Proudly claims that is the 2nd best thai restaurant in australia. Not far of the mark in my opinion. Yummy thai food and a great spot to bring your vegan friends as well.

The food her is really nice and fresh. Make sure you make a booking this place as it can get really busy.

Hands down the best Thai food we’ve eaten in Australia. Waitresses were lovely too. Choochee whole barramundi was a standout. Nicely spiced but not too hot to take away flavour of everything. A must visit when in Carlton.

Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way

Not sure Vasillios. I don't drink alcohol, so sometimes I forget about looking at this option. Maybe give them a call. Regards. 😃
