For the past two years on holidays we have visited Sunshine Thai restaurant. On both occasions the service has been very poor. As it is BYO on both occasions we had to ask a few times for glasses and waited and waited. No apologies and a surly look from the waitress. We waited quite some time for the food. I... More

Sunshine Thai is my go to Thai restaurant on the Gold Coast. The food is always full of flavour and reasonably priced. It is slightly more expensive than other surrounding Thai restaurants but it's well worth it. Favourite dishes would have to be the Pineapple curry chicken and the golden bags for entree.

Great food, good prices. Fun sitting outside. Recommend this thai restaurant in Coolangatta. Good idea to book ahead if you want to sit outside, but lovely inside too.

The food here was delicious. They make all their own pastes. The staff will tell you that the dishes are quite hot but offer to tone it down with coconut milk. Service was good and the staff were helpful with the dish descriptions and were friendly.

Sorry no photos. Devine chicken skewers with crunchy sate sauce, complex flavours in the green Thai beef and beef was tender. Chef/owner has been there for 16 years. Ever so slightly dearer than other Thai restaurants but worth it for the quality. We will return.

Dinner for 8 on a Saturday, busy. We ordered after about 20 minutes of catch-up, so weren't in a rush. Ordered Thai fish cakes for a starter - they had run out, so spring rolls. Ordered mains at the same time. One person in our party ordered Tom Yum, it never showed up despite a subsequent query, and we had... More
