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.

I have been to this Thai Restaurant before with a girlfriend and decided it was so good that i had to take my husband. We got there early without reservation (not recommended) but it filled up very quick. I had Tom Yum soup (highly recommended👌)...and beef stir fry, my husband had chicken stir fry (so much for sharing our food🫣) and the banana fritter and ice cream (huge!!). All were very tasty and well prepared and presented. Staff lovely. I know why this place filled up quick. Do yourself a favour and try this place out. 👍More

I was looking for authentic Thai cuisine and I found it at Thai Puka. Lovely staff, spacious interior, extensive menu for both food and drinks - just great! I can highly recommend the whole fish. This is a restaurant I would visit once a week...if I lived in the neighbourhood. Also a bonus that they are open on Mondays, as a lot of businesses seem to be closed then.More

We ordered the chicken Pad Thai and fried rice , both were flavourless and bland. Don't know how they could stuff up such basic dished. However their Beef salad was fantastic and it was amongst the best we have had anywhere in Australia . That...the reason they got 3 stars instead of 1. Also friendly serviceMore

We arrived in Albury yesterday and rang to see if we could get a booking, so glad we were able to. We shared two entrees and three mains between four people, every meal was delicious. The staff were run off their feet as the restaurant...was full (school holidays), but they were still attentive and friendly. Our only disappointment is that we are leaving Albury today and won't be able to eat there again until our next trip. Highly recommend!More

I am a big fan of Thai food, and wherever I go I try it out I frequently visit Albury on business, and wanted to explore few restaurants. There were many, and after going through reviews I tried out 3 of them. I must say...that the best, authentic Thai food in town I had was at Thai Puka. Being a Thai food fanatic, I have a good feel of when it's authenticity Thai. And this place offered the best flavours, the requested spiciness and quantity. The service was very fast, and friendly which was the same in all 3 places though. Downside? Well, I'd say it wasn't the cheapest. A coconut rice, a chicken red curry and a raspberry drink cost me $36, and was approx $3-4 more than the other two places for the same meal. Not much but a fact. However, I must say it was fully worth it.More

Tonight was our first, but definitely not our last, visit to Thai Puka. The fact that the restaurant was full and some tables were filling for the second seating should attest to the fact that others agree with us: the best Thai food we've ever...eaten anywhere, and we think the price was VERY reasonable. It was obviously busy and perhaps service was slower than it might have been, but it was GOOD and very FRIENDLY service and we didn't mind a bit. There were no children there tonight, so I can't really say if kids would like it, and it is probably a bit noisy for a meeting, but it's just SO GOOD!More

The surroundings and service were just lovely - but the food wasn’t the best Thai I’ve ever eaten. The fresh rice paper rolls were quite bland, Thai fish cakes were tasty enough. The green curry with king prawns was generously studded with fat prawns but...the dish was way too sweet for my taste. Chicken Laab was tasty and nicely spicy but was not presented very well (or authentically) - a teeny, tiny wedge of iceberg lettuce, certainly not designed to wrap the laab in, was all that was on the plate. The beef stir fry we ordered was pleasant enough but more reminiscent of a Chinese-food-for-Australians dish. The wine list was compact but well priced. Value was very good but I’ll explore a little further for Thai food next time we’re in Albury.More
