This was our favourite place to eat. That has changed recently and we will not be returning. Went out for Mother's Day and the restaurant was half empty so we were all ready for a great meal. Unfortunately it was a disaster. Half the diners walked out half way thru as their orders were not delivered, incorrectly ordered or just not served at all. We enjoyed our entree then waited forty five minutes for main. Husband received his meal but no rice served and we expectantly waited for my sons and mine to arrive. After 25 minutes I went to the kitchen to see the hold up. Five minutes later my beef arrived but contained peanuts even after asked for it without. Sent it back and waited. Finally mine arrive with the long awaited rice, still my sons didn't come. Heard many complaints from the other three tables nearby. We left without my sons meal being served. They felt it was more important to look after the take away meals rather than the actual diners inside.

Sadly another example of Asian cuisine adapting to the local taste requirements. My wife and I just returned from our 7th Thai holiday and were looking forward to some more Thai food that we love eat. We ordered the chicken satays as an entrée and they were good and the pork ribs in honey sauce were ok but the pad thai seafood was awful. Two prawns and 4 dry pieces of rubbery squid was the seafood. The noodles were greasy and the balance of the dish was filled with tofu and something else I couldn't identify; it wasn't seafood. One of my friends had a red chicken curry and chicken was dry and the curry too spicy for her taste; the waitress didn't ask what level of "hot" was preferred. The special fried rice was full of chunky pieces of chicken and big pieces of carrot. If this is the best Thai in Ipswich and Queensland then those reviewers have never been to Thailand. Prices are reasonable but with no license for alcohol it's easier to keep the prices down. Won't be back.

You do need to overlook the premises
The food was excellent.
The decor is ordinary, the table layout unfortunate, but making the most of the situation.
We were there on a Thursday evening, when the staff were overrun.
The food was very good indeed.
Very good value for money.

Great food! Had red and green curries both excellent. Coconut rice was beautiful. Dim sims were great. Tempura vegetables were the only let down... Batter was far too thick but not enough that we didn't finish them. Good service. Will definately eat from here again. Thoroughly recommend.

Don't be put off by the decor, the food here is fantastic. All the locals eat here and bring in family and friends. Most of their clientele would be repeat. Coconut rice is fantastic
