If you want your sauce from a pre-mix 10 litre bucket full of MSG then this place is for you! Food hall quality at restaurant prices.

This was the only restaurant open later for dinner which was great however I was deeply disappointed to find the vegetables in my Pad Siew almost raw and inedible. The spring rolls were quite tasteless too, but the satay chicken entree was lovely. Prices far higher than Sydney, around 30% more expensive for inferior food. At least they saved us... More

We managed to get a walk in table, however they were pretty packed. This still didn't affect their spirits. To waitresses were very lovely and to food was amazing. It's also good to know it's BYO too :)

After a very disappointing Thai meal in Coolangatta during our road trip we decided to try again in Shoal Bay. Really good food and great service. The waitress was on it managing take always and a restaurant at the same time. Highly recommended.

Lovely food and reasonable prices. We only had a takeaway for dinner but friends of ours ate dinner there on Thursday night and raved about it

We always dine here... toilet could be cleaner but the food is delicious. The green curry is a must have and the fried rice doesn't disappoint.

Great food & friendly service. Despite being busy, we didn't have to wait long for our food. Fried rice & chicken satay was fantastic, as was the Choo Chee Goong. We'll be back. ps. I didn't really see anything Japanese on the menu?
