This place was once an absolute favourite of mine. Hadn't been for a couple of months and was shocked at the poor quality of the food. Have now found out that the old owners have sold. Previously the food was well priced, so flavorsome and the service was excellent. Tonight I did not want to pay for my food it... More

I've been a regular here for so many years, tamarind fish and green curry chicken is the greatest dish. Hoping to try it again when I'm back next.

Devastated! Ken and co of Oriental Sprirt have sold. We were shocked to hear the news and tried to not be bias when eating, knowing it was under new management. The new staff were trying their best to be friendly however the food just isn't as good. The food isn't up to the old standard. Sad to say that tonight... More

Came here last night while on business and we were not disappointed. The meals were served quickly and tasted so fresh. Authentic flavours and at VERY reasonable prices. Dinner for 4 and a couple of beers cost us only $75. The front of house wad well decorated and we'll attended by the make staff member. ขอบคุณ

Visited for Saturday night dinner with friends and had a mixed experience. Positive aspects included friendly and speedy service. The food was presented beautifully which created an expection of quality. However, we found the food to be rather average. The salt/pepper calamari was overcooked and rubbery. The stir fry dishes were oily and heavy handed with garlic and onion. This... More

Reasonably priced and quality Thai Food. The staff are very friendly and rather cheeky at times which makes for an entertaining meal. The restaurant is smaller than many on Victoria St so you won't be squashed in with lots of other diners. The décor is relaxing and uncluttered, just a few Buddha's here and there. A good choice if you... More

I decided to try Oriental Spirit with a friend last night after being informed there would be a 30 minute wait for a table (for 2) at Jinda Thai. The restaurant was moderately busy and seemed to have a lively vibe. The place has a predominatly black and orange colour scheme. We ordered the Som Tum, beef stir-fry with chilli... More
