I have visited this establishment twice over the summer holidays, and can easily say they ticked the box both times. The service here is impeccable. The husband and wife team who run this place are so friendly and inviting, there is nothing they won't do to make your dining experience enjoyable.

The first visit was impromptu after visiting the local movie theatre close by. They offer a $12 'sit back and relax' dine in lunch menu with about half a dozen options. We have the Beef Pad Thai, and Full Moon Chicken. Both were amazing! Although my guest left not an ounce of chicken on her plate, I found it difficult to finish all of mine as the serving was quite generous.

The second visit was also impromptu; we opted for a casual quick and easy dinner and decided to head on over for Thai. We were not disappointed. Our meals included Yum Pla Krob (Crispy Fish Salad), Gang Penang (Beef Penang Curry), and Garlic Pepper Beef. The general consensus at the table was all meals were delicious.

This restaurant has both inside and outside dining. The car parking is plenty, and is easily accessible from Bayswater Road (a local main road). They have a large menu, but also offer a banquet menu option for parties of 4 and more, and run a movie ticket deal with the local cinema next door. They also have another store, out at Kalynda Chase.

Head over and try this place, you will not be disappointed.

Compared to some of the other thai restaurants in Townsville, Thai Smile House has fresh tasting meals. We had the chicken pad thai - which was full of flavour and the red beef curry - which was the right amount of spice and packed full of beef and vegetables. We also ordered the chicken satay sticks and were pleasantly surprised that the satay tasted homemade rather than from a jar. We'll definitely be going back to Thai Smile House (Warrina)

Warrina- the staff are very friendly and willing to look after you. We took their movie deal which includes a ticket to the movies. The food is excellent. Try the Full Moon chicken! Pricing is a touch on the high side for Thai, but between the food, decore and friendly staff, it's worth the visit. You will go back. We have.

We went to the warrina Thai Smile House for the first time. The menu was large, not the cheapest Thai menu I have seen but it wasn't the most expensive either. We finally decided on the banquet. We had a few issues with using our entertainment book, but the staff were very friendly and had a great attitude which was really appreciated! Once we had ordered unfortunately we had a long wait for our food. Upon paying we were told it was a much busier night than expected and that is why the food took longer to come out than normal. Staff also requested that we book. Overall was a good night, just a bad night to come I believe in terms of waiting time.

Warrina......Excellent and tasty food with that authentic Thai flavour. Knowledgable host happy to share info on the various dishes we eventually chose. The squid was amazingly tender and flavoursome, the green curry is a dish you just don't want to share. We will be back to sample the extensive menu...the banquet looks tempting so will just have to round up a couplle more friends.
