Having eaten here many times I am unsure whether or not it has changed hands as the quality of the food has gone down terribly. What was once fresh dishes seem to taste of stale oil and lack of care. There are many restaurants on King Street and unfortunately this has gone downhill.

We ordered entrees and mains. The entrees came out quite quick. Then meal shortly after. The meals were packed full... More

We have been coming to Doytao Thai in Newtown for years. It is always quick to get seated. The food is always delicious (The mains are generally on the sweeter side which I know some people don't enjoy). We took our toddler - they gave us plastic plates and cups for her. The food came quickly. We ordered money bags... More

We all ordered our own dish but should have shared as there are big servings of everything, chicken salad, hot basil stir fry (delicious and not to hot) and green chicken curry. All yummy. The spring rolls come out looking like long fingers in a glass but were good too. We sat near the front window and liked the open... More

It has been a long stretch since visiting the restaurant. Moved houses. but It was so nice to be back. Best Thai meals ever. Nothing has changed. Lovely staff, fast service, hot, tasty meals. Group of us went. Nearly ordered the whole menu. Fantastic food. We've decided its worth the trip so we'll be back more often.

The service was friendly and quick. The food was the best Thai we have had, and we like Thai. The entrees seem pricey, but are large. The mains are delicious, and you can take home what you can't fit in! Very large selection of meals that cater for spice lovers and those who prefer "plainer" meals, although there is nothing...
