While on a business trip I've been on a mission to find the best Thai food in Sydney. And this is definitely one of my favorites. The tom kha gai is phenomenal, the sweetness of the coconut milk with the flavor of lemongrass, galangal, Thai...More

Back to focusing solely on the original hole-in-the-wall venue and better than ever as a result. A few of the best House dishes now added too. Lovely people, relaxed, great food...Hard to beat.

This restaurant is small and packed but that’s for a reason as the food is delicious. Had the specialty crispy pork with the chilli jam and it was yummy. Definitely worth the visit and will be returning

Delicious Thai food. Staff was very nice and helpful in suggesting dishes according to how much heat you can eat. Food came out fast. It’s BYOB. Crispy pork is absolutely delicious. Can’t go wrong with any curry dish.

The food is great, I had the pad thai and it’s probably on my top 5 ever, the place is not very tidy, including the bathroom.

We stayed nearby and decided to try another Thai resto. The prior reviews had our family a little worried. This is a small restaurant with very minimal signage. Within 5 minutes of ordering our entrée arrived and within 10 min our mains were on the...More

Not as expected, food was average compared to other Thai restaurants near the area. Overpriced as well.

This place is really good. We went because we kept seeing all the people eating there when we would pass by. It is BYOB which we did not realize, unfortunately. It is pricey...hard to pay 15 dollars for pad thai. But it is Sydney I...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

Yes it's BYO. There is a pub about 50m away too. Don't remember being charged for corkage.
