The food here is great, very tasty and fresh. If you're a tourist, especially in a family group, keep an eye out for the Coolum discount book, because there's a token for getting take-away here. The chicken satay was a stand-out.

I went there first time at lunch. There are many kinds of meal. I choose padthai and my friend choose massaman curry. Both of them were very sweet taste. It's not normal Thai food. I'll never go there again.

We have been eating at this restaurant over the last three years when we visit Coolum on annual holidays. Their $9.90 lunch menu is extensive and great value for money. Highly recommend the Pad Thai and the laksa.
