Searching for somewhere to eat at 8.30pm on a Monday night in Parnell in the middle of Level 3 lockdown, our choices were few and far between. Thai is always a favourite, and this was spectacular. The most amazing pork fried rice, prawn stirfry and...spring rolls. Tasty, plentiful, and still piping hot when we got back to our motel. So glad we found this restaurant!!More

Been here before, decided to pick up some food to take home. Got home still nice and hot. Food was very flavoursome and more than enough for 1 person.

Had been visiting the restaurant for the last 8 months. Food was good and floor staff provide good service. Did make a booking at the restaurant yesterday ( 09/03/2020) for dinner. The manageress we extremely rude and unfriendly to us. Very poor management skill and...lack of courtesy to help customer.. I hope the top management would look at this matter seriously as I believed it will tarnish the image of Thai Chef restaurant in Parnell. This is not the first time we encounter her unfriendly manner and I believed we are speak for many others who had similar experience with her.More

Terribly sweet mains with the roti inedible. So much sugar. Not the fresh Thai we’d expected. Service was not great. Best bit was the byo at $6 a bottle.

I first visited this restaurant at least 20 years ago and recently returned. Their vegetarian baked tofu is amazing.

My boyfriend and I went on the Monday night 2 for 1 offer and it was amazing! The starters were fantastic and tasty, and both of our curries were super yummy! We really enjoyed the sticky rice, washed down by a tiger beer! Already booked...in for next Monday!More

A little different than normal Thai restaurants. Menu a little querky, descriptors of dishes a little different. Food was very good. Only complaint was charging $3.50 for corkage on one bottle of wine between 3 people. Advertised as per two people per bottle. Overall a...good night and we will probably be back.More

I only did a takeaway here and experienced very friendly service. Once I got home and ate my meal, I wished I was still at the restaurant to compliment the chef. The food was excellent.
