Cuisine: Thai
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $35

Taste extraordinary Thai cuisine at this award-winning restaurant.

In 2013, the team behind Thai Chef were thrilled to receive the Thai Select Premium award by the Prime Minister of Thailand herself, as a recognition of their traditional and truly authentic dishes.

You’ll enjoy the best of Thailand’s flavours and creations; phad Thai, green curry and tom yum soup grace the menu alongside a huge range of vegan and vegetarian options. Try the chef’s original ‘Famous Chick’ dish, or devour a hearty, traditional kha-nom pang na moo (“sleepy pig in bed”), minced pork and herbs on toast, larb ped duck salad or whole fish in red Thai sauce.

Thai people are known for their big smiles and generous hospitality and Thai Chef’s restaurant is no different; expect great service and a friendly atmosphere.

Large restaurant with views of the park and a lovely thai décor. Love the menus with the humourous names of dishes, nice touch!
Service was very friendly and our meals all arrived quickly and fresh off the grill.
Meals were large and well priced. The chicken satay entrée was possibly the best I've had!

Highly recommended for any Thai food fanatics out there :) Food was amazing! We were seated very quickly and our order was taken as soon as we were ready. Food came out promptly, the only downside was we were left sitting for a while when we were finished and wanting a doggy bag for our left overs.

Many cheap Thai restaurants have great food in a fairly crappy room.
Many expensive restaurants have food fragments drizzled onto a plate with a brush, but you’re sitting in a beautiful room.
Thai chef has done something unique;
Beautiful food, substantial servings, all in a beautifully decorated room.

There were 3 of us at our table and we all enjoyed the great food and surroundings. The highlight was the flaming Ocean Volcano listed under Extraordinary on the menu. It certainly was most impressive!
