I have been to this restaurant a few times, usually be for the movies next door.
If you are not on a time limit this can be a very nice place for an intimate dinner with your better half. If you are going to the movies then the staff are very accommodating and will get you out on time. Really good food and cooked to what every spice level you like. For me the pick is the basil prawns cooked Thai style hot, but you can also get them mild. They are licensed so a Chang beer is usually good with dinner.

Thank you for the review, we love the fact that people enjoy the food we prepare here at Thai Smile House. We are always keen to hear if we can improve in anyway, so that the experience only gets better.

We are adding to the drinks list, a cider, and a light beer due to popular demand as well.

Thank you once again for your kind feedback.

Chris, Gai and staff.

My wife and I felt like Thai food, so googled Thai restaurants in Townsville to try a new one.
Well, what a surprise we had!
By far the best Thai food we have enjoyed in 10 years.
We look forward to visiting the Thai Smile House again.

Visited Thai Smile with friends and enjoyed a lovely night out with good food and very friendly hosts. We have only just returned from 3 weeks in Thailand and found the food served here just as good.
Would strongly recommend for a family night out or just a romantic dinner for two.

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)
