We arrived very hungry for our meal here and left very full. Servings were huge-especially the Taiwanese combo entree. A bit disappointed that a lot of it was deep fried but the spring rolls are a must. All in all, a really nice meal with...More

We went to this place based on it’s high ratings on Trip Advisor and we had high expectations but we were disappointed. We shared 4 different main meals so we all got to experience a good cross section of what Cool LaLa has to offer....More

It’s one of those fun places that is slightly off the main street but very popular with enthusiastic, delighted customers. Fun casual atmosphere, great for couples or a group. This is a great place, attentive but not hovering front of house staff and delicious eclectic...More

This restaurant is tucked away in Airlie Beach although not tricky to find. Try and pay a visit - the staff are so friendly and the food was unbelievably good. Thai crispy chicken and sweet and sour were tremendous.

Fantastic little restaurant hidden off the main drag of Airlie. You must try the sweet and sour pork - the best I have ever had. Wine list is very reasonably priced as well.

A little restaurant highly concentrated on our food and quality. Only use fresh local produce and cook with our hearts, no M.S.G added is our philosophy, we just cook our food fresh to order. Cool Lala offres the coolest drink Bubble Tea, house made Dim sum, authentic Chinese/ Asian dish and street eat!! We are located at the courtyard right next to the Airlie Lagoon, on street parking or council parking on either side of the Airlie Beach lagoon, then a short stroll under the canopy of giant Mortern Bay trees.
