in Surfers Paradise that didn't include pigs trotter, tripe or other offal and was I a reasonable price range. Happened across Chiangmai Thai inside one of the mantra hotels on Palm Avenue. The ambience and service was sensational. Pagodas converted into seating and chairs carved into the shape of elephants. It is... More

Literally the best Thai Restaurant I've been too. Had the Duck Cashewnut and Coconut Rice, along with the Phanang Curry which was all amazing. The Satay Chicken was a great entree and is perfect for 2. Must also add that it appears that this Thai Restaurant brews its own beer locally on the Gold Coast, and it is really good.... More

What a wonderful setting. We sat outside under a pagoda. The crockery and cutlery are just lovely. The service from our waiter was exceptional. As a sufferer of allergies, he was very accommodating and discussed with the chef what I could have. The food was served very quickly. It was delicious. And very generous in portion. The price was reminiscent... More
