Finding good Thai food is not easy. Finding a sensational Thai restaurant in a small suburb such as Bargara is an unexpected surprise. We will certainly return, as this is one of the best Thai meals we have experienced in Queensland. Try the chef's special spicy pork mince - it is a treat for chilli lovers, but is all about...

There's no question this is the best Thai in the Wide Bay. It's authentic but the owners are also savvy enough to accommodate a more western palate if need be. The Thai Red Duck curry is the best I've had, and I've had plenty. We've dined in before but prefer to take away. It's fast and you can call ahead.... More

I eventually found it on their menu and placed... More

We ordered a range of Takeaway dishes from Red Chilli Thai for our family while holidaying at Bargara. Delicious. Great size meals & authentic flavors. Massaman Beef was amazing - tender melt in your mouth beef and a complex mild curry sauce (kids loved it too). We really loved their Satay Chicken too - definitely not from a jar! The... More

We had an exceptional dinner here on a very busy night. Food and service was of the highest quality and generous servings as well. Poor wine list but beer goes best with Thai anyway
