    It almost doesn't matter what you choose from the menu – the food has been excellent every time I've been there. Most recently, we enjoyed the char grilled eggplant with banana blossom.

    Pork hock.

    Harassing service - trying to turn around tables as fast as possible. Pork hock was the highlight (though quite fatty)

    Braised cheeks is an amazing dish for meat lovers. Pass on the steamed fish (was not flavorful - and flavor is what you want with Thai).

    Crispy market fish is a MUST HAVE. Don't be put off by the "whole fish" thing: the best bits come separated as the best fish sticks you'll ever have.

    Great ambiance, dusky lighting, high ceiling and spacious. Friendly service. Dishes are on the overly sweet side adjusted for local taste, a little let down, they could have been that much better!

    Cocktails are fantastic. Dining is good if you don't mind communal seating. Tho' there is an option to get individual tables. The green and red curry are splendid dishes.

    The Banana Crumble was probably the best (sexiest) desert I have had in a long time. We ordered a second one...

    The caramelised pork, prawn & sour pineapple entree is RIDICULOUS. I pretty much could've just had two (or three, or ten) plates of that & been EXTREMELY happy. Fantastic staff, epic cocktails.

    Found a cockroach swimming in my water and when we pointed it out to the staffer they told us that sometimes when they set up the table small cockroaches crawl around the table. Not reassuring!

    Start out with some drinks downstairs at the bar. Green Curry and Pork Hock were winners, but you can't go wrong with the food.

    The best Thai in the East. Try the $16 starter...it's an orgasm in the mouth. Jungle curry is awesome too

    Light & airy space. Food is sensational, egg net is a must. Cocktails created by experienced barmen.

    Avoid the papaya salad if you think it's going to be really spicy and sour like the real thing...

    Restaurant is still fab but the bar staff downstairs are slack, unprofessional and are not of the same calibre as the staff upstairs.

    Caramelised pork hock is a standout dish! Egg net is also a must order. Wash all that down with a ping pong or red dragon cocktail! Cocktails are unique :)

    The interior is very chic. Had a hard time staring at my food, because the atmosphere is so incredible. Dining is communal and the food is meant to be shared, you won't be disappointed.

    Expect slow bad service and overpriced food that is over seasoned. Overpriced and disappointing. Will not be back. Hat restaurant my ass.

    Don’t miss any of the merrily named in house cockatils such as the Ping Pong, Camp Bitch, Bloody Longrain or the famed Caiprioska. Trust us, you want to be slightly drunk when the bill arrives.
