This restaurant serves some delicious thai food. So many good things on the menu that it's always hard to pick. It's small inside however they also offer take away and delivery and it came very fast.

This Thai restaurant is close to one of my main Melbourne clients and its one of his and my faves. The pad eee ew, red curry and satays are excellent. It's very small (hence name petite) so suggest booking. I'll be back again next month.

Lovely staff, big serves, incredibly flavoursome and varied menu. We love the food here. The only hitch is space so if you’re tall, it can feel squeezy.

Red Petite is close to the South Melbourne Town Hall, the home of the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM). During the term, students flock to eat in affordable places in their lunch hour so this tiny Thai cafe becomes very crowded. That's part of...More

and reds along the entire perimeter, where the whole
neighbourhood gathers for Saturday feasts. Inside the
hall, shoppers hover over the mouth-watering displays
of delicatessens and specialty food shops. Further in,
