Delicious food, lovely ambiance, pleasant staff- only negative thing I can say is my meal wasn’t very warm when I was served (crispy chicken). Aside from that, wonderful. Definitely will return.

The Interior of the restaurant is delightful, and atmosphere very pleasant. Service prompt and attentive, but I expected more of a Thai taste from the food.
The menu was limited and offered Thai specialties, but the flavour was definitely fusion and not Thai, in fact I would hesitate to take Thai friends there as they would be confused and disappointed.

I've been here a few times, and the food and service is immaculate as always. Food arrived promptly and was presented nicely. Portions was good for the price and the staff was very friendly, often catering to us within a few minutes.

The food service decor wines and atmosphere are wonderful —- the flavors are incredible and the food looks like art on a plate. Just amazing. We had the degustation menu. Omg. Yum. The flavors the texture the aroma.. best Thai food I have eaten in a long time and I love Thai food. Not cheap but not outrageously expensive either.... a must visit again. Just wonderful place.

Very high quality Thai food. Everything we had was outstanding. The massaman lamb sauce was the best we’ve ever had, and we have had many! Service was also very friendly and attentive. It is priced above your standard neighborhood Thai restaurant but worth the price. Highly recommended.

Was sceptical trying out this new restaurant at first, but my attitude was swayed by the friendliness of the staff "so welcoming and attentive", the design of the restaurant are magnificent "the gold wallpaper and lightings gives you a relax feeling".

I ordered the betel leave prawns, seared chilli scallops, appethai spring rolls for entree and for main the red duck curry, tom yum king prawns soup and BBQ Wagyu beef.

The food is diffrent to other Thai restaurants, all the flavours work really well together. Not overkill and mixed with other cuisine which ruin the Authentic taste of Thai food like other Thai restaurant.

The wine list is WOW! They have quite a range of wines that goes well with Thai food!
Well done guys!

Will definately come back to try your tasting menus and cocktails.

Thanks for a wonderful evening!! Authentic Thai is back in Darlinghurst!!!
