My wife and I had dinner at this restaurant on a Friday. It was probably about half full, so we could get a table without any problems. The staff were friendly, but seemed very busy. It was sometimes difficult to get their attention. The food was good, but nothing to make it stand out from any other Thai restaurant. The... More

Ate there for lunch yesterday, we were the only 3 people in there. Had entrees and main courses. All were just ok. Service was pleasant but a bit slow considering no one but us there. BYO handy. Food went cold very quick as it was a cold day and the plates and dishes were obviously not pre warmed. Not cheat... More

Organised lunch with friends (6) looking for somewhere to dine while actually having a conversation without shouting. Chose Kunyit and were not disappointed! We were made to feel comfortable from the time we arrived until leaving (which was well past closing time). The food was great. We had hoy jor and fried quail tossed in szechuan for entrees. The quail... More

The restaurant space feels good. It is nicely located and laid out. Surprisingly so. The service is calm and moderately efficient. The food is mid range and occasionally just above. There's nothing in what we had out of a number of standards including pad Thai, steak and black bean sauce, etc that reaches above average heights. If anything, the place... More

I took some clients for lunch and was very surprised. The decor is modern, ambience supportive of quiet discussion and the food was first class. Good service. I'll be back

We decided to eat at home so we fronted up to get some takeaway. We ordered curry puffs and three main courses. With only one table of four diners we thought it would be quite quick......wrong 35 minutes! When we opened the containers I was disappointed that it looked quite bland. The chicken and mixed vegetables did not even contain... More

We regularly visit this local restaurant and enjoy the red duck curry with lychees. We share this meal and add roti bread and thoroughly enjoy a delicious and inexpensive meal. Love it!!!

Everything was so tasty and the service was attentive. The servings however were half what we expected for the price. There was no ambience in the restaurant - just two or three other tables occupied while others waited ( some impatiently) for their take away. Thank goodness it was a BYO restaurant otherwise it would have been more expensive than... More
