Pad Thai... Red curry... Massaman curry... Chicken larb... All good. Really great flavours. Great service. My only complaint is that both times they didn't have deep fried ice cream available! But I've had two other desserts and both were delish.

It might be my imagination but I think it used to be better but its still good food. Maybe it's changed hands. I'd still recommend it but the prices have crept up and-perhaps it was the regular cooks night off. Anyway, we enjoyed our meal and will gather again.

Hi Colin and thanks for your feedback. As with any business and restaurants in particular, every day can see some staff call in sick and staff do change. Not sure which night you visited but I can assure you that we have not sold this business nor do we intend to. What may have happened was you may have had... More

Relaxed indoor or outdoor dining. Genuine Thai chefs and this is evident as the food tastes authentic. We have eaten there at least 10 times and it is always good. The linch menu offer slightly smaller meals for a lesse price but they are very satisfying and usually more than we can eat. We highly recommend this restaurant.

A relaxed atmosphere, very casual dining, friendly service and great food. I especially liked the pad kee mao and the perfect curry.

We get takeaway from here on a regular basis. My husband enjoys a laksa and A Thai 5 do a great one! Good quality produce used. Friendly service

A-Thai-5, Owner at A Thai 5, responded to this review

Hi Elaine and thank you for your feedback. Our Laksa is flavoured in the Thai style instead of the more common Singapore or Malay styles, but as you suggest, it is a very popular dish and very tasty....we hope your husband will continue to enjoy it. More

Came here on a friend's recommendation with a group of 9 girlfriends for an early dinner (6.30pm) on Thursday night and it was lovely to sit outside on such a pleasant autumn evening. We ordered 6 dishes to share - I'm the only one who likes anything spicy so everything was ordered as mild. The girls loved all the dishes... More

Please excuse my delay in replying to your review and we do welcome and appreciate all feedback. Thursdays sometimes throw us and can be super busy or quiet, and if the former and we have staff shortages, delays naturally arise. We do apologise if this was the circumstances you experienced and cannot really offer any excuses - it is up... More

A little spot in Mitchelton, this establishment does well for what it is. A no fuss Thai restaurant with great flavours and cheerful service. I would happily get take away from here again. Pricing was good and food was delicious.

Had a tasty Thai meal here tonight - many great gluten free choices and selection of spiciness. The coconut rice was a great accompaniment to the satay sauces, and all was presented well. It's a relaxing setting with choice of indoor or covered outdoor dining. The service was efficient even when everything got busy! Highly recommended!

Thank you for your feedback which is always welcomed. FYI as of today, April 1, we role out our new menu which expands on our already vast range of vegan choices and will offer even more non-animal Thai experiences....please enjoy. More

There is no better Thai food anywhere than here. I have loved Thai for 20 years and A Thai 5 has the best I have ever had. I have been a regular at A Thai 5 for 7 years and I can't help going back almost every week. The vegetarian options are plenty. The owners take allergy issues very seriously... More
