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.

Delicious Thai food with fantastic flavours. Eating in is always best. We had the Tom Kah Kai, Sizzling Seafood and Larb Gai. Highly Recommend :)

After we were seated the waitress busied herself behind the counter, never looking up to check if we were ready to order. I finally caught the eye of a chef who warmly took our order....20 minutes later. Half the joy of dining is to feel...valued. We didn't.More

We have been to this restaurant numerous times and found the presentation 10/10 and the amount of flavour in each dish is exceptional.

We decided to have a takeaway meal from this restaurant. A very disappointing experience. We ordered Sizzling Seafood for $25.90 and Exotic Seafood for $25.90. We also had Special Fried Rice. Honestly, there were more meat items in the Special Fried Rice when compared to...the main dishes. Value for money 4/10 on main courses. We felt ripped off. This restaurant is simply not providing value for money and will ultimately be to their detriment. We will not revisit and definitely DO NOT RECOMMEND A TAKEAWAY MEAL.More

We decided to visit on a particularly chilly Friday night. We cannot complain about the food which was delicious but the restaurant was freezing. If you plan to visit on a cold day wear extra layers! Seriously! It's a shame we could not take our...time. It was so cold. The really lovely staff knew but not sure if they plan on desperately neededheating improvements!More

Authentic ...... not!! Ordered beef received Chicken! Also slow cooked lamb shanks, was tough and hardly a morsel to enjoy. The sauces were as week as dish water. Nothing authentic I say. I never write reviews but this was a pure waste of $52 not...happy.More

First time visiting here and just getting take away dinner. Great menu with lots to choose from. Very easy to order over the phone and quick to pick up. Looks like a nice set up inside and will try dining in in the future. Great...food!More

Stopped on the way home for some Thai takeaway. We have been to this restaurant before and it was good. But don't do the takeaway. The lamb curry was absolutely terrible. Three chunks of lamb thrown on some nearly dry rice. Won't be back soon.

I have always enjoyed the wonderful Thai food when I have eaten here and the welcoming and professional staff, but last night they went above and beyond to help my friend in need - the kitchen was closed but they prepared a fresh meal for...her. That was such a reflection of their attitude and kindness, we were very grateful.More

Just arrived home after a very authentic Thai night at Kwanjai Thai with my father and four of his friends (70 plus to 95 - that's them not me). All had a lovey time, the food was very tasty and the team have managed to...bring the authentic flavours of Bangkok and the rest of Thailand to Tassie. Very friendly owner and staff who display the epitome of hospitality. The second time I have been there, the fourth or fifth or more for everyone else and we will all be back. Highly recommended! Well done.More

While doing the non exciting grocery shop in Kingston this week we stumbled upon this lovely bright spot. Feeling a little peckish we decided to give it a try. We were welcomed warmly into a bright airy restaurant which was buzzing with lunchtime customers. The...menu has all the usual Thai suspects with a few nice surprises. We both ordered and sat to observe the customer traffic and the take away customers. Within minutes we were tucking into some of the most delicious Thai food we have found in Tasmania. Fragrant and as hot as we love it.. Veggies stir fried but still crispy and crispy pork which maintained a juicy interior.. (however they managed this .. I was impressed) My partner who is particularily fussy when it comes to Thai food (because he can cook a mean green curry himself) is already planning our return visit. Do yourself a favour try this place yourself.More

Kwanjai Thai from the outside looks like any other suburban restaurant, located adjacent to the Coles supermarket complex in the seaside suburb of Kingston south of Hobart. The restaurant sits alongside various fast food joints and the main car park however once inside the food...sets it apart from most other suburban eateries. The interior is clean and modern and a little non-descript. The Thai staff are welcoming, very attentive and polite. The menu is extensive featuring almost exclusively Thai dishes. There are Banquet menus, a kids menu and a special desert menu. The main menu includes the usual curry offerings, noodle dishes, stir fried items, BBQ, Duck and seafood. Our table of six chose the sizzling seafood, Lamb Shanks, Chilli Jam Chicken, Beef Curry, Red Duck Curry and a kids meal. We added Roti and Jasmine rice. The service was timely. The meal presentation was excellent, very colourful and authentic Thai. Being a BYO we bought along our own wine and were happy to pay a small corkage fee. It was Ginger Beer, Thai pink milk and Apple juice for the non drinkers/children. Main course meal prices ranged from around $20.00 to the low $30’s, very reasonable and definitely good value. We booked several days ahead, which is always recommended. Would I recommend Kwanjai Thai, very definitely. The venue is open Tuesday to Sunday for lunch and dinner. Home deliver and take away is available. It is a BYO restaurant.More

Food is so good & staff very friendly & polite. The ambiance is very comfortable within a spotlessly clean restaurant. We love Thai food & have eaten it in many countries, Kwanjai is one of the best & consistently produces mouth wateringly great dishes. I...love the Crispy Pork Belly with Chilli & Basil, Pad See-Ew, Galangal Curry, Red Duck Curry, Galangal Curry. Can't wait try many of the other dishes on the menuMore
