    We like Smile Buffalo. Food and service is always good. This time the beef in the Beef Massaman, one of our favourites, was very tough. My wife gave up on it.

    Good food & pleasant atmosphere in a good location only letdown by slow service and indifferent staff. One entree forgotten & haphazard serving of mains. Asked for container to take home late served main, had to ask a second time

    Enjoyed the food but not all meals arrived together which made it difficult for the table. Came on an extremely noisy night made it difficult to have a conversation.

    The food was fresh and flavoursome, we will definitely return to Smile Buffalo and would highly recommend this restaurant. Best Thai restaurant in the area.

    Thai is one of my favourite cuisines and this little restaurant didn't disappoint. The food was fresh and the flavours packed a good punch, It was very popular and full the night we attended thus the waiting staff where stretched to the limit so possibly the service wasn't as attentive as it could be. But would highly recommend and would definitely return,

    Second time we've dined here, food is excellent, prices very reasonable and nice atmosphere. Surprised it is not busier. Will be back again soon I'm sure.

    The green curry was a tad on the sweet side. I would prefer a green curry a bit more savoury.

    Smile Buffalo is a local treasure. It's quiet enough to enjoy a conversation with friends. On the night I dined there the food was excellent and the service was very good. I'll definitely return.

    The food was good but one meal was forgotten and I had to go up twice to find out what was happening with the meal which took an extra half hour.

    When the order arrived, it wasn’t quite right (ordered prawns but got chicken) but it was quickly rectified. The flavour was a bit too sweet for a savoury dish.
