Totally disorganized, unapologetic, clueless staff running the show. You could be sitting there for hours before anyone will take any notice of you. You have to keep getting up out of your seat to ask for things that never materialize. Won't be coming back.

Passed by looking for dinner mid week, seemed busy compared to the few other establishments close by. I thought this might be a good sign, it was. Excellent curry, prices Ok. The wine list is underwhelming, but I noted they allow BYO wine, so that is a huge plus Managed to cater well for a vegan

We love Thai food but found the food here rather ordinary. Have eaten much better Thai fried rice elsewhere. Tom Yum soup has no kick to it. Portions are also small. The food here seems to be catered towards western palate. Would not recommend this place.

Slow service, albeit on a busy night. Food was ok but the serving staff argued with us when they stuffed up our order. Still waiting for the remainder of our food, 70 minutes after ordering. Overall, pretty disappointing & won't be coming back anytime soon.

I did not read those reviews posted prior to our dinner here. Now after dinner and having read the reviews, I am much inclined towards the opinions of those many who had said that the service is very slow and the food certainly is Australianized Thai. My duck curry is exactly as described by one of the reviewer; it is... More

Hmmm. Just read recent reviews. Our experience....We went on an Ouffer deal two courses plus a drink for most items on the menu. They were very busy, an indication of good food to us, and we were not disappointed. The service was painfully slow as they were so busy but we were not in a hurry. (Gave the ladies a... More

The actual restaurant is quaint and waitress was friendly. The food portions were tiny and very expensive. The dine in menu is almost double the price of the online takeaway menu. Had the prawn spring rolls which looked and tasted like those micro mini party frozen supermarket ones. These cost $8.90 for dine in. The thai fish cakes were 2... More

There was nothing special about this restaurant. I have eaten far better Thai food in Melbourne. The duck larb was incredibly salty, my partner's chicken pretty bland. The food seemed to be very Aussie Thai. The place was packed, the wait staff were run off their feet - gracious but overwhelmed which resulted in long waits. I would definitely not... More

One of the least good laskas I've ever had, and much more expensive than others in the Richmond area. They also made me buy an additional meal for card minimum when I was only a dollar or two out.

We haven't been here for awhile & were shocked by the sub standard dish. The beef & cashew was terrible, beef was very over cooked & almost inedible. The good part is you get lots of meat, not a lot of veggies though. Disappointed
