    Usually reliably delicious. The pad thai was disappointing today - noodles were all broken and few noodles. compared to their normal quantity

    It was really good except for the fact that the eggplant salad was off the menu - and it was the second time in a row ! A tad disappointing but fast service & yummy dishes.

    Restaurant is packed at lunch time, so fairly noisy. We sat near the window seats. Food ordering was easy via the app (get $5 off). Convenient location (across the road from Circular Quay station).

    Surprisingly good thai restaurant with an extensive menu. The flavours were extremely vibrant and fresh. There was a new ordering app that also allowed the bill to be split.

    The food was great, presentation, serving amount. But the noodles they use is from instant noodles which is normal thick one on a Pad Thai. And also i think I just 1/4 of the coconut juice bcos majority is ice. In terms or service, they review each order to avoid confusion. And i like the staff from the counter. So nice! All in all so good! ขอขอบคุณ

    Food is always tasty but I wish they offered more vegetables in their dishes or the option to add veggies to curry etc. Service is fine. It’s nice to sit in the main restaurant and have a bit of buzzy atmosphere and location is very convenient.

    Cuisine is fantastic as always. Wait staff were generally warm & friendly, but there was particular staff who never smiled at all & one bad mood emanating from this one person can wreck one’s dining experience. All the rest were great. I’d still recommend this place as a go to for cheap yummy eats before the theatre.

    Had the duck dish no72 that I had last visit here. This time they served me an overcooked shrivelled mess of a dish. I had 4-5 "scraps" of duck scattered over a heap of rice it. Sides were also scatter all over and the egg was cold and dry. I think they're trying to say they don't me here anymore.

    Food quality is always good especially the chilli prawns and the fish curry was lovely I would definitely recommend both. We tried the pancake it was average tasting and expensive for what you get so a bit of a let down. Overall the menu is good though and the place was crowded for a Sunday lunch

    The boat noodles were a delicious delight and the warm soup with the chewy noodles were delicious! I would’ve had more if I wasn’t so full!

    Food is good with vegan options available. Restaurant was packed, even on a weeknight. Close to Circular Quay, ideal for dining out in the city.
