    Very disappointed. Requested an outside table on booking, which was confirmed. On arrival table was inside and only set for 10, not 12. Took several requests to get extra chair, and then several more to get setting. That person was practically sitting on the lap of an elderly gent at the next table as there was not enough room for the table. Waitress did not know what basic things like Bundaberg and raspberry (not together!) were - had to point to menu. Majority of us ordered banquet - spring rolls, satay and pad Thai amazing but beef with basil was tough and we did not receive one dish. When we raised this we were told they would cook it (well after other dishes were well and truly finished). We asked for another alternative as we had a show to go to. They grudgingly offered $1 off each persons meal or dessert - for 3 of the 7 banquet eaters!!!!!!! Admittedly it is a very busy time of year (Fringe) but this was a special get together and it was not a good experience.

    The place was packed, the Adelaide Fringe was on, considering it was so busy the service was still very good. Our entree was Pan Dan Chicken which was disappointing, over cooked and a bit dry but my main which was Pad Thai Chicken was delicious , would definitely go again

    We are business associates who try to catch up once a month for lunch. We use the Fork site to choose and usually look for those places offering a discount. We always look for places that allow us to take our own wine. Today's lunch was a great success because the waiting staff were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was excellent. Five mains and a large special fried rice, all shared and not one dish was a let down. Well done to all concerned.

    The most unusual interpretation of Pad Thai I've ever had! Maybe an off night? Service was quite rushed and pushy even though not busy. Unlikely to visit again but the chicken satays were nice.

    A great vibrant Thai/ Cafe Michael 2 restaurant serving delicious dishes. Efficient friendly service and suitable for large parties. The lemongrass chicken and the garlic and pepper squid were outstanding. We all loved the tropical mocktail. Of course, we must order the deep fried cheese cake spring rolls and homemade Chocolate Brownies even though we were so full.

    We found the lipstick stain still on the glass. And food is below expectations. Chicken satay is good.

    Great quiet dining for a stormy Friday night. Food service was swift, they were super accommodating of my dietary requirements and it was all delicious

    We arrived a shortly before 5.00 pm being our reservation time finding the restuarant closed . We discovered that the restuarant opened at 5.00pm . Being the first customers were greeted by a friendly waitress who explained the menu. We found the wait for our entree a chicken satay was not long and was delicious main meals arrived shortly after. My wife and I both had Stir Fries with thai style rice. Our serves were adequate in size again very tasteful. Would recommend .
