Inauthentic service and ambience. Pop music playing and waiters dressed in casual clothes (strange for a Thai restaurant) Good location in cbd but no parking available. Relatively good food and price range.

We had to wait over half an hour for our takeaway order, which we felt was to long since there were few in house diners. The food was excellent -- but perhaps a little expensive for Wollongong. Prawn Pad Thai was delicious as were the other dishes we ordered. The long wait was probably because all the food was cooked... More

I came with a friend who ordered the BBQ chicken and i ordered the Pad thai. Service was great and food came out quickly considering how busy it was. The food was OKAY although Jasmine Rice is nicer. It was also a little expensive for two people.

I have eaten at many Thai restaurants and this is one of the worst. The pad ped is just tasteless beef sitting in a river of oil. Not quite sure what the Penang chicken was either as it was unlike an other I have ever eaten. The beef salad tasted like the meat had been boiled not much of a... More

If you are happy with mediocre food, poor service and an incorrect order, this is your place. If not, go to Jasmine Rice. Paul

My husband I are both gluten free and really like Thai food, so we were delighted to find Coconut Thai where they not only understand about gf, but they also have special sections in their menu for gluten free dishes. The red curry was delicious, but the pad thai a little bland and bit cool when served, however overall a... More

I have eaten here several times with my husband. We both enjoy it thoroughly each time. The sweet and sour chicken is especially note worthy :)

Thai food is our favourite takeaway. We had an Entertainment Card voucher to use so we thought we would give Coconut Thai a go. The worst Pad Thai we have ever tasted. A previous Trip Advisor post said the Pad Thai was " tasteless". I totally agree. The Chicken Panang and Chilli & Basil Beef definitely below standard and expensive... More
