    Food is generally great with some standouts. Service can be hit-and-miss. Gets busy in evenings, book ahead.

    We got notified by the restaurant that it was shut at 5:15pm for a 7pm booking made through dimmi for 31/12 on the day itself. Poor service.

    Food was very tasty, customer service was swift. Only issue was that there was a lot of background noise so it was difficult to chat. I'll definitely be back.

    The food was really nice, and the staff were friendly, but the service was almost too quick! We had a 2 course meal in 40mins. I don't want to be waiting ages for a meal, but a little pause between courses would have been fine. And the tables were too small to fit everything on.

About the restaurant

Take a break from the daily grind

Manly, Manly, Manly. Sun, surf and this gorgeous and intimate Thai restaurant right on Darley Road. Words cannot describe how lovely the décor is at this little jewel, with big wooden slats lining the walls, greenery throughout and low level mood lighting. Reminiscent of warm romantic evening meals in Koh Samui, dining at Mortar & Pestle will have you on WebJet the minute you get home to book your next trip back to Thailand!

Mortar & Pestle serve all of the traditional dishes you would be familiar with - Pad Thai Hor Kai and Lemongrass Chicken - but they also offer some different and exciting dishes like Roasted Duck Fried Rice, Sriracha Duck and Gang Ga Ree Garlic (a yellow curry) so there is something for everybody. Food is prepared fresh which really shows in the steamed vegetable and soup dishes.

As well as being very reasonably priced the staff are efficient and friendly. This cosy restaurant has quickly become popular with locals either to dine in or to order a take away. If you have picked up a little honey down on the beach that day be sure to bring her up to Mortar & Pestle, take up one of the seats in their alfresco area and impress her with an intimate night out for two. Without breaking the bank!

Best dish: Hangover Noodles - the perfect cure to what ails you with hot and spicy rice noodles, chilli, sweet basil, Chinese broccoli and shallots.
