First time for dinner or anytime for that matter but was very happy with the service and the food was very good. We had Soft shell crab and fishcakes followed by the red duck curry and sizzling stir fry prawns. All was excellent and can recommend if you are a local or just visiting.

Went to this restaurant last week for the first time. Had a great meal multiple dishes and the service was very friendly and accomodating. All 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and would recommend to others.

Had take away and the spring rolls were very ordinary. Really lacking taste and had no appeal at all. Would definitely go elsewhere next time.

Definitely our new favourite Thai in Coolum - 4 dishes - a noodles, stir fry, salad and curry - all great flavours, nice and spicy without blowing your head off (and thats the standard medium) - but where you could still taste the fresh herbs. Good mix of veggies and meat in what we ordered and generous portions.

My daughter saw this restaurant today. It was about midday, saw the lunch menu, $9.90 menu. We both chose chilli basil chicken. We didn't have to wait long about 5-10 minutes and it arrived at our table. Large portions and absolutely delicious. One of the best I have tried. Will definitely go back. Highly recommend.

We visited Shelly's Thai again this Saturday for lunch with the family. This time we ordered the Pork Belly, Duck and Soft Shell Crab - all the dishes were fantastic and very fresh and well prepared. We'll be back!

The service was good, The hours are poor for us southerners they close at 8! but to be fair the whole street shuts. The food was flavoursome, price ok but not traditional more a blend of Asian flavours you decide if that's good or bad? I prefer pure.

This is my go to Thai at Coolum. I always have Satay stir fry with chicken and jasmine rice. Can't comment on dining in..as always have takeaway. Never had a bad meal here. Mixed entree is always good as well. Good takeaway. No complaints

Visited on a Tuesday night - middle of January, so maybe holiday mode was in full swing and hence the terrible service to diners. First impressions - Take away seemed to flow nicely with no one waiting more than a few minutes in comfy seats that could of housed dining patrons - clearly this establishment has enough turnover to leave...

Have been to Shelly's Thai Restaurant in Coolum Beach a few times now, and never been disappointed. The menu offers a good range of the usual Thai food options and the meals are cooked and presented exceptionally well. Service has been beyond reproach on each visit, and I am more than happy to recommend this establishment.
