This is an amazing restaurant. The best Thai food I’ve had in a long time. Try the Mums recipe for Spring rolls to start. Then the Pawns with Tamarind glaze is to die for, as is the Soy, ginger Salmon.

In my guidebook this was listed as an Australian restaurant but they must of recently had a change of ownership as this now serves Thai food. Food was delicious, setting great and the service was top class. You need to reserve in advance otherwise you...won't be able to get a table here. I note most of the 'negative' reviews are trolls who were turned away. Overall would recommend it to others.More

We were visiting for 2 days and went here for dinner. When we went we found out they were fully booked - we understand that and hence asked for a takeaway. But the gals even refused fir it - like which place doesn’t do takeaway!!...Even the gals at counter were rude and unfriendly - which is not a good thing for a hospitality business speciallyMore

Never have we been to a restaurant where we have been told after just 45 mins they have double booked our table and we have just 15 mins left. Where did customer service and a positive dining experience go? Looking around the restaurant there are...still free tables. I get that you need to cover as many places as possible- but really? After being asked if we were happy with everything told by the waitress that she isn’t the manager!! Would not recommend.More

Some of the best Thai food we have ever eaten, customer service was fantastic. Very busy, so ensure you make a reservation. We went after the play, and everyone without a reservation was turned away…lucky I had read these reviews and prebooked! We all loved...the food, delicious curry puffs, massaman, satay, salmon, fried rice…all fantastic meals!More

We went once and then went again. Food, flavours, service, it had it all. Even though they were busy, the food that arrived was perfectly sublime!! If you are in Strahan , don’t miss this gem.

We shared the green curry, satay and massaman. Another member of our group had the northern curry. All meals were excellent. The green curry was subly flavoured but had a good mix of chicken and veg and a nice chilli hit. Satay chicken had a...nice crispy skin. Massaman curry was divine. Rich sauce. Fat free melt in your mouth beef. I have coeliac disease and these meals were great for all of us.More

Best Mausman curry I have had. It was full due to the high tourist trade but the staff were lovely to find us a table. Very enjoyable setting.

WOW, an amazaballs meal, every mouthful popped, flaked, and sang with lightness and flavourful delight. High note with the prawn dumplings…. Well done team.

Sorry cannot help. We were there at the beginning of the 'off season' and they were trading every day. Hope they are open for you as it is a friendly place with great food.
