Have eaten here many times before and not been disappointed previously. On this occasion however, I felt standards had slipped. The young waitress certainly had an attitude that was not welcoming or friendly and the food appeared to have lost its edge. Not terrible by any stretch, just not of the previous high standard we have come to expect. Hope... More

Whilst in Adelaide for the Tour Down Under cycling event, I found Cafe Michael 2, it's well worth a visit. Food was good, service was quick and friendly. Definitely worth a try

Reviewed here 2 years ago and very pleased it hasn't changed one bit. Friendly staff, food freshly prepared and the taste is superb. Very authentic Thai, I hope it continues.

We called in for lunch whilst visiting Adelaide and were very impressed with the taste and quality of the Thai food. The Tom Yum soup was especially delicious

I love the freshness of the dishes and the fact you can get really hot food here. If you love it very very hot, ask for "Thai hot". Check out the Penang Beef, Nam Tok and Satay. Very hard to understand them on the phone over the raucous of the kitchen so be prepared to literally repeat things fifty times... More

Just had a take away pad Thai with chicken and prawn. Chicken (if that's what it was) was inedible, there were 4 prawns and a container full of sloppy noodles. No flavour at all - nothing authentic about this dish and a total waste of money. It's not hard to get this dish right but Cafe Michael 2 could not... More

Not quite a hole in the wall, but not expansive either. Laminate tables, comfy chairs, paper napkins, fork and spoon dictated to me that we would enjoy a good Thai meal, I was not disappointed.

This is some of the best Thai food we have had. The flavors were authentic and not just the typical found so often now. However the food was not spicy so could be a disappointment if you equate authentic with hot. I prefer less spicy so I can enjoy the complex flavors more. So this was perfect for me. Service...
