Went to House on Thursday night, was quiet when we arrived but got busy by the time we left. Ordered 5 different dishes and all were good, tasted authentic and had a good range. Service was a bit hit and miss, but taste made up for it. Only other thing which was a bit unexpected was $6 for a 3... More

We stopped here because our first choice was closed but it was actually pretty tasty. I ordered the Larb with Duck but they were out of it so I got the duck lunch special and the bamboo salad which was extremely tasty. The prices were reasonable and if I would definitely go back. Several of the items were authentic Thai... More

Get to sit outside and enjoy nice food. Good to have the space in this area and you also have the pub attached. Love their Gai Yang with sticky rice. Good price and quick service for a spot of lunch on a work day.

A little different to your run of the mill Thai, well worth a visit, try the tongue. Adjoins a pub so you won't go thirsty either.

House has some of the best Thai I have had. It is regional Thai food so you see a few things that you wont see at your usual Thai restaurant. As a couple of reviewers have noted, House is owned/run by the same people that run Spice I Am up the road. However, I rate House above Spice I Am.... More

House is owned by the same people as Spice I Am down the road. Whilst the food is good, it isn't as good. The benefit being it is connected to a pub so cheap jugs of beer can wash down your authentic Thai. Still worth a visit, but not as good as Spice I Am. Good for lunch!

This place doesn't look much from the road. I ventured in to ask if they did takeaways as I didn't fancy eating out by myself (business trip). I ordered your standard Thai takeaways - curry puffs and phad Thai. Curry puff filling was tasty, I was a little disappointed with the pastry. Phad Thai again was tasty but the chicken... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
