We had just got to Cairns and wanted a quick dinner, the restaurant having been recommended by the hotel and Uber. We got to Tha Fish at 7:40pm, restaurant closing at 9pm, several tables were available. The waiter barely looked at us at the restaurant entrance and asked if we had a booking. We said no, then he looked at something and said they were full. When I pointed out they were closing at 9pm and it was a little over one hour left to order and eat, the waiter became even more arrogant and said: ‘well, they must be late’ and turned away. Even if the restaurant is popular and must be good, please have some manners!

Stopped here for a quick lunch bite. It was busy but they provided efficient service. We just had the lunch specials and house wine but the menu was interesting and the meal was good. Service was efficient and the location overlooking the jetties and mountains is great.

Lunch specials at Tha Fish were greatly priced! Great value for money. I had the fish and chips and a glass of sparkling wine and my son ordered the pasta and an apple juice - all for $50. Good quality food and drinks - and fantastic service!

We had a wonderful meal at this restaurant. We sat outdoors and enjoyed the breeze or the marina. Food was very good. We had the saddle tail snapper (first time) and the coral trout, which were artfully prepared. The staff was very attentive.
