Absolutely love this place. They have the best beef Massaman curry going around. I also love their curry puffs and spring rolls. Definitely the best place to go in Kew for lovely Thai dinner out.

Good thai in the burbs. Very small place so definitely book. The chicken stir fry was very fishy so obviously some ingredients used in the sauce that wasn't listed on the menu so be sure to check if you have sensitivities to anything.

The reviews sounded good, but our take-away left us underwhelmed. The 4 Prawns in Phad Thai lacked flavour and chicken in chicken fried rice was very salty and roti was quite oily. Eating in may be worth a try next time before we decide for...sure.More

Saychol is one of the best restaurants to open in our area. Delicious food served with a smile. I wish they opened more days for lunch.

Saychol is one of the best things to happen in tha past few years in Melbourne’s inner east dining. Great Thai food carefully and consistently prepared by John and his team. Salads are particularly good and crisp. Curries are flavoursome and they serve an excellent...pad thai noodle dish. You can take your own alcohol to Saychol, which also saves you money if you’re so inclined. Being about 9 km out of the CBD and not in any of the city’s restaurant strips or Mecca’s, it’s a restaurant most frequented by locals in the know. Saychol is not a large restaurant, so my first recommendation is to book if you plan to go. It will be worth your while.More

We visited twice during our stay as was next door too our accomodation, the nights we went were not very busy but the service was great. Not too much of helicopter service. The food was fresh and amazing, my fiancée had the spicy beef and...had the right amount of spice. I had the pork belly which was amazing.Next time in Melbourne will definitely will go back.More

First time visit and we really enjoyed the meal, deciding it is definitely the best Thai in the area. Fresh and clean tasting food, nicely presented too. We loved the pad Thai with prawns and the crispy barramundi with apple and mango slaw’. We had...the sticky rice and fresh mango to go and it was yummy. Service efficient despite the fact the Restuarant was full. Definitely glad we booked and we will be back.More

This was our third visit and on each occasion the food has been outstanding and the equal of another of our favourites - Inthanon in Northcote. Great staff, service and host. Good wine list and the opportunity to byo. Menu has plenty of seafood options...and the BBQ Calamari is to die for. Absolute Boroondara gem. .More
