“Five star atmosphere, nice food”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

Dined one lunch time. This restaurant is very popular and we needed to book several weeks ahead. The thing we enjoyed most about this restaurant was the ambience, open air pavilions around an artificial lake. Bearded dragons rustling around in the greenery.

The food: interesting combination of flavours in our shared meal, although I didn't think it quite measured up to the hype. Some of the dishes could have been presented better. Possibly would have had a nicer dining experience if we had chosen the tasting/ degustation menu. Very reasonably priced for what we got, and would give the Spirit House a go again.

“Delicious and worth the trip”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We came to the Spirit House via Noosa and it is definitely worth the drive out to try out for the delicious food.

The service was warm and friendly, and was not intrusive but definitely attentive.

The food was delicious. We decided not to order their famous well known dishes because it seemed to come in rather large sizes (we were only a party of 3 not very big eaters), So instead, we ordered a number of smaller to share plates.

I reckon, probably one of the finest Thai restaurants we have in Australia.
We had a few of their mocktails, yum.
The scallops are a must! Something about the scallops in Queensland makes them amazingly sweet and juicy.
The red duck curry was good, pork ribs - YUM!
The sauce with the soft shell crab made me want to lick the bowl clean it was so good.
The baby pork ribs - YUM
The salt and pepper bugs - YUM
Peanut Bavarois - Yum

The atmosphere and environment was so lovely, the lake was stunning and the addition of the water dragons running around our feet was cute.

Overall, loved it. Recommend it.

“Food and Atmosphere first class”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

This was our third visit to Spirit House for lunch - again it was the most wonderful food with every course a taste sensation - nothing to fault - even had improvements since our last visit (new toilets). The front of house lady who seated us was attentive and excellent however our waiter didn't continue the excellent customer service - he was more interested in 'upselling' everything. We felt this was a negative in such a beautiful peaceful environment - hopefully he was just 'busy' and can use this feedback for improvement. It's such a special place to visit and we will return again in the future.

“What a great experience from the moment you enter!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

Wow! Enter through beautiful thai, tropical gardens with trickling water & fire lit torches. Be seated in your own private dining pavilion set around a giant pond, soooo relaxing. Food was fantastic, drinks were great & atmosphere just perfect! If you haven't been here, your missing out. Book ahead. Made me want to return to Thailand.
