The restaurant is a kitchen with tables layed out in the hallway of a stop mall. So forget about the ambiance, this place is all about the food. The sasoma appetizer was taken from the oil and landed in front of our table with the skin hot and crispy and the morsel inside spicy and steamy. The shrimp and ground... More

This is without a doubt the 'Best Value' Thai food restaurant in Manly. The Green Curry Chicken is the best $8 value in all of Manly. The huge plate of fried rice with your choice of chicken or beef for $7 is unbelievable. Most of their lunches are only $8 or $9 for very generous servings. My second favourite dish... More

It's two years since our last visit to this little restaurant with seating in an indoor walk though area. It was delightful to see the tables looking more welcoming to compliment the quality of the food. The tiny cooking area produces some great Thai and Malay based food. The menu is extended by a 'specials' board and attracts a steady... More

Extremely fresh, fast, and authentic. Also very well priced, the lunch specials are great! Would be my favourite casual Thai place.

The setting is a bit dark and isn't particularly celebratory, but the food more than compensates. The banana flower salad is one of the best in Sydney, so well worth the visit. Only disappointing that they don't feature it on the abbreviated lunch menu (from 11.30am).

Just called in for some late evening food. Mean was fine. Stalk were nice. Service was prompt. Would certainly call back. Only comment of a negative point was the surcharge on the card without being told by the staff. Not obvious if you are a tourist.

Having spent a total of 24 years in Thailand, I'd say that this place is very overrated. The food is bland and has none of the complex flavour that all good Thai food has. The Tom Kha Gai, for example, was just chicken boiled in coconut milk and contained no lemon juice, lemon grass, chilly, kaffir leaf or galangal root... More

Staying in Manly

Neighbourhood Profile
A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.
