Highly recommend this restaurant for both food and service. We were with a group of 8 people and all agreed this is a great Thai Restaurant. Extremely friendly staff and food came very quickly.

Went for a family dinner, 6 in total. Located at the front of the Crown Towers Resort. Made a reservation and got a seat outside which was a pleasant ambiance. Food was excellent. We shared five starters and four mains and the teenagers all had a dessert. Prawn roll and spring rolls were probably the stand out of the starters.... More

Lovely Thai dinner. We went with our two kids and they loved the food. They loved the carved Elephant seats. It is very popular and it pays to book. Great range of food and service is awesome. We loved the green curry and chilli prawns.

We got takeaway from here the first night we arrived based on reviews we had read in Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. 10% discount for takeaway. We had sweet and sour pork, pineapple rice, garlic pepper duck with entrees of satay and curry puffs. Bill was less than $80. Food was very fresh, tasty and plentiful. Well done.... More

We arrived after this restaurant was recommended to us. It was very difficult to get the attention of the staff to take our order. We started with Tom Kha prawn soup - very sweet, no heat dish was full of onions, I have never eaten a more rubbery prawn ever. The Tom yum soup was a blackish color had no... More

We always have a couple of meals here when on holidays at the Gold Coast. This time I felt on both times we went there the place was not quite as good as on previous visits but it was still up there with the other good Surfers restaurants. Perhaps they have a new chef?. The place is always fairly busy... More

We had dinner here and the food was very good. I have been to Thailand and I think this rated right up there. The chairs are a bit uncomfortable but if you sit outside they are normal chairs.
