Thai Terrific is on the expensive side for most Thai restaurants but their food is beautifully fresh, the service is excellent and they use linen napkins - a nice touch compared to the usual ubiquitous paper serviettes!

Locals like to visit here particularly for take out with daily specials and also lunch specials, Requests for some changes to the dishes are met with a smile and it does not appear to faze them. It is a shame that the restaurant does not appear to be busy, as the standard of food and service is always consitent.

I happened upon this great little restaurant down a side street while over nighting in Sydney. It is small, but well lit with all the flair and artisticness of the Thais. The meal itself was delicious, with a wide variety of choices. I had the Pad Thai and Crispy Chicken for the main course and could not fault it. For... More

Just happened upon this, though it's well-light on the outside. It's small, but is like a neighbourhood drop-in place. We noticed a family with a young child who was clearly used to this place. While the menu appears to be similar to other places (salmon; pork ribs, calamari etc), it also has gluten-free options and does salads such as larb,... More

We had few dinners at this restaurant. We always found their Food exceptionally delicious. In fact, This is the place where I had the Best Pad Thai. This is bit costly but at par with other good restaurants in Sydney City.

We visited this restaurant as one member of our group has been there before and rated it as the best Thai they had ever had. It is a cosy little place in a side alley, relatively close to Kings Cross station. The owner was super attentive and the meals were all amazing.

Overall the experience was not bad except that we were sort of rushed out the door towards the end of the evening and it wasn't even really late. Food couldn't really be faulted and the wine was great. We just stumbled across the place so its not as if we went there because it was recommended. I've had better food... More

We were recommended to go here. A smaller restaurant just off the main road. Attentive staff and quick service. Very good for a meal out
