I stand by my comments and reviews. If I have said anything bad on Truelocal.com.au there is a good chance I have said it to the business directly face to face or by signed letter.
I hope all businesses read my reviews, and are worried about their online presessence and reply, again I standby every word.
I hope my posts are of use to locals and travellers. And not suprisingly I have been both :))

The most over rated Thai restaurants around.
Due to its popularity, its always busy filled with pretentious Surry Hill types who are here to try and be seen, as they cannot be here for the food. They pile the people in and the moment you enter can be exhausting. Once you are packed in like battery hens the service goes down hill. Simply terrible from slow, to trying to get their attention and for them to come over was near impossible.
The food was below average, nothing special from the Pad Thai, to the green curry's or beef dishes.
I really do not understand why this place is so busy considering the Thai choices in Sydney.
All the reviews are on track. Cheap drinks swapped out for a stench which hurts the eyes, my eyes are burning. Clientele seems to revolve around having a quick drink before before heading out to a venue with more expensive drinks. Or having a slap - which means playing the pokies.
I wouldn't hang here very long, like sipping on a martini or anything. Just have a drink get the job done, save a pretty penny and head home or hit the club for triple priced drinks and deep queues.
P.S. Stock up responsibly
This place seriously has no atmosphere.
No local barflys means, staff I feel deal with clients in a way they know they won't be seeing them tomorrow. Not a bad way, just not like the difference of a homely feel vs a touristy, one and done deal.
My mates who work nearby (hence why I am doing some day drinking here) tend to go elsewhere for a drink or workmans lunch.
But for me the place was rather empty at lunch time, pretty empty after work on a Thursday night and this all added to the lack of atmosphere. Mid-shelf spirit and coke was $11.50 which again is okay, just not great when its to an empty room as people have gone elsewhere.
I can only assume they pick it up on a Friday night and Saturday night, otherwise how can this place keep kicking? So my fellow reviewers are spot on, no long wait or difficult in finding a seat.
