“Nice view”
Review of Shoal Bay Thai

Shoal Bay Thai
Ranked #47 of 98 Restaurants in Nelson Bay

Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 January 2018 via mobile

Saturday night was busy with people ordering take away and waiting for a table. Luckily we got a table at the front side window looking at the view of the beach and people passing by. It was a nice restaurant but knowing it was a busy night, staff were somewhat friendly. Our food was on time from entree to our mains, prices were reasonable for the portion of the food. We both order the Pad seew - chicken and another beef. As for drinks, a coke glass bottom was a bit pricey since there wasn’t a lot of content. The restaurant caters for families, friends, couples, take away - however if you have a large group it’s better to book in advance especially on a Friday and Saturday nights. We enjoyed our meal, enjoyed the colourful night sky. The decor in the restaurant can be improved. Having a plain colour canvas painting isn’t appealing at all.

Food was typical of most Thai restaurants and prices as well .
The staff are young but friendly.
The restaurant is small and busy . I would recommend booking at any time to ensure you get a table .
The location is ideal for walking to and from, if you are staying IN Shoal Bay

the food here is consistently good (don't make the mistake of thinking the food here is the same as that you will find at their restaurant in Nelson Bay) and the views over Shoal Bay make it the perfect location. if you try nothing else, try the Lamb Shank Mussaman, generous serve and meat that falls off the bone!

We have always had great service from here. The food has always been really nice.
During peak seasons its best to book as it would other wise be very difficult to get a table.
