Some of the best Thai food I have tasted. I was most happy with some good vegetarian options. Could not fault friendly and helpful service. Food well presented, good portions and great flavours. Very happy to recommend and to return.

All the boxes are ticked, the Service, food and location, you can't really go past this establishment. The lunch specials are such good value, under $10 for an amazing Thai dish. The owner is just lovely which has meant our family just keeps going back. Highly recommend the calamari and satay chicken. Please keep up the amazing vibe staff!

Went there for Boxing Day tea - had HOT chilli prawns - they were great, the place was very busy but worth waiting for.

busy - school holidays - coped well with rush - had previously well reviewed for lunch, and dinner just as good - Bill and his team scurried around competently and cheerfully - funnily enough a new asian restaurant up the road a few hundred metres had people waiting on footpath but there was still seating available and wondered initially if...

My husband and I drive about an hour for this Thai. The man running the show is always friendly and makes the effort to have a chat. The food is always fresh and beautiful.

A good selection on real thai food and the chef makes a real effort to source the true ingredients and add genuine Thai flavours. Lovely alfresco dining or take-away. Service was great. The meals are very generously and we could have easily shared dishes instead of ordering one each. Highly recoomended if you want the real deal.

Our family enjoyed the lunch specials last Friday and were impressed with the value and great service. We ordered the $8.90 noodle special and were surprised by the large servings and great taste. Highly recommended and will return.

This is my 1st ever poor review. This was honestly the most awful Thai food ever. We actually threw it away. Old vegetables, burnt black and noodle & rice dishes totally overlooked and stodgy. The satay was powdery like it was from a packet. A waste of money - hope we don't get sick. It honestly tasted like reheated food.

This is a disappointment for us and customers to read. The chef and I were called away overseas at short notice to see a terminally ill relative. We could NOT get a temporary chef to fill in and our assistant cook took over in our place, ALONE with NO assistance except for the dishwasher who has limited cooking skills. Unfortunately... More

I was looking for a Takeaway meal whilst walking along the main street in Coolum Beach. A few people eating outdoor so checked out the menu. Settled on a Pad Thai Chicken and it was ready within 15 minutes. Very tasty and a generous serving.
