    Food was excellent. We ordered 3 starters and 3 mains and every single item was delicious. However the service was poor. We waited 20 minutes for someone to take our order and 1 hour for the food.

    Although the arrival and communication between the staff wasn’t exactly low key after our initial arrival, our food, the ambience and location was phenomenal. We had the best time and the food was excellent !!!!

    Lovely ambience, good service and nice food. The ‘feed me’ menu was plentiful and tasty. The bill was reasonable even including a bottle of wine.

    Unfortunately our online booking got lost between the The Fork and Iyara and we had to wait 10 mins for a table on the balcony.

    Had dinner here twice in one month. The best Thai food you can get in Cairns, possibly Queensland. Very, very good !!

    We were not very impressed with the service delivery. It took 65 minutes to deliver our order, which was not a complicated one. The food and drinks were overpriced. I have had better service and food quality in Cairns in other locations. Not very satisfied with this restaurant and its pricing of meals and drinks.

    Food was very nice but the bill seemed too much for what we had to eat and drink.

    Excellent green chicken curry, customised with extra vegetables. Terrific view of the esplanade. Lovely staff, friendly but not intrusive.
