We had a family dinner organized at short notice while traveling through Ballarat. The feed was great quality with generous service from the team

My wife and I had dinner at this restaurant last night. There are many Thai restaurants in Ballarat but we decided to try somewhere different (other than Thai Sala Pavillion.) There were not many customers on a Sunday night so we were served promptly. We...chose the mixed entree and enjoyed the four small offerings although none of them was outstanding. Our two main courses were tasty but the prawn dish felt like it was heavily laced with MSG. (My lack of sleep confirmed this suspicion.) The Pad Thai was OK but nothing special. It wasn't particularly hot which was disappointing. Each of the girls who visited our table was friendly and concerned about our enjoyment of the meal. One offered to re-heat the left-over Pad Thai. Service was quite fast. The room is very large and lacks atmosphere. I must say, I am quite surprised with the high rating this restaurant has with Trip Advisor. It was average.More

We are all dining in Covid times, that does not mean that customers are treated without respect. After rudely being asked for ID the six of us were sat down. Waitress finely came to see us. Took our orders, food arrived it was ok with...good flavour. However three orders were wrong, waitress blamed the kitchen. After mains we waited for the waitress she finely came and dumped the bill and said your time is up! We took the later sitting so we didn’t have to rush our food down. I said we want dessert, she said too late time to leave. I said we really wanted dessert, the reply. Kitchen is closed! When I said why weren’t we offered dessert, the reply, we forgot. I then went to pay and the older women yelled at me, “wrong place go to the front. The six of us are foodies and we will not be back. We will head across the road where we are welcome.More

Booked and visited here for dinner, it was early and there weren't many people when we arrived. After some underwhelming entrees including some really weird spongy, fish cakes, we then waited over an hour only to be told that they'd lost our order. They said...they were on it and it would be out in 5 mins but after 10, we were still waiting. So we left, after being there for an hour and a half with a hungry 5yo. The waitress we had was lovely, but there weren't enough staff as the place filled up. Needless to say we won't be back. In short, don't waste your time and money, there are so many great places to eat in Ballarat these days.More

We ordered a veggie red curry, veggie stir-fry, pineapple fried rice and spring rolls for a takeaway meal, all of the dishes were tasty and good size portions. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Nice enough place, clean, plenty of room, attractively presented. I resent being required to supply a 100 character review.

we had a very bad time at this restaurant at dinner. I can not explain how bad and unprofessional this restaurant. food were not as the Thai cuisine and ingredients were totally meshed with too much junky source. Paid over hundred dollars and got nothing...for value dinner at tonight. Trip advisor need to reassess as soon as possible .More

At $15 the only dish I ordered - a takeaway seafood tom yum - is remarkably poor value compared to the larger sizes and cheaper prices that are available at Thai places in suburban Melbourne. At that price it should be a modest sized meal...and in Melbourne it is. It was not in this case. Very disappointing. Will not be buying from this place again.More
