My first visit and definitely my last. First impressions dissatisfied as it was untidy, dark and very noisy inside.I found it needed ventilation. The chefs wore their home clothes not a good thing and the tablecloths were untidy with old torn placemats. The shock was...More

An unpretentious restaurant that lacks in atmosphere but the great food, excellent prices and friendly staff more than make up for it. Excellent authentic Thai food, well prepared, good portions and great taste!

Lovely food but what I think it's great the relationship between quantity/quality/price => just great. A meal that in other restaurants would cost you ZAR600 for two, for the same quality, at Padbok Thai costs you ZAR250!!!

If you are looking for Thai dishes that are the real deal, this is the place. No fusion dishes in sight, and they even sell imported Singha beer. Phad thai is really good, as well as the appetizers (spring rolls,dumplings). For dessert try the fried...More

Date night at Padbok Thai - the most fantastic surprise. The food was out of this world! I had the duck thai curry with pineapple, lychee and grapes - so fragrant, I enjoyed every bite and cannot imagine I will ever be able to order...More

The title does not do it justice, Pad Bok Thai was amazing, the price for the food exceptional, the taste and explosion of flavours. What makes a resteraunt like this interesting is that they dont smother their food in Garlic to reveal the taste, the...More
