This restaurant is almost an hours drive from me (meeting friends that live on that side of town), but my gosh it was worth each and every mile. The food here was beautiful. The decor is lovely and the service was good. There was six...of us, and each of us enjoyed what we ordered. Everything went right (other than forgetting one side dish of coconut rice which came out promptly after reminding them), and otherwise it was a good experience. I got curry puffs and chew chee salmon, and both were scrumptious. I wouldn't hesitate to come back here again. You do need to search for it, as it's in a shopping complex and tucked in towards the back, but it's worth giving it a go. And once you're done eating, especially in summer, just take a minute stroll to the lake front where it's just beautiful and serene. Definitely come here if you're in the area ... or if you too have friends that live closer to it than you do, but it's a hike. It's truly worth it.More

We have dined in about 10 times and had take-away about 20+ times. Great for take-away. Dine in - as a couple we enjoy the banquet. So much food & really nice. Since it's renovation it's not overly ambient, but great as a local dinner...spot. There is nothin excessive "fancy" about the food, but it's a day to day kind of delicious and I could inhale the massaman beef curry & the satay dipping sauce!! Delicious.More

We weren’t impressed previously so didn’t go back for a couple of years and we are glad we went back. We had the banquet. The food was lovely particularly the Kari Curry and Fresh Ta Krai. They weren’t overly spicy even though we requested spicy....Medium at best but lovely flavour. Rice was a little disappointing but my partner said he was happy to have it. Service was good especially as it was in the second night they were open for dine in after COVID restrictions were relaxed. We felt very comfortable with the temperature checks, amount of allocated, availability of sanitiser etc. definitely not long some restaurants and cafes I walked past earlier in the day. We will definitely go back.More

This quaint Thai Restaurant is tucked away nears the surrounds of Patterson Lakes. The food is magnificent and authentic Thai. We ordered a variety of dishes and none disappointed us. The restaurant decor creates a wonderful atmosphere that is commensurate with the food that they...serve. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a quality dining experience.More

We booked a week in advance a dinner for 4. We didn’t leave a recorded message but spoke directly to a young lady who took our booking down. So we arrive for dinner on Friday 10th at 7pm to find the restaurant closed.. no phone...call , just a sign apologising. Obviously something catastrophic must have happened, but how about a courtesy call to those who had made bookings. UnacceptableMore

We had a family dinner at this quaint venue. The restaurant is neat and well looked after. We ordered the soft shell crab starter and fried calamari starter. The calamari was good but the crab was bland and tasteless barring the sweet sour sauce accompaniment....Both mains were really good. We ordered the red curry and green curry. They were tasty and authentic.More

Ordered two soups for home delivery, both arrived half full. After a quick phone call we received two more full soups that were perfect in flavour and quantity. The chicken Pad Thai was equally as satisfying!

I’ve been to Kun Yao around 3 times now and they haven’t failed to impress me each time. I’m a massive fan of their food, waiters are really nice and the food is also nice. Although sometimes it can be a bit of a wait,...I don’t mind I enjoy there food a lot. Would 10/10 recommend to go and try there food. Hope this helps you decide!More

If you love a Thai curry I would not recommend this place... I have to say the entrees were very very good if not for these I would have given it a 2 star. How ever I don't eat Thai food for the entree I...love a Thai curry. These were very sweet , they are quite thin ( waterry) and the difference between a panang and a red duck was hard to find. There is another Thai restaraunt around the corner I would recommend that place instead. If you are looking for a authentic Thai curry move on, if you like your "touristy" food court type currys then you'll love it here.More

When you walk in, it is quite a classy looking restaurant but without the classy prices. Staff was very friendly and helpful, I asked for a good table and they certainly obliged, I could see everyone walking by and was out of the area of...the door opening and closing. The food is delicious and plenty of it. I had sweet and sour fish fillets which was massive, I couldn't eat it all and they gave me the rest to bring home. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their choices but we had no room for sweets. Would definitely recommend.More
