Thai. It is thai really.
I had heard rave reviews about this place from friends (granted they only ate the vegetarian version so it could be it?) so we went here the other day for a quick lunch because we were hungry and it was *there*...
I had the chicken panang curry. It was good, but not mind bogglingly good.
I guess if you aren't looking for spectacular thai and need a feed, this place fits the bill. Oh and it looks like they do big group bookings. So good for thai parties!
And they gave me a bit of paper when I left. $10 off next meal or something in the shop. Really? $10 off our next meal? This meal cost us $100 so $10 really wouldn't have changed much. Not really helpful. I ended up throwing it in the bin since I don't think I'll be back anyway.
I'm very skeptical of people having have tasted better thaifood in Sydney. Yes I've had food close to this in quality for less out west(better value), but nothing can beat their food and atmosphere. I would only reccomend this place for a dine in experience unless your earning 6 digits, and don't mind folking out over $20 a meal on takeaway.
If the price is still to steep for a dine in experience (I wouldn't blame you) go for the specials at thai-rific (this place is only a touch less fragrent and has $10 specials). Just what ever you do, don't be tempted by their thai-ways restraunt at newtown station walk in area. It's a sad attempt at convincingread more
