This is my 1st ever poor review. This was honestly the most awful Thai food ever. We actually threw it away. Old vegetables, burnt black and noodle & rice dishes totally overlooked and stodgy. The satay was powdery like it was from a packet. A waste of money - hope we don't get sick. It honestly tasted like reheated food.

I was looking for a Takeaway meal whilst walking along the main street in Coolum Beach. A few people eating outdoor so checked out the menu. Settled on a Pad Thai Chicken and it was ready within 15 minutes. Very tasty and a generous serving.

We visited on the weekend and the meal was nice enough but not exceptional, the service is not the best but there only seemed to be one waitress. It's an inexpensive meal and it's close to accommodation in Coolum.

It looked good from the outside so that's where we sat on a cold Saturday night. The service was very average as they were not very busy at all. The food was good though and made up fir the service. We have had better tasting Thai food however this was ok for the area, would we go back hmmmm no.

Best place for a dinner meal in Coolum Beach for a reasonable price. Large portions and fresh food, loads of sea food incl scallops and prawns. Highly recommended.

We had a large gathering of friends and made a large takeaway order of 13 mains, 5 entrees and a whole lot of rice. Each item request was different some being hot and some mild and the Chefs at Coolum Thai Spice did a wonderful job of having our order ready for pickup on time and also got everything correct,...

We visited on a Sunday evening during the school holidays and it was very busy with both sit-in and take-away customers. Luckily we were early enough to get a seat because we didn't have a reservation. Service was fast and friendly. I was disappointed with both the Satay Chicken and Green Curry that we ordered and thought both lacked the... More

We had takeaway from here, Penang Chicken, Satay Chicken and Pad Thai. It was fairly average if you're used to being spoilt with good authentic flavoursome Thai. BUT it is reasonably priced, the servings are good sizes and the turnaround is quick. The Satay didn't take like a normal One would, it was almost like beef stroganoff in taste? I'd... More

We shared a basil pork stir fry and a green duck curry. Loved both, especially the duck. Plenty to eat, didn't need an entrée. Give it a go. Maybe could have been a bit hotter (spicier).
