The food here looked amazing. Unfortunately it wasn’t for me tonight. I wanted prawns, to which they had none tonight. Secondly, I ordered chicken and vegetables in garlic sauce and it came without the Vegetables so essentially was a plate of meat. The salad was nice and flavoursome. Perhaps we should have eaten in and not had takeaway.
Came here for a friend's birthday, so knew nothing about the restaurant. Ordered a Penang chicken with white rice and quickly learned the sign didn't lie!! They really need a warning though, because there was nothing on the menu that indicated that there would be an inferno in my mouth if I ate there! So I'm not that great with spicy foods, but that was just over the top! My chilli loving friends did really enjoy their food, but I was left nursing third degree burns to the mouth. A hotness rating next to the dishes would've been greatly appreciated!
Spice I am is very similar to most other Thai restaurants in Sydney, except that their food is a lot hotter. I don't mind spicy food but I think this place goes completely overboard. It is hyped up a lot and I don't think that praise is all that warranted.
Just an average Thai place, I don't understand the hype or the negative fuss. Expect to cram in like sardines when it's busy as they try and pack everyone in wherever possible. The only nice thing about this place is that the tables spill out on to the foot path so you can enjoy a nice breeze when the sun is going down. There are a lot better places to enjoy Thai in Surry Hills in my honest opinion, so it's not on my "must-try-again" list.
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.
