Disappointing takeaways. No taste. Medium spice was a mild, and mild was tasteless. Wont be going back.

Sorry you were disappointed. Unfortunately people have different expectations when it comes to levels of spice and it is hard to cater for all tastes

We really enjoyed our visit here. The restaurant is far enough away from the cbd to have no parking worries. The service was excellent and the meals moderately price. Not crowded but a good atmosphere inside. The spring rolls were average and the curry puffs...much better. Can recommend the fish dishes and the crispy pork excellent. Tom yum soup was outstanding. The food was fresh and tasty and we will be back.More

This is the second time I've been to Thai Classic, which is well recommended by colleagues. The food is tasty, with generous portions. The deep-fried entrees were crispy and not oily. I can't comment on the dine-in experience - I have always had take-aways, but...the decor is pleasant and the staff are friendly. We had a take-away meal, which was well packed, but my only criticism is the use of styrofoam containers - please switch to something biodegradable as soon as feasible.More

Holy moly - this was the best Thai we’ve had in aaages! Everything tasted so authentic and fresh. Service was good and reasonably timed - meals didn’t come out too quickly or too slowly. We certainly didn’t feel rushed. It was an all round nice...experience. I’m so happy that we found this little gem of a place!More

We got takeaways tonight with level 3 lockdown. Our meals were amazing, the Massamun curry was so creamy and tasty.The Panang curry was full of fresh veggies and tender beef. The curry puffs can't be beaten. Yum Yum Yum

We looked in the window and saw quite a big crowd inside (good sign on a Thursday night). It was busy, and they were also dong a roaring take-away trade as well. We ordered 2 entrees and a main, and although they misunderstood our request...for the timing of the servings, we were really happy with our choices. The mixed entree had a range of 6 dishes, well flavoured and nicely presented. The main was a simple Sweet & Sour Chicken, and this did not disappoint either. Prices were above the norm for a Thai restaurant, but this is Central City, and overall, very good value.More

Enjoyed our Thai curries in this small restaurant with good, friendly staff. We had starters of chicken satay and curry puffs. Then a yellow Thai curry and massamum curry both with rice. Generous portions and very tasty. Would recommend.
