I will soon need to move from the south side of Cairns and Songkran might be what I will miss most about the area! You truly won't find more delicious and well-priced Thai cuisine anywhere else in Cairns. Furthermore, the service is always exceptional.

My daughters and I had lunch and we couldn’t fault the food or the service. I had a green chicken curry with coconut rice which was amazing. We will be coming back.

The best Thai food in Cairns. Great appetisers. Fantastic stir fries. Delicious curries. Reasonable prices. The only downside is because it is so popular, wait times can be quite lengthy and tables hard to get.
