Price Point: Mains from $10 - $20

Inspired by food from Thailand's province, Isan, Thai Isaan's menu showers you (well, not literally) with sticky rice, spicy dishes and plenty of Asian beers; the preferred antidote to an inflamed tongue.

Inside it's welcoming and homey. It's not exactly spacious, but that just adds to the communal atmosphere that makes this friendly spot so unique. The best things in life are shared after all.

Share the love with some small plates to begin. On offer are some soft steamed buns filled with your choice of pork or chicken, prawn toast, BBQ prawn skewers and the intriguing curry puffs that might sound lethal but are actually filled with delicious minced chicken and potato.

Peruse their Isaan style menu that features fresh salads and a spicy pork ribs soup. There's also the classic Thai green and red curry as well as massaman and jungle curry. And you can never go wrong with the chef's special. The recommendations include the pork hock and a magnificent whole snapper - the whole shebang if you catch our drift...

We were met with a friendly greeting and seat at our table, the restaurant has an open and authentic feel. Our meals came quite promptly and were absolutely delicious. We will definitely come again (soon) and recommend to others. Great Thai Restaurant.

We had a very enjoyable evening here. The staff were excellent along with the food. We had curry puffs and sticky pork buns. They were both delicious and extremely moorish. Then we shared a cashew nut chicken and the Penang curry both of which were lovely. We will definitely will be back! It’s our new fav Thai restaurant

Staff were welcoming and service very efficient. No whole snapper available, so we had to make another choice, but all flavours were excellent. Tom Yum soup was great, entrees were delicious, and mains likewise. A very enjoyable meal indeed.

Food is nice. It’s a small but quaint place to dine. If you want to avoid the crowd when dining and yet get to taste an authentic asian dish, this is a good place.

I found this restaurant frustrating.
I was so happy to have found the best Cashew Duck that I have ever had that will indeed lure me back for more.
However our experience was tarnished by the two diners who ordered prawn or scallop skewers receiving them easily 5 to 10 minutes after the other got their entrees.
The same lag was experienced as I waited forever to get my Coconut Rice to go with my Cashew Duck.
Main problem seems to be the number of Takeaway orders coming out of the kitchen constantly obviously a popular option.
Also found that one or two too many tables crammed in to restaurant . Good to see we were not dining alone but reminded me of cattle class in a budget airline not a comfortable premium airline.
This is local for us and great taste at a discount on first table so bound to be back.
