Up front and honest about wait time, very accommodating to fit in two large families with no booking on a Saturday night. Food was very tasty, but like most asian restaurants more vegetables than meat. Can't be too fussy though.

It's interesting to see how some ethnic restaurants pop up and integrate with rural oz communties. This place is a classic example. The night we went there the placed was packed out with diners and a continual stream of takeaway customers. Despite the full house we were still served in good time and enjoyed a couple of well proportioned tasty... More

Tastes are different along geographic and demographic lines and a chef might be tempted to try to tweak their dishes a little, more to local tastes. It happened to Chinese cuisine and others, maybe it’s happening to Thai. Thai food should be about spice, flavor and maybe a little pain. That’s what I was expecting from Bowral Thai but what...

We came here for a 'quick' dinner before heading back to Sydney that ended up taking two hours. We weren't acknowledged on entering the restaurant, it is quite large and the till is all the way at the back so we had to go and ask for a table, which is no big deal but already not ideal. We ordered... More

This is a BYOB type of place, with good food and nice, cozy atmosphere. Low light, lots of Asian art on the walls, a small waterfall by the entrance, nice Asin design overall. The menu offers a good selection and the staff service is very good too. You say "Thank you", they reply "No worries".

We chose to eat here despite the sign on the door warning that service would be slow that night - in fact, we appreciated the honesty. Drinks arrived relatively quickly and the food, when it did come, was flavoursome with just the right amount of spice. Portion sizes were excellent. The bill was very reasonable given the quality of the... More

If you need to get in, get fed and get out in pretty quick time, this venue will do the trick. The food is good and tasty Thai food with generous portions and very good service from the young staff. Reasonable prices make the visit good value as well. We will certainly be back.
