The service was excellent and the food tasty. The dining area has very high ceilings which means that it does take some heating and during the winter Katoomba gets very cold! The chilli air, unsympathetic lighting and vacuous dining area didn't create an intimate and romantic dining experience. Good value though!

We had a good meal here - tasty food with good portions and good service. Food arrived in good time - not too slow and did not feel rushed. BYO - wine only. Good value for money

Just an overnight stay and chose this restaurant based on reviews. Some would say service is slow but it was fine for us. Was worth waiting for the dishes we had, both entrees were good but the mains were excellent. A speciality Chork Dee Chicken was delicious and the Panang Nua Beef was great as well. We had Windowrie Estate... More

Prices were reasonable and the food seemed very authentic - only had one night in Katoomba, otherwise would definitely have gone back to taste another item on the menu.

Ate here with my friends on a weekend away. Best Thai I've had in a while. Penang curry was just got enough for me. Not too spicy, just enough to warm the mouth. Plenty of vegetarian & gluten free options as well. All of us enjoyed the meal & it is good value for money as well. Worth a visit.

We had the Massaman lamb curry and it's the best we have eaten. The lamb was most tender and the sauce was amazing and delicate. We also had the green chicken curry and we thoroughly enjoyed the sauce and the succulence of the chicken breast which normally is dry but it was very juicy. I certainly would recommend both dishes... More

We were only in Katoomba for 2 nights and this was a good choice. The service was great as was the food - the bill was reasonable and the restaurant was handy for our hotel. There was a wide range of dishes and we enjoyed all we had - would go again if we ever make it back to Katoomba.

We have been eating here for many years now and always enjoy it. The signature dish chork dee chicken is very enjoyable so give it a go! The restaurant is nothing flash but seems typical of many Thai establishments. The menu has a few GF dishes and are labled as such.

Crispy cold evening, equally as cold in the restaurant. The meal was to takeaway. The worst Thai I've had in a long while. The noodles were dry. I asked for the meal to be chili, I could see they used a chilli it was in the meal in chunks not cooked in. The best part however was they didn't even... More
