We ordered cashew chicken and were given sweet and sour chicken with pineapple and tomato. When we queried the dish we were told that it was cashew chicken. We asked another waitress who agreed that it was the wrong dish and said we would get a discount on the price. The discount was only 10 percent and when we complained... More

We eat out at Thai restaurants regularly and this one did not disappoint. We had a mixed entree and a cashew nut, roast duck stir fry. Both dishes were superb. This was our second visit to this restaurant and we will definitely be back next time we stay in Coolangatta.

The food when it came out was nice, but the time between our 5 dishes coming out was unacceptably. We had to ask about 1 of the dishes as it had not come out after we almost finished our other shared dishes. I would get takeaway from here as the food was nice, but would not dine in.

I was not keen to return again after the poor service on our 2 previous visits but was pleasantly surprised. The mixed entree was nice but the serving sizes have reduced over the years and the fish cake is the size of a 20cent piece so bear that in mind when ordering. Stir fry holy basil with chicken was really... More

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.
