“Small but good”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

We ate there twice this trip and loved the food. It is very small but the weather was good so we ate outside each time. The not-quite 'tempura' prawns are superb while the lemon fish was also very good. But then, all meals there over 3 or 4 years have been good.

“Not a good day for greenchilli Thai”
Reviewed 15 January 2013 via mobile

Really looking forward to a Thai meal, found this spot and on entering there were no tables available. Ah we thought, a good sign, very popular. We were greeted and seated outside and told someone would be out shortly to take our order. First fail!
Finally another guest came out and learned us to a table inside. Score.
Table was uncleared and remained that way for five minutes. Fail.
Finally menus appear. Score.
Waitress returns, orderedcacchicken dish to be told, sorry run out of chicken. Fail.
Second choice, oh sorry out of satay sauce but you could try pork dish. Fail.
Third choice rapidly selected. We have a glass of water delivered.
Wait 40 minutes. No food! Fail.
Found out why the restaurant was full, it was full of people waiting for their meals. The woman next to us had waited over thirty minutes and food still not in sight.
We left.
Checked trip advisor and found this was rated 19th out of 19. We agree with this rating. Chose the top rated place and had a fabulous experience.

“good little thai”
Reviewed 13 January 2013

really tasty dishes, good menu. they food came very quick and the staff were nice. it is a casual cafe style- no alchol or byo so not a place to go when you want a long, elegant dinner but great for a quick yummy feed. we had satay and pad thai - both were very tasty. prices average.

“Felt let down....”
Reviewed 27 November 2012

So when you go into a Thai place, the only one in town, you have an expectation. Well this didnt deliver, my chicken and vege Satay dish was so watery and sitting on the very top in the sauce was a long, long black hair. Seriously food preparation and service should be a priority and things like this should be noticed.

Thats all i want to say...not happy!

“Best food and value in town”
Reviewed 2 November 2012 via mobile

My wife and I walked to almost every place in Hanmer Springs, most serving the same thing at high prices.
This town is expensive anyway, we ate at a few places, canned food, frozen, tourist trap feed.
We found Greenchilli Thai authentic, welcoming, and a great place to eat,
Check this place out.
