Stopped in with my wife & 2 kids for an early dinner just on 6pm. Food was nice, entrees were ok (curry puffs, spring rolls and tempura prawns) but mains (deep fried calamari, ginger prawns and pad Thai chicken) were better - ingredients were fresh. Service was not bad at all, but aren't the Thai meant to be a very... More

Strictly Thai is one of our favourite local restaurants in the Kew area. We must have eaten there a dozen or more times over the last ten years. Its been a very reliable place and we tend to order much the same dishes on each visit. my wife loves the Thai fish cakes and i am very fond of most... More

Nice Thai restaurant within walking distance from our project site. Friendly waitress and quick service, because we have not much time for our lunch break. The food is nicely presented and delicious

Nice Thai food, pity the restaurant was so quiet as the food was pretty good and reasonably priced. Had the stir fried seafood and chicken curry; both were nice. Plenty of free parking in the car park off the side street.

We love our Thai food - the flavors, the satisfaction of enjoying a great meal without feeling like you're going to pop & the want to eat it everyday. These guys nailed it! Fresh ingredients, delicious plates and that friendly Thai service with a smile (without the constant 'in your face "are you ready to order now" typical waiter' service).... More

Have gone to Strictly Thai for about 20+ years. Always great food and good service. Went tonight, and the food was awful! Curry puffs had good pastry, but pitiful filling; Larb Gai tasted like sautéed chicken + sweet chilli sauce + raw veg. Not pleasing but ok. Then the deep fried fish in curry sauce arrived. If you imagine the... More

We enjoyed a lovely evening at this restaurant with our family to celebrate a great academic accomplishment by a family member. After talking to the chef we ordered some vegetarian and non-vegetarian (chicken)curries, pad Thai noodles, and fried rice. All items tasted great and the service was excellent. If you enjoy Thai food this is definitely worth visiting in Melbourne.

Came here to eat based on a friends recommendation. The food is top quality Thai and not as westernised as other thai restaurants. If you like some good spicy food, they sure have it. Prices are reasonable considering the location. Service is fantastic as the staff are Thai also which helps the situation. I really couldn't fault it. It's definitely... More

When an Asian Restaurant is booked out on a monday night, then you know the food is excellent. Great atmosphere and lovely staff. Good quality food and a good price. We would definitely visit here again. The Pad Thai was delicious, as was the Duck stir fry with Basil and Chili. The Spring Rolls were very good. Look forward to... More

Don't bother, there are great restaurants in the area that are happy to have your patronage and treat you better than the staff at strictly thai. Think twice about buying a groupon or scoupon as they make it difficult to use probably hoping you just give up and they get your money for nothing.
