Visited here tonight. The food was about as tasty as I have ever eaten. I had the beef salad and my wife had the Tom yum with added noodles.

OMG the taste was amazing on both dishes. Biggest problem was it was not enough although we both left quite full.

Staff are brilliant and friendly. All round great place. We will return. Could not recommend more highly.

Ordered chicken satay skewers that are very clearly marked as Gluten Free, was served with bread, yes bread on top of the skewers. This is not okay, and actually very dangerous.

It’s a shame that such a bad decision ruined what would have been a good meal.

The skewers were just thrown in the bin.

Thank you for taking the time to review us.
We are sorry that you did not enjoy our chicken satay.

First of all, we want to assure you that throughout the entire process from marinating until serving, our chicken satay and sauce is 100% Gluten Free. However, we are one of the very few Thai restaurants who are determined to serve you the real taste of Thai and in the exact way/presentation that you would have received in Thailand. That is why the cut-up toasts were also served along with our chicken Satay.

Secondly, we would like to inform you that “GF” means our gluten free option is available (as stated in the menu). To avoid any miscommunication, it would be greatly appreciated if you could let us know your preferred GF option.

If you would like to discuss this further, feel free to contact us anytime.

Warmest regards,
Pinto House Team

We booked at Pinto House last night for a birthday celebration, 17 people. The staff at the restaurant were extremely helpful. They set up an area just for our party in the courtyard. I organized entrees for our party with the restaurant prior to the function and the guests paid for their own main courses. Entrees were just so tasty and delicious. The main courses were also of the same standard and the staff managed to serve all meals in a timely manner. They also organized the billing in a very easy manner. We had three tables and each table was billed separately. No issues whatsoever. I would recommend Pinto House for any occasion, from dinner for two to the party we held there last night. We BYO'd and just paid the corkage. No problem with the cake either. They lit the candles etc and plates and cutlery were provided as well. All in all, a very enjoyable evening. The food is awesome, service great and friendly.

We dined at Pinto House on two consecutive evenings because we found the food to be completely delicious. Standouts were the Choo Chee Fish, the dumplings which were very aromatic, and the Soft Shell Crab. The Thai Fried Rice was also very tasty indeed. The staff were delightful, attentive and very friendly. All in all it was a
lovely dining experience. The owner even gave us a complimentary dessert because it was our anniversary, which we really appreciated. We'll definitely be back next time we stay at Coolum.

My wife and I enjoyed another wonderful meal at Pintos House tonight. The food we had was so fresh and delightful. Staff on hand were also helpful and friendly as usual.

Highly recommend trying the Emperor Duck as a main course. Veges were so fresh and delightful, along with the sauce on the duck dish. We will keep comping back. PJS Brisbane
