Description: If you've travelled and discovered the tastes of Thailand, you'll love Kenny's Thai Kitchen located within Club Forster. Revisit your memories with the fragrance of Jasmine Rice, the richness and colours of Thai Curries, visit Satays, Coconut and Pad Thai, journey through Tom Yum and linger with the unique and tantalising spices of Lemongrass, Coriander, Chilli and Kaffir Lime. Visit the Great Lakes - Great Authentic Thai cuisine!

We have been to this Thai restaurant twice. Our first visit was not a good experience whereby, even though the entrees were quite flavoursome, the main meals were horrible. The chicken and beef were very tough and bland whilst the rice, even though it was unappetisingly soggy, was hard on the inside. Go figure!
Having read some of the "excellent" reviews in Tripadvisor, we thought we had just struck a bad day at Kenny's Thai so we decided to give another try.
Sorry to report that our second visit was a replica of the previous visit.
We are rather confused, and a little bemused, as to standards that are obviously acceptable to some diners.
Our recommendation: "give this one a miss unless you are a fan of mediocre club food.

Not bad at all for a regional location to have decent Thai. Commenters who claim 'Best Thai Ever' need to travel more ( or temper their comments).

The food is good to average Thai, but the dishes were very sweet with added sugar beyond what you get in Thailand. The Aussie syndrome.

The sauces were simple and repetative, unlike the more complex flavours you will find in Thailand. One dish was over hit with MSG or plain salt.

The people working the floor were pleasant but the 'Order and Pay' at the counter thing, and get your own drinks, does not reflect in the price. With dishes at up to $27, I think they should provide table service.

The venue is a Club, and the decor etc is very much just that.

Overall it's good but let's not get carried away. 3 Stars.

We've been eating Kenny's authentic thai food for years at his last establishment up the road and were excited to bump into Kenny himself at Club Forster and find he had moved in upstairs.

We had the pork belly (amazing sauce!) sweet chilli fish and pad thai duck. All were generous, flavoursome and well priced.

We're back again on Sunday for more of the fresh seafood he is famous for. Look out soft shell crab!
