I love this restaurant, the food is outstanding! Have just had our second meal here. Last time approx 6 months ago, equally as good for a business dinner or a couples dinner! Staff are so friendly and helpful. If you like tasty fusion Thai, Sai...Thai is an incredible tasty version that has taste buds singing!More

Fantastic Asian fusion food, very good value and great staff. We were made to feel very welcome, the food was some of the best I’ve had outside of Asia. The mussels marinated in red curry sauce and wrapped in naan bread were amazing.

Lovely location. We took a table outside. Vegetarian starters were exquisite. Stir fry and tofu based noodle were the mains. Lovely atmosphere. Great service.

There is a pork cracking entree they appear to overate and sell to us Newcomers. Choose something else. They have on the menu that you can choose brown rice as a side until you try to order it and it's not available. I had stir...fried veggies as a main, they added tofu as requested which was great. But there were only raw broccoli including large chuncks of the stem, cooked cauliflower and some mushrooms. I requested ginger be added but it may have been powdered not fresh ginger. This poor meal was $28. My partner had a chicken & cashew. It was overly sweet $28. Overall wasn't the nicest of meals we have had and wouldn't rush back there.More

Was recommended this place and was looking forward to an amazing meal based on reviews here. Feel like we went to a different restaurant? Pad Thai was over cooked and lacked any flavour, tamarind Salmon was dry and chewy. Stir fry veges were OK. Tiny...bowls of rice provided. Service was nice but really wonder what all the fuss is about.More

We really enjoyed dinner at this unpretentious and super friendly eatery. Chatting with the owner Sasi we learnt the antecedents of some of her fusion dishes like crispy tofu and crispy mushrooms (cloud ear fungus and shiitake). Great food!!

I think they would be. If you like to let your children run around and make noise probably not but if they sit under a measure of self restraint yes. There is outdoor/footpath seating and that might be suitable for your... More
