It's an institution! It's cheap and cheerful but the food never lets you down! I have been coming here for, who knows, over 20 years. It hasn't disappointed yet!

Title pretty much covers it - really good Thai food at a reasonable price. Thaila Thai is noisy, busy, fast paced and just what we wanted.

Top class fresh& simple food. Been coming here for over 7 years & never disappoints. The only problem I have with this place is that it's the only place where I end up overeating every single bloody time...

Went there on a Friday night for a very rare date night, very excited as we had heard it had improved. Had the large mixed entree which had chicken skewers which were dry, fish cakes which were rubber and spring rolls with nothing really in them. Then the two mains came out, whilst the serves are massive the quality and... More

Some of the best Thai food around. Fast and easy to order over the phone. Only draw back is it's cash only. They send you to an atm if you don't have cash on you.

I hadn't been to this joint in about 7years and it it just how I remember it! Great portion of food , friendly welcome by the chef at the front and perfect service. Desperately needs a refurbishment that's not even something that should be thought about twice . We sat upstairs , it is more intimate up there and heating... More

This place used to be good. The little guy behind the counter is really rude. Only after a dollar. He used to own a restaurant in Fitzroy years ago. Still hasn't changed. There are far better Thai places with better service around. Do yourself a favour, at least if you go get takeout so you never meet him
