Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had been waiting to go to Spirit house for a while and while we were in Noosa we decided to, that was a bit of a mistake it's a 40 min drive from Noosa to the restaurant, not the restaurants' fault but something to...be aware of and impacted the meal later. My parents had been to the Spirit House many years ago, basically 15 or so, so it was much changed from then, I will say the grounds and the building are lovely and very Thai with diners overlooking the water. What wasn't great was the subdued lighting, my parents while not old are getting on and they could hardly read the menu, we eventually had to get another light because we couldn't even really see the food when it came out. The food was excellent, especially the starters, the little bits, in hind sight we should of eaten more of those than some of the other. we did the banquet with the addition of the Barramundi, which is a Spirit house signature dish. The first two courses came out quite quickly, the bites and the entree, there was then a 30-40min break to mains and then another 40 min to desert, it got quite late by the time we had to jump back in the car and head back to Noosa, again not the restaurants fault but after almost 4 hours at the table it was a big day. Only two things about the food that put a little dampener on the meal, the Barramundi while excellent I found a little overpowered by the sauce and there was way to much sauce as well, the sweet and sour of the sauce just masked the fish totally, fish flavoured rice and the sauce would have been similar essentially. The other was the desert my mother ordered the cheesecake, the flavours were excellent but it came out as a circle cut in half, she was a little surprised as it looked like they'd run out and had to cut up the deserts, she jokingly said to the server "That's a surprise where's the rest" what we didn't realise is the server went back to the kitchen and informed the chef and within 10 min the owner had come out to explain to us why the desert was the way it was, her explanation was that the deserts were to expensive to serve whole, not what I would have said to a paying customer, tell people there to rich for them to eat it all or something. Obviously many people have commented as they seem to be quite testy about it. Anyway on a whole good the staff were a bit absent, basically seat you then disappear but pleasant when around. I wouldn't race back.More

Everything here was top-tier and super tasty. We have spent many visits to Thailand and also enjoy Thai food in London and on our travels and this defo competes with the best we have had. The restaurant area / location is stunning. We look forward...to returning every visit we make to Australia. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Wish we had time for a cooling class. Well done guys and see you again soon. 🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩More

We booked one month in advance while at the restaurant and particularly asked to be seated on the deck, the staff member at the time was very attentive and assured us we would get the location requested . When we arrived we were at the...opposite side of the water and not on the deck. We opted for the premium banquet for four at 125 per person.. We had one pre dinner drink each, two beers and two Prosecco. The food was good 10/10 to the chefs although small portions and very rich . The ambience is amazing and one of the reasons we returned for dinner having only experienced lunch beforehand. The disappointment was the lack of engagement with the staff, they seemed very disinterested in us or explaining the meals and menu. We asked our personal waitress questions bout the food but were answered simply “ I don’t Know, I suppose the chef does” we had one bottle of wine with the meal and our final bill was $640. Quite a tidy sum for an evening meal. I have been, I enjoyed it but I will not return.More

If there was a 3.5 star option this would be what I would have chosen. This is our second time visiting Spirit House and while the staff are very attentive and friendly and the environment is extremely attractive at night, we couldn’t help feeling a...bit disappointed with our experience overall. We both went for the 3 course banquet and my husband had the 3 glass matched wine option. We both had a cocktail to begin and I had a glass of wine with my meal. We left $347 lighter and I felt that was overpriced for what we got. In my opinion the quality of the food was good but there were no little extras like an amuse-bouche or other little treats that you come to expect. These days with lots of restaurants offering trust the chef or degustation menus I felt that the spirit house banquet was not generous or competitive with a number of other fine dining establishments.More

The food, location, staff and ambiance were all an 11/10. The premium banquet was served over a 4 hour period giving us time to enjoy each dish and, have time for a chat and a laugh. Too many restaurants try to race you through your...meals these days, not Spirit House, they appreciate you wanting time to enjoy your meal and spend time with your friends. This is now a go to place for us when we have guests or want to enjoy time with friends around a great meal.More

Another perfect visit to our favourite restaurant, not sure of the total amount but it must be close to 10. This is our special occasion place and we have never been let down. Unfortunately, the week of our visit, I took a tumble down some...stairs and ended up with a broken leg and in a wheelchair.Contacted SH no problem they would be able to accommodate us at a suitable table. We chose the Premium Banquet, which gave us a great choice of dishes including our favourite crispy Barramundi. Other standouts were the coconut soup with salmon "Tom Kha" and the Green Curry of short rib with tamarind sauce and grilled eggplant. The food just kept on coming so bring your appetite. The things I love most about this restaurant is the consistency of the dishes, they are aways unique and so beautifully presented with attention to detail the service is always exceptional without being over bearing. I always tell others SH is an experience, not just a restaurant.More

Sam, I think he would be fine. There is certainly some outside area to use up some energy, albeit also some water so obviously a watchful eye as you would anyway.
