“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

We went here for valentines day as it had been recommended to us, well the place is a little run down but very clean and I think it adds to the charm. We didn't know they didn't sell alcohol so it's byo which we didn't know! Anyway we ordered the mixed entree which was ok... The satay chicken was lovely and also the curry puffs, took half an hour to arrive though! Another half hour for our mains of prawn rice (lovely and a huge portion)... But the Thai green curry and the Thai duck...the duck arrive sloppy and cold, the Thai green curry was worse than a jar of ready made, the plain rice was nice but thats not hard. Really disappointed, my husband was sick the next day, which I think was the duck. The staff seemed run off there feet as we sat with the green curry on it's own for 10 mins, and then it took another half hour for the bill. The young waitress was disinterested and seemed pretty bored. Definitely won't go again, it was minging.

“Best restaurant in Penrith. One of the best Thai places in Australia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2011

The one saving grace of our regular trips to penrith is looking forward to the (many) meals we will have at this restaurant. Possibly the best thai restaurant I've ever been to (and I've been to a few). Great food, Great service, great sizes of meals, great price. The end.
