Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Reviewed 18 August 2023

We love Thai cuisine but were very disappointed on our visit last evening. Ordered two mains (in addition to the entrees). Second main which we had planned to share did not come until 15-20 mins after the first. No apology. Waitress managed to spill rice...on our table twice when serving and completely forgot the wines we had ordered. The wine serving by the glass was the smallest we had ever seen in a restaurant. Food presentation and meat content was below our expectation. Poor value for money in our opinion. Will not be returning.More

Authentic thai restaurant, small, nicely decorated with oak tables, beautiful embossed wallpaper, very friendly staff. The food flavours transport you back to Thailand, attention given to presentation of dishes, very generous servings. Enjoyed mixed entree, moneybags, ma rew red duck curry and chicken stir fry.

The food & service is the best. I come here very often. This restaurant is an asset to Gulf Harbour neighborhood. Takeaways are popular, the restaurant is clean & pleasant.

Having over 40 years experience of eating and cooking Thai food in Thailand I couldn’t believe that the meal I had was actually Thai it was closer to Chinese cooking. The Fish cakes contained no small slices of green beans and had a paste consistency...devoid of appropriate flavours such as lime leaves etc. My wife and I have never had so much dark, heavy and very thick batter on a Thai chicken dish. We peeled it away from each piece of chicken so we could get at the meat and sent it back to the kitchen. The waitress was sympathetic and knew that I knew what I was talking about especially when I spoke Thai to her. She was absolutely charming and deserves a better chef. We will give it another go sometime in the future. It may have been an off night. Some folk may like it but not us.More

Great authentic thai with attentive service. Not a great wine list. Really good for a more casual/group meal.

We went twice in a week and both dinners were superb. The green and red curries are to die for. The service is attentive and friendly

I have frequently brought takeaways from Ma Rew Thai Restaurant and the food is very good. Food can be ordered very easily on line from the takeaway menu and you can say what time you would like it

Good food at a reasonable price. The Thai green curry is particularly good. Stir fried prawns is good as well. Easy parking. Comfortable & pleasant restaurant. Licensed but not byo. Several locals, Thais, came in for meals, truly a good sign Also does takeout.

Six of us went to Ma Rew for dinner. The menu selection is amazing (a little overwhelming as everything looks and sounds so yummy it is difficult to decide). All our entrees were a decent size and the meals even more generous so be hungry...when you go there. I had the Singapore Noodles for a main - this was a beautiful dish. Would highly recommend. Also the Tom Kha soup. The Green Curry was absolutely bursting with vegetables - other Green Curries I have had you were lucky to get a few beans or peas. If you don't like your curry too 'spicy hot' make sure you order a mild. The restaurant was very clean with pleasant decor. Would definitely recommend for a fabulous, well-priced dinner.More
