Very generous servings and really good value for money. The soft-shelled crabs were a standout. Will definitely be back for more.

I am very picky when it comes to Pad Thai, i tried Thai Emerald as it was close to home and instantly fell in love, to the point i was buying it on a weekly basis. The Amount you get is generous and full of flavor.

This has to be the best Thai food around every time I am in Brisbane I call in for my Thai fix. The staff are friendly and the food is excellent.

The takeaway we have had today has left us totally bewildered. The product was very poor quality, meat was very tough (uneatable) the vegetables nearly nonexistant, the sauce had no taste. The coconut rice had zero flavour and lacking coconut taste. We have been regular customers for years and have noted the quality has been falling for some time. We... More
