Just had the soft shell crab and mussamon beef curry. Service was not good but was fixed by the food quality. No need to book. It is byo which was great and offered excellent value. Thanks will be back.

The staff at this place are very nice and make for a good dining experience The food was reasonable, not really authentic Thai but still good flavours. The mains were big, we ordered an entree and main each and could not finish our meal. The spring rolls were heavy on pastry and light on filling, the satay chicken was very... More

We were a table of 10 on a busy Saturday night and the service was outstanding as was the food. Being BYO it made it a very reasonably priced night out with great food. Eat here if you can but make sure you book.

1) had to pick up, no delivery 2) tofu in the green curry, not stated in description. Don't like tofu. 3) eggplant in the green curry, not stated in description. Not a fan of eggplant. 4) "hot" dishes were not even mild in my opinion. 5) crispy prawns had no flavour Avoid and just get a pizza for goodness sake

My mate and I stopped in for a lunch special and really enjoyed our meals looking out over the bay from our table. Friendly service makes the experience even more enjoyable.

(we did ask if we could move but could not as the other tables were booked. as was ours). This was even hard for the wait staff to get around.... More

Very nice Pad Thai for dinner. The meals that we're coming out on the other tables looked beautiful well presented, the staff were very nice and the restaurant was very clean. If you are into thai I highly recommend a visit... The view out the front is not too shabby either.. Just love Shoal Bay!

As I write we are finishing the meal. We have a party of 15 and got the banquet for $35 per head. We are SO FULL. We had starters and then 5 different mains. All food was really tasty and there was loads of it. Good service. Only issue is that the dishes came out really quickly and we could... More
