Nick's has a small selection of Thai and Australian food. We decided on Thai and were impressed with the authentic Thai flavours. Service was good, the dining environment was pleasant and the restaurant is well located on the Esplanade.

We had a group of six, including two teenagers, for lunch. All food, including drinks, arrived together. All meals were excellent, however the younger teenager, who ordered a childrens fish and chips, was not keen on the taste of the fish.

The fish wasn't good, chips cold and I suspect frozen the staff were friendly but missed some things I asked for ....also no knife on the place setting...why...anyway I am sure you can find better fish and chips and not have to look too far.
