Traditional treatment of traditional recipes. Consistent quality whether take out or eat in. Portions are reasonable. Whole fish had less meat than anticipated.

Got take away from thai basil figtree. The 'vegetable' mini spring rolls as noted on their menu, were actually meat (being a vegetarian was really not impressed!) And the Pad Thai was so sweet it was barely edible. Won't hurry back.

They seemed to cook one meal at a time so the first person was finished before most of the party were even served their meals. Not well organised, service slow. At Thai restaurants we usually find the meals all come too fast, not here. The...More

The restaurant is now relocated to Figtree. The food is tasty but at about $15 a main I expected to see a lot more meat. Both the meals I ordered were 80% vegetables. The meat was small and thinly cut.. I hardly saw it :(...More

Food was really nice full of flavor, people were friendly and the prices were cheap. Basic layout but for nearly half the price of other places with just as good food, well worth it.

Had many many dinners here, often with BYO wine, sometimes take away, occasionally eat and run.. It's not an atmospheric place, but does what it does well. Quick, tasty food in satisfying portions and reasonably consistent from visit to visit.
